ï»¿Ethnic cleansing 2010
Hey, it's sunset in the solstice; that's the right time of year for this. (Dang, missed the eclipse.)
It's ethnic cleansing time out there on the web, folks. Batten down the hatches and open a few more ports, darn the spammers and charge up the hill of beans.
I wonder of Palestine counts here. Or gays in the military. Or the more quiet and reasonable approaches of our draconian third-world friends. (Venezuela, we're looking at you today.)
Back on topic. The US HATES wikileaks... (lets not get personal, eh?), bit torrent users, anything to do with Mexican Pharma laws, downloaders, political sites like prisonplanet.org, etc, etc, etc.
So it's removing them from the web, bit by bit.
Man, there's NONHING like â€œ A couple hate campaigns before breakfast?â€� culture, is there? Three minute youtube rants just aren't enough anymore.
Establishment politics, BIG money and anyone who thinks the world is over 6000 years old is getting enemies removed from the web, from what I can see.
Spam, not so much. Porn, only if someone makes money off it. (Like craiglist)
Twitter feeds/spam and facebook leaks of private info? Not a big concern.
Trolls are already out there giving freedom of speech a bad name (incoherent youtube remarks? I'm guilty as charged. So what?)
with FUD spam, copyright takedowns, libel laws and (like the brits.) pure force takedowns being the official response. (Another file-sharer site, there. ONE copyright violation in years and the whole ISP was taken down. Only officially-approved movie vendors these days, thanks.)
Politics seems to be hate-campaigns and self-serving crapola. Opportunistic cannibalism from bottom feeders waving a red flag in front of a bull.
With BIG telicos going the cable subscription model, lets ALL move to a free web.
Even if we have to invent a new democracy to do it.
