    Didn't Bank of America back off ATM fees after their customers started an online petition? Only successful one I can think of.

    I just don't want it to have a total of 12 signatures, whether it does any good or not. :)

    No. They dropped fees because several Congressmen talked to them and threatened legislation.


    White House has been running petitions for years and nothing was accomplished by them. If you want change, nothing beats calling & voting with your POCKETBOOK.

    Want BOR back? Call up Sirius and tell them you're canceling until they bring it back. But how many people here still have Sirius? :D

    And these online petitions are just slacktivism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slacktivism

    Oh absolutely, the petitions are designed to make you feel like you're doing something, but sometimes they have an effect. I remember signing one for a teenager whose picture was banned from his school yearbook because he was waving a rainbow flag in it. He got thousands of signatures and a lot of attention AND he got in the yearbook. :)

    This is tough ...

    I hate Jason and Ted with a passion, so the cancellation was nice in a way. But I did enjoy the show ... Though they had no balls when callers spoke negatively about wiggy

    Who knows if this will have much effect, but I signed and dropped a zoo za zoo in the comment box.
