Answers.com - Do internet or email petitions produce the intended results: "Then, petitions usually ask people to forward the message to the proper government official when the names reach a certain number. However, most people just keep adding their names and forwarding it on, never stopping to check which official it should be forwarded to. In the end, the same petition e-mail floats around for years and years, well past the time the bill was being considered by any public official, still being forwarded to everyone on your list. I am still getting petitions in my mail box that I had already received four years ago.
