I'm still laughing at Steve Walshes "Break Seal In Case of Court
Summons" I'm pretty sure everyone on this list by now has a folder
marked as such.
As for some sort of protest I've had some experience of this in the past
doing stuff with ANUSA so here is my 2 cents.
1st point, DO NOT GET THE SOCIALISTS INVOLVED. EVER. EVER. EVER. EVER.
EVER. EVER they hi jack everything and just piss everyone off.
2nd point, do something creative. There was an idea floating around of
having a sit in at the AG's office and just play video games all day to
protest Fallout getting censored, The main problem wasn't so much
getting gamers out there it was getting power and enough large tv
screens running safely out there to make a day of it. If you did
something interesting that wasn't walking around blocking traffic with
signs that gets the news crews out then it should get plenty of
attention and get your point across to the public. "I'm an adult, I
swear I cus and I watch Porn" T-shirts may or may not be a good idea.
3rd point DO NOT GET THE SOCIALISTS INVOLVED
4th point, If you talk to the media make sure you use the phrase "Conroy
is a Chinese Socialist" every 2nd sentence. If you can compare their
plan to Chinese communism as much as possible that should do wonders in
5th point DO NOT GET THE SOCIALISTS INVOLVED and under extreme
circumstances avoid Bob Brown too
6th Point If someone can find out which ISP Conroy uses and can get a
copy of his site log, I'll bet it contains something that will shut him
7th point Bob's not that bad actually
8th point Always give a viable alternative, ie. tell the government to
bugger off and fund free software for parents rather than trying to dump
it on all of us.
Ok I'm Done
