Yes, but the point would seem to be that their views  apparently are (or would be) irrelevant in an undemocratically appointed governmental structure.

Ooh, I see the beginning of a "100 emails of THIS sort is excessive" list:

  • A few hundred emails about rectal itch is excessive.
  • A few hundred emails about enlarging your phallus is excessive.
  • A few hundred emails about "Greetings from Bangladesh. I family relative. You must need contact me for unsuspected inheritance" is excessive.

Yes, but this is still their own fault ... Once they dropped the shoot people for asking policy it kicked the door wide open for this kind of shit. Commoners thinking they posses the intelligence to run their own lives...perish the thought!

I dont see any reason *not* to trust it (but I didnt follow any of the links...)
I would have thought it not that suprising by EU standards :-\ although usually they're more bogged down with practical things like whether to ban open containers of olive oil on your restaurant/cafe tables.

In the U.S. they leave things like banning large sodas in the hands of the local government.  It saves them from the embarrassment when everyone throws up the BS flag.... ::)
