    Petition
    This is hopefully the last petition being started in lieu of Warner's recent non-OAR trend of family films on DVD. This isn't title specific so if you are opposed to the way Warner has been issueing it's family films, please sign it.
    Thank you.

    When I previewed my signature on this petition, I was number 65. By the time I clicked on the final "accept" button (maybe a couple of seconds at most), I was number 66.
    Seriously, everyone who signed either or both of the other two title-specific petitions should sign on to this one as well.

    I've signed this petition, and I can see the numbers are increasing rapidly...
    I didn't plan to buy neither WW or C&D, but since this is about company policy in general I think *everybody* should sign this!

    My comments:
    "As an AOL-TimeWarner stockholder and a DVD enthusiast, I am greatly disappointed in Warner's recent move away from OAR presentations. I will never purchase any DVD that does not include an OAR presentation! In addition to turning your back on the DVD enthusiast community, who is largely responsible for the success of the DVD format, I honestly believe that this will adversely affect the corporation's bottom line. You can bet when I get my next chance to make my voice heard as a shareholder, you will be hearing from me!"

    Mark me down for #134.
    This is unbelievable. I've never purchased a DVD that was P&S/FullFrame when it should have been widescreen. And I expect that I never will.
