Nice one BT...

And while it's widely known, BT haven't blackholed the IP.

So...

They check your laptop if you're a paedo? So they should just use live linux CDs and they'll be safe. Nice one, police.

ISPs told to keep filesharer naughty list

Eh?

Why would it affect the next occupiers of a property, exactly?

People are blacklisted, not addresses. Timestamps will prove who was the registered occupant at the time.

£15 a month for legal P2P?

Hrrm...

Spend 15 quid a month on this "legal p2p" with the restrictions that go along with it, be it selection, devices you can use or watch it on or whatever?

Or spend 15 quid a month on a seedbox, usenet subscription etc, and do all your p2p "in the cloud"?

There's a 50/50 chance of you being abducted by aliens tonight while you sleep? Having been experimented on by extra-terrestrials would go a long way to explaining your understanding of frequency probability.

Knowing the facts fail

In the case of Sheffield, they got to the stations in plenty of time. 2hrs+ before the polls closed, in most cases. Some were made to queue for 3 hours, while watching "residents" jump the queue.

I'd say the polling station hadn't prepared for the influx, but they knew how many had registered, so knew how many to prepare for. That and the fact that only the young were made to wait, with residents fast-tracked, isn't people (apart from those in charge) being idiots. It's discrimination. Idiot.
