When Yahoo axed Geocities free websites on Oct 26th 2009, it managed to splinter the personal histories of millions of people who cut their designing and communications milk teeth on Geocities.
Our disbelief and disappointment have snowballed into a frustration which demands solutions acceptable to both Yahoo as well as ourselves.
On September 29, 2009, a tsunami hit the Samoan islands, which killed hundreds of people and destroyed homes and entire villages.
Relief efforts are underway throughout the United States. Such endeavors in the greater Los Angeles area are led by churches, Chiefs, community organizations, and human rights activists. All have been instrumental in collecting goods based on needs communicated directly from those devastated by the disaster.
On September 30, 2009, President Barack Obama declared the events in American Samoa as a major disaster, thus authorizing FEMA to move forward with its work.
FEMA has since responded to American Samoa via directives from the Governor Togiola Tulafono.
Yesterday, October 9, 2009, Congresswoman Laura Richardson (http://richardson.house.gov/)
met with Samoan-American church leaders, elders, Chiefs, and community organizations actively involved in relief efforts within the Southern California area. She disclosed how actively involved her office has been with Congressman Faleomavaega, the Secretary of State office, FEMA, and Governor Togiola.
After days of deliberation to address logistical needs of the local relief efforts to obtain FEMA's assistance with air transportation, the community was told that Governor Togiola refused to sign the letter to FEMA activating the use of C-17's to transport now 360+ pallets of donated goods ready to go to American Samoa and Samoa, which are now placed in parking lots.
Waratah Park Earth Sanctuary, Home of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, is currently leased by Prudentia Investments and its future is uncertain.
We, the community, do not want this land to become just another housing estate. We cannot allow this to happen, this is a beautiful piece of land and an iconic part of Australian History. This is a matter of urgency! NSW Lands needs to take responsibility & claim back this land and return it to the community.
We call on the Government to acknowledge the dire state of affairs that currently confront Waratah Park. The Government must acknowledge the historical significance of the site and the recognition it commands throughout Australia and world wide. We also call on the Government to direct the Heritage Council to consider the inclusion of Waratah Park, particularly the iconic ranger cottage, on the State's Heritage Register.
We must ensure that the site is preserved under public ownership and remains open for the enjoyment and benefit of the people of New South Wales. This is a real challenge for the current Government, and we urge it to meet that challenge.
Do you want to help STOP further ways for convicted criminals and hackers to intrude into our families & social circles?
The effects that something like Facebook has on all our societies, throughout many countries and their cultures, is of great importance.
When we consider major issues in our legal systems, communities & countries as a whole, we obtain an already gray picture that seems to continuously fade into black. This blackness represents our values, standards and human rights as a whole.
Facebook (as nieve as we all sometimes are) is damaging our lives from something as small as persistent messages and advertisment, right the way through to the biggest issues such as data protection, child abuse, rape & MURDER!
I'm not sure is you have noticed but this "ever growing" culture that insights all kinds of marriage/relationship break-ups and even bullying in our schools, is slowly taking over our general way of life. The schemes that facebook presents are most evil as they come in forms of entertainment and communication, very subtly sucking in our children, wives, husbands, fathers, & mothers to spend increasing amounts of time "stuck" the screen, presenting ever more tempting opportunities for people to indulge themselves in fantasies (good/bad) which have huge side affects. Boundaries according to cultural and sociological criteria shouldn't be broken by way of deliberately enticing people to do so just to line their own pockets.
I feel these affects need to be addressed and considered when deciding the functionality of something thats so easy to cease but can obtain uncontrollable amounts of power......I'm not 100% religiously inclined in any direction but I know...
If there is a Devil, Facebook would definitely be a useful tool for the destruction of society as we know it.
The facebook application Farm Pals lets you get a free dog if you get 10 friends to sign up.
However, once you get the dog, no one can steal from the farm at all, and you cannot remove the dog, or distract it.
As human beings, many people would like the option to not just like, ignore or hide. We would like to dislike as well.

Global Petition Coordinator:
I would like to invite you to help make "Meat Free Monday" adopted by governments around the world. Ghent, Belgium's officials have created an official "veggie" only day - recognizing the many benefits that a plant based diet has on the environment (not to mention human health).
Now you can urge other governmental bodies to do the same. Lend your support by visiting the official international facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/group.php?gid=109725730676&ref=ts
If you’re not on facebook you can visit this website
for a list of all the "offical" meat free petition movement that is taking place around the globe
I look forward to your thoughts and input on how to make this the best possible plant strong collaborative effort so that our veggie vision is soon shared by those in office and the public at large. We welcome new people who want to take an active role.
