An optimist! In the government's actions nonetheless. Amazing, I thought they were extinct.

The point is twofold:

  1. The bill is so vague that it could easily be interpreted in a manner that results in the above situation occuring.
  2. We're stepping onto a slippery slope which leads in this direction.

In addition, email is something almost everyone can easily relate to. Maybe it's not perfect, but the reality is we're headed to something even more frightening than tilly suggests.

Props to tilly for trying to raise awareness but I'm not sure individual people coming up with such email campaigns will accomplish much. Perhaps our efforts would be more effective if we focused them through major organizations such as the eff. They've been doing an excellent job speaking out against this bill. Mind you, anything is better than nothing.
