activism + petitions

Word of the day SLACKTIVISM. So wish I came up with it. It’s making yourself FEEL like you’re doing something to make the world a better place by forwarding an email or signing an online petition or sumthing.
But all yer doing is giving it up to e-pirate marketeers on the high-eeeesss ready to ambush you with stuff you may not want or likely don’t care about. I didn’t know this, but the only real petition is a REAL petition – old skule with paper and signatures and addresses. So it does take more to be more, but isn’t it work it?
In case the link is still wonked out….this is the URL http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/petition/internet.asp
