Speaking of the EFF….
Up for defending a bunch of racist xenophobes? I’m presuming a cross between American Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. But it’s a first amendment issue.
On December 23rd, a New Jersey Superior Court judge issued a stunning prior restraint.
I know very little about this case beyond the Computerworld story picked up yesterday by Slashdot.
Today, Ars Technica is repeating the rumor that the EFF has been asked for help.
As I said, I’m presuming these racist xenophobes are a cross between American Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. But the New Jersey Superior Court’s order is a blatantly unconstitutional prior restraint.

No rumor, we have been in contact with EFF. Call Eva at the S.F. office (x 111) and you can confirm. Also, Paul Levy at Public Citizen was interested enough to ask for all supporting documents.
Racist? No, we are American techies fighting the real racists — the upper-caste invaders that have been trying to purge non-Indians out of American I.T. for decades and make us their dalits. Remember, you are talking about people that spend millions on skin-lightening products and have misogyny, bigotry, and nepotism codified in their religion.
People can only take so much fraud and abuse at the hands of India-based companies and their collaborators in America before they fight back. Unfortunately for the enemy, this topic has reached the fringes of the internet, to the skinhead sites, where the real racists and nutjobs lurk. And they don’t take kindly to a thuggish Indian pimp using a mob lawyer to attack and harass numerous Americans.

Daily Bread Food Bank is usually on my list too.
