I'd have to back this up. I've also noticed a significant increase in
the number of stupid flamewars on LUG lists because someone sends a
message which 99% of the list thinks is acceptable, but that one or two
people feel they can use the new laws as a mallet to stop.
For example, free training days with major vendors are explicitly
allowed to be advertised on the list I am thinking of, but an ACA
employee still thought he should start a flame war about how that was a
breach of the law.
Ah well, whatever.
