I like this initiative to create symbols to represent the most relevant aspects of provacy policies, so that people don't need to read all the detail on every site (always at least a page away anyway). I like much more the comments Aza makes at the end of the posting about why it might work.

With WikiLeaks back in the news, this story from 2009 is more relevant than ever. Having rendered WikiLeaks "illegal" last year, it's now easy to target it without causing a stir. Banning links is simply pointless as it's easily circumvented and inapplicable outside their jurisdiction. Once someone makes that clear, the next step could be to criminalise clicking on links to banned sites (perhaps as part of the proposed ISP filtering), at which point we've got to "thought police" living. This is the web equivalent of "security theatre" and it's to be despised anywhere it shows up.
