It must be somebody who wasn't sincere Kate's mom. It's certainly not a joke that I find funny. No matter where you go and what you do you will find a fly in the ointment somewhere.

Kim alot of sites like these are strictly for hosting petitions. They provide the site to do it and do accept adveritising. Occassionally a "conflict" will happen.

It costs money to block content ads at the petition site. I'll look into it....

Re: The Online Paxil Protest Petition -- Please sign

If you have not already: you should also sign the "old petition" as well (which contains about 10,000+ signatures.)

The one I have created has a far more extensive set of demands (which is why I created it.)

There are thousands of people that are no longer in a position to sign the new petition (but we won't go into that.....)

I have signed the new petition and I may have signed the old one but I have no idea where to look.
