    Yesterday (Feb 1st), two of the largest internet providers in the Netherlands were ordered by the Dutch government, under pressure from the organisation called BREIN (brain), to block access to all Pirate Bay websites. They cited the reason as being because "many users had downloaded music or movies in the last month, and we assume that if they download them, they uploaded them too, so that`s illegal".

    Apparently that`s all the reasoning they needed. Also, after the initial few domains belonging to Pirate Bay were blocked, BREIN faxed the providers a longer list of domains that they had to block too, and didn`t even need to first go through the legal system.

    It`s started.

    Probably not the same, but you can`t share Pirate Bay links on Facebook anymore.
    At least last week that I tried, I don`t know if they`re still blocked.

    Time to go back to sneaker netting and private ftp servers for invitation only file sharing.

    We`re not citizens while on the internet or off it. We are a group of feeble minded drones, waiting to be outwitted and controlled. A new means of control where there is no need for secrecy.

    Even with the blocked ISP, you can still access it. I`ll be using it for a lot more than the piratebay. Too bad it had to come this far.

    @Ginerio: Tor is ok for individual songs, but the decreased speed you have to put up with is unsuitable for large files like movies or whole albums. I do like Tor, it just has limitations.

    Just wanna throw up a link to SMBC, because I love these comics and the creator never seems to tag his own work.

    Batmanners, they threw it on the ground and then picked it up while pulling a vial of red liquid out of their belt and then tossing it on the ground? That would never work.....

    Couldn`t have put it better. Funny how there is such a push for online bullying to be just as bad as face-to-face, yet our privacy, rights, and freedoms seem to only matter when you`re not in front of a monitor.
