Re: [pointer] Senators Embrace Mandatory Data Keys
More shocking insights into how even people who should know better refer to members of the Senate of the United States of America as "your elected officials" on a North American newsfroup that used to be about current network issues... Of course Canada is the 51st state, Mexico is South America, and none of the Carribean, Bermuda, Greenland or St Pierre et Miquelon are entitled to be part of North America (and don't run networks anyway). Oh and besides, even if the country you are in doesn't have these problems, America's laws will override those in your tiny unimportant backwaters (like Germany or Japan) anyway, because only America upholds personal freedoms around the world. Oops, so I guess they ARE your officials (in that they can make you submit to their rules), and they are elected (by a surprisingly small number of U.S. citizens). My mistake. Sean. P.S.: If anyone other than Digex runs publically accessible looking glass software, would you mind dropping me a note? Several people in the 52nd state are thinking about doing the same and seek experience on access policies and overall usage figures. Sorry if this seems vaguely operational. I didn't mean it. Honest.
