GNU, GPL, Open Source "The FSF today launched a campaign with a twofold mission of exposing the harms inflicted on computer users by the new Microsoft Windows Vista and promoting free software alternatives that respect users' security and privacy rights. "Vista is an upsell masquerading as an upgrade. It is an overall regression when you look at the most important aspect of owning and using a computer: your control over what it does. Obviously MS Windows is already proprietary and very restrictive, and well worth rejecting. But the new 'features' in Vista are a Trojan Horse to smuggle in even more restrictions. We'll be focusing attention on detailing how they work, how to resist them, and why people should care", said FSF program administrator John Sullivan."

How about also making sure multiple users aren't coming from the same IP. This would help stop viral marketers or other PR scams.

Good Idea, except I work in a place where our broadcasted IP address is the same for everyone in the building. We have been banned from a lot of forums because they assume it is multiple accounts from the same person.

hppt://netropolis.lineone.net was a good game, but no-one in my work can play it now ;)
