    Wrong wrong wrong...

    It should say.

    Everyone is evil, they either want to kill you or do nasty things to you. If you don't belive us read the Daily Flail.

    MySpace, Facebook and Twitter will kill you (see above)

    Don't download stuff you shouldn't, such as MP3's & films because the industry will loose £50,000 a year you would normal spend on such items.

    I find it extremely hard to believe that someone is "thinking of the children" and actually making sense.

    Had to double check the date, then check that this was not an article from the Onion. Still I can see someone being out of a job soon for having the cheek to not claim that the internet and everyone using it must be banned/blocked/blacklisted/monitored and kept in a database to be lost in public via a USB stick or laptop

    It's been shown time and time again that every song you download loses the company nothing, but it loses the artist hundreds of thousands of pounds, funds terrorism, turns you into a spotty nerd with glasses who nobody likes, causes impotence, and kills kittens. Think of the children you vermin.

    I'm glad that someone has finally stepped up to take the parental role that has been sadly lacking world-wide of late. And about time, too!

    Unfortunately, it's the ITU and not the actual parents ...
