Beyond that... all you can do is look. Touching... aka: interactions, will be illegal.
..And the majority will probably bend over and accept it because the majority are all complacent.

I agree with that comment.
I just hope that when they make their move to restrict the internet, there are enough dissenting voices to fight them.
My guess is that ATSers will be at the front of the queue!

Great, Everybody line up and pay to get lied to and brainwashed from a narrow single point of view
He has been going on about this for a year now. Do it already or move on. I for one would never pay for the drivel they call news.
We should thank this bigoted retard for voluntarily curbing his misinformation and programming. May more newspapers go the same way.
This is the perfect way for the blogosphere to become the news carriers of the world. As soon as people have to pay to access the articles in online newspapers, they will turn to more workable solutions with more diverse opinions. Murdoch could go down in history as the man who killed off the newspaper!
Both the Government and big corporations have been looking for an excuse to regulate the Internet for years, and I expect them to work together to achieve it. They are both losing their ability to "tell us what we think" and can only maintain their hold through force.
