Don’t waste your time with petitions
For some reason some other news websites are reporting on certain online petitions urging Warner to continue support for HD DVD. Don’t waste your time. There is no way to ensure that every signature is unique so it means nothing. And if you read the signatures you have a few from “Michael Bay,” “Michael Jackson,” and a myriad of other obvious joke names. Hell, I could start an online petition urging Warner to drop HD DVD immediately and have tens of thousands of names on it in minutes. If I printed out the list it might be as think as my local phone book.
The fact that these news sources even report on something so obviously manipulatable really brings their integrity into question. Why not just report on anonymous online polls conducted on random blogs? Some of them show HD DVD more popular than Blu-ray even – but that proves nothing.
