Submission + - Snopes Calls Online Petitions A Waste Of Time

cybermage writes: "Snopes.com, usually a resource for ferreting out urban legends, has decided to engage in a bit of editorializing about the ineffectiveness of online petitions. It seems many petitions sites have sprung up that seem to be mostly geared toward attracting traffic to ads more than having any tangible effect; but, at the same time, efforts like DraftGore.com and petitions from moveon.org seem to be having some effect. Is Snopes.com right? Are online petitions a counter-productive waste of time? What have you experienced?"
