Re: Slow learners

I have no problem with an advertiser paying for me to access content so banning a free internet is impractical in real life.

It would just be a tax to use the internet. So to use a search engine I have to have an annual subscription to a search engine - I'd prefer to use it for free. You can do advertising without privacy implications, free newspapers in big cities do it.

"The inetrnet took a tragically awful wrong turn in permitting the "free use" to arise in the first place."

What a load ballcocks.
