If you're concerned about the house and senate bills censoring the Net, you
can make your voice heard. Votelink ( has a special
edition devoted to this topic, from a dozen related questions on which you
can vote to soliciting your definitions of terms like "smut," "filth," and
"harmful to minors." You can vote for free, contribute to the online
forums, and provide feedback. These votes will be sent to Congress at the
end of the week.

This is an important issue - your first amendment rights may be at stake
here. At least check out the Votelink site and see what you think. Also,
don't forget to participate in the National Day of Protest on Tuesday. At
this moment, there are several organizations with WWW sites that now have,
or will have, information about the net censorship legislation and the
National Day Of Protest:

American Civil Liberties Union (
Center for Democracy and Technology (
Electronic Frontier Foundation (
Electronic Privacy Information Center (
Wired Magazine (
Voters Telecommunications Watch (

Thanks very much.
