Due you have to become a member? The reason im asking is after signing and saving i get this error:

CiviCRM Profile Create
Sorry. A non-recoverable error has occurred.
The requested Profile (gid=37) is disabled OR it is not configured to be used for 'Profile' listings in its Settings OR there is no Profile with that ID OR you do not have permission to access this profile. Please contact the site administrator if you need assistance.

Return to home page.

I tried to sign the petition multiple times, got the same message syncdram mentioned above.  I emailed the FSF about this.

It will, when as many people as possible sign the petition, since thousands of people who may appear small alone can do something about the evil M$ plans together.

Signed, worked straight! :)
