Most normal people realize that Internet petitions are ineffective. Because they’re easy to set up and sign, they remain popular among the intellectually lazy. So it’s hardly a surprise that some new kook has come along to give it a shot.

The list itself is the usual re-hash of irrelevant trivia, half-truths and outright lies that these weirdos deal in.
