Internet and on-line petitions seem like a quick and easy way to make a statement. Unfortunately at best they're ineffectual, and at worst they do real harm.
In the popular television series House, Dr. Gregory House is often quoted as saying “everyone lies.”
On the internet, a similar statement can be made: everyone has an agenda.
Every website, news organization, and every person sending an email, publishing a newsletter, or just posting a comment has an agenda of some sort. They have something that they want you to do, think, or become.
All too often the agenda being promoted is …..FRAUD!
Many of you are sharing widely those petitions:
Rumors have been floating around that petitions all ran by the same individual located in Romania. The petitions are registered on a Romanian businessman, he is definitely NOT an animal lover!
I'm convinced, that this Romanian businessman is earning big money with animal suffering. For every click on these sites/petitions the website operator gets money from advertising partners.
Please spread this information and don’t let yourself get influenced by the cruel animal images posted on these pages.
Most people realize that “If it’s on the internet, it must be true.” is a sarcastic falsism to express just how inaccurate information on the internet can be. Just because it’s published on a website somewhere (or shows up in your inbox, on Facebook, or wherever), that doesn’t make it true.
Please stop spreading the manure!

My agenda is simple: I want you to be more skeptical before you believe what you see on the internet, and I want you to stop spreading misinformation. I’d love for this article to go viral, thank you for sharing.
