Comment: Parental content control? Really? (Score 1) 256

If "parental content control" means your kids do not learn about sex, I'm opposed to it. In countries where people are ridiculously puritan (i.e., the US) the number of teen pregnancies is 20 times higher than in countries where people are relaxed about sex and nudity (i.e., the Netherlands). I have always supervised my kids, online and offline, but never installed "parental content control".

Hola internet is the most useful plugin. It helps me watch video's from the US, Canada and the UK that are limited to their respective countries. I wonder, I have BBC on my TV, I can rightfully watch any BBC program, but I can't use the service on the bbc web site to watch it a day later. With Hola, I can.

Blocking child pornography will mean that the general audience will not be aware of its existence, hence they will not put pressure on politicians to end child abuse. Blocking child porn is counter productive, that's a fact. This I say as one of the founders of www.meldpunt.org and www.inhope.org.

+ - Dutch gunman claims to be hacker. What?->

Submitted by X10
X10 (186866) writes "Gunman raids news studio of prime time news on public TV in the Netherlands. He claims he's a hacker, and 98 other hackers are backing him up. He's carrying a gun, not a laptop. He gets arrested without a shot. Which is understandable, his gun was fake. Could easily have gotten him killed. What he wanted was 10 minutes time on air for his message.
So you claim to be a hacker, you go to the studio with a gun? Come on...

What would you do to have your ten minutes of fame on prime time TV, preferably without getting caught and without getting shot?"
