Well, since Wikileaks would likely publish any and all classified information it could get its hands on

Which they're not even consistent about, since apparently they'd rather hold back certain files to try and blackmail the US government rather than follow through on "the public's right to know."

The majority of the population does NOT want to see this pass, yet it made it through the Senate with NO opposition?

I thought the government was for the people by the people. What a fucking joke.

No, it made it through the Judiciary Committee.

Then again, I don't have a lot of hope that the remainder of the Senate will do much better.

... at least once a month, I get an e-mail informing me that there's a commander's call, or some such event.

It never actually says this in the e-mail body, though. The actual date, time, and location, is in a single-slide Powerpoint file, attached to the e-mail.

Powerpoint isn't the problem, people's over-reliance on it is the problem.

Uh, wouldn't it be more responsible to maintain limited logs, but only for a reasonable period of time, and with the stipulation that they'll only be surrendered when ordered by a court? We already have plenty of ISPs out there that just don't care about the conduct of their users (I'm looking at you, HiNet), and half their assigned IP ranges are in a blacklist somewhere. But I guess being deliberately irresponsible just to annoy the MPAA/RIAA is okay by Slashdot.

Seriously, the last thing the Internet needs is another abuse haven ISP.

Good day to avoid cops. Crawl to work.
