in reply to The SSSCA considered harmful

Living in a country neighbouring USA on the North, I also find it concerning and rather disturbing that such a harming and completely incompetent law could be even brought to a public hearing. tilly's email is excellent. I especially find the email forwarding as an act of 'evil' being a great example.

I'm afraid that in this day and age of digital 'revolution', great evil could be brought upon existing and future technologies by computer illiterate individuals (who still live with the past) who have been granted exceptional powers to control what is, in effect, beyond their control, or even mental reach, if you'd allow me to put it this way.

Unfortunately, being a Canadian, I guess I'm not a proper candidate for filing a petition with US 'intellectual' authorities.
