McCann's petition for full review - some very interesting information



Posted by jjp on Headlines today

The McCann petition on ipetitions.com got me wondering about online petitions in general.

So I signed up to ipetitions.com using a temporary throw-away email address.

My account was confirmed and within seconds I was the owner of the following page.

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/serious_petitions/

Immediately, I decided to sign my own petition.

So I invented a completely fake email address – 123@g.com and proceeded to sign.

Not a problem – signature on view within five seconds.
Could I sign again using the same fake email address? Why not give it a go I thought? And lo and behold within another few seconds my petition had received its second signature both from the same fake email account.
