Let us attack first.  Make our own video, beards, blackface, all singing,
all dancing, and the argument against outlawing private ownership of
computers, which is what the 4C Entity and T13 are planning to do.

Sexpots should be used as straightforwardly and brutally as necessary.
Chris DiBona, May Ling Mak, Wendy Seltzer, The Monkey Master, Don Marti,
all the Heathers, all the Deirdres, all the Eri(c|k|q)s, Maddogs, all the
beautiful Seths, etc..  Avoid the odd pudeur of MTV videos, which have a
lot of booty shakin' but at such speeds as to entirely deprive the act of
natural sexual charge.
