If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

Computers Are Thick

And computers can't cope with:
  • Ink other than black or blue (do you think a very pale blue counts?)
  • Lower-case letters
  • Answers that go outside the box
  • Ticks that are the wrong way round
  • Crossing-out and writing above the line
  • Ticking all the boxes when told to "tick all that apply"
  • Ticking several boxes when told to "tick one box only"
  • Coffee stains
  • Rips and tears
  • Muddy pawmarks
  • Religions with more than 17 characters in their description
  • Responders who ignore navigation instructions (like answering questions 27 to 31 when told to go straight to question 32).
There's all sorts of ways this could go wrong.
