I very much doubt that, people don't really feel the need to say that murder
is bad, it's a given.  I am not aware of the militia movement, gun owners,
Irish, Catholics, or New York Residents taking to the streets
for Oklahoma City, nor am I aware of any mathematicians, survivalists,
neoluddites,  anarchists, Pols, Chicago residents, anarchists, or hooded
sweatshirt aficionados gathering together to express their discontent with
the unabomber's motivation.

Let's for a moment pose the plausible enough scenario that a poster on this
list was a child molester.  Would it then be the duty of everyone on this
list to gather together, find TV cameras, and say that pedophilia is wrong?
