    Default Courts Legalize ISP Website Censorship



    And I thought throttling was illegal.

    Now you are only allowed to read what internet service providers (ISPs) want you to. Am I exaggerating? PLEASE tell me I'm exaggerating!

    Wait, so you're telling me capitalism ****s over the little guy and gives daily hand jobs to the Corporations? *GASP* Here's a silly thought... Maybe all of those reporters on the leaches of moneymongers telling you that socialism is evil... Are actually spreading propaganda for their own evil agendas for the sake of their own gain.

    To be honest, I am past the point of being able to watch TV and it's still way better where I live than in the US.
    If they try to make the web into a network, all they get from me is a goodbye into the dark-net.
    Mainstream media, be it news, print mags of whatever focus, pro sports, reality TV, or popmusic are so far of my radar, that I can't tell you what is in the top 40s anymore. I can't even tell you, if the top 40s rankings are still a thing.

    When I ever am around people listening to the radio, or watching TV, there are so many dumb, manipulative adds, that I just leave or ask for it to be turned of. They have this feature now, on even the state sponsored TV, which has zero adds during movies and such at least, that they turn up the sound to 1.5 times as loud when adds come on. W/e... Still cant hear it, when the effing TV is off.

    They can't drag me back into this network of adds anymore. I will probably spend the money I have on shit that I actually want and can make use of for the rest of my life...

    The old farts don't even understand what the web is and they still run the world. Thing is, when they kill it, I won't be spending the same money as I do on my super fast fiber connection now. I will just cut it and I won't replace it by throwing money at some inferior alternative. Same goes for my mobile data contract.

    I grew out of TV when I turned four. I spent my childhood reading sci-fi and fantasy.

    Yea...

    I find the idea of that US ISPNs to become like the rulers of olden times so silly, it might work for a whole lot of people, but culturally the powers that be slipped and the next generation will not be conditioned and brought up by add campaigns.
    Its so funny that you hear that people for ex. stopped attributing as much importance to physical beauty. They didn't stop wanting good looking partners, you dummies, they just woke up, opened their eyes and saw that the models and actors are so fake, that they are pretty much drawings on human canvass. That's the limit of the "seductive power of the telly". You can only bend it to a point, but once you bend it till it breaks, you can't just try to bend it even further, because that gets you nowhere.

    Stay frosty.
