Interesting Ironwood. A cause of concern for all who use ( &/or abuse the web). General accepted practice, propagation & distribution of information . . . Is the access a right, a responsibility!

You know what, fuck the internet. All this WWW bullshit is what is messing up the brains on this world. We sit back and wonder why is the world getting so messed up. Half of the shit that goes on is absurd. People see this BS and think its okay to say/do it. Then it goes on one more step.....so on and so on.

Start with the not saving the interenet. Then go from there.

The BS you are unhappy with is not the fault of the internet. Information, like technology or nature, is not in itself the danger, it is how we use it and how we protect ourselves from it's inherent dangers (which are found in all things). Which is a factor based on how we are taught to govern ourselves.

The strongest source of accessible information on important matters, as well as unimportant ones, is what you are so blithe'ly trying to condemn, and I cannot help but whole heartedly dissagree with your assertion.

Like most things, just because some people fear and loathe something, doesn't mean they should have the right to take it from others.

Gotta love it, Restless Mind! I could ( &probably have said) heard those of my generation saying these same things about the telly (TV). Stranger still some of the better programing probaly come from the public broad cast system but we could certainly have put it to better use then today's programming provides.

Or maybe, we are finally being able to see just how fucked up the world already is, which would mean the internet would be providing our first chance acknowledge the problem, the first step in fixing it, which is why this next post below is a problem.

Excerpt: RIAA wants the Internet shut down

Nick Farrell
The Inquirer
Wednesday, November 29, 2006

ONE OF THE lawyers involved in defending cases bought against people by the RIAA claims that if the music industry wins a crucial case, the Internet will have to be switched off.
Speaking on the DefectiveByDesign anti-DRM campaign site, Ray Beckerman said the case of Electro vs. Barker has become very important for the web's future.

Barker was being defended by Beckerman who made a motion to dismiss the case because the RIAA had forgot to provide any acts or dates or times of copyright infringement as the law normally requires.

The RIAA argued that by merely making files available on the Internet Barker was making a copyright infringement.

Beckerman said that it was a shocking argument because if it were accepted by the court it would probably shut down the entire Internet. If you send any file on the Net the RIAA will be allowed to suspect that you are in breach of copyright.

What was more disturbing is that the RIAA called up its mates in Washington to back it up. Apparently the United States Government has put in motions supporting the RIAA.
