There's only one problem.... information filters and digital postage are

remailer site doesn't require digital postage, twits will still be able

self-protection, is it unreasonable to that people get protected via
some set of rules?

violence, instead of claiming that everyone must train themselves in
martial arts so they can defend themselves.....
