if the government has its way.

"The government will be able to monitor the calls, emails, texts and website visits of everyone in the UK under new legislation set to be announced soon". according to the BBC

Lib Dem home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne said any legislation requiring communications providers to keep records of contact would need "strong safeguards on access", and "a careful balance" would have to be struck "between investigative powers and the right to privacy.

To which most of us cynics would say 'Oh yeah?'

There is a difference between China, Russia, North Korea and the UK.

In the other countries alleged dissidents are treated very harshly, witness the ridiculous attempts China makes each year to stop any mention of Tienanmen Square. If you are a suspected dissident there's every chance that you'll be the next passenger for a one way trip in the mobile execution van that tours the country, and then sells organs to the US

Big brother will soon tire of it; there are now even more loud ads.

We have discussed this before. I get none of the things you mention. Just block them. If you want more info just say. (I am on W7, IE9 and use Abibe and Easylist tracking protection and DNT+ with none of your recurring problems)

And I'm grasteful for the help John. But it did get to the point where you advised me to start a thread to get more help as you were stumped as to why I could not find what you were directing me to. I must admit I decided not to do that as I feel the Helproom is a victim of its own success and, therefore, not very useful anyumore; the only other part of the site I ever really use is this one, in which I just read arguments.

So, it isn't really that much of a concern now, but I wish it concerned the site admins a little more; it's obviously of no consequence to them. But, whereas I may well be the only person you have seen complaining, I'm not actually the only one who has.

I'm not sure ad blockers are the way forward with a site paid for by ads either, but mayeb I'm missing some technicalities.

Still grateful fo rall your help.

I'm shutting the PCA tab now as I don't want to hear an ad for the sixth time today.

Evening all.

alan 14 you are talking about dissidents in a country that nobody could or would class as a democracy, we are supposed to be a free democracy but under these new rules your every move could be followed and all you need is a smart phone on you.

But if you are happy with every web site you visit, every phone call, every e-mail you send or even every thing you put onto some thing like face book being tracked by the police then so be it, but I'm not.

Frankly I don't care. If the police want to follow my mundane life that's absolutely fine. I'll friend them on Facebook if it'll make their lives easier...

Some one mentioned that we are not as bad as some places in the world but after reading this we are going in the same direction enter link description here.

I wonder how some of you lot would react to your son or daughter being bared from a town centre JUST because they are only 14-15 and they are made into criminals if they go.

"I wonder how some of you lot would react to your son or daughter being bared from a town centre JUST because they are only 14-15 and they are made into criminals if they go."

Same principle as if you are caught taking alcohol in a Muslim country.

It's against the law. If you don't like a country's laws, don't go there, whether it be Wales or Iran.

They're not being criminalised because they are in the town centre, or because it is after 9.00 pm, but for the same reason as every other criminal, for breaking the law.

If you don't like the laws you live under, change them.
