EFC's Registry of Canadians Opposed to CompuServe Censorship


Electronic Frontier Canada is opposed to CompuServe's recent decision to censor Usenet newsgroups. In typical Canadian style, many CompuServe customers are "voting with their feet". As a service to Canadians who have decided to cancel their CompuServe accounts, EFC is in the process in setting up this email registry.

Here's our idea: Your friends and colleagues will need to have an easy way to find out your new email address if you've left CompuServe. This way, they can visit this convenient web page to find out how to reach you in cyberspace.
