Sorry, I'm not entering my full name and address into a website I'm not buying something from.

You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

That is, of course, your choice, but Change.org is a trusted petitioning website with millions of active members. It would be rather difficult to find a more widely used petitioning website.


Which just means a ton of people are going to have their personal information needlessly made public if the site ever gets compromised.

If that's the way you wish to see it, but that's an extremely cynical view, IMO. If you are concerned about that, then you certainly wouldn't be the first to simply use their RS name and incorrect address, if you chose that path.

Now, can we keep it to discussion of the principles of the petition, please?

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.

It may be cynical but it is also perfectly logical. They are not a payment processor so they do not have to follow the strict security restrictions of PCI and therefore are not liable at all if their database is breached, which in the modern age is not too uncommon to assume it won't happen to changes.org, in fact I would think changes.org is a massive target for groups who want to discover information about the people petitioning against them.


Edit:
QFC: 15-16-361-63671263 This thread and the previous in the series by the same poster is a petition that might actually have an effect.

What concerns me more is that your petition severely understates the increased amount of security risks Jagex has taken on since 2009/2010. If people have to adapt to something, OH LAWDY NO! But if people are putting their personal information at risk, they'll take a big bite into that shit-flavored pie and happily ask for another.

/u/oblivinite makes awesome Runescape comics. Go read them!

Now, the next time I die because of server issues, instead of being frustrated, I can be proud that I'm helping remove gold from the economy. What a wonderful idea!

Of all the petitions I've ever signed, including government ones, I've never needed more than an email address. Asking for a full address is ridiculous, there are plenty of other well know petition sites that don't ask for such details.

This. A petition against a company does nothing. Boycotting their product, or hurting their bottom line in some significant way, does.

My membership ends on the 10th and will not be renewed, but that does not mean that one can not do more than simply that.


Enjoy f2p then while I enjoy my game.
1 million+ bot memberships lost didn't make Jagex bat an eye. Nothing less than a violent standoff will change anything.
And if I remember correctly, Insight owns over 51% of the stock. They can close the game today if they wanted to. And they could just as easily get new, naiive players.

Sure, you "can" do more. I just hold that it will be ineffective. No impact=no reason to do it.
