Say goodbye to TPB, UK

Cause this totally can't be bypassed in 2 minutes. via a number of methiods. nope. not at all!

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17894176

 

The Pirate Bay must be blocked by UK ISPs, court rules

 

File-sharing site The Pirate Bay must be blocked by UK internet service providers, the High Court has ruled.

 

Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media must all prevent their users from accessing the site.

 

======================

 

This is disturbing. It sets a precedent which will now allow any copyright holders to force ISPs into blocking websites with copyright infringed material on it on demand. Funnily enough I don't even use TPB, I use something better :>

I didn't say that either. Where on earth do you get this stuff from?

Annnnd it's gone.

Virgin Media redirects you here ( http://my.virginmedia.com/site-blocked.html ), and it actually is quite a hard block (ie, opendns doesn't bypass it), but I've got past it a few ways in under 30 minutes ^.^

Your posts -- from some of your earliest posts in this in this thread.

 

"I bet I could find at least two other studies that concluded the exact opposite. I won't because I can't be bothered, and it would prove nothing anyway."? And that "It would prove that two studies concluded one thing and another two concluded the opposite. Nothing of any real value.", "I've already said that it would be pointless to do so, proving only that two studies produced opposing conclusions.".

 

Put those quotes into context (what you replied to), and the way I interpret it as you saying that there's no reason to read any research because for every one result, you can find a counter-result.

 

 

Anyone care to explain how I'm reading him wrong?

I've found that arguments can meander like water around rocks of reason in these parts.

Leave the moderating to the moderators. If you think off-topic:ness is worthy of a moderators attention, then go ahead and report it.

 

Also, it's not a good idea to go after individuals for doing things "everyone", including yourself, have done in the past and will do many times in the future. Many off-topic posts turn a topic into something far more interesting than the original intent.

I was being humourous being that some have complained about topics going offtopic. :D Probably not high brow enough for someone of your intellect but hey-ho!

 

Anyway, your second point pretty much covers my opinion on that too so thank you, I would have put it more succinctly though as people tend to drift off or their mind wanders reading lengthier repli...oh look, there's Voldemort...

I can't wait for Lollipop Chainsaw to come out.

I really like Suda 51 games. Not many people played Shadows of the Damned, but I loved it. I sort of enjoyed No More Heroes, but I got bored doing the side missions to earn enough money so I could play the main storyline and ended up just forgetting about it.

I wonder if companies will ever modernise their business plan.

I think one issue which may have slowed them down quite a bit is that a few people got very rich using the "old system", and being rich means they have power, and having power, they desperately do what they can to cling on to the old system (because it made them rich). (Not exactly a new and exciting theory, as this has happened in many areas of society through history).

Looking at what has happened the past few years, I believe they have taken a few small steps toward realizing that "old system" isn't a 1:1 mapping to "getting flithy rich", and changing their business models can mean "continue to make a massive amount of money". If they don't (continue to) evolve, others who know how to make use of emerging markets may eventually take over. (Necessity being the mother of invention...)

Though my primary concern is that they have been wreaking havoc with our civil liberties; changes which aren't easily undone. It gives you a bad taste in the mouth, doesn't it? You pay for a CD, and you're funding organizations who want to take your civil liberties away under the pretense of "saving the artists".

Then I apologize. Know that I'm not a regular on GD, so I don't know these "internal quibbles" you guys have, nor am I interested in learning about them. So if you make these types of internal "jokes", you should expect that from time to time, someone will comment on them because they don't get the "joke".

By putting your spin on what I said, as you always do.

 

By your apparent belief that human beings are objective analytical entities, able to readily discard opinions and bias, and with the capacity and inclination to plough through reams of research data and identify that which establishes the absolute truth.

 

Come up with as much long-winded pedantry as you like. And if you're happy in your theoretical world then that's fine by me. But don't make the mistake of thinking that it impresses anyone.

Sounds like you're trolling and baiting again too

 

and since you need proof of me not being Dom (I know how you like her so much) check the poker thread

 

hard to be in two places at one time on a PS3 really still that probably won't sate you either
