I don't thinkit is stupid - i have already voted - but it is a bit of a cumbersome way to run a petition. You have to join the group before you can 'add a comment'. If you aren't a member of Flickr you would need to join first, then confirm your email address - then workout how to use it.

Can you not set up a simple 'poll' on a forum?
Maybe even this one?
I'm sure a simpler method would get a lot more votes.
