    agreement with the speaker in however they want. If wiggling fingers doesn't cut, perhaps raising hands, quiet clapping motions, thumbs up, whatever. Nothing to get hung up on.   I actual met a woman who said she agreed with Occupy but left because of the wiggling fingers, as if that was some requirement.

      Why would something like that cause activists to leave?
