US appeals panel has ruled that the proposed new rules for wire taping VOIP calls are nothing short of BS.


A judge said the government's courtroom arguments were "gobbledygook."

Your argument makes no sense," U.S. Circuit Judge Harry T. Edwards told the lawyer for the Federal Communications Commission, Jacob Lewis. "When you go back to the office, have a big chuckle. I'm not missing this. This is ridiculous. Counsel!"

At another point in the hearing, Edwards told the FCC's lawyer that his arguments were "gobbledygook" and "nonsense."

Well, maybe there is still some "common sense" in the courts in the USA. Hopefully they will rule the same way on other rules the Bush Administration is putting in place.

Yeah, well, imagine what we wouldve said if the judge has passed it!

Its good to see at least some of those people have a bit of sense.
