Voters face cyber harassment by new group

unixan (800014) writes "The Seattle Times reports that Washington State votes are being threatened with "uncomfortable conversations" for signing a petition that puts new same-sex laws to a vote. WhoSigned.Org, a newly created organization intended for this campaign, is aiming to organize mass-intimidation of voters into withdrawing their signatures.

The campaign may be backfiring, however. Many comments on the story's page indicate that previously-unaware readers intend to sign the petition in protest of the group's tactics."
