Or does this suggest that they were offering a copy of the film as a torrent honey pot to see who came looking for it and forgot to delete themselves from the list?

The original paper is light on the countries of origins of the "participants"
"The experiments took place for 1 wk (January 11–18, 2012). Participants were randomly selected based on their User ID"
"such that no text was seen by the researchers. As such, it was consistent with Facebook’s Data Use Policy, to which all users agree prior to creating an account on Facebook, constituting informed consent for this research."
Not sure I would consider that informed consent. Supprised that the ethics comittee at Princeton bought it.

Shocked that "alcohol" is blocked in the BT "light" filtering which I guess will be the default for new customers. Tried to find a local Weatherspoons to take the kids on my phone to find that O2 had "blocked" all access to "alcohol related content" which apparently included the local kid friendly pub. This is getting beyond a joke.
yes I'm concerned about my kids learning their sex education from Porn BUT as a parent I'm doing something about that, not just blocking everything and sticking my head in the sand.
isn't this the fundemental flaw with the modern use of passwords, they are either so complex you don't remember or so easy they are insecure. With so many systems requiring passwords we need some better system. I am fed up with phoning some company that I briefly had dealings with a couple of years ago and hearing the shock when i tell then I have no idea what my password is.
I also worry about using password services, it assumes you completely trust the service that is generating and storing them for you. So is "LastPass" safe to trust my life to? There is a huge pot of cash waiting for someone who can come up with a better solution
Was interested in checking this as we have radiations sources and signage at work. According to the Iaea website this sign is "introduced to SUPPLEMENT the traditional international symbol for radiation" and is actually intended for the inside of equipment with particularly dangerous radioactive sources. The sign would only become visible to someone dismanteling the equipment and about to expose the source (ie someone in a junk yard scrapping /nicking bits from old hosiptal equipment) . It is specifically not intended for "building access doors, transportation packages or containers". In these terms it makes a bit more sense although why red and not yellow?
