If you can use "old.reddit.com" for navigating with tno Javascript, that is great news.

They have been blocking Tor as of late, which renders it a bit useless to me.

Doubt it will pass, but if so, could be the end of the internet for all practical purposes.  Ends the ability for any small shop to exist, skyrocketing internet fees, and banishing people by the millions with no recourse, for posting something as simple as a meme, and destroy any last hope of free speech on the open net.

So it has a good chance at passing?    I don't know anymore.

Might destroying the viability of the Internet actually be the *best* thing that could happen, at this point? 

Who says you can't put Pandora's box back once you open it.

And... 

You know *we'll* still figure out how to do it. It'll just go back to like 1985-1989 - when only really smart people could get online and it was HARD to find the first few sites so that you could get good enough to find the rest of them. 

Online communication was better when we flew WAY under the radar of mainstream society.

Sure, there will still be those of us who work around it, but i do think that easy and open communication among the masses has improved a lot of peoples lives.  And i agree here late its been doing harm due to the infiltration of agendas, but the concept of free-information is a liberating concept for all.

For one I am not suffering. It looks like a mainly US problem. Selfish-me.


For what I understand, the proposal is not viable.

True, but didnt the UK adopt something similar to the DMCA after we jumped in that hole?

Any more, what effects one, trickles down to everyone in some way.

I think we had a DCMA equivalent in my country earlier than you.

In fact I sent a lot of DCMA notices to US companies myself in the day. Somebody I had authorized to distribute material in my name over third parties forgot to take it down from the third party websites once the licenses expired.


In that sense the DCMA mechanism is not bad because it allows neutral third parties to host content without being sued into oblivion for this sort of missunderstandings, while allowing copyright holders to police for illegal copies without much drama.

Ah so we copied you.. same concept tho.. once one government takes some rights, others say 'hey, that is a great idea "

 

and sure the *concept* of protecting rights is good, just the draconian implementation that only benefits the giants, and punishes the small guy, and consumer, not so much.

That depends ... does it speak XML? It has been said that XML is like violence: if it doesn't work, you're not using enough of it.

In my world APIs are incoming only.  Needs some sort of broker between them. Sure they exist, but they cost $ and they are expecting magic.

It's so cute that Yahoo still thinks it exists.

Yahoo is a great ping test to check that name resolution is working and to tracert hops. 

I hope they never go away. They're the first domain I always go for when I'm testing things of this nature.

They have a terrible spam blacklist policy. And some other sites actually still use them as an email service provider. I went round and round with them a few times. A friend suggested contacting several Yahoo! users and asking them to whitelist my domain. I don't know if that helped or if my request magically made it to someone, but the problem seems to have resolved....for now. *knocks on wood* Ridiculous!

I don't know how or why but my mother's browser start page is yahoo.  She likes it, and isn't going to change.  She likes the news stories on the main page.

I know a few people that use yahoo as their email.
