The try for another notch on the Illuminati belt - The suppression of Usenet


warofillusio ns.wordpress.com

Comcast has become the latest ISP to shut down access to Usenet newsgroups as part of a voluntary agreement to try and fight child porn online. Users of the ISP giant found themselves unable to access Comcast’s newsgroups over the weekend, and the company has posted a notice on its web site saying that its newsgroup service has been discontinued.

Comcast, along with 17 other cable providers across the US, first announced that it would no longer offer Usenet access to subscribers in July of this year. The voluntary measures were part of an agreement among the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), and the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) in order to take part in an “industry-wide attack on child pornography.”

Spread around quick to everywhere. Today's October 1st!


Usenet is extremely important to the free flow of information. This article needs gigantic attention in proportion to its quality content and overall importance. It is way more important than some glowing pirates. Pass around everywhere please. Today is now October 1st!

Buddy remember yahoo user rooms?
Weren't they fun?
Guess why they took them away?
Because of filthy freaking pedo's!
Instead of the cops going out and catching the filthy animals.
They think its better to cut things off for normal people.
You see, its the people running things.

They might as well cut off the entire internet. Besides, there are a lot of ways to circumvent this restriction, anyway.

Why is it that whenever someone talks about the latest police state type card or legislation planned the most asked question is how do we avoid it........instead of how best can we nonviolently send the message not to go along with it? These guys LOVE it when people run from them and scream out in pain. They hate exposure. Simple formula. Only thing that needs to be worked out is how to expose.

I hate having only a one-line post, but it's a very appropriate one line: Save the Internet.

Okay, I give up...Second line: I've just used the Contact-Congress options at the linked website.

Unfortunately, most people will agree to this. To the vast majority of internet users, the internet is social networking sites, their web-based mail, the big eCommerce sites and maybe a bit of porn. The rest is just unimportant or 'geeky'.

Coupled with paedoscares (real or not), the majority of 'net users don't really care if Usenet vanishes or ever existed at all. Personally, I'd rather not see it go (and it reminds me of the Pastor Niemöller poem) but that's kind of the dirty underbelly of democracy.
