Apparently, when I requested a copy of the OCAF's "Agincourt
Project" white paper, I got put on one of their interest lists.

This note was sent to me today.  I've heard of other people
receiving similar (or identical) notes after requesting the
OCAF white paper.  It's very frightening, and I think a
combination of this with a summary of the OCAF paper (which
I *think* I already put in the CR Library) might serve to
bring attention to these wannabe morality police.

It's things like this that make me want to use anonymous

Thank you for requesting our document "The Agincourt Project".
We hope you have had time to read and digest it.  And we very
much hope you will join us in our fight to end illegal pornography
and child pornography on the Internet.

-  If you are a concerned citizen, we hope you will follow the
   suggestions in our Action Plan.  We need your help to get
   our document in the hands of law enforcement officials
   across America.  This is a complicated issue, but we have
   found that once the police and prosecuting attorneys
   understand how an ISP operates, the criminal liability of
   the ISP becomes obvious.

-  If you are a law enforcement official or a prosecuting
   attorney responding to our notices of potential illegal
   activity in your jurisdiction, we are ready to answer
   any questions you or your staff may have.

-  If you are a representative of a media organization, we
   stand ready to answer any questions you may have and to
   make ourselves available for interviews.

-  And, finally, if your are an Internet Service Provider -
   commercial, university, or library -  who is concerned
   about our activities, your concern is justified.  We hope
   that you have already made the decision to remove illegal
   pornography and child pornography from your news server.
   And we sincerely thank you if you have done so.  If you have
   not, please understand that we are receiving help from
   concerned citizens across the United States.  Sooner
   or later, law enforcement in your area will be contacted.

   Also understand that we do not intend to find one large
   ISP for a test case.  We are encouraging law enforcement
   in every city to use existing laws to put an end to
   the illegal pornography and child pornography in

Again, thank you for your interest in our work.
