Signing petitions not worth risk

It really irritates me when I see petitioners in front of stores. First, realize that, in general, these petitioners are losers who can't find a real job. These people represent issues that they themselves can't explain and profit $1 to $2 per signature. So if you are one of those people who just can't say "no," realize that you are giving this person every piece of information, including your signature. What is preventing these petitioners from using your information to steal your identity? Nothing! So is it really worth the risk of your identity to sign a petition? The answer should be plain and simple, no.
