Surely in this internet age, anyone writing a blog or publishing a web page is the equivalent of 'The Press' in the days these precedents were set. In those days, there were no large multi-national media conglomerations, most of the 'Press' was local to a town or district and the editorial reflected the views of the (local) editor. "The Press" was anyone who could set up a printing press, employ some journalists (though some were one-man bands), print a paper and get people to buy it. So modern day blogs are just as much (or even more) in the spirit of what the drafters of the First Amendment to the US Constitution considered "The Press" as the current TV news and newspaper conglomerates.
Will NFTables still allow packets to be selectively (eg certain TCP SYN packets) passed to a user-space filter which both mangles the packet and dynamically changes the NATting? With IP tables this was relatively simple (both defining the Iptables rules and writing the userspace filter)
Maybe this is just a case of Not Invented Here, and the broadcasters are wishing that they had thought of, and implemented, first the idea of streaming live on the internet and having a PVR like service. The BBC has had this for some time allowied you to stream the currently broadcast programmes and more recently allowed you to pause and resume, as you can on a PVR. Other UK broadcasters have similar internet offerings, some even allowing you to watch certain programmes before they are broadcast on-air.
IBM did try this with the PS/2 range which used the proprietary Micro-channel slots instead of ISA. This was a spectacular flop.
It is not just professional singers who do not need electronic 'tricks' to produce good music. Many churches, schools, colleges etc have excellent choirs, and have done since before the recorded music industry was even thought of. Similarly there are many excellent amateur orchestras, and Northern British collieries had world famous brass bands - whose members were miners.
If the blocks are applied to any IP address pointed to by a blocked site, maybe as a demonstration a blocked site should add the IP addresses of all of the major UK political parties, BBC iPlayer, Youtube, Netflix, lovefilm etc. If mainstream media sites get (automatically) blocked then perhaps the backlash might force TPTB into either removing the requirement to block or require the ISPs to use a blocking mechanism with less potential for collateral damage.
Now the government will put a tax on piss...

And if you, because of disease or accident, have had your penis amputated, should you therefore be sent to the women's facility?
The question here is why women should care who they are sharing a (public) bathroom with? As far as I know women normally 'do their business' in the privacy of a closed (and unless the lock is broken, locked) cubicle. In places such as clubs and at concerts and festivals where the queues for the female facilities are too long, women are quite happy to use the male facilities where men are using the urinals in open view. So if they are prepared to use the mens bathroom when it suits them, they should not care if the (to outward appearance female) woman using the adjacent cubicle used to be a man.
I don't know, but I recently read that 50% of all birth defects involve the sexual organs, apparently it's not that uncommon for surgeons to have to decide soon after the child is born.
Why do surgeons have to decide soon after birth? Are the ambiguous genitalia life threatening? Why not just leave alone and let nature take its course and either defer the gender determination or take a DNA sample and use that to determine whether the baby is male or female. I am sure that many governments would be in favour of the latter, having a record of everyone's DNA taken at birth would be Big Brothers pipe dream.
There are home routers which support IPv6. I am using one - a Techicolor TG582n with an IPv6
Does that not depend on the company with which the domain is registered? Some will automatically create a default web page advertising the registrar. Then, if the domain is only used for mail or only sub-domains are used
But it not his email provider which is not encrypting the connections, but the supplier's email provider over whom he no control.
No. The ISP connects to BT Wholesale using PPTP
Correction, I should have written L2TP not PPTP.