All the best,
Global Meat Free Monday Team
OfferPal, an advertisement company frequently used by FaceBook applications has been consistently mis-leading FaceBook users, failing to credit them for their promised *rewards* in various FaceBook applications, and in essense collecting people's personal information, which can be sold for a profit, without consistently paying the applications, such as Fish Wrangler, so that the users of these applications can then, in turn, be credited their *virtual rewards* from the applications. This has been complained about by thousands of Offerpal participants over a period of time and yet OfferPal has made no effective effort to solve the problems they are having with running their business.
They are making money off of Facebook users, or the ad companies they are failing to properly screen or force to pay, and the FaceBook applications that rely on them to fund their sites, through the time and effort of the Facebook Members is going un-paid, and thus un-credited. Both the applications using Offerpal to advertise and the FaceBook members who have taken part in Offerpal offers and surveys have been scammed repeatedly, not only out of our time but out of our highly personal information.
For those who believe New York State should have the death penalty for cop killers. Cops risk their lives each and every day for the lousy pay the city gives them. They are out there doing their best to protect the citizens of NY. But who's there to protect them?
These killers don't care if they go to jail. They go off to prison and receive free room & board, free hot food, a gym, cable tv AND a college education if they want it and free medical! I spent tons of money to get my degree. Why does a killer get rewarded with free education? And all these perks are being paid by our taxes. It just doesn't make sense to me. It completely disgusts me that some democrats vote NAY on the death penalty. These animals take the life of one of our guardian angels, go to prison for a few years and then they are allowed to be free on parole to kill again.
Our fallen heroes don't get a second chance. They don't get to come back and walk the streets again. The families of the slain officers don't get a second chance at holding their loved ones once more. They don't get a chance to say 'I love you'. They didn't even get a chance to say good bye.
This is a petition requesting all international graduates from UK Universities to fight for rights for the post study work visa. So many international students have been rejected the post study work scheme because of shortfall in funds which was not clearly explained. This is unfair and seriously questions the credibility of this rule as it is intentionally meant to rob students of their post study work permit. This is discriminatory and racist.
This petition is being made for the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the founder of facebook. He needs to know what kind of scum there is on facebook and that he needs to remove these offensive and vicious people from facebook forever.
Facebook was supposedly set up as a social network to communicate with family and friends. Yet it has turned into such a nasty and horrible place for many people. The hurt that is being caused to people like Jade goodys family and friends needs to stop.
There are many many more sick groups on facebook too. And i plead to you Mark Zuckerberg to get all these groups and people removed.
As consumers, no one finds it fair and right that people can purcase tickets for shows, concerts and sports events and then sell the tickets on eBay to make a massive profit!
The Ning company has made decisions recently that has alienated its Network Creators and put the hard work of its Network Creators in jeopardy.
Ning promised to give control and ownership of networks to Network Creators. If members wished to pay additional fees, that could remove all references to Ning.
To join our networks, members had to first join Ning, We accepted this; it had a similar feel to "Open Id". Ning promised us that they would never try to steal our members or try to behave as if they "owned " our networks.
Then followed a series of T.O.S. changes, closing their much-touted open API, and shutting off Network Creator access to their data, and many other ill-conceived changes.
Now Ning has decided to try and become Facebook by stealing the members that Network Creators worked hard to build. Their most recent changes would negate the hundreds, in some cases thousands of dollars that Network Creators have put into the networks.
In the process, Ning has exposed our members private information without their consent and knowledge. They conviently changed their Terms of Service before this change, but our members were not aware of this because we were not made aware.
Ning refuses to sell current network owners their member data so that they can move elsewhere. When Ning reneged on their promise to welcome adult networks and then booted adult networks, those network creators were given full access to their content. This proves that it can be done even though Ning currently claims that it can not. Ning also refuses to offer any alternatives for those unhappy with the changes other than to lose months of hard work.
To top it off, Ning has recently decided to charge astronomical support fees when they already offer little support. Support, by the way, also means listening to what your customers need.
Whereas, Facebook summarily disabled the "Defend Marriage" profile without notice and would not respond to email, facsimile, or phone contact.
And whereas, the use of pseudo-profiles is widespread on Facebook even while no publicly transparent schema exists to eliminate said profiles.
And, whereas there is no public evidence to confirm that the aforementioned policy is either regular or uniformly applied.
And whereas, the "Defend Marriage" profile was singled out for disablement while other obvious pseudo-profiles remained (Aclu Ky, BU Aclu, Aclu Clarion, Aclu Ou, Aclu Hls, Aclu Gonzlaw, Aclu Utah, Marriage Equality, Marriage Equality Ri, Marriage Equality Florida, Glbt Voter, Glbt Equality, Glbt Section, Mike Glbt, Glbt Ucv, Glbt Mauricie, Glbt Cambodia, Ahmnp Glbt, Gtlovebug Glbt, Glbt Shirts, Glbt Center, Glbt Rights, Lgbt Public-Safety Committee-Utah, Lgbt Public-safetycommittee Utah, Indianapolis Lgbt Film Festival, and on and on...).
