Please do not post the "Maxine" character to Free Republic
rec'd via email | April 30, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 04/30/2012 5:07:17 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Received a takedown request from the copyright/trademark holder. Please do not post the Maxine character to FR. Even as parodies. They respect our rights to free speech, but do not appreciate Maxine voicing our opinions.

If you spot a post of Maxine (examples: google/search/images/maxine ), please alert the moderators via abuse report so we can remove it.

Thanks,

Jim

It’s still ok to parody Maxine Waters, though, right? :)

Thanks for the search link.

I honestly had no who you were talking about. I didn’t know the sarcastic card woman had a name...

I am awaiting the suits/decrees to be filed against the left-leaning sites...

It’s open season on Maxine Waters parodies (without the “Maxine” character). Hell, Maxine Waters is a parody.

Greetings Jim Robinson:

Hope the Maxine copyright holder also makes a similar facebook cease order bringing an end all the facebook Maxine image spam.

Cheers,

Y’know that thing about the alligators and the moat and the Rio Grande Obama jokes about - that’s where it came from, Maxine.

Yes it's a shame.

I never saw anyone use anything other than Maxine's own words.

It's fine that they don't want any of the 'maxine' material posted here.

I think we should also keep in mind that you might want to not ever purchase any merchandise with the maxine character on it either. Don't think I ever have, but now definitely won't going forward.

Up yours maxine!

I agree. Never saw what anyone thought was of any kind of entertainment value. Probably just greed for a piece of crap comic that is gasping for it’s last few breaths...uh dollars.

Maxine “ugly on the inside, ugly on the outside” Waters.

Her face looks like it is melting; she should have a chat with Pelosi.

Socialist.

“Maxine” is a third rate cartoon character that is completely devoid of wit or humor.

You see her sometimes on very annoying odd greeting cards, also.

Why anyone would post Maxine is beyond understanding.
