This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition Stop Fake Petitions being debated in Parliament. Stop mass signings by "Bots".

Clearly recent petition data is being faked by net bots, not only is this causing the 100,000 needed for it be debated in Parliament, it is also being used to falsely propagate issues in the media that are not true.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action. All petitions are already checked for fraudulent activity, using both automated and manual checks. The checks prevent fraudulent signatures being added to petitions by individuals trying to repeatedly sign, or automated attacks (bots).

If you'd like a specific additional check, you could start a new petition explaining clearly what you would like the Government or Parliament to do.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
