My understanding is that these statements were sent to the mailing list alias but not forwarded to the list subscribers. As a result of this feature, I suspect that they were not counted.
As a result of not following the petition process, they
were not counted.

"Petitions take place on the PPML; those who wish to
start a petition and/or participate in petitions must
be subscribed to the list." It's already been noted
that subscribing is near instantaneous and open to all.
Since petitions are against specific AC actions, it
would best for petitioners to follow the discussion
on PPML so that they can make an informed decision
on such actions before petitioning. Email addresses
are relatively easy to create, and while we have never
had problems with aliases being used to get a petition
through, it's the little details like being subscribed
to PPML that help insure that we are actually counting
members of the community.
