Legal "The pornography filtering system praised by David Cameron is controlled by the controversial Chinese company Huawei, the BBC has learned. UK-based employees at the firm are able to decide which sites TalkTalk's net filtering service blocks." The irony. It hurts.

Well, I guess Huawei has the experience.

Still, we've always been painted a picture of how evil some parts of the world are. Spying on citizens, censorship, freedom of speech suppression, Internet filtering, non-democratic behavior by the government, etc... little did we know it's just the same on our side of the fence.

Please don't mention God,because I'm quite happy we haven't had any visitations from TempleOS lately, although after those Snowden revelations all those CIA/FBI claims of TempleOS may not be so far fetched after all.

Well, China only started blocking VPN connections since the middle of last year, while the major Canadian ISPs have been applying the same technology (DPI) to throttle Internet Traffic (downgrading all encrypted traffic) since at least 2006
