High Court Blocking Torrent sites

#3
It's affected another 3 sites in total, H33t amongst another.

The forums seems to have debated the *cough* proxy alternative..

Quite right too; you'd all be up in arms if someone was stealing things that belonged to you, or scamming the benefits system.

The people who run the copyright-infringement sites, and the ones who use them, are nothing but a bunch of thieving cnuts.

I use a vpn to bypass these pointless blocks.

And changing the subject totally, Anonymouse has some interesting properties.

Anonymouse.org

Not that I'd dream of using it to bypass the block on Kickass torrents...

All the people who use these theft-sites, fair enough. Just remember never to have the hypocritical audacity to whine about shoplifters, crooks, benefit cheats, tax-dodgers, hand-in-the-till politicians, and the rest of society's tawdry panoply of grotty advantage-takers in the future.

My, what a sanctimonious **** are you!

But they do, the benefits systems and the NHS have been handing over the benefits of my taxes and my National Insurance payments to free-loaders and fraudsters for decades; the country has been reduced to thrid-world penury. Haven't you noticed? You'd hope the police would deal with such problems, but the Police and Trading Standards are too busy chasing the purveyors of pirate goods and dodgy DVDs for the benefit of the copyright holders.

So that's tough.

Right, so you make your protest by joining in the free-for-all with the rest of them, eh?

Is this you?

No, certainly not.

I pay taxes to finance a professional Police force who, in the event of civil disorder, I will expect to stride forward purposefully with pump-action shotguns, CS gas, water cannon and batons to disperse rioters and deal out summary justice to looters.

It didn't ******* happen like that, did it? So what should I do?

Run out on the street with a pick helve and a 12-bore? Give them a stern telling off?

I'll STFU and do nothing

It's the job of the police. The police can't be arsed to do their job and there's a feeding frenzy when shitehawks realize they can get away with it scot-free.

You get on your soap-box, mate, and give them a good talking to.
IMHO, the police should be policing it; you'll just look a twat.

No, just a bit sick of having my work stolen by thieving cnuts who then claim some sort of right of free speech or exchange of ideas to justify their criminality and sheer pikiness.
You mean it's YOU that makes all those Scandinavian and Russian porn sites ....... that I've heard so much about?

Serious mode on for a second.

Piracy can be a problem. Personally, I don't download anything recent via torrents. I think the last thing I downloaded was the Andromeda Strain circa 1971. Piracy I grant you, but somehow I don't see that's going to be a serious financial loss to the makers as the film's 40 years old. Not ideal, but that's how I square my conscience.

Serious mode off...
