WinMx World News / Is The UK Facing A "Big Brother " Freedom Crackdown ?
« Last post by GhostShip on September 20, 2018, 10:49:12 pm »
Just when you think things cannot get worse  :ugly:

The UK government is considering "all options", including a regulator, as part of new legislation governing the internet.
It has previously said it will publish a White Paper in the coming months, laying out its proposals

 *  digital literacy programmes in schools
 *  greater transparency around online advertising
 *  forcing websites to remove illegal hate speech within a specific time period or face penalties. A similar law is in force in Germany
 *  making social networks verify the age of their users
 *  punishing social networks that failed to remove terror content or child abuse images
 *  restricting advertisements online for food and soft drink products that were high in salt, fat or sugar

It seems that the whole focus is on selected negative aspects of the online world, we often see such "extremist" talk from the govt when its desperate to get a new law passed, the ploy is the same each time, toss in some news soundbites about danger to children or terrorism and nearly all involved will feel powerless to vote against the proposal for fear of being singled out.

We need the UK's MP's to park their fears and do the decent thing in defending the productive online space that is still being data mined by the self same authorities for intelligence, when they effectively shut down free speech just how are they going to find the child attackers and terrorists ?  Cake and eat it anyone ?

I still have concerns about that side of things, remember the nice gifts "donated" to Peter Mandelsson, holidays etc to assist him in siding with the rights holders lobby ?

When we are "soverreign" how will we call such corrupt practices to book ?

Perhaps so Bearded, whats forgotten by many is that in the online world its trivial to turn from friend to foe over a misunderstanding or loss of trust, such events are easier to resolve in face to face fashion as you have 2 extra layers of feedback in the form of vocal intonations and facial expressions, such helpful tools to guiding oneself down tthe path ahead are lost online and we rely on typed words that may impart a meaning not intended or go too far in making a point.

I do like to fall back on the actual record of the past rather than claims made by certain folks that have proved groundless, no one runs the WPN, there are no adverts here, no one have seized power over the network and no one has been silenced, all of the above are old claims put forward by folks no longer in the community but as always none of them are true.

I pont out these things simply to show that nothing has changed much, we are always stronger together and weaker when faced with endless divisions, I have had to trust many folks over the years and nearly all of them have remained trustworthy and of good repute in their efforts to serve the community, for that I thank them and I am sure they have many friends whom still remember the good help they have received, in one or two cases events have turned sour and friends walk away with a bad taste in their mouths but looking back at the bigger picture reveals the true path of the continuing efforts here, the goals are still the same and the community can still freely choose where it goes to interact, that may not be here but we are still here to assist those whom require something more than a scripted response.

The future is what we ourselves make it, that is the essence of the way ahead.

Speaking as a UK resident.  Maybe we'll end up out of the EU with no deal.. at which point we'll actually be a sovereign nation again and able to make our own rules.. one can hope....

I know a little about losing trust in people, that might even have some bearing on long abscences
WinMx World News / EU Copyright Changes On The Way
« Last post by GhostShip on September 13, 2018, 06:35:22 pm »
The greedy rights holders have "donated" enough "gifts" it seems.

Controversial new copyright laws have been approved by members of the European Parliament.
The legislation had been changed since July when the first version of the copyright directive was voted down. Critics say it remains problematic.

Phil Sherrell, head of media, entertainment and sports at law firm Bird & Bird said: "Rights holders will be delighted as the directive provides them with additional rights and should strengthen their ability to negotiate royalty payments from online platforms that use their work."

But, he added: "The devil remains in the detail; the next few months will see the EU Council get the directive into final form for it to be passed into law - potentially before Brexit - and there remain opportunities for those disappointed by today's vote to try to alter the drafting."

As always plenty of talk about protecting the rights of middle-man non content creators and little in the way of reform for overbroad copyright time frames, greed knows no bounds it seems.
OpenNap / Re: No Incoming Connections

I have posted in another topic you created Lakehavasu so this ones pretty much redundant however I would suggest you do undertake a forwarding of the tcp transfer port for opennap and if possible ask a winmx or opennap chat room user to join the same opennap server and make a test download as this live feedback method can take a lot of the guesswork out of resolving any problems.

Beardeds right to say such topics are a bit dusty for many of us  :)

If you are forwarding the ports for OpenNap its only going to need TCP forwarding on your transfer port.
