        Dear Professor,

        I think that your message to this group, and also the "Museum", both may
        have unintended consequences.

        :)

          It appears that the notion of unintended consequences is not quite
          as straightforward as I had originally imagined. As the page says,
          the original thought was that an unintended consequence occurs when
          something unexpected and unintended occurs as *a result of the
          establishment of a mechanism or formalism*—such as a law, a rule, a
          regulation, or even a custom or the adoption of an ethical or moral
          precept. Presumably the mechanism or formalism was established with
          the intent of achieving some particular positive result or reducing
          or eliminating something that is considered negative. The unintended
          consequence is almost always different from that end and in many
          cases may be contrary to it.

          Any suggestions about what should and what should not count as an
          unintended consequence are welcome. Examples of unintended
          consequences, especially ones that are striking in their interest and
          surprise value are also welcome.

          Happy New Year.

          o Check out my blog at http://russabbott.blogspot.com/

          A religious act is performed out of good motivation and with
          sincere thought for the benefit of others.

          This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for
          complicated philosophy.

          Your own mind, your own heart is the temple; your philosophy is
          simple kindness.
