I just signed a petition on change.org and received the following message:
I thought I’d note this in a blogpost because the distinction made here between a signer and a campaigner reminds me of questions I had during my PhD research, which was a study of a network of activists. What is the distinction between a signer and a campaigner? What is the distinction between an activist and a non-activist? And what do you call a non-activist – a passivist? What are the consequences of making these distinctions?
