There is one lesson to learn from this. We have reached a stage where
the rights of an individual or entity to existence in cyberspace need to
be protected under the law. You may take the lead in applying democratic
principles that follow the real world laws, or the legislature will do
it ad hoc.

So, if Uncle Sam comes along and decides that open relays are illegal, would
you _finally_ reconfigure your mail server?

As I'm sure you're aware, there are two sides to government intervention in
anything, and until the government intervenes, you don't know if it will be
favourable or not to your attitude. If it isn't, then should we expect
www.dotgovon.com criticizing the government for siding with the "evil Vixie
conspiracy"?
