Submission + - UK House of Lords to Ban Rapidshare (

QuoteMstr writes: "Besides being the run-of-the-mill Internet censorship, banning "web lockers" raises questions about what sites quality. "I was even more horrified to discover on Thursday that Razzall and Clement-Jones had withdrawn their amendment and entered a new one, jointly with the Tory Lords, that was specifically aimed at eliminating "cyber-lockers" (also called "web lockers") – services like Google Docs, YouSendIt, RapidShare and so on – that allow users to upload files that are too big to be attached to email, and send a private download URL to the recipient instead.""

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
