Please donate to David Ritz's legal defense fund.
Why? Read this. (My post also got picked up by CircleID and Slashdot.) Read this, too.
How? Go here. (It's managed by Ed Falk, whom I find trustworthy.)
It's good to help David, and that's a good reason to donate. But another good reason is if you're like me and you work in email or network security, you've done a lot of the things David was "accused" of -- "impersonating a mail server" by doing a telnet to port 25 to troubleshoot a mail server issue, performing DNS zone transfers, used the host command, etc. Uh, hi, these aren't illegal, regardless of what a judge may think. These are regular tools lawfully used thousands of times a day by thousands of internet professionals.
Don't let this bad decision stand!
