Cybermites attack the petition!
Oct 8, 2013 — It seems someone inserted some cybermites into our petition to upgrade our petition numbers. While we appreciate whatever signatures are obtained here, we want the numbers to be pure. Change.org has rid our petition of the evil cybermites, which resulted in us learning there were approximately 4000 less signatures than we'd thought.
We're assuming these were cybermites as opposed to cybermats, as they were pretty advanced. In any case, the total number is accurate now, and as of this writing, at about 28,000.
