    They're not actually deleting anything, they're just going to (if they do) show a little page instead of the wiki article you requested.

    Well I guess lawmakers would care... if they actually used the internet. Only Ted Stevens understood it and he's dead.

    Also Edgeworth, I hate you for keeping discussion of this bill alive. I want it to pass already and be strictly enforced jsut to see people cry.
