It is a staggeringly complex problem for a more general case, and you can come up with a handful of specially designed programs that will always break it, but for the vast majority of cases it is solvable.
That's why it seems weird to me that you would immediately ditch the entire concept just because there's one crazy hack program out there that could break it, and only if you've specifically crafted your testing program so that it will fail in that case.
Failure to pass this bill means we'll get another chance.
You are quite the comedian. You could have brought the House down with that one. This bill is dead for at least 2 years now, why would a Republican majority Congress bring it up? The only way this bill is going to come back is as an extension of the PATRIOT act that allows for greater surveillance of anybody who makes less than $1 billion per year.
This is the same bullshit they tried to use to kill the ACA, and nobody bought it back then either.
But a vibrant mod community can utterly transform a game. There have been two orders of magnitude more code written to mod Minecraft than is in the base game. Kerbal Space Program would just be a toy without many of the mods (which were eventually incorperated into the game). Have you seen what people can do in Skyrim these days? Elite is not going to have any of that because they can't afford to threaten their micropayment income.
