Looks like the AIDS denialists have made a run at change.org--which, I hasten to add, is not affiliated with change.gov, the Obama transition team website. Questioning whether HIV is the cause of AIDS is now the second most popular item in the global health category of change.org.
It's not enough that AIDS denialists have killed at least 330,000 people in South Africa alone. It makes my blood boil to think their juvenile antics, like flooding the simplistic popularity contests at change.org, will keep even a single person with HIV from getting the treatment that she or he needs.
Some valiant commenters have taken up the fight and taken on the denialists at change.org. The guy who originally posted the idea is a total lurker. As of this morning his profile shows he supports no non-profits, has taken no actions, raised no money or recruited anyone to any cause.
Memo to change.org folks: you have been punked.
