New York talks net giants into child pornography crackdown


Have to agree...

So, if indeed the process is by DPI, then this adds to the hop, skip, jump effect by inserting a resounding *FLOP* at the end... can you say bottle-neck? With ISP's already screaming about excessive bandwidth consumption and over staffing to meet regulations and data retention policies, they are adding yet another layer requiring management, processing power, and maintenance. OK, so be it.. this fits in well with Bell's corporate vision ;-). Might as well give Bell a bit more ammo to try and justify.

That being said, I also think that this sends a clear message that these governing bodies are willing to take whatever measures are necessary (even if, as in this case, they are maybe not quite the best alternative) to try to curb this. Kudos.

They will find another way to get around this unfortunately, it is what our world is built on... evolution. How do you think spammers have managed to survive? They followed the genetic history of cockroaches. And, like roaches, will be the only thing alive after the nuclear catastrophe. Legend has it, like roaches, they can live for a week with no head...

Oh... I must go now... big brother says so. He watches me through my screen...
