Petitie om duizenden websites te blokkeren in Europa !!, die de goede zeden van minderjarigen overtreden. (kindermisbruik-exploitatie-handel en uitbuiting):
Op Woensdag 29 April 2009, brachten gerecht en politie een artikel uit, die vermelde dat men actief werkt aan een zwarte lijst van internationale websites waarvan de inhoud de zeden schend, meerbepaald kinderporno, misbruik, exploitaie en de handel in kinderen. Wij hadden dit op Europees vlak willen doorgetrokken zien. Wat in eertse instatie een zeer goed initiatief blijkt, zal jaren aanslepen om op europees vlak effect te hebben. Die tijd hebben kinderen niet !!

May 7, 2006
Each and every year, many women, of all ages, are killing themselves. These women and young girls are not committing suicide by hanging themselves or overdosing on pills. These women are suffering from anorexia nervosa. They are starving themselves to death.
However, these women are not doing it on their own; they are being aided in their slow suicide. This act of assisted suicide is illegal in 49 out of 50 states. With the help of pro-anorexia or, as they are more commonly called, "pro-ana" websites, visitors to these sites, usually young, female adolescents, looking to lose weight or who are already in the midst of an eating disorder, can obtain weight loss tips and tricks on how to hide their eating disorder from family and friends. These websites promote behaviors, which lead to osteoporosis, irregular heart beat, cardiac disease, seizures, nerve damage, heart attack and death.
Oregon is currently the only U.S. state, in which assisted-suicide is legal. Under the Death with Dignity Act, physicians are permitted to administer a lethal dose of medication to those suffering from a terminal illness. To qualify for physician-assisted suicide, one must meet a specific set of criterion. They must be at least 18 years of age, an Oregon resident, capable of making, as well as communicating health care decisions for themselves, and have been diagnosed with a terminal illness that will result in death in six month of less.
A terminal illness is an incurable disease, which is active, progressive and expected to lead to death. Anorexia is not a terminal illness. An anorectic showing up at an Oregon clinic wishing to receive assistance in ending her life, would be turned down, almost immediately, regardless of how much physical and emotional pain she was in, on the grounds that she did not meet the criteria of having a terminal illness. Though escaping from and living without an eating disorder may seem impossible to one who is suffering from an eating disorder, it is not impossible.
Anorexia can and has, many times, been cured. Though it is not easy to make a complete recovery, with the right treatment techniques and professionals, it is possible, even for those with the poorest of prognoses.
If suicide assisted by a physician is only legal in one state, and if anorexia does not meet the legal criteria, than the people who make these pro-ana websites, and those who offer these tips and tricks on "how to kill yourself", featured on these sites, have absolutely no right, legally, morally, or ethically, to be doing so. They are assisting others in suicide, which is something they have no right to be doing, seeing as we barely give medical doctors the right do so. Furthermore, to receive physician-assisted suicide, you must be of legal age to give consent.
Many of the girls who are visiting these websites are under the age of 18. They could not receive physician-assisted suicide if they were suffering from a terminal illness, therefore, it cannot possibly be legal for any stranger on the internet, who also may be under 18, to be assisting these young girls in their suicide attempts.
Research has shown that those who frequently visit pro-eating disorder websites spend more time in the hospital than those who do not visit these sites. These websites have very serious impacts on people. A young girl, thinking she is fat and needs to lose a few pounds, may stumble upon one of these websites. What happens next may be unthinkable. But, most likely she will look around the website, reading the various tips and tricks to drop weight quickly, but hide it from those around her. She will learn that you can eat whatever you want, but not gain a pound because you can purge yourself of the calories, using exercise, laxatives or vomiting. She will see pictures, or "thinspiration" of thin, rich, smiling, actresses and models.
What she will not see is pictures of emaciated bodies, with extremely dry skin and fine, laguno hair covering their bones. She will not see their eroding tooth enamel, or their ulcers, the dehydration or electrolyte imbalance. She will not see their thinning hair or heart arrhythmias. She will not see their hurt, their sadness and depression, or their broken hearts. She will not see their death. She will see the thin, glamorous models and actresses and wish to look like them. So, she will start to diet and lose weight, thinking she is in control of her actions. She will be recognized and praised for her weight loss, especially by the network of "friends" she has made through pro-ana websites.
They will encourage her to "keep up the good work" and not to "give in to the enemy (food) now". She will feel good about herself and think "I just want to lose five more pounds; Five more and then I will have the perfect body." However, she loses five more and the praise and positive comments and encouragement continue. Five turns into ten, ten into twenty, twenty into forty, forty into the hospital. All of a sudden, the young girl who just wanted to lose a few pounds and was in control of her diet, is now being controlled by her behaviors. She can't stop.
