OSNews, Generic OSes ...and we're back. Like so many other sites on the web, OSNews joined the worldwide protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT-IP Act, which threaten to end free speech, economic innovation, privacy, and the free exchange of information on the web. I don't wish to waste too many words on our participation, so consider this item as a sort of comment lightening rod to make sure that when the next story is posted, we can focus fully on its topic. Update: DC seems to be getting the message the internet sent today.

What a full decayed world. Mankind is utterly lost. Comments from cold-hearted IT parents. Well, let's just wait when your daughter loses her virginity at 12, I want to see your faces... and then you come here, to support some kind of control over something you couldn't control yourself from a wider aspect point of view. You can keep your home PCs protected, but you don't know your neighbors' parental control situation, do you? And I bet they are totally morons who have no clue what a ten year old child is able to access on the internet and pass it on.

SOPA may not have anything to do with this, but it helps to start the talk about this.

I'm not american, but who HERE are to defy the most powerful & influential nation in the world at present time?

Nevertheless, these rules need to be done collective between nations. 80% of downloadable porn is hosted in the USA. We should think better. There are major society problems we need to deal with instead of going on about liberty.

So when a 12 year old girl loses her virginity it is because there is internet porn? What a wonderfully simple world you must live in.

It's funny. OSNews is restricted to a small circle of readers. We need to get the better picture here. The world is just not this small group of people who are able to setup parental restrictions on a computer. And even if they were, there are no guarantees that the next door won't have that available.

I don't get what the moaning is about. OSNews itself "censors" many commenters. Thom himself used of censorship in my comments (last time "hitting the mod hammer" bringing it to -24 or something). What is this moaning about? You can do whatever you want in your site, but you want the internet totally free as in beer... I think you're kind of getting all wrong.

Some of you may live in wealthy countries, but the majority of countries have huge problems in society concerning children education, narcotics and violence, and technology is playing a part on this. Want it or not. Something major playing out there and geeks come here to cry out for their liberty. Purposely I get modded down by who knows who just because I "violated" the reasoning of democracy.

I don't care about democracy as far as technology is helping to construct a demented sick society full of unbalanced people.

Let's pay attention to South Africa which wins as the highest rank in raping all over the world. BBC documentaries showing entire societies in which 6 in 10 women have been raped, not only raped but this caused by a relative. Don't you think that the porn industry and free access to it plays a part in this world, from your comfortable chair and wealthy PC. What is this attitude that "now that we're grown up, let's not give a f**k!"

We better have the internet controlled by a major league of nations enrolled into the single purpose of bringing sanity to the internet.
