Passive Aggressive Politeness

I'm at Angel Falls right now even though I took this picture a year (ish) ago....and hadn't posted it yet. The fact that this sign is laminated and attached to an "official" position makes it only barely a fit with my notions of grass roots action and an invitational discursive sphere (which I usually associate with polite paper signs) on the other hand this sign's strong lean into politeness (at least enforcing some conventional notions of politeness, conventions with endangered convention status given the proliferation of mobile-device-based-identity) qualifies it well for my collection.
