It's finally been done. Net neutrality is over. ISPs can now block any website and lock them behind a paywall.
Which got me to thinking:
>big daddy ISP checking my most used sites
>hundreds of hours and traffic on nyaa and exhentai
>tries to charge me monthly for them
We need to start downloading the entirety of exhentai like right now and upload every manga on a safe site like mega.co or something
Or you could just live somewhere that isn't shit.
>implying they wouldn't try Sekai Seifuku
So if one ISP decided to not paywall shit, wouldn't everyone flock to them?
Is this something only americans are having done?
>Why can't people let me discuss topics that aren't related to my board?
Go discuss anime in other threads, nerd.
Is related if it gives the potential to block nyaa and other anime/manga sites.
From what I have heard of how ISPs are in the US, some places people don't really offer much choice on who to choose as their ISP.
Anyone care to explain what this mean for us?
Pretty much, well, until they get pressured to do it as well.
>Implying the ISPs haven't collaborated to monopolize various areas.
I can't choose anything but Comcassed in my county.
ISPs can legally throttle you.
Amerifats want you to pay for using 4chan, nyaa and sadpanda.
If you don't pay you get blocked from those sites.
But it won't happen because OP is a faggot and takes The Guardian serious.
>I have charter
>get letter from them
>boils down to "try not to seed so much when you pirate because you're putting strain on your bandwidth. Don't give a shit if you're stealing just don't cost us money when you do it."
I love you Charter
Oh, ok, I'll use your logic and make talk about Canadian Politics on /ck/ then.
So is this article bullshit or does it not matter anyway because I'm not American?
Is Bongland safe?
Well i don't really care,i live in a 3rd world country,with 3rd world laws with 1st world internet
If you're in Murica you may have leashed internet access soon, especially to shit like putlocker, freetv.com or whatever other obvious pirate shit you do. To be perfectly honest if you just like chinese cartoons it probably won't mean much, a couple of the bigger streaming sites will be in trouble but almost everyone on /a/ downloads unless I'm mistaken.
It seems like every time something like this has come up in the last 5 years, everyone has panicked and said the whole internet is gonna get shutdown, but I never notice anything different happening
Bottom line if for some reason the internet gets shutdown in America I just move, but it won't happen
It is classic Guardian clickbait.
Nothing will happen because ISPs wouldn't survive the shitstorm.
ISPs can throttle or obstruct traffic passing through their tubes. Of course this means they'll abuse this privilege to extort money from places like netflix an hulu.
American freedom guys
The Guardian is The Onion but they're not being satirical. So it's like America's version of The Sun.
Here have a cute image.
For now, but with the way things are going with porn filters and court orders for blocking torrent sites then it won't be long.
>So it's like America's version
The Guardian is british
The Guardian is British too, you dolt.
The Daily Mail is the American version of the Sun.
Most ISPs won't because the best ones care about customer satisfaction and will use "those other mean ol' ISPs throttle you but we'd never do that. We'll give you okay rates too! I love you, don't ever leave me ever."
It's a good business tactic.
It means that a court says that ISPs can throttle traffic for any reason they want. The FCC will probably appeal the decision.
Does that mean asking what kind of tablet to watch anime on is related to this board? No, fuck off.
>Provider tries to bring throttle back
>Whole country is bitching and switching providers
>They take it back
That image isn't cute, it's depressing.
Then why isn't it .uk?
Have another cute image.
Still, I'll be surprised if this manages to change anything significant.
One you start doing shit like this, the opportunity to profit by not doing it/offer ways to get around it is too great.
This. And if any company tries to do it there will be a huge backlash against them.
>HEY CUSTOMER, YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR GOOGLE NOW
Who is stupid enough to do it?
/a/ sounds like they know a lot about the news.
What are the best places to get news from?
Thankfully I don't stream or use the vast majoroty of big sites like that. And Nyaa won't be conspicuous enough to draw their attention, will it?
The Guardian is a newspaper, not a website.
Drudge Report if you're into conservative news.
Real Clear Politics is also good, as they always have articles from either side of the issue.
That's not cute at all, it's tumblr stupidity
>Switching providers to the whole 0 other providers in your area.
You're making the assumption that they're competent enough to pull this off - by the time legislation has been written, new software exists, when a site is blocked by an ISP 10 proxies open up to allow access. You could also just move ISP. Oh yeah and haha, my county is freer than yours.
You mean they'll start off that way then as the model begins to saturate the market they eventually decide it's more money to them to do it and go with the flow.
It'll be the same thing as what's happened with cutting back data allowances on mobile devices (well, here in Australia at least).
>tfw only provider in area worth a shit is Comcast
That is a request so it isn't related and goes on /r/, while this article isn't a request and is related to the anime scene with the implications it can cause.
We are fine and the Guardian is complete and utter sensationalit shit and clickbait disguised as a hipster left wing newspaper.
Its on the same level as the dailymail for having an alarmist adgenda.
Ignore by default.
A vast majority of us don't have a choice in our provider, dingus.
Daily Mail is great, though. Don't talk shit about it.
Best to ask /pol/ that. I think they really like how the Russians report news though.
Sorry I am trying to pretend to be human
Is this cute?
Basically this. Remember how buttmad we got over banks trying to charge us to withdraw money?
Multiply that several times.
/pol/ pls. Dailymail is dogshit.
>using Australia as a bias for economics and business
You could get rich by just never doing what Australia does.
I don't believe it, but America could be worse than I originally thought.
Either way, another provider will eventually expand into your area and take all the customers away by not being shit. It's called capitalism.
I used to go to Adult Swim for Venture Brothers and Robot Chicken. Then they teamed up with the ISPs and made it so you can't watch full episodes without an internet AND television subscription (essentially like giving an all-electric house a gas bill because their appliances can do something that gas appliances traditionally handled). I haven't been back since, and it has been a few years since, so they might have reversed it. But the fact that they tried something like that, makes me suspect they'll do anything for more money.
Russia Today is basically pro-Putin propaganda.
However, if you're a libertarian who hates the American Dem-GOP paradigm, it's the channel for you.
However, you have to remember that it's 100% propaganda and to take everything said on it with a grain of salt.
I don't even have a reaction image but just know that you're a dumb muhfucker. Every single day they have some sensationalist shit about how genes make you like bananas or absorb protein or some bullshit. Them muhfuckas just print shit to sell some paper, fucking shittiest paper in the UK. The woodland vale from fucking ass-end of scotland reports better news.
>Privately owned companies which already charge you a fee for using their servers and system of tubes charging more for specific types of use
>ISPs unlikely to do so (or do so for very long) due to backlash or competition undercutting their price walls forcing them to lower their prices
>No government involvement
>Not representative of a free market economy
u wot m8
>the people actively posting in this thread are the same ones that bitch all the time about off-topic shit
When did America stop being the land of the free, /a/?
My ISP already throttles my connection on a regular basis. It's hilarious because you get to watch Youtube in 144p 5 second chunks but when the adverts run they're in HD and completely instant.
When laws were introduced.
That isn't how net neutrality works...
That would be possible if it wasn't for the completely ridiculous and stupid way our internet tubes are managed. As it is there are a couple of very large media companies running most of America's ISPs and these companies have collaborated under a unique partnership so that they can share ownership of the infrastructure together and crush any small competitors that try to encroach on their territory with lawsuits and bullshit laws they have proposed.
The FCC is hardly innocent itself also, they're full of these same scumbags. Basically we're trusting these pieces of shit to propose rules that they can use to manage themselves.
>When did America stop being the land of the free, /a/?
That's most likely Youtube doing that.
as with all second-hand information.
adblockplus and firefox.
Chrome's adblock doesn't work since google is paying them to not block ads anymore
More like Land of the fee and home of the whopper
Wake UP AMERICA
Because if there's one organization looking out for our rights, it's the freaking FCC.
But even more so with RT. Every sentence is designed to make you think Russia is on the upswing when really it's pretty stagnant.
>another provider will eventually expand into your area
No they won't. The companies have agreements with each other over territory and little guys can't get in. It isn't as simple as setting up a fruit stand on the side of the road, it is a matter of communications infrastructure.
Wont happen in a lot of places. Everything here focuses on being a monopoly, and companies like Comcast will not let smaller guys into their territory through money, bullying, and loopholes in the law. The only choice most of us have is one big shitty provider or the other big shitty provider.
Sure, there's satellite, but it's slow, expensive, and the latency is retarded. Outside of that, there's really no other option.
The only thing in the near future that we know of is Google, but they're only doing major cities, everyone else wont see them for a few years to come. And even then, with the rate Google is going, they'll be just as bad as other providers.
So basically, nothing changes in Scandinavia, right? This only affects Burgerland ISPs?
So, our chinese cartoons and doujins are okay?
>mfw I lived the entirety of the 90's only to watch things go to shit during 9/11
Chrome's adblock works like a dream.
But, I have Chrome and adblock works just fine for me.
Happend decades ago.
Companies control the country and not the people.
People don't fight for themselves anymore.
>another provider will eventually expand into your area
You are incredibly unfamiliar without ISP's work in the states.
