With all the snooping going on (by governments and the data center raids that happen in the US), I'd like to find an *offshore* (maybe Europe?) provider who emphasizes 'freedom' aspects, such as end to end security, data encryption on local disks, keeping absolute minimal logs/purging them frequently; as well as having a decent enough set of spam filters that they actively maintain. I *want* to pay for the sevice since I don't want ads or to have to spend time blocking stuff. I'd like to support a right-thinking ISP; are there any left, out there? Help me find a trusted offshore ISP that will likely be around and who does not do DPI and other evil things. Any recommendations for well-behaved ISPs out there?"

only if it was a very very crap spam filter.

most spam filters i've worked on use weightings and so when importing this information it would add a strong weighting for
that user against that mail and not so strong weighting against the mail for other users. Other users could have weighting
for this mail as ham which should cancel the weighting against not to mention many other mitigating factors.

a good spam checker rarely rules out a message on a single criterion.

and your comment will be judged by your cowardice.

racism is when someone treats someone different because the are from a specific race , in this instance i am alleging that an Israeli run website will be instinctively biased toward exaggeration of
facts that show Arabic people in a bad light.

i think it would take a special kind of ignorance to state publicly that Israel was not a country that had a predilection for racism.

have a look at the whois for debka

      DEBKAfile Ltd.
      4, Hamaapilim St.
      Jerusalem, 92545

why should anyone trust news about Arabic interests that is published by people living in Israel ?

it would certainly suit Israeli interests to discredit the security of Iran and its the kind of racism that
seems to be all too common in Israel .

maybe in a computer game but in real life we have this thing called the geneva convention which all the sensible countries in the world have signed up to that prevents that sort of medieval behaviour.

the rest of the world is watching america waiting for china to finish you off.
