Davis Excel deplores forgeries

By
From page A6 | April 02, 2013 |

Davis Excel is saddened by the news of another forged signature on the petition. Our intent with the petition was to simply provide a way for the community to show support for the GATE classroom program. We deplore the forging of signatures.

When we learned of forged statements, we immediately removed those statements from the petition. Further, in an effort to find the person/people who committed the forgery, we requested IP addresses related to the forged statements from Change.org, but Change.org refused to deliver them to us. We even challenged Change.org on its interpretation of its privacy policy, but they still refused to provide any information.

While parents are passionate about the welfare of their children, this behavior was terribly misguided. If the person believed he or she was supporting GATE, the use of an unethical tactic was inexcusable and greatly undermined the efforts of literally hundreds of people to support a program that has been part of our community since 1980. We very much appreciate the efforts of those defrauded to obtain information leading to those responsible.

The petition was distributed before we learned of the repeated fraud and misuse of the petition. We would never knowingly distribute fraudulent statements and apologize for inadvertently doing so. Additionally, we requested on March 5 that the entire petition be deleted from the Change.org website and were informed that same day that Change.org was in the process of deleting it, but Change.org delayed in doing so.

Change.org has finally removed the petition. We are very sorry that an online forum we created was used in a way that harmed families in our community.

Anupam Chander and Robert Erwin

Davis
