One thing that's great about the internet is that it was built and is run by hackers, and hackers tend to be anti-censorship. the gov't and corporations ahve tried repeatedly to do stuff to make certain things illegal. The music companies want it to be ilelgal for you to record TV shows right off of television and some music companies want it to be illegal to listen to music CDs in a public place. It is crazy. But the nice thing is hackers always break down these new technologies that attempt to keep people out.

As long as hackers who don't like gov't control run the internet and build it, the internet will remain free.

Becoming a hacker requires learning lots of skills, from computer languages to electronics and so forth. Those who do so are usually also anti-censorship, and don't too much become politicians. The gov't has its own hackers who work for it, which is fine, but the civilian world has an army of hackers too. Hackers run the internet. As long as they do, the internet should be fine.

it is like that baloney with trying to control the internet porn. There's only god-knows how many different porn sites out there.

Here is how it will go down. It will be a combination of Internet based terrorism, Identity theft, to much spam and child porn gone rampant. They will first need to get the infrastructure of www2 working at full capacity. This will be a fully censored net that requires a thumbscanning keyboard to identify you. Then the general public will agree (after the big terror attack) that the Timothy Mcvae type hacker that brought this terror to them, will need to be under control for our own good.

Then it will be matter of not maintaining the original net until it deteriate to the point that it is useless. You will have no choice but to be fully identified before you can post anything. There will be some high profile cases of peeps put in prison for life under The Patriot Act for posting comments against big brother.

You think the mainstream public was bootlicking after 911? Destroy a major U.S. city, using the Internet for communication and the sheeple will slobber all over the government’s boots.

Its just a matter of time my friends. Home grown terror via the net = www2 with thumbscan to log onto your ISP.

Just my opinion!
