I believe in freedom of speech, as most people do. I do not, however, believe that freedom of speech should absolve the speaker of the consequences of the impact of their words.

There are petitions on Change.org which are racist, sexist and discriminatory in nature and I feel that for these petitions it is important to be able to report that a petition is not acceptable.

A simple report button beside a petition would make it possible for Change.org participants to raise concerns about specific petitions to be reviewed, and possibly removed, by Change.org staff if necessary.

      I need this because my friend has recently made a costume for a character of a video game she likes, she put up a picture of facebook censoring her cleavage for dignity. A perverted stranger has made a petition to try and make her remove the censor. I am NOT happy about this.

      I agree, this needs to be a place where people can state their own opinion about issues, but not use this site to be abusive to others, which has nothing to do with freedom of speech.
