It just occurred to me but what if this spawns the development of heavy stream compressing technologies and they render such caps useless? I know compression is already widely deployed throughout the infra structure but would that be possible?
This has been going for a while already. The last crypto wars is already over 20 years old. So let's just ask these morons one question: after several decades of improving encryption mechanisms, how has criminality evolved? Watch their reaction as the cognitive dissonance kick in.
So the evidence against the police was deleted or tampered with? All the involved are automatically considered guilty. See how fast things will change and cameras will work. Sure it's a bit overboard but in any case law enforcement should be held to much higher standards because they have a ton of power over the citizenry. If you don't keep them in a tight grip they WILL abuse that power.
Being in the pocket of the DNC doesn't mean Trump doesn't know how to play the press. You don't need money to do it. Just throw some controversy in the air and they'll go for it like dogs after a bone. And seeing this as an outsider I can clearly see how the press is totally pro Clinton and at the same time falls for the "look over there" tactics Trump is employing. I'm not sure if Trump does that naturally even tough he is a clown or if he is actually some sort of genius.
"They went after Trump like rabid dogs."
Much like they did with Obama before he did what the market wanted and bailed out banks and insurance companies?
Really people, what we've been seeing is Mike calling bs on Trump on articles about Trump and calling bs on Clinton on articles about Clinton. Same on Obama. At some points he did compare the polices and stuff (who doesn't remember him comparing Obama and Bush???). What's your point? Why all the hatred?
I'm confused, this blog has called bullshit on Clinton as much as on Trump and even more on the Democrats since they were in power and they were screwing up in some key points this site generally covers. As an outsider I can't honestly understand you people getting mad on Mike punching Trump like there was no tomorrow. He did the same when Clinton screwed up, he did the same when Obama screwed up or failed to live up to his promises.
Re: Complete deregulation would be a disaster for the telcos.
Complete deregulation would be their wet dream. They could just keep buying state laws and maintain their current stronghold. This is a case where regulation IS needed but has been done amazingly wrong.
I think you do need a stenographic part to the press when dealing with hard facts. Ie: some earthquake took place somewhere or the White House issued whatever statement. You don't need to delve on specifics, just make sure it actually happened.
Then there's journalism which is getting the hard facts and dissecting them. Damages expected from the quake and what's the method that generated them, causalities, help lines, how to make yourself useful to the victims (ie: helping in an efficient way). That statement from the White House, what's the context, is there any bullshit on it? Are the figures on it correct, are them exposed in a biased way? Dissect the thing. That's when journalism kicks in and here you can add the outfit own opinions and biases. Not all biases are bad, specially if you know where they are. I keep reading some publications that are very politically biased because knowing the bias their writing offer good insights. It would be better if they clearly stated their positions.
So I think the press can and should both things. How to make this operational is something I couldn't figure out when I reached that conclusion.
That's what struck me. A fraud at the very local level is pretty much possible so I wouldn't be surprised if one or two voting mechanisms (be them physical or electronic) are rigged here and there so it would make sense for small, community elections. Not that this should not be addressed, by all means it should but the things get highly improbable once you have to scale things from a few hundred votes to a few million. And considering even the most staunch critics of Clinton and the Democrats I know were avoiding Trump like the plague, the fact that Trump, without any support from the establishment WON the elections seems to be groundbreaking evidence that THERE WAS NO FRAUD. And if there was it was negligible. Unless anybody here believes that trump had so much power that he could orchestrate fraud in a large scale. No really. The guy is a clown, a sad one but even then a clown.
I could agree with many things that are bein said if Clinton had won but Trump? The establishment just couldn't handle this second 'brexit'.
not from accessing the internet but from reaching your infra-structure. A while back a site I used to visit in the .br domain was hit by large and sustained DDoS attacks. I don't precisely remember which country was sending most of the data but in the follow up news they said they were in the talks with their provider and that it requested a temporary block of an entire country at the backbone level so the site could come back online. Russia if memory serves. Obviously it was an emergency measure and it lasted while they could work out better solutions but at the time they evaluated the options and this was the best course of action.
So, to answer your question: no, it's not a good idea but it will happen.
