Memo To Bob Goodlatte:

Three things you had better wrap your brain around fast:

1) Read and comprehend the law of unintended consequences.

2) Or, more to the point: Sie müssen mit leeren sich die bade-wanne, aber nicht das Kind mit ihr zusammen.*

3) Don't screw with the free exchange of ideas on the internet.

4) Ignore (1), (2), and (3) and see how pissed off your loyal supporters can get.

You're a co-sponsor of the Stop Online Piracy Act?  If so, understand this: You're also co-sponsoring a bill that will stifle free speech - especially on this weblog - and I won't take kindly to that.

Consider it a warning.  You don't want to mess with a guy who operates at 3000 kbps, has a short temper, and is blessed with a gift for words.

* Loosely translated: "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water."
