You really think they read our threads?
Nope, I don't. It's just that the attitude isn't productive and could even be counter productive. The OLCC has said that they want to get the law fixed, not bust homebrewers, so name calling isn't necessary or helpful.
We recently had a farm in the area run into legal issues. The town would rather have the farm turned into some sort of development for the tax revenue. The farmer published the letters and contact info for the officials - ultimately the farm was allowed to continue it's business. I'm sure some of the letters we far from eloquent. All kinds of people are affected by government; aside from outright profanity or legal issues - they probably need to hear it.
Maybe AHA can provide contact info and the outrage can be directed there instead of turning this board into NC-17 material.
As I've said, we have a local group, including state legislators working on it, with support from the AHA. There's a website (http://oregonhomebrewersalliance.org/
) set up, although it's just been set up and there's no real content there at the moment. Interested OR homebrewers can keep an eye on it for info on what needs to be done and when. At this point, there's not much to be done beyond what the organizing committee is doing, which includes reviewing a draft of a bill written by a state legislator.
And what's up with the NC-17 comment?
