My response: What are the ADVERTISERS doing wrong? It is the TABLOIDS & PAPZ who do this in order to get attention FOR them. I’m sure the majority of them aren’t even paying attention. And if the Twilight Fanbase were to start coming down on THEM – THEY would just come back on US and make fun of us (as the WORLD does). Twilight Fans would be the ones who would get HURT the most – again.
THIS is WHY the petition is for ALL celebrities - ALL of them (and their fans) need these changes.
The reason why they want that is because a BOYCOTT WILL NEVER WORK!! There are too many people, and too many of them WILL ‘sneak a peak’.
But, a UNIFIED SCREAM in the form of a petition HAS been the start of MANY changes in this wonky world (because no one likes to deal with it. It's just, 'let's SHUT them UP' - ha! But ONLY if it is LOUD and angry enough. Are we there yet, fans? ;)
This comment is not on the petition, it's in the comments below that post - AND it is the most recent one to come through here about this subject, so I thought I'd share:

freedom of speech/press. sure you can ask for reform... but its not the media thats the problem, its the public buying into trash thats the problem. the media is a buisness. they sell what is statically proven to sell. if the public begins to boycott offensive trash headlines/articles statistics will change and then thr media will reform. why? because thats where thr next dollar will be. Very little is governed by moral responsibility. its all cash kids (Btw, *I* have already SAID ALL THIS in here, DUH!! Also, prostitution and child trafficking are 'businesses about cash' and we don't allow them to be legal, do we?)
These early comments on the petitions are starting to get buried, and I thought they might be helpful. Not everyone leaves a comment, so I will try to keep them updated in here. But, these are from the beginning until January 2014. (Btw, there is only one petition now - but you can sign it via Twitter or Email, your choice.)
Harassing comments on blogs seem like libel to me and I don't understand why they are not challenged under the law.
