Nailed it.

I also recall this story - simple point to take from this:

The reason the emails and hence his servers are being 'blacklisted' is due to the *content* of the message.

I am sure there are *many* companies out there that send emails out on this scale (and much more/often). I am to lazy to cite but think about it....

Please bring back the wild west of the internet, not much is free in this world now and I don't just mean in the monetary sense.

Why is this person being censored?

As you seem to like statistics, I don't think the cars will be 'self driving' 100% of the time. If I was 'driving' the car and came accross a steep drop - I would take control.

Are you expecting to just hop in your car and fall asleep and let your car take you to your destination?

You might aswell keep dreaming for flying cars all over the place...

I have a Acer laptop and I use SoundCloud.

Any hint to operating system? No. We will have to assume Windows then. Which is confirmed by the first post within a couple of minutes [where is the frosty piss post?] :

'Windows: Microsoft Security Essentials, free if you have Microsoft Windows XP or higher, and it does work especially for the technical, not too adventerous link clicker. Gives you that extra layer of protection you seem to want for those 'oh shit' moments.'
