Legal "Three weeks ago the 23-year-old UK-based administrator of a TV show and movie links site was arrested by police. The site, referred to only as TVShack, could be one of three domains of which two are already controlled by the US government after their seizure as part of Operation in Our Sites. Following his detention in the UK's largest prison, the admin is now fighting his extradition to the U.S. with the help of Gary McKinnon's lawyer." His site only linked; it did not host. The most damning point is that he was found not guilty under UK law. So, does this mean The Netherlands can request extradition of, say, Rick Santorum for his blatant anti-homosexual remarks, which are illegal under Dutch law? That would be fun.

"He started it" is a kindergartner's defense.

Calling people with whom you disagree names is just a cheap way to avoid having to address the issues they raise.

And if you're so sure of your moral superiority, why stoop to the exact same behavior for which you are criticizing them?

Sorry, not buying it.


I know this is going way off from the original topic of the article which Thom posted but lets get one thing straight - Rick Santorum is a guy who compares a same homosexual relationships and homosexual sexual acts between consenting adults as being morally equivalent to beastiality, incest and paedophilia. I'm sorry but such views have gone well beyond a matter of two people disagreeing, given that both sides can be understood as reasoned arguments with different conclusions, to point where Rick Santorum's arguments are so lacking in structure it is entering face palm territory. We're talking about self evident statements that incriminate oneself as a moron and do not require any sort of retort given that the original statement lacked any intellectual rigour in the first place.

What Dan Savage did was childish but lets keep one thing in mind, Dan Savage isn't a senator he is an entertainer. The fact that a state would vote in Rick Santorum tells me more about the state whom he was voted to represent more than it says anything about the American system over all.

I know what I've said will fall on deaf ears given that ricegf is a Christian fundamentalist and God forbid him speaking against a 'like minded believer' whom he finds affinity with Rick Santorum.
