Ask to allow members to comment on and discuss petitions they do not wish to sign

It is not currently possible to comment on or discuss petitions unless you sign them first. This, in effect, forces members to sign petitions with which they disagree in order that they can voice that disagreement and/ or start a discussion on the petition. Please sign this petition to ask to alter that policy and to allow members to discuss petitions on the site without the requisite of signing them first. 


**The ability to comment on any  petition without signing was removed due to constant reports of abusive, inappropriate  and threatening language.'s site and utilities are free of charge to the general public. As such, there is a limited bandwidth of available support.  The actual maintenance required for removing comments and monitoring petition boards was a task that was quickly becoming unmanageable.

  There are any number of forums and message boards where users can go to vent and argue back and forth about issues.  There are only a few where people can go to create online petitions for  CHANGE.  At the end of the day it was determined that the ability to comment on petitions without signing was not conducive to the core purpose for this site.  If anyone disagrees with a petition that person  should feel free to start their own petition.  **

Best Regards,
