Considering who is promising the review, I wonder if there will be prison sentences for typos and floggings for clogging keyboards with pizza crumbs?

Aside from any likely governmental ridiculousness, the act does need an overhaul so this is hopefully going to be a good thing, also including recommendations or standards for in house hygiene may be helpful as a means to go some way towards preventing attacks in the first place.
