Why you may well ask, speaking as a graphic designer, they are tacky, tasteless and trashy. Enough said I should think!

    Well I imagine that most of us don’t mind them. What is your reasoning for not liking them? You have not made your case Flutterbutt.

    Where is the petition so I can sign.
    These are usually used by people that can’t see what ‘ART’ truly is.
    I get more out of the environment or space and beyond.
    I promise you won’t see any on my page.!!
    Enough said my friend .

    Ban glitter graphics! One can say “I hope you have a nice day” without attaching a sparkly fairy picture. When you tell someone good morning in real life, do you also hand over a greetings card? Then again, I’m just a guy, so that girly stuff doesn’t appeal to me anyway.

    it reminds me to my youth.. we have so called Poese-albums.. as children… friends write in some poems, oh.. not pretty ones… really trashy, like… “in allen vier Ecken soll Liebe drin stecken” in all four corner should be love… and such things…. and we are used to glue flowers and childrenpics in color… really trashy… a bit like these glitter things… you are so right……

    Someone out there in yahoo 360 please ban glitter graphics … they are tacky tastless and trashy.


    Is it a group that puts on a ban or someone?

    Is it in yahoo 360 that you want the ban or on a larger scale?

    Is it tacky, trashy, tastless people you want to ban or just their free speech through glitter graphics?

    P.S. I’m not a fan of them either………….

    I personally HATE using MySpace because of all the glitter graphics people tend to use. They take forever to load. By the time I load a page, I could have driven over to see the person! IF you want me to visit a page, I like it to be fairly simple to see, and that’s one reason I like 360 so much, I can select “read without theme” and often do (when a page becomes too busy.)

    I can understand where you’re coming from, as a designer as well, there is a tendency to overdue the glitter effect and I always have problems with them anyway, especially with my animation program, but thankfully I am pleased with paint shop pro X, I don’t know what I would do without that!

    Sounds good to me, I also wish we could ban all the dumb hallmark moment chain mail “friend’ messages and “tags” that get sent to everyone on a friends list, I get multiple copies of the same things all the time, if I’m so “loved” and such a good friend then someone can send a real message and not a boring mass produced mail, I’m not referring to you Fluffy but I have other people who keep sending the chain mail stuff, whats your opinion on these ?

    you know what i hate about the chain emails? they always say “pass this on for good luck. if you don’t something bad will happen”. give me a break! i’ve deleted them from the start and i haven’t had any bad luck, that i’ve noticed anyway. also – those chain mail things are GREAT for spreading viruses/worm thingies.

  20. Nigel B said,

    yes, I totally agree with you on this. I have one in use on my myspace page but do not send them out in emails and spammy chain mail emails with the pass this on to all your etc… Hate them too.

    i admit to being too graphically challenged to use them, so you won’t ever see any from me ~laughs~

    Ha ha ha ha … as long as they don’t ban long blog entries! I’d be out of job then and would be forced to get work as a musician LOL!!! Hugs – Gerard

    Of all the things to ban I should think “lol” “lmao” etc. should be amoung the first. I am a graphic designer too but a good one knows that not every design is right for every person. And I may be a bit old fashioned but I still believe the client is always right. There are a lot of people who enjoy them so who am I to judge.

    Ya, I get glitter splashed about half a dozen times a day. Gag me with a spoon!
