Best comments on the article,
The Registries, and especially, especially the adjunct idiotic laws that they have enabled and promoted (e.g. Banishment), are counterproductive, negligibly beneficial, immoral, un-American, divisive, anti-factual, diversionary, often idiotic, thieving, expensive, wasteful, and often illegal.
