In which I am a cranky old cow

Change.org started out as a brilliant idea, which has actually achieved some good results through its user-generated petitions. There are however two recent petitions that make me pretty annoyed, but wondering whether it's just me.

The first one is a petition to get McDonalds to offer a vegetarian choice. Why? If you are vegetarian why would you go to Maccas in the first place? Seriously, if you don't like the menu, go somewhere else.

The second one just leaves me shaking my head. Apparently the food colour used in M&Ms has been linked to ADHD and hyperactivity in kids, so the petition is asking the manufacturers of M&Ms to... change dyes? Leave them uncoloured? I'm not sure on that point. But I'm thinking there's a really simple solution there, which doesn't involve getting all activist-y on a social media platform.
