    What a great idea!!

    Only 147 signatures??? Guys, you need to spread the word on other forums PLEASE!!!

    At the end of the petition, just before the addresses it says:

    "Vapers Coalition* strongly recommends that concerned citizens also Download and Print(PDF) a copy of this Petition (or write their own letter), sign it and mail it to the organizations below. "

    Click the "Download and Print" link.

    Did you get the confirmation email and click the link in it?

    That's really weird. Did you check your spam folder? Was the first account AOL?

    Kristin, have you thought about sending a copy of this out to all the major news outlets as well? It is so well thought out and written, just might get somebody's attention.

    Yes, but it'll be more "newsworthy" once there are a significant number of petitioners.

    The "news" won't care about an ecig "fringe" group of less than 200 people. :(

    Where's the sticky?

    Where's the notice at the top of the forum?

    WHERE'S THE DAMN COFFEE!?

    Those are my questions, without those three things, our goals will be a lot harder to accomplish...


    ...Decaf coffee should also be available for members who don't like being twitchy

    Come on People---Please pony up and get some signatures going here. Many people have been busting their rears here in this endeavor to abrogate a possible ban on e-cigs for quite a long time now day after day and we do not ask too much.

    Less then 200 people signing when we usually have over 500 people on this Forum at any given time is just not making the grade.


    Your help would be greatfully appreciated.

    Jiff, you crack me up!

    Actually, we are stickied at the top of this forum - it would be nice to get the notice popup when people log in, though! :D

    Wasn't the spam filter and the email addresses I used are both provided through the same web hosting service.

    Got me, I suppose it will go down as yet another unsolved mystery. Seems my life revolves around those! lol

    Oh, I think it’s more than okay — it’s eagerly needed. :)

    Monday morning I will be sending the 10 letters via international mail, to deliberately emphasize that these are positions that can and will affect countless lives around the world.

    Please check your spam folder.

    If you are on AOL, try using a free gmail or ymail account instead.

    Thanks! :)

    It isn't clear to me when the group of organizations this petition is aimed at, AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS, AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY CANCER ACTION NETWORK, AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, AMERICAN LEGACY FOUNDATION, AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION, AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, CAMPAIGN FOR TOBACCO-FREE KIDS, AND PUBLIC CITIZEN, intend to file their amicus curiae brief supporting the FDA.

    I think, from their statement that the appellant (FDA) will be sharing their brief with this group a week before filing date, that they probably intend to file by May 24th, the schedule for the appelant's brief. Filing later than that might appear to be interfering with the schedule.

    This petition's closing date is currently set at 2010/9/1.

    But it could have greater impact if it were received by the members of this group before they file their brief. At any time before they file it would be easier for one or more of these parties to pull out of their alliance than after they've filed.

    If there's any way we can get the number of signatures high enough (a thousand? two thousand?) to justify sending it to these organizations well before May 24th that would be a wonderful thing. Perhaps that is shooting for too much but come on everyone, let's try for it!

    In any case, sending letters NOW would be a very good thing. These will be received early enough that they may cause one or more of these organizations to think again.

    I have a suggestion. Might it help spread the word allover this forum if anyone who reads this thread adds a link to this thread in their signature? ;)

    That way everywhere you post and everywhere you have posted, someone will see it.

    EDIT:: Also, you don't have to change your whole signature, just add a line in re-directing people so they can see this.
