Blog Stuff: Don't whine to me, Argentina...

...the truth is I don't give a crap.

Anyhow, it's apparently now a big no-no to "annoy" people anonymously via a blog, First Amendment protections notwithstanding. (And we all know that the Bill of Rights hasn't been used by Congress for anything but dingleberry removal for years...)

I'm doing this blog thing for the same reason that the deranged guy on the street corner you pass every morning screams epithets at passing cars, and about as anonymously as him, too. If I'm annoying somebody out there, well, at least you know who's doing it.

Oh, and you probably deserve it, too.

It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out.

Like the ancient Chinese curse, I guess.

Stop making sense. Making sense and stating the obvious, and sometimes not so obvious, drives some people crazy. Me, I'd rather be exposed (dragged, kicking and screaming) to the truth than live in a fantasy world. You can slam the door on the truth but, sooner or later, it comes crashing through the window.

I don't think Declan McCullagh is interpreting the law correctly: http://www.nyu.edu/classes/siva/archives/002638.html

Oh, its obvious intent is to cover the internet equivalent of heavy-breathing phone calls.

Still, I find its very vagueness annoying. ;)
