    Well, this will be one country that mine won't stick its nose in in the interest of "freedom" for citizens. Not while they're at each others throats politically. More on-topic, how easy it is for measures like this to be enacted and to go unnoticed until it's already at the doorstep. What's more unfortunate is how easy it is to convince people it won't or can't happen in their own country.

    That's why history repeats. No one ever learns from it.

    agreed sadly :(

    well theirs ways around that problem as we all know, so its all good.

    What Russia is claiming they will block sounds all good and all but, as we all know the problem is that more then likely they will block more then that and it will just become a tool for the people with the most power to gain even more.

    And if you ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ about it they can block your internet site ;)