And, whereas Facebook gives ample prima facie evidence of committing de facto discrimination through the arbitrary application of the aforementioned policy.
And finally, whereas, Facebook is a semi-public forum much like that of a typical shopping mall, and therefore, though private, obligated to extend a reasonable measure of personal freedoms in its sphere of control.
This petition has been set up to try to get the owners of the social networking site Facebook to remove the restrictions they put on members who like to 'poke' their friends on the service.
106. Recognize Kurdistan
We, the Kurdish people of Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Syria, are a group of over 40 million people. Our culture and heritage is not fully recognized by the countries we live in, yet we continue to be a proud people and proud of our history.
Although international political boundaries do not recognize the Kurdish people or a country of Kurdistan, we would like Facebook to recognize our heritage and provide a Kurdistan option when selecting network, residence or birthplace.
We aren't harming anyone
We should have the right to get support
We should be allowed to freely express ourselves
We post warnings on all our groups
We should be allowed to help each other
We don't support "healthy" girls becoming ill
We aren't doing anything illegal
Some of you may have heard that GCap Media were brought by Global Radio for around £375 Million in June 2008. Since then, Global have started re-branding some local stations.
On Friday 21st November, Global Radio re-branded Power FM (103.2fm), this is now part of Galaxy FM.
Over the next 12-18 months, it is expected that Ocean FM will be re-branded to 'Heart'.
Source (Wikipedia): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean_FM_(UK)
I don't want this to happen & I'm sure you don't either!
The 'Ocean' name has been on our airwaves since 12th October 1986, and it will be a great shame if we lose it!
The local community have requested that a skatepark be built in the city of Laurel, within Prince George's County Maryland. Everyday the local skateboarders in the community are being kicked out and banned from everywhere they go, even when there are not other pedestrians around.
Everywhere the local skateboarders skate, there is always an individual who call the police or threatens the skateboarders to leave, otherwise he will be forced to contact the authorities.
The city of Laurel, Maryland has a large population of skateboarders with no where to go, without getting in trouble. Building a skatepark will help keep the local skateboarders out of the streets and away from potential dangers.
We've waited far too long for Facebook to realise that we ARE NOT LONDON!!!
John has started an online action group to appeal Facebook's decision, and 11,956 members have already joined.
Norwich was the eighth most prosperous shopping destination in the UK in 2006
In November 2006 the city was voted the greenest in the UK
129500 (2006 est) people live in the Norwich City Council area. Norwich is the fourth most densely populated Local Authority District within the East of England
Norwich is sometimes portrayed in the UK media as a place which is remote, unsophisticated, gauche, and out-of-step with national trends. This is perhaps primarily due to its geographical isolation, and an identification of Norwich as the epitome of Norfolk, a largely rural county. However, Norwich was the second city of England (after London) for several centuries before industrialisation, which came late to Norwich due to its isolation.
We the people of Pakistan, the silent majority are deeeply saddened by the resignation of President Parvaiz Musharraf.
We here break our silence to show the world that we are behind Mr. Musharraf and would like to see him back as he is the only one who gave democracy a chance in Pakistan.
The current statute of limitations on Civil Rights are discriminatory, they favor the employer and the corporations and deny the victim of racial discrimination the opportunity to seek justice and fairness.
IN most all cases of racial discrimination investigated by the EEOC the investigation is a long drawn out process where the wheel of justice and due process is delayed by the defendant/Employer and their legal council. The employer’s legal councils will deliberately delay the process to allow for statute of limitations to run out. This denies the victims their rights to file criminals complaints against witnesses who commit the crimes of perjury, fraud, obstruction of justice and so on.
In almost all cases the due process and wheel of justice is purposely slowed down by the employer’s legal council that allows the statute of limitations to run out that deny the victim the opportunity to file criminal complaint.
Corporations and employers benefit from short 3 and 5 years statute of limitations and it places the victim of racial discrimination at a great disadvantage. There is absolutely no benefit to the victim by having a 3 and 5 year statute of limitations. Congress and the Senate have willfully placed these short statute of limitations to favor the corporations and employers and place minorities at great disadvantage. This is a willful racial discrimination by the Congress and the Senate.
There is not a single benefit for the minorities. They claim these short statute of limitations will require the victims to bring their charges before the case gets too old but in reality it is a scam Congress and the Senate has pulled on minorities because it really places victims of discrimination at a disadvantage and allows corporations and employers to get away committing crimes of perjury, fraud, and obstruction of justice.
