Lets face it all of this crap comes from big media. They are using every tactic, even illegal ones to convince governments that the garbage they create is worth any price to protect. The average citizen of the western world doesn't give two cardinal shits about this. So who else is pushing for it?
If it bothers you that much.
The answer is always no.
Nothing of value was lost.
So Jane says no thanks to phoenix.
Slightly more evil all the time.
Just imagine all those games get that free advertising. "Banned in Australia" could become the new measure of how cool a game is.
Its business. It is the pathological version of business but that is who is in charge at all these corps. I've said it before on here: they are not going to operate at a loss.
Seriously, it seems they know how to entice the befuddled masses in to clicking on their garbage.
Just keep re reading what I posted until you understand what I said. Reading comprehension, how does it work?
I'm pretty sure the end user can filter anything they want. We still maintain a filter on the public parks around here. After all you don't want little johnny to have to ask mommy what the strange man with doing with his thing out on a park bench.
I really want to know so I can get people flagged for making false statements to that effect. We don't have a firewall at all on our internet customers. Its wide open and has been for years. We found throttling ports was self defeating in that the torrent hoarders used encryption and other means to hide their activity anyway. The filter we had was actually causing an additional 30ms of latency and I have missed it at all.
Good luck putting it in bridge mode on the crap AT&T gives out. The last Motorola cheapo I looked at didn't have that capability, just DMZ.
No I would have spotted bad hardware or a badly configured cpe device with our monitoring tools. Its really sucks when you deal with paltry little t1 lines and you end up working on a system that bears little resemblance to the equipment you normally work on. Truth be told a look at the CTMS log files would have showed a ip deadlock.
Yep. You see there is this protocol known as snmp and you can use it to monitor the rf levels and the status of the ethernet and shucks all kinds of things. You should look it up.
