Disappearing signatures on Petition for Gordon Brown to resign?


Interesting. Try this:

Go to the petition’s site, note down the number of petitions, then refresh the screen. Why are there fewer signatures each time the screen is refreshed?

Example:

At 12:20 on 25th April 2009, the number of signatures was at 6174.
At 12:22, the number of signatures was 6170.

What’s going on here?

    They do remove spam entries, so that is part of what you are seeing, but you are not the only one to fear more manipulation than this.
