Yes, and I've probably helped spread this incorrect title...

I don't quite understand. I'll leave it up to Margaret if she wants to
publish statistics about signatories.

I have received some signatures for the current statement from an IT
company. Since the ACM is a professional organisation, rather than an
exclusively academic one, I don't see any problem with using their
statement for this purpose.
It would also be nice to have a statement more suitable for the general
public, but it must be carefully worded so that the government can't
dismiss it as irrelevant.
