No reputable psychotherapist would blur the distinction between gays
and pedophiles, much less try to make an outright connection. This is
just hate-group propaganda, piggybacking on what might otherwise be an
actual news story.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Thanks for saying that ... out of
curiosity, I went to look at the site last night for
the first time in my life, to see what apparently makes it such a
famous and popular site, and to find out what would make it worth
fighting over, as Kremen did with that fellow who apparently tried
to cybersquat on it (remember the fellow who snatched the name, got
sued, and the registrar wound up getting sued also, and the lawyer
who was going to get a piece of the action as his fee in the case?)
I _thought_ I was going to see something really amazing, etc. Well,
all I wound up seeing was a sort of poorly designed web site with a
jillion links to other sites on it, all of which wanted your credit
card number, etc. Over all, it was sort of boring, with slow
responding links, etc. (Of course my computer is not the fastest,
and to be charitable, maybe the links were so slow loading because
of the millions of web users trying to get in and supply their credit
card numbers, etc, but I don't think so. Of course, I did not feel
very well last either, but it is hard for me to imagine some lawyer
agreeing to settle for _fifteen percent_ of the action on that site
in exchange for his fee, then suing the client to get that little dab
of (what appeared to me to be) nothing special. I understand the
registrar who got sued in that thing settled for $150 thousand. Damn!
Is _any_ web site worth that kind of money? How and why? Would
someone like to hijack from me? I'd be
glad to let you do it, if there was any possibility I could 'settle
out of court -- or in court, for that matter -- for $150 thousand from
the transgressor. Geeze ... PAT]
