due to the whole piss poor coverage of one of the most disturbing erosions of our privacy I sent the following message to the BBC
are you deliberately making a poor effort at reporting phorm?
so far you have simply spewed out the disinformation served up by phorms PR companies and you seem fixated on the cookie when the real issue is that of the users entire data stream being passed through phorms DPI switches.
Even if you wish to leave the technical side alone, you should make it very prominent that all of your “internet data” passes through their profiling systems regardless of whether you have opted in or out.
You are also ignoring the fact that BT and phorm broke the law in snooping on what is believed to be up to 100,000 people without their knowledge in what is easily the single largest “wiretap” operation. Couple this with how the UK government is spinning a web of lies so they don’t have to do anything and we have a massive story going on that every damn media company *refuses* to do their journalistic duty and report upon it.
Please, sack your tech journo’s cause they have no clue about technology and you as an entity seemingly have no interest in covering one of the greatest erosions of our privacy in the past 10 years.
Hell, I’ll write for you on this subject if you want at least you’d have an informed story for once!
Hopefully they’ll get a clue and stop writing shite, tho I don’t hold much in the way of hope.
Are they really playing human rights violation top trumps?
Seriously, we’re gonna end up right back with serfs (citizens) and nobles (corporate owners) system of governance once again!
This shit gets worse.. Register article.
250,000 requests for comms data in a 9 month period?? fucking hell..
On a side note, who here heard about the bill that bush is trying to get pushed thru that has, buried deep within it, exemption of any guilt for the current administration and thus no chance of being tried for any war crimes committed in their “war on terror” stretching back from sept 11th 2001 all the way to today!
The rate we’re going, we’ll be casting an envious eye on the freedoms enjoyed by the peoples of north korea and the chinese republic!
