This is probably the first time I have rated a thread as "terrible".

I was thinking of a rating of "very confusing." But it isn't in the list.

thank you for your replies!
Maybe you should have titled "Warning for my slackware friends" or something like that
As it, the title seems to indicate that there is something specific to slackware happening

This is a very odd thread indeed. I see this is your first post on the LQ forums. Profanity is generally not acceptable here.

It wasn't just the title though. This is the part that has rattled everyone's cage:

The suggestion is that Slackware is somehow unsuitable in this situation, but that Windows 7 is fine.

I'm going to put this down as a failure to communicate your point due to language issues.

So, from what I understand, you posted in the Slackware forum to warn us about your ISP ... which has absolutely nothing to do with Slackware, at all.

I believe that The OP claim that the Dephormation Firefox plugin works under Hell7, but not under Slackware.

However I think that the right medicine against Phorm's big-brother is a cute secured VPN connection. Where Slackware cook like the Chef of Her Majesty Queen.

Agreed.
As does changing the thread title from
"Warning to users of Slackware"
to
"Warning for my friends"

Seriously though, good luck to you in getting your ISP to behave. The toughest part of protecting online consumer interests is still educating legislators to comprehend the difference between an effective law and a complete waste of time. Or a roadblock or a security hole or a catastrophic insecure chasm.

From what I read about this issue with Phorm, the only real solution is to get another ISP. I say you start a campaign to boycott the ISP and their illegal activities. Inform others, explain to them the problems, and maybe they'll listen.

Agreed.

*ALSO* if this truly is illegal, contact government representation and report it. If you can demonstrate how it violates a law, the legal system can hit them while they lose customers because educated users will boycott. The two most effective ways of affecting a company of any kind.
