Most of our readers will know by now that Sabine McNeill made a third appearance on Richie Allen’s “I totally believe in SRA, but trust me I’m a journalist” show on Thursday night. We won’t venture an opinion as to whether she violated her restraining order; we’ll leave that up to the police.
However, one thing interested us about the show: Richie made a point of asking his listeners to visit the petition which was set up to demand that the IPCC re-investigate the Hampstead hoax.
Petition? we wondered…what petition? Surely he wasn’t pointing people toward Kristie Sue Costa’s now-defunct petition, which was removed from iPetition a few days ago for breaching that site’s terms of service, thanks to the quick action of this blog’s readers.
We checked Richie’s Twitter feed…
…and sure enough, it turned out that Kristie Sue had re-started the same petition over on a new petition site. This time, the lucky winners were Change.org.
Within a couple of hours, though, we’d heard from several people who’d written to Change.org to let them know that the petition violated not only their terms of service, but both UK and US laws.
And within another couple of hours…
Ah well, Kristie Sue. As Angie would say, “Nice try, no cigar”.
Perhaps she’d have better luck with petitions that didn’t break the law or violate the privacy of innocent children and families.
Meanwhile, many thanks to all of you who wrote to both iPetitions and Change.org to let them know what Kristie Sue and her fellow conspiranoids were up to. Keep it up—your actions really are making a difference.