1776. Freedom is life's great lie. Once you accept this in your heart, you will know peace.
that only applies to DC
inaccurate headlines, as expected of the guardian
In similar times as these, stagnant is better than, say, decline.
They have government enforced regional monopolies.
I use a script to unblock and mute ads on channels I watch regularly.
Nah, when it happens I can barely load images on other sites, or it'll alternate to 'can't load page/text but will play video in HD, no low res video allowed'. It happens after I download too many large files in a row the night before so I'm expecting a lot of off days this season.
>So, our chinese cartoons and doujins are okay?
No. Most torrenting sites will be blocked or hidden behind a paywall.
Just kidding. Nobody cares about your jap cartoons. You'll probably pay 5 bucks more for Google and Amazon.com, if you're enough of a normalfag to shop online.
with how* fuck I need sleep.
While this is certainly a step in the wrong direction, here are a few points to brighten your day.
>FCC has a history of winning rulings over VZ including 4g throttling and 4g mobile hotspot payment requirements
AKA they can't throttle 4g and can't do shit if you download a mobile hotspot app without paying for their contract to do so because their contract isn't legally binding since they don't actually own the 4g towers.
IIRC there is at least one more court of appeals before this reaches the Supreme court, who would almost certainly strike this down.
Do you want to be the first ISP to tell Facebook that you are charging users to access their site? Enjoy your ensuing court battles over charging people to access a site you don't own. Far different than just charging for internet access as a whole.
The first ISP to implement throttling/paywall is going to lose a large part of their marketshare, as consumers leave and investors pull out. Nobody will want to be the first, as the first will take a large financial hit.
When we declared independence from the Britain.
not for me, it's what made me switch over to firefox recently
Yeah, we'll be fine. The only things that will be hit in the forseeable future are big western movies, big game releases, etc.
Just think of it this way:
Is it making commercial success and money in the US? It's fucked.
Is it making jack shit in the US, like anime and manga? They'll ignore the shit out of it.
Really, it's the entertainment industry that's the problem when dealing with all of this. They're fucking retarded as a general rule.
That's true enough for Moscow, but out here in the boonies of Russia stagnant means living in pretty shitty conditions.
Fuck off with your NN bullshit, I keep seeing this shit all over 4chan. Leave /a/ the fuck alone. Not anime.
This shit will be struck down by the Supreme Court anyway so you have nothing to worry about.
>The companies have agreements with each other over territory
I find it hard to believe that this wouldn't break if they had a guarantee to take the the majority of the competitions' customers very fast. But I guess it's still hard too hard to imagine how awful America is.
Sure, my country is struggling to bring in a fourth major provider but it still often tells the existing three to go fuck themselves and stands up for the consumer.
Then may my soul be restless until the very day I die. I'll sooner take a one way trip to Gensokyo than give up and tell myself "There's no helping it, this is just the way things are."
This, this is why it's harder to find SnK online nowadays. It actually is making money in the US so they want to stop it from being taken for free. Whereas your harem shit or yuru yuri or any of those shows that less than 1% of the western world watch will be absolutely fine.
>Do you want to be the first ISP to tell Facebook that you are charging users to access their site? Enjoy your ensuing court battles over charging people to access a site you don't own. Far different than just charging for internet access as a whole.
This. Shit gets real when you start interrupting someone's gravy train.
Don't worry, you're still free to order your realistic somali cock dildos unhindered.
Charter is so fucking based.
Youtube is just a terrible site now-a-days. They'll cut every single corner they can and not even by a little amount to save that money while making a ton more.
Britain isn't exactly an attractive alternative....
Britain sends fucking cops to your door if you watch the BBC without paying for it.
Don't need a warrant, just kick down your door and take your TV.
I'd take our non-existent porn block and knives over school shootings and being charged to browse sites that are deemed as competition by ISPs.
Currently nothing changes but if you rely on services that are from America or that Americans use it might inadvertently affect you. If for instance Verizon started demanding protection money from netflix, netflix wont pay for that themselves they'll just raise the price of their service which will likely impact you if you use it.
This doesn't apply to anime or piracy in general in the first place though, it only applies to "legal" traffic. ISPs are free to fuck up bittorrent/P2P traffic even if it's legal because there's no way to discern legal from not without physically checking every file
Oi m8, cutlery licences are not to be fucked around with.
Honestly I don't see this happening. Mostly from both a consumer and producer point of view. Do you really think facebook wants a 30% drop in customers simply because they don't want to pay their ISP in order to access the site? hell no facebook wants every single smuck it can get its hands on to come there as often as possible.
Precisely. When I lived with a friend of mine who didn't know how to proxy, I only got warnings for new games he pirated, sometimes music, etc. Not a single fucking thing for anime, even though he watched just as much as I did at the time which was a good amount of currently airing stuff.
They really don't give a fuck if it's not making them money.
Oh, they also only really go after seeders and people uploading the content. These warnings were from him being retarded and not squelching the upload on his torrents.
It's anime related if you favorite anime sites are blocked or extremely slow due to that law.
It isn't hard to imagine. Mmmurica is a bout FREEDOM (for major corporations). And if you do anything to impede, compete, or complain about these MAJOR FREEDOM DEFENDING CORPORATIONS, you are a no good communist-socialist-pinko-terrist-secular-liberal-faggoqueer.
>CR streaming fags need to pay extra
>Oh, they also only really go after seeders and people uploading the content. These warnings were from him being retarded and not squelching the upload on his torrents.
Token downloaders occasionally get fucked over too.
Except none of that is true.
>If the human race goes etinct that means no more hamburgers
>mfw relatives bought home burgers
At this point, Americans would probably riot of they outlaw that.
I knew this time will come, this is why I armed myself with multiple simultaneus and devastating defensive deep HDDs
Hey, guys. I think I might actually like this.
>tfw the guys at your school start walking about with hammers and screwdrivers because they handed their knives in
They would chase each other about the park screaming and throwing their bikes around. Best spectator sport.
As far as I know they reversed it and replaced it with being able to watch Adult Swim live on their website.
It looks more like the corporations running the websites, rather than us, are going to be the ones paying extra.
I don't live in America and I already said this wouldn't fly with the Supreme Court.
Of course nothing will happen, the Guardian just hates capitalism.
>CR shuts down due to not enough funds from simulcasting shows
>most anime sites shut down

God Bless America.

>Companies regulated by the government.
>Regulators are in the pockets of the companies.
>Regulators leave their regulation jobs and become rich working for the companies, bringing with their inside knowledge of loopholes and connections.
Great time to be XDCC master race if they are going to throttle torrents even more. Don't think the government or ISPs even know people still use it.
DID YOU KNOW IF YOU GET A LETTER FROM YOUR ISP FOR PIRATING TOO MUCH, YOU CAN ASK THEM WHY ARE THEY GIVING AWAY YOUR INFORMATION AND TELL EM YOU WILL CHANGE ISP OR CANCEL.
It works almost all the time.
They won't bother you anymore.
I went to a nice middle-class school in a nice area.
The worst that has ever happened within a 10 mile radius of where I live was a guy who got into a fight with his girlfriend and got stabbed in the hand with a potato peeler.
It's not like the USA where the chances of being attacked daily are 100%, even if you live in the nicest areas.
The NSA sure won't know about it, since you just said it.
The anime community sinks underground. Newfags are few and far between. Anime is no longer available to people on tumblr and reddit. Fansubbing explodes like never before. Please let this come to pass.
Very rarely. The government knows that there's only a handful of people that do the ripping, cracking, and uploading, and that getting them is a better use of resources.
Catching some random neckbeard for pirating porn and the latest battlefield isn't one of their concerns.
Though it does happen. Every time is just because they need to make an example of someone.
The same sort of thing happened like in 2012 or 2011 where they said HUR WE GONNA CRAK DOWN ON TORRENTS and nothing happened, now were getting HURR DEY MITE MAKE U PAY FOR SITES TO USE N LEGALLY THROTTLE U!!!
Nothing will happen, it never does.
CR pisses me off, they pretend to be all legal and shit when actually all they do is throw occasional chump change at the anime industry while having terrible subs and four adverts a video or whatever the fuck it is unless you pay extra for... fucking nothing, except more lies about how you're supporting the industry.
PSA, if you want to REALLY support the industry, buy Manga, buy merch, buy some Dvds and blurays. If you aren't doing that, don't bother.
That's why I said token.
The dark times are upon us, brethren.
>/a/ actually turns good again

This, best thing to do is be discreet, don't pirate shit that makes money, use a proxy when possible, and don't seed if you're extra paranoid.

Clearly you don't live near negro hives.
I know, just blowing off steam. I know we've had countless threads about it, but it pisses me off pretty bad.
Why don't we just agree that both the uk and usa are pretty shitty and that the rest of europe and some parts of asia are the only places left to be kind of free?
Yep. I use a good, fast, pay-for proxy because I know my ISP Comcast cracks down on people. Not a single warning, not a single throttle even though my total download in October of last year was over a TB.
