Considering the FBI's long and rich history of fascism and acting against the US Bill of Rights (starting with Hoover, and going downhill from there), not to mention the NSA's rampant (and blatantly illegal) domestic spying....

I'll damn well act against their silly rules and regulations any well damn time I feel like it.

Every American should be encrypting the hell out of anything they own, and demanding that companies do likewise with their products and services. The sooner we render the Gestapo and Stasi impotent, the better.

Aol has always been pretty spammy, but they've gotten out of control lately, and as usual, ignoring the problem.

I lost patience with them years ago, and started firewalling any netblock from them that was causing problems.

Solved a lot of problems, and since no one in their right mind uses them anymore, I'm not too worried about blocking anything legit.

my guess, the one second rule is "no more then 1 shot fired per second"

Many inexperienced shooters try to fire too quickly (and not fully in control), and hit things they shouldnt, like target holders, other peoples targets, etc.

Personally I hate rules like that, as it interferes with many of my drills, but I'm also a competition handgun shooter, so I've got a little more experience with controlled double taps, Mozambique drills, etc, compared to the average joe.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
