WTF......seriously.......I could ALWAYS look up ANY song....find it, play it ....no problems.

I got rid of alot of cds before we moved here just cause we could find hard to find music on youtube.


But NOW.... nope!!

'Not available in your country', copyrightBS, etc....Thats alll I get now.

Not trying to download, just love to listen.

I would PAy [if this is the way its gonna be] to watch hard to find and fringe videos and also ditto for music.

Its about the only things besides ats , in my life that I can enjoy.

bass tards!!

Youtube.....Id pay to bring it back!! Rather than Netfluks

I noticed the change on the free view sites as well. [putlocker, etc] Starting around March.

I miss the good 'ol days when the 'net was a free for all and even classified docs were wide open for the viewing pleasure on gubbermint sites.

'They' are not gonna stop till they take all of it away or charge us for it


Ever notice that when 'restrictions' happen and there is a fee and that the quality gets crappier??

Sigh.... I miss the good ol days of the truly free 'net

/End of rant.

Me too but at least we remember when the net was exiting and a free for all , now it's becoming a sanitised marketing tool or just a way for our Governments to keep tabs on us.

I totally understand what you are saying.

I can see the internet getting to a point where people like me will just ditch it. Learn to live without it. It's not really as fun anymore.

Then there will be the people that will embrace any new technology the corps. will dish out.

We will have like a 2 tier society. But the 'net' will not let us go. Those of us removed from it will always be on the run, expelled from society as the 'system' will not allow us to benefit from it without becoming a part of it.

The machines will eventually devoir the those that embraced them. Leaving only those of us that didnt, left to stop them. At which point.........we pull the plug.

Crap, dont know what happened to me then........erm, yeah, I agree with you.

We all should be cognizant of the changes on the net. I have a policy of NEVER paying for any service on the internet. If we all work together to 'just say no' to fees for services then we can keep things free. It will force news outlets, youtube and others services to find alternative ways to profit than to charge fees.

Ok,... Im game, but What is HOLA?? Not a site thats gonna give me trojans, etc. What type of site, is I guess what I am asking.

I was a research/analyst back in 2000-2004 whose job it was to provide tangible proof of gov. wrongdoing .....at the same time the mandate went out that gov. records had to be put on the net...

For a brief time frame.... ALL records were available
Thats how I found ats. I hooked up with some whistleblowers who met up here to compare notes. Way back when, this site attrackted whistleblowers.

BTW...gave you a star just for your 'Don't Panic' avi.

I agree!
In the uk the bbc makes anyone with a television pay a TV license fee. I've always maintained that if everyone said "We're not paying" they'd give it to us for free because they WANT us to be watching it.

I also never use internet services that require a payment.

Just tried your suggestion.

I assume your meaning to click on this button?



All I see is this.

As you can see, it does not offer me any other country.

ETA: Are you logged in when you change the country setting? I never log in and wonder if that might be the reason?

No it's perfectly safe . it's a browser add on that changes your location as far as sites are concerned so you can access stuff blocked to you , it's a VPN , I use it on youtube for stuff that's blocked to the UK .

The TV License applies if you have any reception equipment capable of receiving a terrestrial broadcast, but one license covers all devices in one house. The license originally only applied to TV sets, but then all sorts of portable TV's came out. But over several decades this has blurred; monitors were always exempt, same with computers. But a TV card for your PC would need licensing. Technically having a device that can view programs from the Internet would also require a license. But then this would apply to smartphones and tablets as well.

yeah smartphones and tablets have to be covered now.... screw the bbc they collect and get all the money but apparently you need to be covered for channels that use adverts for revenue and even channels that you have to subscribe and pay for, what a piss-take also they should change the whole "free-view" crap because its false advertising it should be called "licenced-view"
