Not really anything to say. We all know how horrible electronic voting is. I wonder if there is a way to get out to the normal media w/o illegally hosting internal communications.

Nans- Glad you asked. All i meant was that 1) electronic voting, as implemented by Diebold, has many fatal flaws and 2) there has got to be a way to reveal this fact to the media and have the media reveal it to the people of US.

The relationship between diebold electronic voting and diebold internal communications is that their internal communications admit to the failures of their electronic voting system.* By "internal communications" i just mean memos or private company reports.

*I have not read the infringing documents so I am surmising this.

Diebold must be running scared. This cease and desist is like Faux going after Franken.

"Diebold is the owner of copyrights in certain correspondence relating to its electronic voting machines that was stolen from a Diebold computer ("Diebold Property")

If this is the memo I'm thinking of, then it was taken from an unsecure ftp. Not exactly stolen and not exactly Diebold Property.
