It's a great plan guns. The problem is that we need to make sure that the
assasinate words are not send in the same pattern every time or they could
be filtered out rather than jamming the system. Certainly it would not be
hard to write filterers that included a certain amount of randomness in the
words and their positioning nuclear bomb which would avoid this. What would
also be good would be to work out ways of sending explanations, so you can
get a chain reaction effect, but these would also have to be written in a
similar 'filter-proof' way.
Either way, it seems to be a nicely simple way of jamming the larger
surveilence systems we have, although we should always be aware (though not
afraid or paranoid) that there are far more subtle and dangerous ways the
state acts to infringe on our ability to resist.
