MoveOn Tests Open Petition Platform
BY Nancy Scola | Monday, April 18 2011
Now in beta is MoveOn do-it-yourself online petition tool. Meet SignOn.
It's being used in Maine to demand the creation of a recall process, for one thing, but according to the site's FAQ, the use of SignOn isn't limited to the sort of core issues MoveOn works on -- or to anything, for that matter: "SignOn.org does not endorse the content of any campaign on our site, and we don't remove petitions simply because we disagree with them."
That said, MoveOn -- not you -- does get to keep the email addresses of the people who sign onto your petition. (via Kombiz Lavasany)
