DDoS democratic election system...
I recieved the attached text in my mail on April 1st. I just now saw it. I'm assuming it is a April Fools joke... but after reading it... I though some of you hear might like to see it too.
I know there are several people here who really like political posts... if thats what this is?
Security Experts, Liability Limited sent it to me.

It's an April Fool's Joke that appeared on SecurityFocus' Bugtraq.

I figured as much! I just thought that it was rather interesting...
I don't know much about the election system or the laws governing it... but sounds like it could work? lol

This is a great idea!
Vendor parliaments can prevent this attack by establishing a convenient
dictatorship or a monarchy, or becoming the 51th state. In the States,
candidates outside the bipartisan system are usually listed just as
a harmless prank, and would not be missed.
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

For a joke, some one spent a lot of time and effort on this one! Very interesting reading.
