Pirate bay switched to magnet links which are more or less impossible for ISP's to block without throwing huge amounts of processing power at examining every file (besides being a more solid way of file distribution). Even if the internet nazi's want to go further in abolishing internet freedom for the sake of commercial gain there is very little they can do about tunnelling to countries where freedom is more of a concept than a buzzword.

Yea I use the magnet links. I do think it's funny that something that we use so freely could one day could possibly be controlled...I mean how else could I look up useless shit at anytime, anywhere..? Its like now I'm looking up equipment for screen printing, if I didn't have the Internet then i would have to search out these items by either going physically from shop to shop, or spend time on phone. I <3 google.

Yes and for the tinfoil hat wearers the gateways to those controls are highly dubious, its hard to argue against controls on things like child pornography but any kind of control opens the doors to further regulation. At one stage the warnings where so strong it would have been easy to believe every second person on the net was a paedophile, how much of that was generated with the aim of eventually regulating the net for commercial interest? Much of the hype now is about 'protecting the artists', but this is coming from an industry that does little to promote art and does all it can to minimise the earnings of those 'artists' for the sake of its own profits.

Agreed.
One the subject of paedophiles, I remember reading somewhere that there was the same presence of paedophiles when I was growing up in the 80s, the difference now is it that seems like there's more in present times because of the amount of media coverage paedophile incidents get, not because there's been an increase in these preprators.
