My $.02 ... I disagree with Wade's censorship proposal. The issue seems
to be sort of like the 1st amendment rights deal. "Filtering", or
censorship, or whatever you choose to call it, limits the usefulness of
any discussion. I'd further like to point out that today's free-for-all is
an extremely rare event, and therefore does not necessitate policy changes
- it works well the way it is.

Kudos and further encouragement to Todd and others who wish to help us all
out with their discoveries.
