Actually, that's not by me. A group of us is working on a different petition, but I'd like to keep all details confidential until we're ready to go. Not that I don't support this petition, too...

There are Facebook groups with similar agendas. I started one a long time ago with a group of people that called for the WMF to make sure that all pornographic material was given by the subject with proof of a release and age verification.

In that case, using message boards to promote an internet petition is quite a double-fail. evilgrin.gif

Your logic stops when people actually start doing something, rather than simply bitching about things on some stupid message board.

It's clear from this thread that this is one thing that happening....and that something else is happening.

You can call it stupid....or you can be part of it.

Your choice, of course....

It can cause confusion, especially when a more organized and more highly-publicized petition comes out on the heels of this one. This petition doesn't even name the sponsor, so it lacks some credibility, in my opinion.

I'm going to wait for Sanger's petition, because when I promote that one on Facebook and Twitter, I don't want my friends and contacts thinking it was the same petition that we see here.

Mod note: Thread title adjusted, to reduce said potential somewhat.

Maybe I can explain things for Mr. Angel's benefit.

He is of course quite free to waste his time on this sort of thing. That is his choice. However, wasting others' time is a different issue. Also, detracting from Dr. Sanger's work, which might just have some chance of being useful, is bad unless he is deliberately trying to do so (which of course I would never suggest).

What we need is less low-quality homebrew porn and more high-quality stuff that could actually be used.

And what someone needs to do is organise a vote on which are the 10 best penis shots (5 flaccid, 5 erect) then delete every other penis pic. Then do the same for female genitalia.

Been proposed before and stated to be anti-German, racist, homophobic, etc. You name it, they claimed it as an excuse to not do such a thing.
