The mere fact that Youtube is deleting the content is a problem. Burying the content does not solve the problem and worse than that it can cause misinformation and instead of making people avoid the group they will support those poor minorities.
It's even worse that they are willing to completely stomp freedom of speech and other natural rights because of some small group of lunatics. It is unfortunate that there are morons like Castle and Carlin and it's ironic that they are using the same free speech mechanism they fight against to advocate the death of free speech.
It kind of makes sense to regulate them as utilities. You would pay a small fee dependent on the size of your pipe and then a very, tiny, little price for the data transferred. The cost of each Mb is negligible so in the end they would get much less, specially from the facebook/e-mail only customers.
Want to see them flip over in panic? Threaten to regulate them as utilities if they want to keep up with the data caps shenanigans.
One the one hand, does anybody that uses Facebook really expect privacy?
I think to a degree we should expect some privacy depending on the settings but really, you wouldn't post your schedules and life details on a sign on a public street but when you add "on the Internet" suddenly people throw common sense out of the window.
Facebook is just one of the privacy problems out there.
So basically cable subscribers are paying for the privilege of watching advertisement and half-baked content. Even if they use their ISPs position it's hardly going to help: with their bloated costs it's much cheaper to set up a VPN via https to thwart any attempt of throttling and keep on Netflixing or torrenting.
They are just increasing the poison dose being injected in their veins.
Even taking into account 9/11 I have yet to see a more aggressive reaction to some high profile crime. And we are talking about some petty street criminals here. As for the terrorism crew I refuse to brand them terrorists. They are just stupid criminals.
The NSA fanboys in the Government won't change opinions unless some of their friends suffer real damage from the hands of the secret services due to surveillance. A misinterpreted call, ambiguous metadata and a shot to the head. They believe they are immune to those things.
Eventually there will be leakage. It is good because it shines light into shady behavior and at the same time it may be bad with all the surveillance we are seeing. That's personal data leaking into hands that may not be friendly.
Which means no punishment whatsoever. Even if it's glaring like this you only have to throw your arms in the air and claim honest mistake.
Maybe we should start issuing takedown notices on behalf of some copyright dork targeting the MAFIAA themselves and their services. If we say it's good faith and that even if we don't own the copyrights we feel it is our duty to help the copyright holders themselves...
He's an idiot really. By his logic we should let all police abuse go because, really, it's just a few thousand people and deaths in 300 million (or whatever the US population is now). See, moron's logic.
Probably because TD is more focused on making piracy and or copyright infringement redundant or useless by offering better options, rather than playing a completely pointless and futile game of whack-a-pirate.
