When Internet Service Providers block access to sites, they often block more than intended, depriving us of access to legal content. But Parliament won’t ensure that illegal content is removed at the source, rather than clumsily blocked by ISPs. #rejected
@Amikke @echo_pbreyer Most sysadmins, server operators, hosters and human beings disapprove of that kind of content and would delete it asap. Also they would most likely terminate those accounts.

The rest are criminals and should be investigated, observed and charged by using old fashioned police work. I am pretty sure that it's also illegal in Somalia.
@HackerJoe @echo_pbreyer oh yeah, investigating and observing criminals on the internet is a very successful endeavor, that’s why The Pirate Bay is happily chugging along after nearly 20 years of service, to much government and lobbyists annoyance.
You overestimate how successful the law enforcement is against people they can’t spy on every day. All it takes is one country that a) doesn’t have the means of enacting international takedowns, b) doesn’t cooperate on international takedowns, c) disagrees with our values or d) simply doesn’t give a fuck, and the whole system becomes completely helpless without an ability to block offending content.
