Legal "If you download potentially copyrighted software, videos or music, your Internet service provider has been watching, and they're coming for you. Specifically, they're coming for you on Thursday, July 12. That's the date when the nation's largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users' bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials." One day, years from now, historians are going to debate whether this was the point of no return.

WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS POST IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO EXTREME AND DIRECTLY SEXUAL LANGUAGE AND HOMOPHOBIC TERMS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.










Fuck you--all of you--MPAA/RIAA dick-sucking corporations who are engaging in this gay ass-fucking privacy degeneration of an "agreement." Fuck off and go to hell, cocksuckers. I'm sorry, but I can not speak nicely of bullshit like this. I'm not sure if I should take this as a cue to download more shit illegally than ever before to take a stand, or to just use an anonymizer like Tor?

And will this effect all ISP accounts, no matter when they were set up, or just those that became active on or after July 12? Or even sometime before--will any ISPs change their TOS before then to get ready? What happens when such changes are made; do we get to, you know, *agree* on them, or are they forced down our throats lick a cock?

By the way, my choice of ISP around here seems to be either AT&T, Road Runner through Time Warner Cable, or... eh, EarthLink through... Time Warner Cable. Motherfucking monopolies.

Really, I normally download "legal" stuff so I'm normally out of those bastards' cross-hairs, but this kind of "playing cops" bullshit really pisses me the fuck off. But then, while Linux and BSD distributions are legal, they are also copyrighted. Looks like I'm fucked no matter what.

And by the way, please excuse the moderate alcohol influence on top of my normal thought process, mood and language. Too bad I just normally think that way, and alcohol just "enhances" those thoughts.

I know I've been warned, but you equating the proposed ISP "actions" to homosexuality is quite frankly offensive and just plain wrong.

What you are searching for, to describe this fuckery, is rapists. There is nothing in consensual male-male sex that comes close to what our spying US ISP Overlords are planning to do.

I think he was referring to... "back-doors"
