Spamming the Govt to get what you want

che 17 August 2007 3

The Australian has this story about fears that when the Federales open up their Govt blog site next year they’ll get spammed by political and lobby groups. The site is designed to promote an interactive approach to policy development using this interweb thingy rather than writing letters which only serious lobbyists and old people do.

So when the time comes my minions remember to jump on there and spam them for all you’re worth demanding cheaper beer and petrol, RiotACT FTW.

Weird! What’s wrong with political and lobby groups? Isn’t that the whole point?

I’ve discovered how to get cheaper beer (bugger the gov’t!). Home brew! If you want ordinary lager that’s what you get, but it’s hard not to fiddle.

I’m a little surprised none of their sites or pages have been hacked or vandalized yet. Must be time to review some of the shenanigans from the last US election and see how they might be adapted to the antipodean environment. Any of the parties would be suitable targets IMHO. They’re all politicians after all and ultimately, all equally deserving of a good old piss take.
