Yes I frequently sign them. I do not sign every one, only the causes I believe in. I like that when I sign a petition I often receive feedback about how successful or not, the capaign was. I am surprised that it seems to effect change. It is an easy way to make a difference as I cannot afford to donate money to so many worthy causes. I used to write letters for Amnesty International- and I think that petitions and letter writting are effective.

I often sign online petitions. Like others have said, it's an quick, easy, and non-monetary way of affecting change.

Haven't signed any thus far. I deem the cause is worthy enough I would sign one. Generally however, i would be flippant about affixing my signature or identity to any random cause. I feel that I could be targeted one way or another. As I have seen with persons who make comments or Facebook or twitter on certain issues.
No. I cant be bothered.
If I feel it would need signing, and a very good cause then yes every time.

Sometimes I see other petitions, and have been known to sign a lot more on other causes for over an hour.

When people turn a blind-eye, to injustice....or a good cause, makes me want to cry.

We all need to help in some small way,our world is not getting better, and every little bit helps.
I think when we do something positive like this,it also helps our heart get bigger too :)

I agree with you. It takes very little time to care and effect big change sometimes.

I have done. If it is an important matter, I will sign,
there hasn't been anything recently though.
Yes Ido sign online petitions.
I've signed a few when I have felt strongly about the issue. I am a bit careful to see that it is legit though.

It woukd have to be something that really needed my online signature before I would even consider it and for the same reason as some of the others, you could be targeted by advertisers and that contributes to more spam in the inbox.
no I do not sign online petitions
Yes sometimes I do. It can effect change for the better.
Oh yes I sign on line petitions if its for a good cause, some of them if I am unsure about I wont sign. How are we able to get things done if we say nothing and do nothing.
Exactly. Well said.
by Vee
Oh my goodness, all the time. I really like to think me trying to take part and make my opinion and voice count that it goes at least some way in making a difference.
Not done so as yet.

IF 'cause' is deemed by me worthwhile, I may do.

Same reason as paper petitions'.
Yeah, same as paper petitions.
