you are diligent in your watch and i appreciate that, lapis.
the internet is going to bite us all in the butt, or at least it has the potential to. people only react to what is in their face. so while we merrily go along speaking our minds and enjoying the last bastion of free speech and free enterprise, there is much planning, ground laying and spying going on as we speak. and yes, the changes will happen slowly, the public opinion tweaked over time. that is why i hate all suppression of expression, at least as much, if not more, than any possible content.
we only have those rights that we are willing to extend to others.
