     [this kind of thing was suggested a few years ago by tim
      may on the cypherpunks list after some regulators came
      up with the brilliant idea--maybe it was called 'Child-
      Watch' or somesuch--of mandatory age-flags for *users*,
      e.g., 'under 18,' 'female,' etc. he pointed out the ease 
      with which such a 'protective' system could be co-opted 
     'by pedophiles' as a way to *find* (for example) little 
      girls on the net--hence the name he gave this bit-flipped 
      system: 'LolitaWatch.' cheers, t]
