About that petition
I just noticed that the petition was posted (PDF) at the ASUC website. Some amusing notes:
1) The petition does not list the names of the signers. Seriously. The only person they told was the Attorney General.
2) The petition did not "fulfill the standards of authentification for signatures specified in Title IV of the ASUC By-Laws" as required by the Judicial Council opinion allowing online signatures. Specifically, the name of the individual was pre-written after the signer's CalNet ID was authenticated, which is specifically prohibited by the section referenced in the Judicial Council opinion.
3) The petition required signers to give their e-mail address.
The latter two points I confirmed while the petition was still online, but the first point absolutely blows me away. "We, the undersigned, don't want you to know who we are, but we really did sign!"
I think I'll make an effort to have the names on the petition posted, too.
