"Listening to the "special interests" who worry about freedom of speech and breaking the Internet? Well, that makes you just as much a criminal as they are." -- Don Henley of The Eagles really does need to think more deeply about this and recognise that the 20 century's music business winners are the problem, not the solution.

I'm not sure what offends me most about Google's idiotic approach here; the patronising parochialism that says they are the arbiters of what a "real" name is and how it's constructed, the heavy-handed use of Terms of Service to bully individuals, the disregard for the established privacy strategies of so many people or the "talk to the hand" strategy when it's all questioned. Whichever it is, it's offensive and I have no idea why the anonymous person who has decided to pick this fight and call in air-cover to protect them is doing so.

Excellent article. -- "The internet does not exist as untouchable. Morality and the rule of law do apply to the actions people do there. The question is whether those laws are appropriate. ... And the proper response, if there is "unsuitable" (unsuitable to whom, by the way?) content is to go after those who produced and distributed it. Not to seek to block access and sweep it under the rug. That's denial. Let's live in reality."

CIX is still the hosting provider for the static parts of my web site, just as it has been ever since they introduced those novel "web page" things a couple of decades ago. I too still have my CIX "sphipps" ID and mail to it still works fine.
