...I know it took hundreds of years before people really accepted the Earth is flat, and perhaps it will take even longer before people truly embrace unrestricted information exchange; But it is an inevitability...

I still don't believe the Earth is flat. But I agree with the rest of your statement.

I have the opposite problem with my post office. The address can be spelled perfectly but it might end up at my neighbor's house. I know this because it happens so frequently we all have to play nice or we'd all be missing bills, letters from friends, etc. When it gets really bad one or more of us will jump through the hoops to complain to the post office and it will get better for a while, and then slide right back to where it is now.

As long as my plan gets funded, too, I'd be okay with it. It goes something like this, "As soon as you plan to build a device that would inhibit the basic Civil liberties of anyone anywhere (Right to Trial, Freedom to Gather, etc) you will be vaporized by a lightning bolt and entombed in in the Earth for all eternity."

The less time planning, the more time programming.

Working...
