This article on Snopes.com (http://www.snopes2.com/inboxer/petition/internet.htm) explains why online petitions are a waste of time.

This is the same site that recently ran a poll opposing Peter Jackson's use of the title The Two Towers for the upcoming second part of the LotR film trilogy, as it was obviously a sick and pernicious use of the 9/11 tragedy to hype the film.

So I'd be cautious about believing in the reality of any poll posted there. Someone might just be having you on.

The (sometimes his sarcasm is lost) Curtmudgeon was saying just that! The person behind the WEBSITE was saying it was a sick attempt to use 9/11.

It turns out the TT petition was a joke, and a too subtle one at that. It's the kind of thing that teaches one the fact that nothing is too stupid that someone won't believe in it.

Right, Dave. My point was only that any petition you find on that site might or might not be a joke rather than a real petition. The person who started the Apollo 1 Fire petition may be serious about wanting to find "the smoking gun" (assuming that it wasn't found long ago, as most of us here believe), or he may just be yanking the chains of all the HBs out there. There's simply no way to tell.
