Correct! This is not the best for exposing this case, Phorm. My intention
is disclosed. Aside from that, here is another Brazilian
I think they should be aware of and fight against Phorm, because I
think Phorm is a threat to Internet freedom, and this issue I think is
interesting to anyone ...
To be or not be an idiot, it's irrelevant!
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
To the OP, I'd say: Write a letter to your ISP to register your objection to its use. Ranting on a forum like this really does no good, and presenting it as some sort of threat specific to Slackware just makes you look like an idiot. (Sorry, but it does).
As does changing the thread title from
"Warning to users of Slackware"
"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.
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.
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.

*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.
