Digital Bill of Rights

OK Bob, what do you propose as an alternative to MAPS/RBL that
will force ISPs regardless of size (local provider with 100
dialups to MSN), and providers regardless of infrastructure, to
enforce a commonly agreed upon rule?

There is absolutely no reason for
ISPs to do *anything*. Except for
implementing a USER CONFIGURABLE
INTERFACE that allows personal
filtering of E-Mail *before* it
is downloaded. I called this the
ALLISAT INDEX once upon a time
but what is a name?

The concept is relatively simple.
First let me say I hate that
commercial shit e-mail just like
anyone else. However - rarely -
once in a hundred junk mails -
there is actually something of
interest. Surprise, surprise!
Regardless... if Eudora had a
nice Dialogue box that popped
up allowing me to tell my mail
server exactly what I wanted
deleted - be that a stupid
black list like Vixie's or
some other filter template -
I would be very happy. But I
also want the bloody choice
on any and every Public level
ISP to recieve *EVERYTHING*.
ALL the junk, all the trash, as
in everything.

ISP's have no other job but
sending streams of stuff to and
fro. It is my job, as an individual
to determine what is "signal" and
what is "noise". ISP's open very
dangerous doors when they venture
anywhere near content censorship.
So I say back off! It's none
of your damned business where
anything comes from or where it's
going. Period.

Yo BOB,

How do I configure my router for that?

foo# conf t
foo(config)#ip digital-bill
                ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Or is it this I'm looking for:

foo(config)#ip filter-KOOKMAIL
foo(config)#

I recommend the procmail "KOOK" autoresponder for circumstances such as
these.

Bob's posts have no relevance to this group and are against this charter.
He is YAK (Yet Another Kook) that needs a hobby. The Cabal will find him,
but until then, might someone from merit please tell him to go away if
he's not going to abide by the charter. You may ignore his cries of
censorhip.

Of course KOOKs oftentimes think rules don't apply to them, but that's
another story, and not fodder for NANOG.

Please someone, post something technical before I cry.

Thanks,

Charles
