The Friday Dump?
The Federal Elections Commission has the new Internet rules
on the agenda for its meeting on Monday.
CNet is reporting that the Election commission takes light touch with Net regs
. It doesn't look that onerous, but there really hasn't been an explanation for the need.
The 'Net is generally self-regulating. If you do something that a consensus feels is beyond the pale, you will receive punishment as soon as you are found out. No one has forgiven the "hired bloggers" that Thune used, and he will be punished for that. The "hive memory" is never wiped and anyone can find the relevant information with a search engine.
