Thanks To David Cameron’s Draconian Blocking Rules, Tech Sites Have Been Blocked

David_Cameron_officialIt shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that David Cameron’s “save the kids” censorship system turned out to be just another attempt to censor the internet of information.

One victim of censorship is the Norwegian Unix Users’ group website which is now blocked in the UK. To the conspiracy theorist, this would appear like David Cameron despises open source (and if you want to go into full-paranoia mode, maybe there was a lobby by big software to block said sites). Another open source site that was blocked was USENIX, a US-based but international Unix user group.

What’s even worse is that EFF.org is also blocked. Now why a site like the Electronic Frontier Foundation would be blocked makes one wonder. Apparently they hate the fact the EFF defends one’s rights in the digital world against many types of business trolls.

The British can’t reach slashdot.org, linuxtoday.com, blogspot.com, ArsTechnica, openbsd.org, freebsd.org, geekculture.com and even linux.com. Maybe this is due to the discussions on said sites about “free downloading?”

Hopefully these issues get settled and if not, I hope the British bring their complaints directly to David Cameron’s front door. Censorship is an evil, no matter how many times you try to pass it off as “saving the children.” Don’t use children as pawns for your diabolical plans, Politicians!
