This is why I don’t sign petitions, and DailyKos just broke my trust, and reconfirmed that these petitions are just click-bait to harvest your email addresses. This is why I avoid change dot org, and now DailyKos has joined that list.

I signed a petition to reject Betsy Devos, or more specifically a page that automatically submitted my message to my State Senator — nowhere was there any mention of being added to a mailing list, or that this will result in a deluge of spam. These methods are dishonest, and they piss people off — and subsequently undermine and work against whatever cause they claim to support.

  1. It’s dumb, because they only hurt themselves and their causes.

    Maybe I should put up an honest petition site that does it right?
