My apologies - I hope you read the following petition I signed and DID NOT! I wasn't feeling well yesterday though no excuse.....
Anyone know how to UNSIGN a petition?
This post was modified from its original form on 22 Feb, 6:02
Val. I tried to unsign this petition, but it said that the page has been moved. I checked and only 69 signatures are on it. I don't know if Care2 did something to where you can't click on the link that is given you when they send you a comformation of your signature or not. The only thing that I know for you to do. I post the petition BIG and tell everyone NOT to sign it. I really didn't read it, because I was in a hurry also. Some people opt out of the conformation e-mails, so that is all I know that you can do.
TRIED TO BE MORE CAREFUL TODAY - PLEASE DO NOT SIGN THE FOLLOWING PETITION - NOT FEELING REAL WELL AND DIDN'T READ ALL.
(unsure exactly what this is all about but think OK)
(not a great target group but trying - don't feel real weel toady for some reason)
There are some others out there but didn't totally agree with them.

Just tried the other browser - works - but maybe something with that browser and the glitch I fixed after posting those made it mess up - let me know if you have any other problems. I'll check with the other group.
Val they all work today. One way you can tell, is that after posting the petitions and news, if they are still black, and not blue and underlined, that the link will not be active. I am glad that you were able to fix the problem, and glad that you are feeling better. Have a great day.
Thank You Val, all signed.
ps. something wrong at Care2 sites. Trying to solve it.
All signed without any problem thanks Val for your hard work

Kathleen - it's weird. I posted them here and then in another group - the other group had no problem. I see what you mean though ???? Gremlins at work.

All signed. Tori that conformation e-mail that you get to enable you to remove your signature, doesn't always work. I tried earlier this week, and Care2 had moved the page.

Please help me with this new petition I just started, let's make sure these deprave people are put away for a long, long time!
MCSO Keith Kiefer
Apparently for two men arrested Thursday, "doing it doggy style" meant finding people on the internet who would let them have sex with their dogs.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced the arrests of Keith Kiefer, 47, and Patrick Trejo, 25, after an ongoing investigation revealed the men were using Craigslist to try and find dog owners willing to offer up their pooches for sexual activity.
Arpaio says the investigation, which began in December, started because deputies "became aware" that people were using Craigslist to try and nail non-humans.
Detectives began to decipher the secret language used in the having-sex-with-animals circles -- leading them to Kiefer, who is unemployed, and Trejo, a music teacher at Raul H. Castro Middle School in Phoenix.
Apparently they were actually willing to engage in some puppy love, as Arpaio says the two men agreed to meet a man and his dog at a local hotel for some sex acts before the cops arrested them.
In case you missed it, this isn't the first time this week the cops have arrested some alleged perv of being fascinated with bestiality -- click here for that one.
