Why isnt this just happening on reddit where you can get a larger audiance and educate more people about your things


Overlord Emeritus
We have considerable respect for our friends at Reddit, but for it to be "just happening on reddit" restricts the number of people who will see it. At Tom's, we felt it was important enough to approach the EFF for an AMA with our community, but by no means have we claimed exclusive dibs. They way we look at it, the more that know about the issues the better off we'll all be in the long run. :)

i already know what i want to ask #1 why the dial up limit to 56k isn't being removed when it was set in place back in the late 90's for "security"

any why there isn't a mass lawsuit upon every branch of the united states government for breach of our right to privacy which is Amendment III

"No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."

in conjunction with

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

an op-ed i had read pretty much sums up why:

EFF has done Reddit AMAs before. At least the EFF activism team has, including one of tomorrow's AMA speakers, Parker Higgins.
