  •  But that is PRECISELY (none)
    what Democracy 21 is in fact arguing when it seeks to put blogs under regulation. It fundamentally is working from the flawed thinking that bloging is corrupt if there is unregulated bloging. They are arguing that we are, by our nature, a corrupting activity (not that there is any substance to it) that therefore has to be regulated.

    Why should Democracy 21 be able to be privately funded to influence Congress, yet somehow we, the blogsphere have to be forced into a regulated tar-pit that will stymie the fundamental principle of free public discourse?

    While we may agree that folks like Democracy 21 generally do and have fought the good fight, in this they are fundamentally wrong, not to mention rather hypocritical.

    cheers,
