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.

So you're volunteering to lead the pogrom?

And seriously, "Christian Fundamentalist" is the best slur you can think of? I realize it invokes "Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorist", i.e., someone who can be incarcerated for life without trial (or so I hear). Bur surely you can think of some disgusting bodily fluid to label "ricegf" and recruit for an on-line campaign to promote, similar to the post that started this thread?

In any event, try to understand that I would have precisely the same reaction to a recruiting campaign to desecrate the name of Milk or Kameny. I don't give a flip who sleeps with whom or who marries whom, but I care very much that filthy campaigns of slurs and innuendo (for good examples, look at the posts that follow my mention of the name "Dr. Martin Luther King" elsewhere in this thread) be jettisoned from the arena of online discussion.

It's the best hope I can find toward the end of the extreme polarization infesting American, and perhaps world, politics these days.
