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.

I think we both know the Netherlands is, ultimately, too level headed place to do that... but you can help (maybe you already do, NL being one of very few non-EN Wiki writings about it) in adoption of one neologism ;p

Ah. So you're into character assassination and publicly ridiculing others' names. How... nice.

One who fights with the sword...

What, surely you don't think that Rick Santorum shuns character assassinations and publicly ridiculing others? (with all his populist drivel about such irrelevant "issues" & seemingly pushing to turn back the clock on civil rights & ~sexual oppression...) That's what "gay bashing" amounts to, especially in the eyes of its perpetrators.
BTW what it does, how it harms humanity: it just happens to be Alan Turing Year, maybe it's time to familiarise yourself with his life story.
