There is a free online petition service at http://www.petitiononline.com/petition.html which I think would work better IMHO.
It keeps track of the number of petitions
It's easier to post links to it outside tron-sector.com
If someone accidentally posts twice or whatever in the current petition thread we won't need an admin to go in and edit it
You don't have to be a member of t-s.com to sign it (Less steps in signing a petition, the more people are willing to do it)
I'm not good at drafting a petition for this so I would suggest Cliff do it (Since he's the admin of this site...carries some weight in my opinion)
Anyhow, that's me.
All in favor?
