The amount of data that passes thru an ISP's network per second would blow your mind. The tools we use to capture traffic, save it and convert the 1's and 0's in a protocol analyzer is very time consuming and resource intensive. So its only used to troubleshoot real problems and not to just sit there wondering what Joe Blow is doing today.
Strangely enough, it's not the government that's doing that. I think the main reason this particular article was posted is that some people might not be aware of the power that their ISP presumes to have over you and your connection.mmartinfan said:But GreatLakes and BNS don't wanna hear that, all they see is the website article title and say OMG the Government is here to take away our rights..... and lets post it on RR.com.
Actually in the Sate Of Indiana it is, some very odd laws on it.shaft said:When did porn become illegal?
shaft said:Its not illegal for the average citizen though. Sex Offenders fall into a completely differnet catagory.
i did read the articles, but it mentioned nothing to the fact that possesing, purchasing, or even downloading porn is illegal for people in the state of Indiana.Viper43 said:Did you read the articles? According to the Indiana ACLU even sex offenders have "full rights" once they have served their time, off parole/probation......
I'm not supporting the ACLU, or sex offenders, I'm just pointing out what they claim, personally they should just take em out back and.....well, we wouldn't have to worry about them again or having police waste their time baby sitting them on their computers....
