US feds: 'Let's make streaming copyrighted content a FELONY'

Zombie Womble

Re: unlimited bandwidth and capless download plans

"You are claiming you need a 120 Mb capless internet connection for watching porn ? You must have some serious callousses in odd places.

For the record. I'm not an anti piracy maniac. In fact, I'm not any kind of maniac."

An ideal world where the internet needs only dial-up because i only ever post uninformed comments on forums and look at my bank statements.

You are not a maniac, just grossly uninformed about the current state of the internet and all the possibilities! Have you heard nothing about the marketing war over streamed television services? Even here in the UK where speeds are lagging way behind, all the major TV suppliers are desperate to win customers for their streaming services. Even Sky is frantically promoting their On Demand. so much for pirates only needing high speeds.

"Expect the extradition requests to flow freely."

This was my immediate thought on reading the headline.

Jail 'em up I say, jail some sense into 'em!

"Don't be silly. There're plenty of drug dealers, bank robbers, and murderers we can parole to make room for the copyright violators."

I can't see them having an issue with that, the worst crimes imaginable are 'stealing' from rich people and exposing the crimes of our governments.

So you do think all men are potential rapists!

"Human nature would also have you attempting to mate with as many females as possible (regardless of their feelings on the matter,) "

Did you just accuse all men of being potential rapists?

Jimbo Wales: ISP smut blocking systems simply 'ridiculous'

Zombie Womble

Re: Jimmy has been listening to radio 5 live

"I don't think ISP admins will be shaking their heads and laughing. They'll be very worried that they're going to be the fall guys in this fiascoette. As soon as one of these filters (inevitably) fails, it'll be the ISP on the end of the Mail's outrage and the threatening letters from lawyers."

Then their reaction should be obvious.

Block everything that could possibly be construed as adult and let Perry and her mob deal with the consequences to the economy!

If I have nothing to hide then why are they spying on me?

Zombie Womble

Re: @Zombie Womble

I am talking about those who support this spying and that is why I specifically said 'some'.

Zombie Womble

I find he willingness of some to surrender all their freedom to unaccountable agencies with unknown agendas quite startling. Some people would rather have a Big Brother type screen in their home than face terrorism with determination and courage. Very depressing.

Man charged over alleged April Jones Facebook trolling

Re: im in 2 minds about this.

"I have a few 'friends' on there that seem to think that they own 'their' page. Asin if I was to post something on there they didn't like, they would act asthough I had defaced their property, the same as graffiti on their house/car whatever."

That's basic internet protocol/manners. A persons webspace should be treated like an extension of their home whereby the owner sets the rules. So just like someone's living room, if you walk in a start talking crap they have every right to evict your ass.

CPS grovels after leaking IDs of hundreds arrested during student riots

Re: Great

".... the fine ultimately comes out of taxpayers pockets."

How? All that happened is that money would be taken from funds given to the CPS by the government and given back to said government. The tax payer loses nothing.

I agree with the unaccountability bit though.

Ten digital radios to suit all budgets

Re: this is radio

When I read the article "to suit all budgets" i thought to myself, I bet the cheapest one will be around £100 and I was spot on, the writers here are out of touch with reality when it comes to some peoples finances.

There you have it, anyone who opts out of filtering isn't a 'caring loving parent'.

How long will it be before they insist on lists of these defective parents?
