Poll question: How do you feel about the terrorist watch list?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. The list is a terrible idea.
If a 'terrorist' is a suspect, why in the hell would we want them to know it? And most of the people on that list can't be reasonably modeled as terrorists. Furthermore, there's no way to ~remove~ your name if you find out you're on it. And attempting to push the issue of having your name removed would only serve to appear that you had something to hide (!).

This one's up there with 'bring your doctor a chicken'.
