It’s hard to imagine but I actually find myself in agreement with the Congress critters on this one.

Members of the House of Representatives have started using technology that makes it difficult for interest groups to send them mass emails.

Already messages must be sent through a form on their web sites, but now senders must solve a simple math problem before the mail will go through.

Considering how many email messages legislators receive every year (almost 100 million for House members), there can’t be much value left for any lobbying group.

Maybe if Congress critters heard directly from the people they’re supposed to represent, with personal messages not dispensed by a cookie cutter, they might pay more attention.

Well, I can dream, can’t I?
