The creators-not-consumers Anti-Massacre Web Page
1. What am I signing up for?
Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie, from which this idea is borrowed, is a satirical look at government and law and what a pigs ear they can both make of life, especially one very individual life, yours and/or mine. So what you are signing up for is a bit of tongue in cheek fun poking (as protest) at (dis)organized law and government and also a little bit of space on the site to say 'hi' to the world.
2. Is it likely that I could be arrested for doing this?
It is unlikely that you will be arrested, however your details will be taken down and used as evidence for your existence, on the site.
3. What are the benefits of joining?
None whatsoever as far as I can see, apart from a bit of fun. Though something might occur to me in the future.
4. Is this politically motivated?
5. If I join am I aligning myself with you politically?
You know how it works, guilty by association. In the recent war in Iraq anyone who was anti-war was labeled anti- American or anti-British (Blair) or pro-terrorist, you can figure the rest out for yourself.
6. Will you be storing my information or distributing it to others.
I will definitely be storing your information both on my computer as a backup for the site and I will be storing it on the WWW as part of my site. I will not, however, be using your information in any other way or for any reason other than 'as is' on the site.
7. Why this FAQ?
Welcome to global paranoia. Living with suspicion has become a way of life and I have had many people asking what it's about and why. I hope that I have done nothing to alleviate your suspicions, I think that they are healthy.
8. Will I receive periodic emails about how the anti-massacre movement is going.
Not unless I come under extreme pressure to do that from you and others. Go protest and fight your own war with whatever non-violent means available or occur to you. But do tell me about it.

9. Are you crazy?
10. How do I sign up?
Just send me, keith, firstname.lastname@example.org a photo of yourself, either 100 pixels on its longest side or any photo and I will adjust it for you and check you're happy with the finished result, and few a details about you or whatever, satire, tongue in cheek and general letting rip (very briefly) is encouraged.
