LinuxPlanet editor Michael Hall addresses the online petition epidemic: "Petitions for hardware support are nothing bad. I'm in favor of them when they're organized, politely worded, and not likely
to convince the people being asked to give something (support for hardware to a relatively small portion of the computing
consumer base) that they're dealing with demanding ingrates who can't check their own petition's spelling before tacking it
to the doors of the business in question and plopping down on the beanbag chair in mommy and daddy's rec-room with
their hands out."
