Some would argue this isn't an "important" cause. And it's true there are causes higher on the scale. However, there is a sense of importance about this as well!
I honestly did not see the big deal behind a little blue check mark. We know who is behind @CrankGameplays and we don't need a little mark to tell us that. But, given that he has applied nine times, it is obviously something Ethan really wants. And, if it's important to Ethan, it's important to the thousands of people in the community supporting him.
Browsing through tweets, forum posts, and more, one can see tons of evidence that Ethan has affected the lives of many. I cannot count how many individuals I've seen cite him as an "inspiration" or a "life saver." That's big. That's important.
Ethan deserves that blue badge. It cannot be a question of public interest as this petition will show there is plenty of interest.
