Hello Friends, I'm curious to know how how other friends feel about this....

As I wander around the petition site I have noticed that there's petitions for pledges and I have even received some petitions where people were honest and said they created the petition to receive butterflies to be able to feed a kittne or give life saving suds etc.....

To me I don't have a problem with the pledge petitions....The Butterfly petitions I also don't have a problem with IF I know that they are going to the causes. I check their profile and if they have an outrageous amount of butterflies and very little cause badges then I don't sign.....BUT the pledge petitions and the butterfly one's, where the butterflies are being used for causes and not just a number I will sign but I don't forward to friends because I don't want to annoy anyone.....

What are your thoughts on these types of petitions?

I created a few petitions asking people to sign as a vow to pray for certain causes. I don't know about pledge petitions. My prayer petitions were created to encourage people to pray, and to help give me an idea of how many people are participating in prayer. I felt it was important to ask people to pray, for I deeply believe in prayer.I don't recall recieving butterflies for that, but I just felt it was God's will to encourage prayer. I guess the sad thing about this world is that there are so manydishonest people, but I don't think we should discourage honest people from creating pledge petition. I guess you just have to be wise about it and check their home page! That's about all you can do.
