A broad characterization of   site with that many users can't help but 
sweep much speech that doesn't fit the presumption.

I, for example, have been using Myspace to promote my candidacy in the 
Democratic Primary for the United States Senate, clearly core protected 
speech, and pretty effective. http://www.myspace.com/ben_masel 

Is anyone preparing to seek injunctive relief should this pass? I want 
in as a listed plaintiff, should this happen before my Sept. 12 Primary 
(or after if I pull the upset of the decade v Herb Kohl.)

I've thus far spotted about 30 Candidates with myspace presences.
