Overly Broad is an Understatement

This subpoena is one of the silliest I've encountered.

As an ex-Vice President of the FSF, I feel quite certain
that Eben, Bradley and rms will supply whatever is
reasonable and required by law. I am equally certain
that confidences will be maintained.

This is even more offensive because SCOG is attacking a
501(c)(3) where employees have always earned a minimal
(trivial) amount, and most things are effected thanks to

Forcing the FSF into bankruptcy will do nothing where the
world-wide volunteers are concerned.

(Visualize a gnu, ridden by a penguin and a daemon,
smashing Windows underfoot...)
