The much-signed (?) Manhattan Declaration

Just a week after the Manhattan Declaration was unveiled it has some large number of unverified signatures, Lillian Kwon of the Christian Post reports.

Without mentioning signature verification.

If the petition gatherer cannot somehow verify that there is one, unique, real human being standing behind each signature (and not the same human being behind several signatures), such petitions are meaningless.

The Manhattan Declaration‘s signature-collection process filters for robots.

But apparently does no other identity verification. Not even a verification email to the address you give them.

Just bumps the counter.

Which means people can sign several times under bogus names, and that a suitably unethical person can sign for you.
