  • Let me rephrase that one: "It is not funny to make prossecutions of this nature as they can cause serious disruption in social networking, communication in general and the freedom of thought and speech... because they transport regular human communication away from logic and towards making thinking a crime. Where a complaint is made towards the police, they will sure ignore the logic and evidence of human nature. In itself, this proves that current anti-terror strategies are bluntly repetitions of the stuff, Germany did during WW2." My 2 cents: we should be careful not to criminalize the wrong people for the wrongest reasons. But this is just me thinking... probably getting arrested because I'm like a MAC - I think different! ;)

  • Erm.... question: if all this terror-crime-stuff keeps bugging me while I browse the internet, isn't that menacing me? If I am intimidated by police-arrested-yet-another-person reports, doesn't that mean I am in danger to be a victim according to that same act? GREAT - this thing bites itself in the tail! Come and arrest me, so I can sue your ass for even harassing me without any reason! I feel mobbed, forced, under surveillance and generally not-able-to-think-and-live-free-anymore. Anti-Terror squad, go look somewhere else for your enemy... it's not here!

  • This whole thing is to train us in the art of doublt-think, the powers that be are scared of the new media of the internet so they have to find some way of scaring us into submission. The net is the biggest threat to power since the invention of printing and think of the power that had on the 17th century. This is about keeping the minions in their place, not security.
