Linus Torvalds Starts Petition on Change.org Addressed to Change.org Against Impersonating
The Change.Org website just got a taste of its own medicine after Linus Torvalds started a petition addressed to said website with a simple request.
Change.Org is a very popular platform and lots of people use it to start petitions. Most of them don't end up anywhere and there have been very few instances when something posted on Change.org actually made a difference. As it turns out, their scrutiny regarding the people who actually post stuff is lacking, to say it gently.
It turns out that the website doesn't actually check who is posting petitions, which means that it's very possible that some of the materials and initiatives posted online are not from those actual users.