Hell, I seed in my private tracker because ratio, still no problem. They seriously do not give a fuck about anime.
And it needs to stay that way.
SOAP and PAPI aren't the same thing as this but they're effectively dead for now. ACTA and TPP is still ongoing and also not related to this.
Clearly you didn't read it when he wrote "...even if you live in the nicest areas..."
I wanted to make fun of America because of this.
But I feel sorry for them now.
It's all Foolz's fault. They're obviously being bribed by the NSA to let them read about our waifu wars and shitposts.
Well, yeah. You need weapons in America because you all get attacked by urban youths every day of the week. Such is life in America.
If I was an American, I'd open carry a rifle to deter any youths that dare accost me, even if I lived in Orange County or some other notably "safe" area.
Bring on the corruption and throttling. Wipe the surface web clean of all the people that have gathered.
I can agree to this, unfortunately. I would not be outside of moving to another EU country if I felt like I could contribute.
It is. Some nutjob with a concealed military grade rifle, some nigger in the backstreet with a knife ready to grab you, stab you and snatch your shit, cops that are allowed to shoot anyone.
Speaking of cops, recently, two cops were acquitted of murdering a homeless man, even though there was the video tape with the cops clearly beating the victim to death and one cop saying he's gonna fuck him up.
USA is a very dangerous country to live in, if you live there, I suggest you take your stuff and move out ASAP, because shit is gonna hit the fan real hard.
Are you implying CR is illegal? They used to be but not anymore. Your money doesn't support the industry if you pay them, but that's because of how the distribution system is set up not them being jewish.
I'm hoping to move to Poland pretty soon.
Being a programmer opens up so many opportunities.
What's worse is people who defend Mangapanda and other sites of the like, at least CR makes translations no matter the quality.
I'm more pissed that it's killing fansubbing.
But /b/ is a containment board. There will be no use for it if such golden age is to come upon 4chan.
So why did we let this happen?
For the people I thought.
>implying /b/ is worse than /v/
why Poland? There's a reason we pollocks all moved to America
This only affects the USA, right? Are we still safe?
I live in the suburbs of Chicago (America's Iraq) and have never been attacked.
That's why I said "kind of" free.
But if there is nothing to contain than what will it become?
>Probably the only "good guys" left in government
>Gets fucked by the courts anyways
lel, fuck this country
Strangely enough, I went on mangafox today and they've taken off their watermark for regular manga pages (on some titles at least) and only left them on for ones that scanlation groups add for crediting their work.
It's actually worse than that one, you have to be 18 to buy plastic cutlery as well.
>it turns back into Anime/Random
Long guns in general accounting for pretty much no deaths per year aside, how would one go about concealing a rifle?
What the fuck am I reading?
CD Projekt Red liked my application and wants to fly me in for a second interview
Verizon must have paid a lot. FCC is going to appeal it though we'll see how it goes. They said they're not going to give up on it
Unfortunately, with these things. The problems of Americans are problems od the world.
>Implying that isn't only the case because shit that goes on in /v/ actually can have an effect on what happens in /a/.
Stick it up your butt.
Surely people this naive don't exist?
Sure you haven't. I totally believe you.
The truth. Just like how Brits can't buy cutlery, Americans get attacked daily by urban youths and the average American gets into at least one gunfight every day after being attacked.
>any place touched by human society
Face it. We are a global community and global economy. The majority of the population will always be at the mercy of the rich and powerful. They may use tricks, shiny toys, gimmicks and propaganda to keep the masses in line, perhaps sometimes letting one or two rise into their ranks to create the illusion of "upward mobility." But there will never be true freedom. Especially now that technology has made it impossible to ever truly be off the grid.
I live in an all-white suburb and I have never been attacked in my 21 years. I don't own guns by choice, but you should still be allowed to. FFS we have a gun board.
Network hard and get loli sex in the next witcher game.
It is true. OH NO WAIT, THERE IS A BIG BLACK MAN COMING IN THE WINDO-... oh... no that's just the cat lady next door.
>Implying the Coast Guard isn't the only "good guys" left in government
Seriously, you guys need to pay respect to the one branch of the military that isn't evil.
I've never gotten any shit from Comcast at all or been throttled, and I don't even use a Proxy. Even that one month where I torrented every single Gundam series up to Gundam 00 S2, along with a bunch of other shit in my backlog and currently airing shows.
The one or two torrents of western stuff I ever get is movies no one cares about anymore anyways.
Sadly I am not that kind of programmer.
I make tools used for things, and in this case those tools would be used to make games.
>military grade rifle
oh wow sure am having a lot of fun with my easily acquirable, post '86, non-NFA licensed, sub $3k, automatic AR lower
Why the hell do guns have an organization dedicated to their survival that is relevant and has lobbying power as opposed to freedom of speech and the fourth and fifth amendments?
>>Probably the only "good guys" left in government
>>Gets fucked by the courts anyways
That's really debatable they've been better recently but they're the ones that allowed stupid mergers like sirius + xm and they specifically excluded cell phone carriers from net neutrality regulations which is why they're free to add data caps and throttle the fuck out of the internet
See >>100258312. He just got attacked by a cat lady pretending to be a black man. Just like Izumi from Gantz.
We need a hero to come up with a replacement to the internet.
i meant network in the newfangled cocktail party sense.
Because the ACLU doesn't defend the 2nd.
Guns are a tangible product, free speech is not. It's easier to lobby for something that you can physically hold.
>implying anyone is willing to lay down a second set of trans-atlantic/pacific cables
AND THE HOME OF THE FREE
Because the organization we already have dedicated to protecting the constitution refuses to defend the second amendment
>Implying the Coast Guard isn't in the pockets of the Dolphin Corporation and the upcoming Porpoise Uprising.
Yeah, they only care about new stuff that makes them money. And even then, you can easily just go to random wi-fi hubs and torrent from there if you really want something new and are really concerned.
Because the 2nd Amendment is just as important as the 1st amendment, and only liberals want to willingly disarm themselves.
The deep web exists.
Maybe someone will think of a chip you put in your brain to access Internet 2 through a series of private satellites. It'd have to be a really rich dude though. Or maybe a bunch of really rich dudes.
How the fuck did they even do that shit anyway? They must be long as fuck. Wizardy, I tell ye.
Along with every other amendment as it seems.
>implying it's going to affect our niche little hobby
If 4chan goes down
/a/, /m/, /jp/ and other Japanese related boards need to form some sort of group.
or we could just revive 7chan (since it's under the radar.)
IS THIS PICTURE REAL?
Because the NRA is an organization by and for manufacturers of firearms and ammunition to protect their bread and butter, masquerading as an organization for enthusiasts and rights defenders.
It will be.
This is the future you chose.
All the FCC has to do is change the classification of internet providers and viola! This means nothing.
Why the FCC was fighting this battle in a way they couldn't win is beyond me.
Uboachan. Worst comes to worst, we delve into the onion.
Deep web is still the Internet, it's just "secret". Tor isn't even anonymous anymore.
How horrid, have you ever used it? Do you know how slow it is?
Did you just call them a PMC?
That is the most insulting thing I have ever heard, there is no way in hell the military is just a glorified PMC.
Except that isnt true.
Non payment of TV lisence is a council matter, not a police one. They will send you a few letters and in the end will send Balifs around.
Balifs can not force entry to a property.
As real as this here.
Is this actually confirmed? I know people on /g/ like to stir shit every so often but I want to know of it's actually compromised. Not like I use it, but I am curious.
Fuck all the regulatory power we've given the executive branch.
That's still within the web, and your connection to it is still controlled and can theoretically be tracked.
I really need to stress that it is only theoretically possible, nobody would go through the trouble unless you were actually doing shit other than looking up porn or buying drugs.
>Data caps on home internet
>Locked down internet, all sites paid, all not accounter for blocked
>This monopoly causes the internet in the US to grind to a stop as all of the services become shit (Facebook starts openly datamining and fucking you over even more, YT becomes ad-infested with shit servers, etc.)
huh, perhaps I should be a bit more careful with Comcast. I downloaded all of Game of Thrones, and Breaking Bad, and zero fucks were given.
Did I just get lucky or something?
It's not like we have a lot of options here.

I have always been amazing at these double standards.
Nothing is truly anonymous, but it would be a pain in the ass for a government agency to find out where TOR traffic originated.
No fucking clue.
Which is why it won't happen again.
Everyone has a price. The Coast Guard could not resist the offer our aquatic mammalian "friends" put on the counter. Plus ample blow(hole) jobs.
I haven't seen anything definitive, but all of the big CP sites sre gone without a trace. Not to mention the Silk Road, which I'm pretty sure everyone already knows about.
Why dont we just buy LAN cables.
> as opposed to freedom of speech and the fourth and fifth amendments?
We do have those.
I know that nothing is truly anonymous, and that if they really wanted to snoop, they could find out. But saying Tor is compromised is different to being able to target and snoop on an individual.
The only thing that has a 21 age in America is drinking. I think that's too high, but there shouldn't even be a maximum age on cutlery, that is just full retard.
We prefer Private Security Contractors.