This is not one scenario, this is the course the majority of eating disorders take. This is the very reason why these websites need to be shut down. The rate of eating disorders is rising. The importance we place on beauty and our attitudes towards what we consider attractive, combined with websites such as these are contributing to the increasing prevalence of eating disorders. We must change our beauty ideal and shut down websites such as these, which are promoting self-starvation. Anorexia nervosa is a serious, life-threatening physical and an extremely emotionally painful disease that no one should ever have to experience.
Members of the pro-ana community may argue it is a violation of their rights to be censored. However, freedom of speech does not give anyone the right to help kill another person.
Sandy, Utah, March 24, 2005 - Finally a foundation determined and dedicated to rid our homes and work places from any and all pornography websites by instituting a "do not call" list for all pornography-related websites.
With the pornography industry now reaching 12 billion dollars in the United States alonemuch more than the combined revenue of ABC, CBS and NBC put together (6.2 billion); www.PureFamily.org has said enough is enough.
"12% of all Internet websites are pornography related. 8% of all email is pornographic in nature, 20% of adult males admit to accessing pornography at work, and 17% of adult females struggle with a pornography addiction. Not only are these statistics outrageous " says Eamon Arnett, co- founder of Pure Family, "but the average age of first exposure to this filth is 11 years old, and 90% of 8-16 year olds confessed to viewing pornography onlinemost while doing their homework"!
Pure Family is saying, why wait any longer; why not fight this fight now? The foundation's description is nothing but straight and to the point, "Strength through Purity". "This is just a start to all the good we can accomplish as we work together in our communities we will continue to fight for our families in what ever issues face them" says John Niels Petty co-founder of Pure Family. "We choose to fight for all our familiesthey mean everything to us."
For more information on how you can help to protect and strengthen your family, please feel free to logon to www.purefamily.org.
This is a petition for all of the Rivals.net publishers to sign to show how eager we are for a new design of our websites on the Rivals network.
We have kept the same design of our sites for around four years and feel its time for a new design to be implemented.
Please give your support to this by stating your name and the site which you run.
This Petition is to try and save The Pro-Mia websites.
I think that certain hacking organizations should be legal. Take Legends of Chaos for example. They hack a lot, but they hack porn sites and get information from countries the U.S. is at war at. I think that as long as you're a member of one of these groups, you should be allowed to hack, as long as you're only going to do it to illegal websites. That's all.
This is a petition to get all the anti ana's and mia's off our cases about OUR websites!
The attacks on pro-mia and pro-ana websites and lifestyles have become out of control. This petition is not to bash fat/obese people, but to seek equality. Pro-ana and pro-mia lifestyles and websites are constantly being criticized and shut down. This is a violation to our First Amendment under the Constitution of the United States. Obesity is not a healthy lifestyle, yet it is widely accepted. Why aren't pro-mias and pro-anas allowed equal treatment? If you would like to help accomplish equality, please sign this petition. Thank you for your signatures.
There are Pro Anorexia/Pro Bulimia websites all over the Internet, easily accessable to our children who are quite impressionable and lacking win the self-esteem department.
If these websites cannot be banned then they must have the same thing as porn websites. If you choose to visit these sites you must provide ID to prove you are age 18 and over, otherwise access is denied.
I think that's only fair to all involved, even though I think that websites that promote sickness are wrong. I know that we can only do so much.
These Web sites promote self harming and deadly behaviour and make it seem as if having anorexia is a gift. You don't see any one creating web sites like " Yay , Let's get cancer!". These Websites have pictures of anorexic girls with huge writing saying discusting things like " Anorexic Queen" and "Never too thin". These Websites basically promote people killing themselves. Not only to these sites have gross pictures they have dieting tips and ways to hide food from your parents. We say, STOP THIS !!!
A new domain has copied numerous websites and must be stopped.
We, the following, are angry and disgusted with the behavior of a new domain, Mocha-Twist.net. She has violated the terms of service for numerous websites and has outright stolen material as her own. We ask Endore to shut down her domain.
Please sign this petition because I want to close down poetry.com, famouspoets.com, and also related websites. There have been suggestions that their intentions are not what they seem to be. I refuse to let them continue to get away with ripping people off, and I will do what it takes to get those poetry contests shut down!
"Hidden among the many sponsors of legitimate literary contests advertised on the internet lurk those who care nothing about literature, its audience, or authors. These unscrupulous organizations and individuals exist solely to get into your wallet through their so-called writing or poetry contests. Often you'll find these free poetry contests lavishly advertised in your local newspaper."

I need your help in closing those websites down to stop them from scamming more people!
