Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just before everyone over there puts on their on their pink jammies with the cute little rabbits feet (A Christmas Story) and toddles off to bed, wanted to get in a few thoughts.

the dKos problem:

Major problem over there right now is that the young Kossacks who self-appoint themselves to enforce the FAQ (the jaded among us refer to them as the Kostapo) are not learned in the law and the FAQs are not drafted with legal precision.

If ET goes this route, I suggest that a Code Jerome be drafted by a team of lawyers, where all offenses to the security of the Realm, both felonies and misdemeanors, be very precisely defined, with copies of the Code distributed to each reader.

Trial as well as appelate procedures should precisely spelled out also.

I much prefer the English system, but unfortunately the jurisdiction is apparently France.

Perhaps this conversation could lead to a second thread about what we see as positive going on here.

That would be nice too.