Both parties are insufferable nannies.
Love how everyone is trying to shit on america because of this. Of course it does all relate back to america because they own everything relevant in the world. Maybe if every other country in the world would stop being 3rd world tier in relevance, just maybe changes could be made.
Nothing of value was lost, etc. And that was down to social engineering from the stories I remember reading last Summer. Not necessarily a weakness with Tor.
I know. Its fucking hilarious.
"Prioritize" does not mean "block" or "charge for."
And while I can totally imagine the cunts at comcast or rcn getting confused and mixing those up, cable isn't your only option if you have a cell tower near enough to get reception. So there is competition from verizon and clearwire and etc.
Whereas in other countries, the jerk in charge personally owns all the private media companies so you're stuck with only one person you're allowed to get your news from.
And anyway, as for the anime, the FCC doesn't like bittorrent or piracy much, remember their primary responsibility is guarding against nipple slips and four-letter words. They're ratings cops. They still occasionally drive vans around looking for gypsy radio stations, I guess, but whatever.
Isn't it different on a state to state level?
Dude, I'll gladly ally with the dolphins if they don't rape me or if they let me get some of that sweet dolphin poon.
If only the British Empire never regressed into a pussified shell of its former self.
It's not our fault Dolphins are so damn sexy, but still it's a pretty open relationship, it's not like we hide it or anything.
>Implying anyone treats you like an adult in America until you are old enough to be getting regular colonoscopies and prostate exams.
The deep web was primarily designed for government and military purposes. The only reason civilians have access to it is for their traffic to become more obscured. Much of the server farms dedicated to it are owned by the US government.
But that isn't really true. They do ask for ID if the knife has stabbing potential, but a generic dinner knife? Not so much.
Being asked for ID is hardly regulation.
I don't know why they even bother, most stabbings (have a relative in Met Police in London) are with screwdrivers and black on black crimes anyway. So nobody gives a fuck.
Obviously because they thought they could win.
Dont samefag your post.
>implying cell tower internet is anywhere remotely close to cable internet
I would have to pay $60 a month
You can do anything at 18 except legally drink alcohol in the US. The alcohol thing is full retard though, yes.
>ISPs can legally throttle you.
As if they don't already do it anyway.
Yes and no, the federal government ties the drinking age to highway money, so if any of the state's don't follow it they lose their funds. This is why big gubmint is a bad thing.
Owning/renting a car is difficult or expensive until you're 25.
You can't stop the dolphin rape train. They are rape and murder crazed sociopaths. Yet they use propaganda like "Shark Week" to deceive the general public, all while luring children into their tanks.
And it's not like it keeps our highschoolers from getting wasted anyways, alcohol isn't nearly controlled enough for that.
Probably just got lucky, or they stopped warning people. It's all automated.
knives and cigarettes can be.
Drinking isn't because the Feds hold tax revenue for highways hostage. The Feds are real fucking dirty.
So wait, Is this thing US only?
Then, Just Move out.
Drinking age is 21 in all 50 states however there is no federal law that requires states to make it 21. States were basically forced to adopt 21 or higher or they would lose federal funding for stuff like highways.
Not really, there are plenty of beater cars you can buy for cheap. Renting a car requires good credit mostly.
I don't even get IDed when I buy beer so I don't get why you're laughing at America in that case. The fact that you even have an age limit about knives is worse than a drinking age.
They should just go to meccico, much more freedom there.
Not him, but it's more than a little plausible. The anons on some of the deep *chans probably have something more detailed to say about this topic.
Dont make baseless accusations
I'm sure if I, like, join an auxiliary during the uprising they'll let me join their new world order with only female dolphins raping me.
The American government discourages us from learning other languages in school in order to prevent us from emigrating to free countries.
More like much more kidnapping
This so hard
It's like those feminist that bitch about sexism in video games, movies and anime now days. Perhaps if you would stop wasting your time bitching and actually go out and do something maybe changes really would be made.
Age of complainers rather than doers. Probably will always be that way though.
Pretty much this, just go get a bum to buy it for you or just know the arab who's family owns all the drug stores to get alcohol.
I'd rather stay in the US than go to Mexico and get beheaded.
>tfw 2 cell phone towers in my small town

Wait, Americans don't learn second languages?
>If only the British Empire never regressed into a pussified shell of its former self.
I dont know about pussified, man. Sure times ahve changed but if a colony says that it wants to be British, then it is fucking British.
Ask Argentina and Spain what happens when you fuck with a colony that wants to be British.
Just don't join a cartel, then you'll be ok.
why should we? We already speak the most important language in the world.
As if it won't be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court. The FCC guy was practically begging for it now that they don't have the legal authority to enforce net neutrality.
And people don't get ID'd when buying knives, because who the fuck is going to buy one. Only adults or black teenagers who want to stab people.
Yeah you do, he's just a dumbass. Our language programs suck though, but it doesn't really matter because the rest of the world teach their kids English.
>When did America stop being the land of the free, /a/?
>land of the free
Comcast is shit, but I don't think they themselves care too much about torrenting if you're not sucking up too much bandwidth.
They now own NBC, so they might give you more trouble if you download stuff owned by NBC.

Sure is anime and manga around here.
We do, that was a troll post.
Don't take this thread too seriously, this thing is a joke in very poor taste.
/a/ is 50% fatland and 50% yurospicsian
or notice the cartels.
or be an incorruptible official.
or say anything bad about the cartels.
They teach second languages in high school and college and there's also a lot of immigrants and descendants of immigrants. A lot of people really don't need them though since most Americans can just stay here and speak english
Prisons are private businesses in the US. They want fresh, new adults to break the law and get incarcerated.
would you pay $5 a month to access nyaa?
Thank God that he invented the American language.
I took Spanish for 8 years from elementary through high school. I can still speak some of it, but not enough to move to Spain or Mexico.
Its just a good deterrant.
I dont want faggot children thinking that they can walk around with a meat cleaver in public for intimidation purposes. Fine, the amount of kids that would actually do this is extremely low and made out to be huge by media like the dailymail but it is nice to know that they cant, even if they wanted to and get in deep shit if they are discovered.
>Fansubbing explodes like never before
Oh yeah just like in the 80´s and 90´s where no gem got unstranslated
>knives are for stabbing people only
city boy detected.
>why should we? We already speak the most important language in the world.
Only in America, you find someone as self-centered as they are.
I'd just use animebyt.es
Or you could make an actual videogame thread instead of this bullshit given that nothing has happened since the sopa and csa and nothing will fucking happen either way, at least not on cumcast
Might as well just stream.
its actually 30% fatland 30% yurospicsian and 40% mexislums
An age limit about knives is a far more sensible thing than an age limit as high as 21 on beer.
And I am saying this as an American, after having been threated by some kid with a knife just the other week.
I made that in reference to black teenagers. In my nice little rural village, knives are for cutting food.
But its true
Name one country that is relevant that doesn't teach their kids English
Hard mode: Not China
Thank god, you had me worried for a second.
Don't you even learn Spanish in school? That surprises me.
I'm going to celebrate this thread with fried coke
It's depressing that something like that isn't outside the realms of being believable.
Actually, I think many Chinese are interested in learning English so they can do business overseas.
The point isn't whether or not they teach kids to learn English.
The point is, if you want to land a great career and have connections, you learn stuff like Chinese, Russian, and Spanish obviously.
English is like the default language for everyone, should they choose to learn it or not.
American schools discourage learning. Period.
Sí, en la escuela, espanol es enseñaba.
Thank you, based British Empire.
And English is fucking easy to learn
That's because it actually exists and was apparently newsworthy.
>Make a giant doughnut with bacon and butter insides.

Coming soon to the Texas State Fair.
Please stop posting in spanish, it's shameful and makes me cringe.
You're welcome, colonist.
Companies control the people AND the country.
>mfw I'm brazilian
It's true though. Any person who knows anything about linguistics or the history of language will tell you that English is the most important language in the world at the moment. Everyone wants to learn it.
Well, shit. So it is.
But I'm British!
This is the only good thing about shitty 3rd world countries, I mean anybody can get drinks and stuff even if you're clearly underage, too bad I don't drink.
Thinking of it, is it goof to watch your animu high?
That's not American though and those are cheetos
>getting mugged, beaten and raped by favela rats
South America is like the 3rd world version of America.
For some reason, I want to try this. I've tried Fried Oreo before, I've tried a "Treatza" that came in Lunchables.
Obscure snacks can be a gamble.
I live in the UK and have personally been asked for ID for plastic disposable cutlery identical to pic related. Idk who I could possibly have hurt with them, they were barely good enough to cut through a sausage.
English is one of the hardest languages to learn, dude.
Is this more American enough?
American here. I'd say about 80% of the skills and dacts I've learned were completely self taught. This place's education system is horrific.
Good thing I'm moving to New Zealand in a couple months I guess.
Where the fuck do you live?
It only applies to DC faggots
I was drinking coke and after finishing it police came and toke it away from me.Latter I learned cans considered dangerous.This is not even joke.