There should be no limit on racial discrimination victims and absolutely no statute of limitations on civil rights violations.
Please support this petition and urge your elected representatives to remove all statute of limitations on civil rights violations.
113. ban facebook
facebook is one of the worst websites i have ever seen if anybody is thinking of signing up to join forget it all they want from you is your personal info which is wrong
Facebook Snubs Derby
Thousands of people have joined an online campaign to have a Derby page on the social networking website Facebook.
Join here if you want a Derby Network!!!
Katie has started an online action group to appeal Facebook's decision, and nearly 5,500 people have already joined.
Katie is confident the website will include Derby if enough people join the cause. The key to her campaign's popularity could come down to the competition between cities in the East Midlands.
Derby was most likely overlooked because of its smaller population, but recent redevelopment in Derby makes it worthy of a place alongside Nottingham and Leicester.
This group is a petition to Facebook to Create Proper UK County Networks.
In doing so, FB will finally be recognizing the UK as a nation (we are currently listed as Great Britain).
At the moment, USA and Canada have State Networks, with major towns associated with each network. Yet in our list, there is one county listed (West Midlands) and (apart from Wales) the rest are a few cities. There is no Network for England or Scotland and poor old Northern Ireland has been relegated to 'networks elsewhere'.
It is a big mess and, despite being continuously asked to sort it out, Facebook has left it that way for several years.
March 2014 will mark 50 years since the release of Shout, 50 years since Lulu and The Luvvers entered the charts, and 50 years since Lulu emerged as a star!
This accomplishment in the British Music and Entertainment Industry deserves recognition - a special, memorable way to mark the occasion. Lulu is globally successful; loved for that trademark vocal, treasured for that endearing smile and admired for being able to remain current.
Never before has a Solo, British, Female artist been recognised by The Brits for their 'Outstanding Contribution Award' - It's about time that changed. Change is Lulu. That award is Lulu. She's made an Outstanding Contribution!
Proof she's still got it, never lost it?
In January of 2008, many homeschooler's accounts were deemed disabled on Facebook because they are not considered to be in a high school.
Their homeschool networks were taken away, and were told they could not come back until they were 18.
This petition is for anyone and everyone, homeschooler or not, to help get homeschoolers and their networks back on Facebook!

Not only myself, but thousands of other Facebook users are being sexually and verbally harassed each day.
- 4 men in the last month have sexually harassed me through Facebook
- 3 women in the last year have verbally harassed me and have threatened me through Facebook
- I ended up giving threats back to people and hurting people through Facebook in retaliation
- On the news, a young girl commited suicide because she was being harassed on Facebook
- Another young girl commited suicide because she was being harassed on Facebook AND MySpace
- All you have to do is google "Harassment on Facebook" and you will see for yourself!
First established as a group on Facebook on October 29th 2007, it became clear after only one week and over 1,500 members that this was a subject the UK’s rugby lovers felt very strongly about. After 6 weeks, there were over 14,500 members.
What we all want to see is a ‘regular’ terrestrial TV slot dedicated to show highlights from the weekend’s rugby union action across the UK. All too often Rugby Special concentrated on the Guinness Premiership and I like many others, would like to see Magners League coverage as well as other aspects of the game itself.
Football has more than it’s fair share of coverage on Match of the Day, the repeat and Match of the Day 2, not to mention Football Focus and other round up programmes.
Ok, so football has a greater following and it’s all about viewing figures at the end of the day, but how many people are you realistically going to get tuning in to watch Rugby Special at midnight on a Sunday night or some of the other crazy times it was on?
Considering all of our 4 home nations are in the top 10 IRB World Rankings, no real effort is made to try and capture this audience and we need to prove to the BBC via our campaign petition and through your support spreading the word, that the UK rugby lovers have a voice.
- holds rights to show highlights of the Guinness Premiership.
- holds exclusive rights to show the Anglo-Welsh EDF Energy Cup.
- holds joint rights to show the Celtic League, Wales, Ireland and Scotland's top league along with Setanta Sports.
- BBC Sport produces the Welsh-language S4C's coverage of the Celtic League and EDF Energy Cup under the Y Clwb Rygbi brand.
Seeing as they have the rights to the highlights, the demand is there and we pay our TV licences, I feel we have a public right to make our voice heard.
Did you know that 85% of the products in the average Australian grocery trolley are made by foreign owned companies.
This results in 100 million a day going outside Australia. By comparison,in Japan, 98% of goods in supermarkets are owned by Japanese organisations. We need to turn this around and copy the Japanese comparison.Lets go even better than the Japanese lets aim for 100%.
