Removing Anonymous_Digit and his bots FOREVER.

We, the undersigned , members of Yahoo Help Chat:1, :2 and :3 ,and those seeking help, hereby request the removal of the individual known as Anonymous_Digit(with various dates behind it)and his bot programs from Yahoo. He has on more then one occasion broken the Terms Of Service of Yahoo and yet Yahoo Inc, in all its wisdom has allowed him to do so, and continues to do so.

If this petition is not effective enough to draw Yahoo Inc's attention, we will have no choice but to resort to legal action.

1653. Leave St Helens House for training Adults and put your registry office in the Old Police Building

It is beyond belief that the St Helens House buidings are under threat of change of use. The concept of helping people who are less able to work or disabled in any way was founded in Derby at this address and has a good reputation of success helping those who help themselves advance or ready themselves for re-introduction into the workforce in Derby.

This will be a disasterous loss if the changes proposed by my Council take place in April 2004 and it is also preposterous that those working or training there had no idea, until it was let slip during a radio Derby broadcast. This building is also steeped in historical value and I challenge them that it is illegal to change the use of a listed building after it has received a preservation order. I beg the people of Derby to sign my petition to save this wonderfull historical building in its present form and use.

1655. Changes to the Offside Wide Rule

In Ottawa Valley Cricket season 2003 we the players have been subjected to an interpretation of the One Day Iternational (ODI) ruling regarding Wide Deliveries. Currently the ODI ruling states:

25. LAW 25 - WIDE BALL

25.1 Law 25.1 - Judging a Wide

Law 25 shall apply with the following addition to Law 25.1:

Umpires are instructed to apply very strict and consistent interpretation in regard to this Law in order to prevent negative bowling wide of the wicket.

Any offside or legside delivery which in the opinion of the umpire does not give the batsman a reasonable opportunity to score shall be called a wide.

A penalty of one run for a wide shall be scored. This penalty shall stand in addition to any other runs which are scored or awarded. All runs, which are run or result from a wide ball, which is not a no ball, shall be scored wide balls.

OVCC in the attempt to implement the ODI rule concerning Wide Deliveries and their consistent interpretation have instructed the umpires to utilize the offside line which currently exists 24 inches from the middle stump.
It is this interpreation which contradicts the intent of the MCC Law 25 regarding Wide Balls. MCC Law 25 states:

Law 25 (Wide ball)
1. Judging a Wide
(a) If the bowler bowls a ball, not being a No ball, the umpire shall adjudge it a Wide if, according to the definition in (b) below, in his opinion the ball passes wide of the striker where he is standing and would also have passed wide of him standing in a normal guard position.

(b) The ball will be considered as passing wide of the striker unless it is sufficiently within his reach for him to be able to hit it with his bat by means of a normal cricket stroke.

The contradiction occurs because a batsmen at normal stance, ie. Middle Stump can reasonably reach a ball with his bat 24 inches out of middle stump. Considering bats are more than 24 inches long and without considering the arm length of the batsmen, a ball is easily reachable at normal stance.

It is thus that we petition OVCC in their attempt to keep a consistent interpretation of MCC Law 25 (Wide Ball) and ODI ruline 25.1 move the Offside line to 30 inches from middle stump. This will be 6 inches further to the offside from it's current postion.

1656. Petition to get Date listed included on Petitions at Gopetition.com

Petitions here do not include the date they were listed. It's hard to tell if a petition is still worth signing. Example. I saw a petition asking for X-Men: Evolution to return to WB. WB is currently airing a new seasion on Saterday Mornings. Either this person did not know this, or posted it when the pervious season quit airing reruns to show some new stuff for ratings untill the new fall season came around.

Without a date the petition was created you cant always tell these things.

1660. Save Rosia Montana

Rosia Montana, a community in Romania, needs the support of Canadians. Gabriel Resources of Toronto plans to develop Europe's largest open-cast mine in the Rosia Montana area of Romania. This gold mining project is illegal and immoral and has met with strong resistance because it will force people to leave their homes without their consent, irreversibly destroy a beautiful 1600 hectare area, and threaten the environment with a vast cyanide lake. Yet, Canadian money is keeping the project alive.

The petition below expresses solidarity with the Save Rosia Montana Campaign. The signatures will be presented to the people of Rosia Montana on Oct. 11, 2003 during a ceremony in the village when supporters complete a solidarity march of 130 km. The petition will also be forwarded to the Canadian government, to say that Canadians do not want to be associated with this type of development abroad and to demand that the government withdraw support of this project.

1661. Get rid of John Howard

For a long time now, we have had John Howard as Australia's Prime Minister. During this time, we have been involved in a war the country did not agree with, we have had the GST (good and services tax) come in, and the list of levys and extra taxes are rising with each day we have John Howard in power.

Mr Howard does not listen to the people, and anyone who wastes taxpayers money and does not make decisions according to what the people want for their country should not be running it.

Please sign this petition, so we can have a Prime Minister who will look after the common good of the country, and so we can have a better Australia for the future.

1666. Next Hurricane Name

This is a petition to name the next hurricane HURRICANE ICKMAR. In my opinion, Ickmar is a very agressive, destructive name. Completely suitable for a hurricane. It's hurricaney! If you think that Ickmar is a bad name for a hurricane, then you are stupid, ugly, brain-damaged, and you probably use drugs. Vote Ickmar! I assume that in order for this petition to have any sort of effect on anything at all, we will need somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 million signatures. With that in mind, get all of your to sign. That should cover it. Ickmar!

And to my homie-g-brethren on the West Coast: even though you are completely left out in the fact that you do not get hurricanes, this petition is not East-Coast-biased. I leave no one out! And to my central-United-States fellows. You don't even HAVE oceans, but I did not forget you! And to everyone else in every other place. You must still sign this! Unlike the U.S. presidential elections, your vote actually counts!

1669. Child Discipline

Greetings! Atlanta, GA The House of Prayer Rev. Arthur Allen, Jr.
Our pastor has been arrested along with members of our church for upholding the word of God. Proverbs 13:24, 24:13-14 specifically command Christians to discipline our children in ways that they will learn the differences between right and wrong. Because of the proposed government (worldly) ways of disciplining our children, we feel that our society has deteriorated. This is because our government has decided that we no longer need God in government!

1680. Stop Writing Contest Scams!

Poetry.com, Illiad Press, the International Library of Poetry. . . most people have heard these names, and in a negative context. What most people don't know is that these organizations are run by the same people, and they all are out to get money off of you!

I would like to close down Poetry.com and the other writing-related contest scams out there on the internet. Thousands of serious writers share their work with these organizations each year, are told their work is the best thing since Robert Frost, and asked to purchase books, plaques, CD's and do-dad's of their printed poems! For more info on this, I urge you to see the webpage below, then sign this petition so everyone knows how many people want these scams to end!
