Freedom of Speech on the Internet: Journalist Seeking Stories

Has the Internet enabled you to express
yourself and your experiences and opinions? Did
the Internet enable you or your organization to
bypass censors? Did you get the attention of
the mass media through using the Internet?

I am writing a story for ONLINE ACCESS (Oct 94)
on how the Internet enables freedom of speech
and circumvents censorship. Please let me know
if you have in some way bypassed traditional
censors (whether they be official censors,
community censorship, or self-censorship)
through the Internet. This includes expressing
yourself on the Internet in a way that you have
not been able to do so otherwise (such as
participating in erotica online discussion
groups, or assuming a different persona).
Anonymity will be preserved if requested.

Please reply to Michael Strangelove at
mstrange@fonorola.net (do not send your reply
to Usenet newsgroups, as I may miss your
comments). Deadline approaching so please do
not delay in responding.
