To the Editor:
I am writing in reply to legislation proposed by Rhode Island State Senators Frank Ciccone and Hanna Gallo to impose a blatantly unconstitutional new Rhode Island sin tax upon online adult entertainment.
Am I safe in guessing that neither Ciccone nor Gallo know what proxy servers are, or how they can be used? Among the Internet’s greatest strengths is that it was deliberately designed to bypass and go around government or other obstructions. Perhaps it now is time for Rhode Island voters to replace totally ignorant Luddite prudes, such as Ciccone and Gallo, with new state senators who are far less clueless and far more technologically savvy.
