Hey, at least you got a reply =)
I'm still waiting for him trying to justify twisting the terminology to suit his needs.
But yes, i agree that he is a bit like Darryl, he wont reply to any of the hard questions.
Those are the best kind of trolls imo =), when they can't even be arsed to read your reply and respond to it people tend to dismiss anything they say after that.
But aye, maybe Mike should create a new usercategory named "Trollslayer" =)
Hang in there sister, we must be strong and fight stupidity wherever it creeps out.
Tbh DH ...
This is awesome, i mean Darryl is obviously a few fries short of a happymeal.
If he's the one chosen to argument for 'the other side' here ... it's gunna be a very very short argument once someone explains to him (real slow like and none of dem scary big words) that he lost the argument.
Just think how many people are now out on the streets that would otherwise have been passive news consumers in their own homes.
Sure, by cutting communications they might have made it a tiny bit harder for the really motivated people to organize big protests, but as it is now they have people on the streets that would never have gone if they could get news and reports in the safety of their own homes.
"That is what the data retention law is about, THEY HAVE TO RETAIN THAT DATA, in plain text, human readable form,
So if you have an account with that ISP, that ISP will have to provide the IP you used at the time, your Name and your Address.
No VPN is going to stop that from occuring."
You seem like you don't fully grasp how a VPN works, think of it as surfing via a proxy server, all the logs from the ISP will show you connected to the VPN - not the target webpage/service/ftp/newsserver/tracker/whatever.
So in plaintext, the ISP will hand over the logs, but the logs will be useless since they will only show you connected to the VPN.
And before you even start, a VPN is a service, not an ISP, so the law does not apply to a VPN.
The logs would not be encrypted to start with, but all the traffic IN the logs would be to the VPN instead of the destination website.
They can fully comply with the law and hand over the useless logs.
So yes, That will work.
In my personal experience Ernie Ball wont last as long, but in Ernie Balls defense though i have to admit that there has been a fair amount of guitarplaying at parties so i might not have been entirely sober when most of those strings broke =).
What you missed here mike is that they're bringing up the debate on the SWIFT agreement again, this - valid or not - is bringing up the sharing of banking data with the US.
Potentially this could wreck a lot of information sharing between the EU and the US.
Most countries see it as an act of war when you kidnap and torture their citizens.
So uuh ... srsly, what the hell are we complaining about really ? due to OUR actions they can justify a war against us, yet we blame THEM.