Your bait is weak, try again
Like I said, it's the default language. It's no more important than wanting to learn a specific language for business, which in this case, it's A LOT more important since not many people speak English.
And you can land great businesses, if you have that as a bonus.
If you want to be truly free you have to move to a third-world country and have money.
The Scandinavian nations are the next best thing though.
Its easy to learn badly, hard to learn well.
Thats because even broken english is understandable.
Where were you asked this and who by?
Often I find that Supermarkets are the most prone to being fucking retarded with these rules and IDing for stupid things. This is often because the clerks are dumb as fuck and have no discression and the fact that they are constantly terrified of Mystery Shoppers buying something that might end up resulting in the store getting fined.
Its all about risk management. And supermarkets dont manage it, they try to remove it entirely.
I would start learning Swedish right now if they didn't have bullshit porn laws.
That's a deadly weapon in Prisons
step it up
Uh huh, I totally believe you. You arnt being silly in the slightest.
>The Scandinavian nations are the next best thing though.
Those feminist infested shitholes? No thanks. I like standing up to pee.
>It only applies to the Jews, faggots
inmates come up with some amazing ways to hurt one another using common household items
Languages aren't harder or easier to learn, it all depends on how exposed you are to it and which languages you already know.
English is "easy" to learn because you can even stay home on the internet and be exposed to thousands of English speakers instantly. English is everywhere, in movies, in videogames, all that.
Japanese is actually easier to learn than many other languages for the same reasons.
They can fashion toothbrushes into shanks in prison, fuck knows what else they can do.
The absolute best.
>The Scandinavian nations are the next best thing though.
Yeh, the next best thing if you want sky high cost of living, its cold all the fucking time and the people generally dislike you for not being scandinavian.
well of course you don't have to worry about first world problems if you're fucking DEAD
This is bullshit as well by the way. You have no obligation to pay your TV license whatsoever.
Sweden bans loli (but apparently doesn't enforce it) but what about Norway/Denmark/Finland? I never hear anything bad about them.
Only Sweden. Norway and Denmark aren't quite the same.
Nobody gives a fuck about Iceland or Aland.
looks like cum
You could have prevented this.
I just won't live in USA
Anyway, only normals and casuals care about those websites
The grammar and pronunciation is full of inconsistencies, but at least it's only got 26 characters.
I'll take feminists over jews any day of the week.
Most countries ban loli and don't enforce it. I don't think I've ever seen anyone, excluding New Zealand and Australia busted for just having loli alone. Loli and actual CP, yeah, they'll add the loli to make the charges worse. But it always seems to me that laws that ban loli are there to prevent people from abusing loopholes by claiming actual CP is animated, or whatever.
Literally a big boat with a cable roll in the back. It's actually really interesting to read about the various trans-atlantic cables since the first one was laid to transport telegraph signals.
Go eat a dick [FFF] you fucking cunts
>but at least it's only got 26 characters.
Spelling is also full of inconsistencies, so you effectively have to learn a few hundred different sound combinations and memorize their usage.
If you dont watch TV, then no you dont.
If you do, and you dont have a license you can possibly hide from it indefinately. Depends if the vans they use to check signals pick you up. And then you will have civil action taken against you until balifs.
I personally didnt mind my TV license as I really like the BBC and its programes and doumentaries. However recently after how the BBC squanders all the cash it receives came to light I have been less impressed.
Anyways, its just one tax. We dodge many that other countries have in place.
I imagine if I lived in the US, all the money I pay for my TV license would go into tipping in resturants and for services. So glad we dont have that.
But how the fuck does it have so much wiring? And what's to stop some fucknut whale or shark from biting it.
>sky high cost of living
And sky high quality of life. My experience with "high cost of living" places is that jobs pay more and living modestly pays off more as a result. As opposed to "low cost of living" areas where jobs pay like shit and you have to live modestly out of necessity as a result.
That's cheese nigga.
>tfw Going outside and see No Blacks, Jews, Muslims, Feminists.
>White people everywhere
And some gypsy which I could just stab to death and get away because no body gives a fuck about gypsies.
>I imagine if I lived in the US, all the money I pay for my TV license would go into tipping in resturants and for services. So glad we dont have that.
Apart from in London, where gratuity is pretty much expected.
Tipping for no reason other than good service is stupid anyway.
brb, tipping my airline pilot or he'll crash into the sea
Stop making me hungry.
You say this whilst places like Denmark and Norway have been hit really fucking hard by the financial crisis and living costs are astronomical.
Its a similar situation in Australia aswell.
The places right now that balance out quality of life with general affordability and job prospects are Canada, UK and Germany.
Yeah, but you still live in Hungary. That's nothing to boast about.
That's false though anon. They actually can't do anything, there was an uproar about it years ago and it turns out all the shit surrounding it was just the people that profit from the TV license trying to bully and mislead. If somebody comes to your door attempting to extort money out of you for it you are well within your right to tell them to jump under a bus.
lol no, dirty mongolian blood are circulating deep inside you
I'd rather eat.
>wanting to deal with gypsies
say good bye to your metal and children
Yeah but if you see something written and know all the letters of the alphabet, you can at least attempt to pronounce it. Kanji for instance you can see a symbol and have no fucking clue what it means, how to pronounce it or how to spell it.
But is your internet good and legal?
>Apart from in London, where gratuity is pretty much expected.
Londoner here. I have never once tipped out of obligation nor have ever experienced it being demanded/expected of me.
"Oh hey we're 'prioritizing' our shit services and deprioritzing all the good ones unless you buy our new "Unlimited Internet" bundle which is 100 GB of a data a month for only $150/per what a great deal!"
And I was under the impression Hungary was a gypsy country.
Is that the fast food place for people who hate gays? I'm learning about american culture.
I don't live there, but when this happened, I was in Hornsea. I don't remember the name of the place, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a supermarket.
I only ever hear bad things about these countries.
The only bad things I hear about this country were in the past.
Yes, of course you are. They are balifs. They have no power to demand entry. However, what they do have is the ability to enter if the premesis is insecure and can stay in the property as long as they like if let in by the occupants.
For this they need a high-court warrent though.
...you obviously haven't studied anywhere else. As someone who has studied in four different countries, I'm telling you that America has the best educational system I've ever seen.
I was in front of prime ministers house though.
Quite a few places I've eaten out in Soho, Shoreditch, Brixton Market etc. have asked for gratuity when paying (usually comes when paying by card, I throw on 10% because service in places I eat at in London are generally good).
The staff don't personally ask, but it comes up on the card machine, or it gets tacked on to your bill by default at some places in Central.
Dude China has intense English language schooling now. They get taught English from grade 1 now.
Tor was funded by the US and Swedish Government, might still be.
Are any of you from Uruguay?
I hear the president is a bro there and you can even smoke weed freely now. Not that I really care about weed.
That's what I'm saying. They aren't bailiffs. They are private employees. It has nothing to do with the government whatsoever, you can't be fined for just owning and using a TV.
Why the fuck were you even there? There's nothing to do apart from go to the Freeport, which died like 15 years ago.
I download shit with with 8-10 Mbs for around 12€ / Month
You don't have to hate gays to eat there, but you certainly want to hate gays afterwards.
>I only ever hear bad things about these countries.
You are on 4chan where nationalism is the only way people can swing their dick around.
Both countries have their bad points and good points. However both on the whole are very safe, and on balance affordable places to live. In my eyes, they are the only two countries that handled the Economic crisis correctly. Probably has a little something to do with the man who was in charge of Canada's national bank and is now in charge of the Bank of England.
He is a clever dude.
Uruguay is best Argentina.
No it really is like that, and it's fucking terrible.
Oh shit. Last I heard they were trying to move away from the English language.
Wow, you can get a fast food meal and make a political statement, so ahead of everyone else.
How is Iceland for jobs?
I'm a big fan of molten sulphur, frozen wastelands and niche languages.
Wouldn't that just effectively kill off any small websites and eventually make an entire 360 that would start killing profit? Aside from like facebook, youtube, and a few online games no one would really ever use anything ever.
>Soho, Shoreditch, Brixton Market
If ANYONE ever expects any tip in places like that, tell them to go fuck themselves.
To be honest, you can't really judge a country until you've spent a significant amount of time there. I'm sure most places in the world would be great to live in, but with sensationalist media highlighting the negatives whenever possible, most people end up with negative stereotypes since all the good and nice things are deemed as boring and not newsworthy.
I will concede that Hanzi/Kanji is much more difficult to learn, but you can also make educated guesses about the meaning and pronounciation of a character based on its constituent radicals (and likewise guess the pronounciation and meaning of a word based on its characters). It's very easy to make spelling errors or to misunderstand words because of their spelling in English, and that's just piled on top of the various other inconsistencies.
English is just a very irregular language, and that makes it hard to fully learn as a second language.
Exactly fucking this.
A sensible and well measured opinion on how baseless nationalism barely reflects a country? On 4chan? Fucking hell.
Well, the food itself doesn't make a political statement, they just use the profits for anti-gay agenda.
Still fucking tasty. I don't even care that I'm being oppressed when I eat there.
