The bit that gets me is that all people will need to do is use a proxy.
They're firefighting by peeing on a bushfire rather than doing any good, and wasing ridiculous amounts of effort and taxpayers' money on a situation they seem to have little understanding of.
Whether they blocked it or not it will have little effect.
The block, starting within weeks, will mean millions of Britons will no longer be able to access one of the biggest and longest-running global filesharing sites.
Proxy. Bam. Done.
Come on government and legal folks, get some better IT professionals on board to help inform your decisions before wasting so much time and effort on things.
way the government will ever solve the problem is to have a completely enclosed internet like Iran are planning, or severely restrict all access like in China. And then they've become something they don't want to be. Well done.
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.
