This petition has gotten a lot less attention, but I think is actually more useful than the one to remove Aaron Swartz's prosecutor:

- - Interesting. I would also like to see an explicit provision that required punishment under the law to be proportionate to the harm caused. Though that's really tricky because there are cases (like Kevin Mitnick) in which supposed harm was greatly amplified by malicious accounting.Jan 16, 2013
- BTW, Zoe Lofgren represents San Jose. I would not be surprised to see the whole "Silicon Valley caucus" pushing for something to be done here. The question is whether the rest of congress will pay attention; they usually don't.Jan 16, 2013
- Just noticed they spiked the bar to get a response from 25,000 to 100,000. They probably did this because people were pushing stupid petitions through the system. The Internet at it's best.
Petitions to remove specific people from office are distinctly useless, so, yeah, I imagine this would have more sway, though this is more of a legislative issue than an executive one.Jan 17, 2013