>However both on the whole are very safe
Not if you enjoy loli they aren't.
Chicken sandwich with a side of freedom fries and delicious liberal tears as a drink. Best food.
In all seriousness they don't hate gays they're a christian organization and one of their head guys happened to fund a company that lobbies against gay marriage.
There should be no age limit on cutlery. Alcohol can actually fuck with a child's development, that's not just something the MADD extremists made up.
>Comcast sues them
There was this really good small isp where I lived that was really good. Comcast tried to set up home and barely anyone switched to them because they were shit in comparison. Comcast found a way to sue them out of existence.
Well, yeah. Hipster as they are, they're more interesting than North and West London.
about a foot of steel and other materials
A friend of mine lived there, and we were going to the beach, It's a pretty shitty beach, but honestly there's not exactly a lot of options. around there. Could have been Bridlington, actually, I'm not sure, it was a couple years back.
It sits on the bottom of the ocean, sharks and shit can't get it and it'd in a thick iron tube so even if they could they couldn't chew through.
There's like a gajillion different transatlantic cables and they are all thick as fuck and fiberoptics are pretty small.
What's the name of that place, I want to go.
>all those "boycotts" that did jack shit
Feels good being free.
Being stabbed can fuck with a child's development too.
Cant say anything for Canada but the authorities literally give zero fucks about it in the UK.
Too busy going after actual pedophiles and child sex rings and what not.
>defending retarded laws
Its fucking Oshii*
*TL note: Oshii means FUCKING tasty
I don't see how this changes anything. The ISPs always had this power, and if they suddenly become as draconian as the cable companies people will bail on them.
Because the internet is different from cable. Cable TV was never as open and free as the internet, there was never a time when people didn't pay for shitty bundles of channels they didn't want, and had to upgrade service just to get the two or three channels they did want.
If ISPs tried starting this shit now, the first company to do it will lose customers in droves. Once they out themselves as an enemy of free, unrestricted internet they will commit public image suicide.
And a knife can end that development completely.
And stop it with the term
You are just being facetious. The wording of the law does not differentiate between knife types but in any reasonable place, table cutlery is fine to be bought.
Germany's only ever done good things, what are you talking about anon?
>There's like a gajillion different transatlantic cables
That's a lot!
It just gets worse and worse. Brid is like a poverty version of Blackpool and that's saying something. The countryside is glorious though.
You know there isn't a nationwide age limit on cutlery? That picture is taken from one store in a shitty east london estate wear black on black violence is common.
why the fuck would a shark bite it, let alone a whale (wtf)?
And they drop it in the mud at the bottom of the ocean.
West London and Southwest London are the best places.
Though to be fair, you are right. As hipser as they are I guess they can be pretty quirky outside of all the pretentious cunts strutting around. I like Camden myself, has a bit more of a permenant cool factor than Shorditch or Dalston have.
Oh boy, here we go.
Oh, is that where it's from? Makes a lot of sense now. Fucking Londoners.
>Maybe if every other country in the world would stop being 3rd world tier in relevance, just maybe changes could be made.
You think other countries like being irrelevant on a global scale? Small countries just can't compete with the juggernaut that is the USA. Which is why they try to unite and band together, but that brings about a whole other slew of problems. And I wouldn't call the other big players (formerly Russia, upcoming China) irrelevant either. Though, true, Russia got fucked up and China has a long way to go yet.
Giving money to Israel.
Dunno. You should be a big fan of drinking too, though.
yes, like everything that eliminates competition.
No, just fucking black-on-black violence.
To fuck up our communications infrastructure for when they invade the land?
>Funding the Jews
Cable companies are the major ISPs in the US, and usually there aren't any other options because people switched in droves to them when they first started offering internet bundled with cable and phone service or else smaller ISPs got sued to death or bought up. In many places there are not many options, and where there are it's generally amongst multiple big cable company ISPs.
/pol/ please go.
There's not actually a gajillion but there are a lot.
Don't worry, there are still less muslims in yurop than there are nigger ghettos in 'merica.
I'm like 95% sure I've seen it. As far as I know the shit was invented in my state too.
>swedefags brag about being socialist
>everything is just more expensive
good thing i'm a flip. though connection is not as fast than murrica(flip's ISP where the fastest cost $70-$100) but at least they dont give a fuck if you're torrenting.
West and South West always seem boring as fuck to me. Sure, they're nice to live in (sister used to live in Wimbledon and brother lives in Fulham), but they're boring as fuck outside of a nice place to stay, in my opinion.
Not a fan of Camden, personally, but I can see why people like it. Shoreditch will have its time and that will pass, Camden will always have a strong reputation. I love all the quirky shit though and I ignore needlessly pretentious hipsters. They're faggots.
Uruguayan president drives this bad boy.
Best thing to ever came out of Germany.
This, I don't drink but most of my friends have been since like Junior year of highschool. All it takes is an older sibling that doesn't mind buying booze for their brother.
There are, but Muslims have much more influence than blacks since they know to channel their hate outwards, not at each other. Not even racist.
You're not thinking on a large scale. So the small town people can't switch. City people can, and there's a lot more of them.
The ISPs won't all move at the same time, one will go first, and when that happens people will switch en masse (the ones who can anyway). It doesn't matter if the small town people can't switch, they aren't a competitive market anyway, it's the city people who have the ability to choose their provider that the ISPs care about.
I've realized how I'm going to die, and it's going to be from an aneurysm while laughing at streamfags who kept up their oral diarrhea of "but I dun wnt 2 fill my hard drv. downloading annie mays is hard and pointless I just wnt 2 streem." until the end.
What mecha is this?
I moved to a new area, only ISP here was Cox. I downloaded like 500 gigs in a week and they sent me a letter asking me to turn it down a notch. I told them no, because my plan doesn't mention any data caps. They haven't bothered me since or throttled my net.
The reason they are in the news so much isnt because of their high numbers but because of their low numbers. The historical residents blowing everything out of proportion due to not liking their new neighboors.
Take the UK for example. It was and still is a great trading hub and was the centre of the biggest Empire the world has ever seen. However, despite this its population is still 86% White in the last census.
Hey, I'm not defending the places, but I was pretty young then, I couldn't exactly go for a day trip to anywhere worth going without a considerable investment, and some friends wanted to go to the beach.
>yes, like everything that eliminates competition.
This eliminates competition in a different way, everyone would stop using home internet and just browse facebook off their smart phone and stop using other websites except maybe like amazon and wikipedia. ISPs would lose a huge amount of profit (by which I mean users) and as a result so would the websites trying to profit off the damn thing.
I for example casually play a few big name online video games and visit few other semi-popular websites, if I were to be charged extra to do this I would just be like "fuck that" and stop. Chances are a crap ton of people would do the same.
You can't just weed out competition like you would a competitor, the internet functions as a network between people. Kill the health of the network and you're just going to kill your profit as well.
The mecha from Legend of the Blue Wolves
How's that Trinanon treaty treating you?
Possibly a bit dull, yes. But Kingston and Richmond are absolutely lovely places to live and work in.
That's because caps are utterly meaningless and just a blatant shekel grab from the chief jew at your local internet oligopoly.
Don't try pull that shit with me.
Because when you tell me I can't say that, you try to search me, or try to get me to confess, I put a bullet in you.
A new Eva, it'll be introduced in 4.0
>Not living in Ireland
Best country on earth. Wikipedia agrees, faggots.
Yeah, Richmond is nice. My sister was looking at moving there with her husband and I looked at a few houses there with her. Don't know much about Kingston though.
Nice country you guys live in.
Someone else ITT got carded for buying plastic utensils in Britistan. You cannot defend this. It is a lot more retarded law than a drinking age.
And I'm an American who gets shot at by blacks every day.
Britain is cool and all but I enjoy having loli and not getting murdered during broad daylight on a busy street with an axe.
Nobody is going to charge extra to use fecesbook or whatever, that would be completely retarded.
They'd rather take a hint from the mobile carriers and jew the shit out of you for using miniscule amounts of data that isn't going to "preferred" sites like fecesbook, give you 256kbps connections when you try to torrent, or even DDL from something obscure, etc.
Good luck running to mobile for that with their ubiquitous and absurd 5GB/month "unlimited" bullshit.
The reason the FCC got it's ass handed to them was due to how they overstepped their bounds. It's like a mini Patriot Act sort of thing that they wrote which could backfire later down the road. The judge did say that the FCC was in the right, they just have to be legal about it.
I don't get this sentiment of hating on Americans.
Literally every main internet grandfather server is in America. If we get fucked by our ISPs and you give us shit and make us angry, we can fucking take everything away from you just by unplugging them.
So maybe think before poking the bear in the future, little Br/Jap/Britbong whatever the fuck you are ;)
Good christ I couldnt think of anything worse. I'd rather move to Greece, at least its warm there.
You'd prefer to get shot at the cinema?
Kingston is almost as nice as Richmond. Probably the best way of describing it.
Please drown yourself in a bucket of congealed piss and smegma.
