The UK government has a bizarre idea of "communications capabilities development": mass-monitoring of IP traffic, and snooping into what British netizens are up to. Despite being defeated during the UK Labour Party rule, there seems to be a revival of the idea of greater monitoring of internet traffic under the Conservative government, under a legislation titled "Communications Capabilities Development Programme".

and how are ISP's going to afford this massive amount of storage? in game voice chat would amount to some massive amounts of data...

The size of in-game voice chat data is nothing compared to that of Skype calls.

It doesnt worry me.

Another "gvt" technology project that will cost billions, allow hundreds of corrupt millions to be embezzelled, and will lead to nothing except an out of date concept still in design and pilot phase in 8 years time, being cancelled and wasting taxpayers money. It will also employ people for a few years to get those statistics down, and allow people to play procurement games and take skims and lock in silly over-the-top prices. It will be supervised by people with little technical competence. And it will be monitored by the children of the people using those video cams on streets that dont catch thieves but watch for people who illegally park for 3 minutes.

If the UK can't digitise medical records, can't build submarines, can't build radar systems, can't get internet to rural sites... it will FAIL in this endeavour.

But it will distract people from other issues. All good political gamesmanship.

And the solution for those who dont want to participate to UK's new skynet system:

1) Tunnel all your connections through a virtual adapter
2) Purchace a connection to Yourfreedom or Hidemyass
3) re-route all you traffic to the yourfreedom or hidemyass server with encryption

You are not being spied upon anymore.
Next plz.

And it is actually exactly what the person in the post above says.

fucking politicians, and lobbyists lets not forget to curse them bstards:D

its not going tobe the government doing the work though is it, its Isps and they would be forced by law to comply or cease tradeing and private business finds a way( their (nasa/private firms)discussing building a petral station for rockets in space which cant be finacially sound)

And the solution for those who dont want to participate to UK's new skynet system:

1) Tunnel all your connections through a virtual adapter
2) Purchace a connection to Yourfreedom or Hidemyass
3) re-route all you traffic to the yourfreedom or hidemyass server with encryption

eh so china and korea can lock down their peeps internet but with a virtual network they would be fine, you underesstimate what could be done, probably is being done anyway:confused:

and they only have to list connections between points with dates and times etc for the amount of data logging to be tolerable yet still be usefull to companies and Agencys:mad:

SOPA/PIPA in the U.S.
ACTA in Europe
That C-something bill in Canada
Now this in the UK.

All within a few months. I'm not much for the tinfoil hat people and those theories but it can't be coincidental that several world leaders "suddenly" decide to stomp down the internet.

Then again, some people just want to watch the world burn.

Thank the Arab Spring and the London Riots. They were all organized via social media on the web. Thats the connection. Not the Freemasons or the Illuminati or whatever the crackpots dream up.

"thank them" almost seems negative, as though you blame them for it. same with the piracy argument - excuses excuses.
they are agendas that have been pushed long before the london riots & long before napster - those are just catalysts.

even when you can point at a problem and say -> they did it. they rioted, they copied copyrighted data, they did it, ok. someone was bound to, that doesn't in any way excuse what's done in response. to simply hand it off and say "thank those guys" relieves responsibility from the 'wonderful people' that are actually behind the agenda.

it doesn't take illuminati or any "secret" group. it just takes a few people in a position of power with like goals. it's amazing what a positive feedback loop can allow someone to do... righteously.

Further I wouldn't trust any Government with that kind of data (even one I were in charge of myself) as it's way too open to abuse :shadedshu

Well honestly thats not even how I meant it. lol. I'm just saying the agenda got a lot more supporters because of the Arab spring and riots. Way to take it out of context! :laugh:
