Thread Name: UK Licensing Act - another petition.
Subject: RE: UK Licensing Act - another petition.
Yes, but I would guess that many people only have one PC in the house. And if you borrow a laptop that might stop its owner using it to sign the petition.

They should check a combination of name, email address and PC IP no. or something, and only disallow the vote if they are all the same as one already received. At the moment, it seems they only check the IP address (I think, anyway), because my wife's email address, and (perhaps obviously!) name, are different from mine. So it must be based on using the same computer only.