Unless you were ironically imitating a stereotypical out of touch murrifat flag waver, in which case just fuck off.
Yes, because I can shoot back.
>stopping kids from knifing eachother
>more retarded then preventing young adults from buying a drink
These are some warped standards here.
Unrelated American anon here. Stop being such an insufferable faggot.
>implying people on /a/ go to the cinema
God that was fucking stupid.
>giant crowd pf people just watching
>cops eventually shop up
>they do literally nothing, but wait for cops that have actual weapons
>The judge did say that the FCC was in the right
Got a source on that?
Shitposting is bannable anon.
Funny, nobody banned you for it yet.
You can have loli. Just dont be a fucking idiot and shout about it for all to see. UK does not give two shits about drawn images. Its too busy going after actual pedos.
And that terrrorist incident was shocking, but no more shocking than trying to run a marathon in Boston and getting your legs blown off.
Is there a video of this? I want to see it.
Selfhating Americans are worse than yuros.
Such a life in Merrica, i like living in a development country
Then why nobody in this thread has been banned
There ya go anon.
Americans who repeatedly regurgitate tired bullshit nationalism are worse than anything else on Earth.
>one person murdered
>no other casualties except the two murders
>Two obvious psychos
>just done something completely unbelivable
>both have knives absolutely everywhere
>one is waving a gun around
>somehow surprised that nobody approached them
They did the right thing by letting the police turn up to deal with them.
You can't kill someone with a plastic dinner knife. However alcohol affects a child's development and can give them problems later in life. I don't like the drinking age since I think it's better to teach kids responsible drinking, but it isn't full retard like Britain's laws are, I can't believe you are defending it.
>cops show up
>have to wait for the actual cops to show up
>not stupid as fuck
Loli's only a problem if you try to physically import it.
And we do have less chances of getting shot to death on the middle of the street.
Nothing against murrica though.
>You can't kill someone with a plastic dinner knife.
Is that a challenge?
I'm gonna ram that shit down your throat while you sleep so you choke to death.
>I don't get this sentiment of hating on Americans.
Possibly might ahve something to do with the
>So maybe think before poking the bear in the future, little Br/Jap/Britbong whatever the fuck you are ;)
Sometimes, you need look no further than your own posts.
My comment had nothing to do with my opinion on any country. You in particupar are being a self absorbed little cunt. That has nothing to do with anyone's nationality.
Under 18s aren't allowed on 4chan.
What kind of third world country is that image from?
What the fuck are you doing here, then?
I sure hope you're trolling. And not taking, you know, this thread serious.
They are actual cops. I don't want all officers to carry firearms, I feel safer the less guns that are around me.
They were actual cops. Just not armed ones.
You'd want your specially trained SWAT teams dealing with people like this in the US rather than just a random street cop, right? Same difference.
>is it goof to watch your animu high
i don't like it
i have a hard time concentrating on the story
and in merica, someone would have shot the sandniggers where they stood.
>1 dude with a gun
>needing an entire swat team
You guys are really out of touch.
So if ISPs can paywall sites, can they stop you from downloading through IRC?
I am a different anon. That guy didn't say anything "butthurt" though, just an opinion. You on the other hand said nothing of value.
In burgerclapistan they'll call in the SWAT for any dumb bullshit.
>murder was premeditated
>no way of stopping it
>nobody was hurt after
>the two were obviously waiting for the polcie to be called, since their true target was killing policemen and then martydom by cop
>the cops with the right equipment turn up and put them down
>nobody else injured
Seemed extremely well handled to me.
The regular police were ordered to not approach them as the two specifically wanted to hurt police.
USA USA USA
In America, the victim would have been able to defend himself from said psycho's.
Unless you live in New York or California
Why so many britbongs in this thread
But if everybody has a gun then everybody can defend themselves against everybody else. If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.
who is this american gril?
Sending in an entire team to deal with one person is standard affair, bro.
A whole team goes in for any related incident like that. Safety and control of the situation in numbers bro.
You are very out of touch with police tactics.
You can't predict that outcome. No more than I can say someone would have fired at them, missed and hit a kid.
>everybody has a gun
So, like nowhere at all on Earth, then?
Clapistanian here, can someone link me to a news article about this axe murder thing?
>nobody was hurt
You could just admit when your country does something shitty like we (Americans) do. We complain about muh freedoms and the NSA all the time.
If there are any sane and rational people out there reading. Where did all this nationalism and racism on 4chan suddenly spring from? I was away from 4chan following 2011. Prior to that, you would get laughed off stage for even attempting to wave around you "Murrican pride". People weren't nationalist, regardless of their location. None of this "europoor" stuff existed.
You don't "send people in" when it's a random guy on a street. You just fucking shoot him.
I was speaking theoretically.
>everyone in America is armed all the time
Do you believe this fallacy?
>defending yourself from getting hit from behind by a car
>and then set upon by two madmen with knives whilst you lay broken and dazed in the street
Yes, Im sure your Concealed weapons license and 9mm Beretta are going to be able to defend against this.
>But if everybody has a gun then everybody can defend themselves against everybody else.
Unless they see you first.
Switzerland and Israel have laws where you're forced to carry guns.
No one wants to make American like that though. It should be a right, not a requirement.
I saw plenty of this bullshit well before 2011, maybe you're just blind.
Brits don't complain, stiff upper lip and all that.
It's bullshit, because we have all sorts of stupid laws put into place becaus enobody is willing to speak up and complain about it.
Throw in sentiments like nothing to hide - nothing to fear and whatever associations lawmakers make so that if you disagree people instantly think you're an offender.
it all started with "clapping" and when moot played "america fuck yeah" across the entire board
It still means your life can be ruined just because some NSA secretary has a stick up his ass.
Nobody as in "nobody else was hurt", you nitpicking cunt.
That armed response was hailed universally as a great armed intervention.
So your argument is irrelevant, because it has no basis in any practical reality for anyone, anywhere.
There is no "nationalism" in this thread. Go back to reddit.
>Switzerland and Israel have laws where you're forced to carry guns.
Yeah that's national service.
>I don't want all officers to carry firearms
What kind of fucked up police do you have that you can't trust them to carry a weapon?
Yeh, all the people in the Boston bombing did really well defending themselves with all their guns against those two terrorists, amirite?
The british kind.
>My country is better than yous
What else do you call this?
There was nationalist stuff everywhere even back was when Bush was president.
Probably lives in Clapistan
Most of the nationalism on 4chan is satire, some people take it seriously because they get on the wrong end of poe's law though, and that's what leads to a lot of shitposting.
/sp/ and /int/ getting more popular basically threw nationalism into overdrive on 4chan.
It's gotten much worse over the last few years. Though another facet to that is 4chan's explosion in size.
Unfortunately, those people make up the majority these days, with something like 60% of the userbase starting in 2011.
I am glad you are not in Law Enforcement.
That's not very likely.
It's more likely you'll be fucked in insidious ways 20 years down the road because thanks to nobody giving a shit about the NSA, stupid crap you did on the internet a decade ago now decides whether you can get a loan, rent an apartment, get hired somewhere, etc because everyone just rolled over and said "durr I got nothing to hide, please bask in my virtuous and proper aura."
I honestly like Britain, Ukip supporters on 4chan are pretty cool people, but it's sad when people defend your worst nanny state laws. I feel for you, hope things get better.
It should be like in Japan where policemen only carry toy guns with a cord.
Its a pretty clear cut difference. After this time away, seeing anyone even attempt to claim allegiance to any one race or nation is pretty fucking stunning and ass-backwards.
It's all in good faith. I don't really dislike Europeans. Also, that shit has been around for ages, but /sp/ and /pol/ might have something to do with the recent surge of it.
That's sensible, because a lot of Murrican cops are complete morons.
Police are there to serve the public, not shoot them. Somewhere down the line you've forgotten all about that. How many times have LAPD members shot unarmed suspects? Do you want me to show you examples?
Do you just not know what that word means or something?
OP's post might be bullshit, but-
Do you play videogames, anon? And have you kept track of SOPA, TPP, etc.? If so, has it taught you nothing on how big companies ease the stupid public into horrible deals?
They wouldn't move straight to blocking. They'd start with throttling and offering "premium" websites (maybe a special section of Amazon or something) under their name packaged with deals. And then, once the consumers got used to that, they'd start continuously testing the waters to see if consumers were willing to tolerate being stripped of more of their freedom by giving them something in return until they got an affirmative answer.
You need these regulations to combat the consumer's addiction to convenience.
Yeah well there's nothing that can really be done about it, with so many idiots. Its the same reason the current population of SRS exists. That place also used to be satire, look what it is now. A hivemind of idiots trying to stop hating by hating.
I see it going both ways but that anon only seemed to be upset that anti-Americanism wasn't as popular anymore.
The ones that dont want to carry them and Police by Consent?
One of the funny facts about British police is that the Brit public can get all fussy and complain about them for various things but when foreigners come here, the first thing they say after having any dealings with them is "I cant believe your police were so nice. In my country I would have gotten the shit kicked out of me, gun pulled on me, treated like shit"
Welcome to modern 4chan.
