3. oh my

I heard they do this in North Korea too. People need travel papers to travel around the country. But it's near impossible to get the papers correctly so anybody traveling around is always in violation. Everybody is guilty of something all the time.

7. That is intentional in all countries: it gives law enforcement a way to hold anyone

for anything at any time.....you know...just in case....

"Rule of Law" is only for the little guy.

5. Share a password, break the law!

I mentioned this casually at a staff meeting and was nearly laughed out of the room. I had them look up the state code on computer crimes and sure enough, sharing your credentials and accessing a system with someone else's credentials are both criminal acts under state law.

I don't think it made much of an impact on the staff however my boss did finally get rid of the post-it-note on his monitor where he kept his password.

6. Isn't that just when you are sharing services?

Like if you have a nyt.com subscription and give it to someone else so they can read the nyt for free. I can understand that being wrong. I would doubt that allowing someone else to read your email could be illegal.

8. BugMeNot is illegal then.

Now I know what all those FEMA camps are for.

Internment, anyone?

10. Our state law is pretty broad in scope.

I think that it is meant to hold employees responsible if they give an unauthorized person access to any private network. I doubt that it would show up on any prosecutor's radar unless significant damages were involved.

9. As I read the top half, I was thinking of

 

the way some people are trying to run Democratic Underground. And I am not thinking of the Admin either.
