Ok, I misspoke.
What I meant is: If a judge decides that a company is up to illegal activities and tells the company to stop then anyone working with that company in spite of this is aiding those illegal activities.
Not quite. The company can get shut down, but only those involved in the actual illegal activity will be prosecuted.
Otherwise you'll have the janitor serving time for something they was completely unrelated to them.
As such, ALS would have to prove the CloudFlare was involved as a conspirator in the illegal activity. Otherwise, CloudFlare has done nothing wrong other than sell there own services.
So no, unless you can show that CloudFlare (or any company) for that matter was involved in the Copyright Infringement (or other illegal activity) then they are absolved of the supposed crime. For example, a bank holds a criminals money; is the bank then a legal conspirator (and therefore guilty) of murder for an Assassin? Or illegal drug possession or drug trafficking for a drug dealer? No. It's no different for CloudFlare and other companies; yes, they may help make websites and services more secure; but they're not participating in the crime itself in any form - no different from the bank.
You have 158,932 annoying video notifications of people who know scratching themselves, burping, and brushing their teeth.
I am not convinced it was not a setup. Under the circumstances, you cannot count on governments acting legally and justly.
the boating spaghetti monster party will promise new pool noodles for all new memebers
Sure, summer's almost over on the top half of the globe, but it's still warm enough for a good pool party, even if it does get political.
They don't even recognise the spaghetti monster as a political party
I thought it was a religion.
Unless you mean the non-flying one.
Topic-specific printed non-professionally-run newsletters did much the same as USENET groups did in bringing together people from around the globe who had similar interests. Granted, they weren't as fast (USENET typically circulated the globe in 24-48 hours in the early days, with some "high-cost-to-deliver" sites taking days or a week or more to get updates).
Amateur radio also had (and still has) similar communities-of-interest but, due to the way radio works, it's difficult to have a true "world-wide" community over amateur radio alone (these days, "hams" take advantage of the Internet so distance isn't as much of limitation). I'm not saying it isn't happening, it's just much harder than having a community where everyone is within a few thousand miles of each other.
Come on people, you don't have to validate the RIAA's meddling in our phones.
Most of the rest that came later were worse: sticking pens, no Micro SD, and now: soft screens.
Question 1: Who the hell reuses passwords, and why? Anyone left not using password managers?
I don't trust my password manager to not be broken into without me knowing about it.
If someone breaks into my brain, I'll probably know about it ("Hey, put the rubber hose down! I give, just tell me what password you need!").
The invention of the telegraph and the wide-scale availability to the paying masses through commercial telegraph operators was arguably the first real breakthrough in electronic digital communications, assuming you consider the "on/off" of Morse-code-type telegraphy to be digital, which I do.
Smoke signals, semaphore signals, and other forms of non-electronic long-distance communication are also typically digital. As to whether they were "available to the masses" or not, that varies.
Writing, whether using alphabets or pictographs, is arguably a form of digital communications. Speaking in words or groups of sub-word sounds (phonemes and syllables) that have distinct meanings is arguably digital (as opposed to analog), as long as the dictionary size is, for all practical purposes limited. This is the case for all conventional spoken and written human languages that I am aware of.
So, in that sense, we humans have been using digital forms of communication since, well, ever since we started talking to each other, which likely pre-dates humanity itself.
Interwebinaut Day would be more fitting.
The Internet was arguably invented either in 1969 or when IPv4 rolled out in the early 1980s, depending on whether you "count" the pre-IPv4 Internet as "the Internet" or not.
And a realtime clock too.
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards. -- Aldous Huxley