The funny thing is, in America all the police have guns and I wouldn't trust 90% of them with one.
Shit I was under the impression that this was /a/
Nationalism is definitely new, because the misanthropy has always been the 4chan way.
>most city only have 1-2 major isp and small times that utilize those two's network
90% of the people will be fucked.
Policing by Concent, not Policing by Force.
Its a romantic and old fashioned notion. One that has its problems and one that can lead to a very entitled public but one that is ultimately extremely nice.
Why? What's wrong with nationalism? Can't handle opinions that disagree with you? Not everyone hates their country.
What are you even saying? Im both of those posts.
>Average britbong cop
>Doesn't even have the tools to uphold the law
That billyclub sure will help!
Guess you were wrong, have you tried /r/anime?
What a fucking hippie.
The Met now require their officers to basically ask suspects to fill in a customer satisfaction form these days. I wish I was joking.
>Somewhere down the line you've forgotten all about that.
It happened right around the time that the rest of America became self-serving assholes.
American cops are what happens when you give self-centered, "why should I" conservatives a badge and a gun.
>What's wrong with nationalism? Can't handle opinions that disagree with you? Not everyone hates their country.
I just can't handle blind dicksucking for the sake of a false sense of superiority.
Jesus Christ , go back to reddit.
Because it should really be on the appropriate shitposting boards, >>>/int/ and >>>/sp/.
I miss the days when the only form of mention of where we were from would be things like Anonymous of Sweden's incest stories.
They did have the tools. They had a radio to keep the control room fully updated so when the Armed Police with the tools arrived, it was over in a matter of seconds and done with a surgical accuracy and timing.
Rather than just blunder in gung ho and try and have a pistol shoot out that results in injured and dead police and dead suspects that cant answer for their crimes.
Exercising restraint and then dealing with it with surgical force > all out aggression
And, as much bullshit and stupidity is on their huge boards, Reddit is essentially the new old 4chan.
>UK doesn't care about loli!
That's the same thing that they said about Canada, until some poor sod got arrested for the sex positions image that isn't even considered loli on 90% of the internet.
Im back for a few months now. This isn't the same place I left. Do you know where the sane people went?
Yeah, its kind of annoying to have to use this, but the /jp/ "any community that gets its laugh" saying works for the entire internet, just replace pretending to be idiots with pretending to be nationalists.
Oh, but it's true. There were several polls taken through last year and the number of people who voted in each poll who were around from 2007 and before made up like 10% of the population, 2008-10 about 20% and 11-13 were the other 70%. roughly.
It's not satire since that implies you don't agree with it. You can have an opinion, yet still be self-aware and poke fun at it. You and that anon seem shocked that not everyone on 4chan is American hating liberals. Yet anime is neither liberal nor anti-American, so why would you expect that in the first place?
Indeed it does. Which is a good thing. Public needs to trust its police.
And what is even more funny is when scumbags mistake the police's politeness for beta-ness and try to get in their face/start shit. They get put down fucking hard.
Would rather cut off my dick and delete my collection of SFW cute loli than go to Reddit.
They got jobs/moved to a less shitty website/stopped caring.
Arrested AND convicted, that is.
They're here, they're just being quiet.
There's no point arguing with retards who've made a habit of dismissing any evidence or arguments that contradict them.
Well, that has also happened in America. Rememer poor Chris Handley?
Nothing happening in the UK so far.
I'm not shocked at anything on the internet anymore. And yes I know this thread is not anime, I don't really care to be honest, I'm not a mod I have no power to remove it past reporting which I did.
Really fuck off.
anon pls upload your cute loli folder
>moved to a less shitty website
Like if such thing existed.
Thing is, people who fill in these forms are likely to have a grudge against the police and will rate them low for the sake of being shits.
That puts officers under enquiry, which causes undue amounts of stress towards the officer. If people were more honest when filling them in, it'd be fantastic.
There's one or two good boards left, but I'm not going to name them here.
Nice, now I know this was a troll thread.
(Riot much, buttholes? whee)
It was a good run, /a/. Nothing lasts forever.
>people who fill in these forms are likely to have a grudge against the police and will rate them low for the sake of being shits.
Which is taken completely into account.
Dont worry, there is a different between appeasing the public and actually taking stupid shit seriously.
>Damn liberal pansies! Criminals deserve nothing but abuse!
>But if I have a run-in with the cops, they need to be nice to me!
If you ever wonder why American cops are complete assholes, reflect on your own mentality, and consider how much of the public shares it.
>Implying you've gotten past the front page before deciding everything is shit
But that's exactly what you're doing by shitting on nationalism. Youre just jerking yourself ofd about how "progressive" you are. No one is explaining which posts they find nationalist, or disproving it or arguing with it.
You essentially want 4chan to be some normalfag echo chamber where unpopular opinions are shunned and weirdos looked down upon, but that is not what this is or ever will be.
Who's that? The fag who got ratted by his own wife? Regardless, it was in one of those ultra-conservative bible belt shitholes, not in one of the states that actually protect some freedoms.
Not going to lie, the interface alone was enough to put me off. I don't even care, I'd still rather cut off my dick and delete my loli.
No point arguing with them when they just dismiss anything that contradicts them.
There are places on reddit that are pure cancer. Same with 4chan. Dismissing the entirety is fucking retarded.
>Regardless, it was in one of those ultra-conservative bible belt shitholes, not in one of the states that actually protect some freedoms.
Still happened in the USA, buddy.
It's pretty fucking obvious this kind of thing will happen and I hardly expect anyone would set the standard that they should be mostly positive for people being arrested.
But really, the whole concept is bullshit. It exists just to give the public a sense that somebody gives a shit. In reality some underpaid bureaucrat has to read this shit and slap together some bullshit reports and presentations about it, next to no meaningful change comes out of it and it's just business as usual.
USA's laws vary by state. That said, I'm not trying to promote the USA in any way. I want to get the fuck out of here.
That's still one more case than what has happened in the UK. That said, I'm not exactly going to scream from the rooftops that I have loli here. Pedo paranoia is strong enough here that people will try to justify the murder of innocents on the basis of false accusations. Fuck knows what mobs would be like if they saw loli.
I have a question for these people complaining about nationalism on 4chan.... ever heard of 2channel? Like seriously? Is it THAT surprising to you that 4chan has more offensive/controversial beliefs than normalfag communities like reddit and neogaf and MAL?
Stop projecting so hard.
99% of the nationalism shitposters just regurgitate the same exact crap over and over. Not a single one of them actually came to the conclusion that they live in the greatest country on Earth. They were just told that, internalized it, and now spew it out like a mist of shit, all over the internet.
haha u mad
But conservatives are against big government though.
Thank god for state's rights. It feels good living in a state where I can fuck a dog then go home and fuck my sister, knowing that just 20 miles north they can't do that.
>and now spew it out like a mist of shit,
I like this phrase.
Also, >>100260879 is why a lot of the nationalist stuff posted is stupid as fuck.
Good, go back there.
Nobody is offended or surprised, just annoyed at having to wade through a bunch of irrelevant MUH CUNTRY dick waving.
4chan and reddit are two sides of the same hype-coin
oh. Oh, you're one of those, eh? Okay carry on.
I want winter break to leave.
Its okay, let it all out, which each subsequent post, you fit in even more.
In America "conservative" doesn't actually mean conservative, and hasn't for quite some time.
Feels good to form your own opinions.
Serious question, how hard is it to live in Japan? I know the society is fucked, but it's not like I'm even a social person. I just want to make money and live a quiet life alone in a modest home. Getting access to japanese MMO servers would be a pretty nice bonus too.
>4chan is shit and will always be
You both dodged the 2channel thing. Right-wing extremism is a recognized phenomenon among the otakus in Japan.
Fucking really? Why is this thread so gay?
Unless you have a Bachelors degree, Nigerian or Chinese (to immigrate illegaly), or have someone secure you a job before you even get there, you're fucked.
>Getting access to japanese MMO servers would be a pretty nice bonus too.
You'd be better off just paying for a Japanese VPN.
>I just want to make money and live a quiet life alone in a modest home.
If you live in a first world country, I can guarantee you'll have a far easier time doing this in your own, rather than trying to move to a country that doesn't want you there unless you're there temporarily teaching English or something.
>You both dodged the 2channel thing. Right-wing extremism is a recognized phenomenon among the otakus in Japan.
I fail to see your point.
I really hope it's not "b-but grorious nippon does it, now I must make more nationalistic shitposts or it will be a shamefur dispray."
>will be getting an English degree in one year
How much fresh Japanese pussy can I score ?
Average is 5 to 10 per year. The number of fresh pussies differs by prefecture, though.
None, since you won't get the job and will be NEET like me.
If you can't score at home you won't score there - beta is a universal smell.
My point is you're complaining about something that has always been a part of 4chan and the anime fandom. It is not something shocking or new. You should tolerate it, since essentially what you're bitching about yourself is tolerance anyway; be the change you seek. Be more open-minded, and stop calling people murrifats.
Oh. So this is what /pol/ threads look like.
