EU wants users to police the net

Written by Nick Farell


Grass up terror sites and your mum

The EU wants Internet users to grass up any web content they believe might incite terrorism, under new counter-terrorism proposals put forward in Europe.

The ‘flagging’ mechanism is one of a number of initiatives proposed by a group of European Government officials participating in the ‘Clean IT Project’. The ‘Clean IT Project’, funded by the European Commission’s ‘Prevention of and Fight against Crime Programme’, aims to bring together European Governments and the internet industry to find mutually-agreeable solutions to stop the use of the internet by terrorists.

The working group has now published a draft manifesto of initiatives to put forward to private sector stakeholders for comment. The big idea is that citizens, ISPs, web hosts, search engines and other private sector organisations should more actively participate in the law enforcement process. ISPs will offer users easy to use flagging systems,” the draft plan proposed.

All these complaints/propaganda about Kommies & Diktators being Control Freaks might be All Right Jack but when Joe is uncovered to be a serially lurking Kommie-cum-Diktator within the Democraticos-Capitalios, it is like the desire to send the thieving fuzz to jail and throwing away the key - not even for a moment when The Abandoned Nutter own the minds of its mesmerised. Then it is, “A Change You Cannot Believe In”, and , “It’s Business As Usual”. Wars, Plunders and … Opportunties. Afterall, Control being latently Abandonment, what does it matter who is on top because he is bound to be under sooner if not later, whilst not forgetting that those who are perpetually “On Top” are actually those who are perpetually “Below” - those born with forked-tongue and holding a fork.

oH :cry: This is a great idea. Like all the unmitigated idiots who snuff your processeses via Trend Micro McAfee black flagging.
Years I've been using a process, and 1 day 'Bubba Who' flags it as "Dangerous" & the download site it comes from *CLEANED*.
"Hooweee! Did you see the anti-Apple propaganda that Nick Farrell has on the WWW? Man! He must be a terrorist!"
It is hard enough for smote-ware security sites to block all the rogue exploits in the wild. Why not allow them to flag the backdraft? or Google. Or better, open up an ICANN o' WIPO on their ASP! Put all them weirdo zealots in a GIT HUB.
"Hey Bubba, Clean IT don't like your ugly tit facebook. If you in the USA punch your GITMO asp.. Goodbye."
