EU court blames website for hosting offensive comments in ‘shock’ decision

Free speech activists were dismayed after the European Court of Human Rights said that the Estonian justice system was right to fine a news website for user-generated hate comments under an article. The decision is feared to have wide repercussions.

“Despite warnings from groups defending vulnerable internet users, as well as from large media companies, the court has dramatically shifted the internet away from the free expression and privacy protections that created the internet as we know it,” said Peter Micek, the senior policy counsel of Access, an online human rights group.

The editors promote hate in there papers its most likely to promote that they are doing something about what they promote. So sheeple think they are being good guys restricting angry voices not on the fluoride. These people are media mind manipulators posting shill hate spew in there own paper for whore attention. They play a good game and fool many but times are a changing and people call bs on bs on bs. Nothing is sacred except true love.

Anonymous protests Bill C-51.

Quote:The online hacker group Anonymous has claimed responsibility for a cyberattack on federal government websites, in protest against the recent passing of the government's anti-terror Bill C-51.

"Today, Anons around the world took a stand for your rights," the group wrote Wednesday afternoon in an online post

"Do we trade our privacy for security? Do we bow down and obey what has become totalitarian rule? Don't fool [yourselves]. The Harper regime does not listen to the people, it acts only in [its] best interests."


The first question (Do we trade our privacy for security?) seems redundant due to the last sentence in that statement. Since we have absolutely no sway, no power any way. dunno.gif

Knowing how things work, there is no privacy for security tradeoff, at least not with the internet under present conditions.
Serious modifications would have to be made for that to even be possible. Anything else is illusion.
