Like I said yesterday:

I've said it many times before, and will say it again. The UK is not what it used to be. It used to be the bastion of European freedom, the saviors against Hitler.

At this time, they're exactly the opposite. They're on the front-lines of oppression, limiting freedom of speech and monitoring online and offline behavior all in the name of "save the children".

Remember, we let neo-nazis and racists rally, and we let fundamentalists protest funerals and abortion clinics. This is freedom.

Mod parent up. Lot's of people don't understand that this is the tradeoff society makes when implementing freedom of speech: it also applies to speech that you don't agree with.

End result is, his connection is being tampered with, and he is not recieving the service he paid for.

True that, and I fully agree. BUT: the article suggests something far more evil than the evidence provided suggests, and that's what annoys me.

And like I said, transparent proxying has been done for a long time, and is actually undergoing a phase of renewed youth thanks to CDN/TIC solutions like PeerApp and this Brocade/Bluecoat solution.

I call bullshit without more evidence. From the article:

When it detects the STARTTLS command being sent from the client to the server, the mobile wireless provider modifies the command to âoeXXXXXXXX.â The server does not understand this command and therefore sends an error message to the client.

This smells like a transparent proxy for mail, in a similar manner is providers have been doing transparent proxying for a long time. This does not necessarily have anything to do with DPI and selectively modifying server's responses to client requests.

The whole article is written by folks who clearly have no idea about how the internet works.

France is a leader in aviation (#2 exporter) and european aerospace,, medicine, nuclear fuel reprocessing, genetics, second largest defense tech maker, France is ranked #4 in research after U.S, Japan, Germany.

France is also the number one destroyer of their own economy, with everyone going on strike as soon as someone farts and doesn't say "excusez moi".

Seriously, fuck the French with all their strikes. I'm avoiding France like the plague, and never ever will I travel through CDG again if I can avoid it. Half of the time the flight is cancelled, or someone is on strike. Whether that is ATC, pilots, cabin crew or ground personnel.

And as you could read in the source I spoke about, flight crew other than the aircraft commander have no special arrest authority. That means flight attendants don't have the power to arrest someone just because they are flight attendants. And I don't recall the statement about them being able to arrest someone was specific to felonies. But that's moot.

No you did not. I said "they do have the power to arrest", to which you replied "No, they don't".

I then listed multiple sources pointing out that your statement is wrong. I never said the FAs rights are derived from their employment. I merely said: they do have the right to arrest". As a citizen, and as flight crew based on the delegated authority of their captain.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code. -- Dave Olson
