I used Ion3 for a long long time and it's disappearance in the repositories meant I couldn't upgrade. I was *so* happy when Notion came along and forked Ion3.
No, he had no counter-argument.
Child pornography is universally morally abhorrent. The definition of 'child' and the age of legal sexual consent differs from state to state to country, but the first worlders have it pretty much set at about 16+ years (Japan being a strange exception with some provinces at 13). Google does filter child pornography (http://www.google.com/goodtoknow/familysafety/faq/). Did I read you right? Did you say they didn't? But are they right to do this? Yes. No thought required, the automatic affirmative is the correct answer. It's not a slippery slope of censorship, but it is Google policing the flow of information and it is the minimum essential moral obligation a global corporation like Google can do in a world where there is no globally held morality.
Finding links to download the latest hollywood blockbuster on Google isn't even a far distant cry to filtering for child pornography - the two are not even comparable and the distinction is false.
Emanual should be mortally ashamed for even thinking policing child pornography and policing links to torrents equate.
viva la France!
At least they don't have Freedom Fries and designated Free Speech Zones. You need to lighten up and realise your government has you bent over the bench just as much.
Thanks for that link - I was quite impressed (and that's a bit hard to do these days). On the strength of that I donated and and am downloading it in it's entirety.
I hope they make their 40K goal.
