The NZ Herald reports on how Andy Moore has pulled down his Don’t Vote Labour website, after the Electoral Commission said it was an offence to keep it up without an authorisation statement which would mean publishing his family’s address.
In a fit of irony the anonymous Idiot/Savant claims that Moore should not be able to advocate against the Government without listing his name and address. He also rails on about unlimited money when in fact Moore spent less than $50 on his website.
And I/S is wrong when he claims the EFA just updated the definition of an advertisement. It has expanded to include protest placards, chalk slogans, posts into Usenet and even a press release if you publish it on your own website.
