It's far worse than imperfect, it too is a travesty. What it
does is equate allegation with proof, and turns the adjudication
over to large corporations instead of the courts. It doesn't do
these things on it's face, but unless you have the resources to
become your own tier 1 service provider (e.g. Larry and Bill,
but just about nobody else), it has the same practical effect
on the internet.
