I think that is the craziest part, that again the people involved know about, that they can never hope to control all the software in the world. And as much as they can might be able to stop ordinary americans using real encryption they have no chance of stopping the 'terroists' that they claim to be really trying to spy on.
When politicians say this things - you can maybe believe that they don't understand the impossibility of undermining encryption such that only the 'good guys' can do it. But the director of the FBI, would must know what he is talking about, and must know that its just completely wrong.
Its hard to say what i would think, when it comes to a personal family member, but honestly, freedom is worth the price.
Unfortunately this is a recurring theme that GCHQ has tried to push on each of last few governments seemingly in an attempt to legalise what they are already doing.
You could easily right, its something that we will have to fight for when the time comes.
I don't disagree that hosts file might not be better, adblock is just a very simple solution, for non Slashdot users, my point is simply that I am not interested in working around the problem, I would be more interested in solving the problem at the source.Clearly ISPs are lacking proper regulation, net neutrality is being allowed to be destroyed, by a lack of response to such things.
Everyone agrees that its easily worked around, a simple adblock extension will do it, but the point is rather more serious, that comcast think its ok to supply you not with the internet, but the internet according to comcast.
take em to court for claiming to provide free internet and actually providing something quite different
Its true, I prefer the upstart syntax, but either way, its a damn sight better than those scripts that we had to write for years. Why must people hang on so much to the old when there are so many clear advantages.

Maybe thats what they tell you, but I get near to 80 Gbps - here in eastern europe.
in the same way any company using open source can pay for a professional code audit
Great, buy some closed source software, and you will have no idea when such a bug is found, at least here once it was found, everybody knew, and a fix was made available quickly, no attempt to cover it up or pass it off as nothing important
Because most people only want to watch it once. Any they don't want to wait for the whole thing to download.
must of been a really difficult decision, long live the pirate bay!
