But in the overall scheme of things: Are you enjoying your access to Monthy Python movies? And are you enjoying your Internet Access without
Internet "Freedom" in the Western World is debatable.
Recently we have a thread about Australia installing content censors.
There is another one now about UK police using the internet to hack into home computers.
There was the one about Comcast limiting bandwith.
There are many instances of internet ISP's being blocked without the user's consent because the host deems something "pornographic."
There are even more with people being arrested or fined for unwittingle accessing copywrited material.
I wouldn't call it completely free, by a long shot.
BTW--China is not an internet black hole, I have family members living there. They have a heavily censored internet, but it is there.
