I am having the darndest time trying to remember this word/phrase. I have seen it used many times over the years to describe laws, rules, and policies that are usually very heavy handed and backwards thinking.
Laws that don't really understand the issue they are trying to solve and instead take an almost vindictive approach to solving problems.
For the life of me I can't remember and I keep trying to say it is Gregorian. But I know that is not right.
Does anyone know what I am talking about? I have seen it a lot on techdirt.com.
