Oh those silly, authoritarian Chinese!

Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook:

"I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away," she said during a panel discussion on social media hosted Tuesday evening by Marie Claire magazine. "People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. ... I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors."

Eric Schmidt, Google:

Speaking on a panel at the event, Schmidt argued that anonymity on the Internet is dangerous. "In a world of asynchronous threats, it is too dangerous for there not to be some way to identify you," he said.

Schmidt took the stance that governments may eventually put an end to anonymity. "We need a [verified] name service for people," he said. "Governments will demand it."

Farkers love and hate the Chinese, as they love and hate themselves.

So, if a Chinese registry of internet users is a precursor to a crack down on free speech, what is a Fienstien gun ban that requires owners of legally purchased and owned weapons to register them?

Funny because also in US speech is not anonymous to government, if someone cares enough to look, or anyone else with subpoena power.

ShannonKW: Reputation is an ancient device for ordering the behavior of people, even in the absence of law, and it could be made to work for us on the Internet.


And pen names are an ancient device for keeping your identity secret when you write stuff that might get you in trouble.

What scares me is people like Feinstein and company take notes from them because these things sound like good ideas in their warped little minds.

Umm... Patriot Act?

It's been stated pretty well on this thread already but ALL people with power will eventually become paranoid and want to take away people's rights.

I've been saying that about the FarkLibtards for years.


So, as a FarkIdiot, you think encouraging banks and power plants and so forth to be secure is bad, and you prefer the Republican CISPA plan, which is a far greater Federal intrusion into your privacy, because it was proposed by Republicans.

Got it.

Haliburton Cummings: Ed Finnerty: serial_crusher: The measure would require service providers to ask users to provide their real names and other identifying information if they want to post information publicly or sign up for access to the internet and telephone services, Xinhua said.

Isn't that basically how it works in America?  You try signing up for an ISP or phone company without providing your name and billing address.

They can always use a Virtual Private Netwok.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

you better hold on tighter to your "packet" there Turing.

VPN's don't circumvent programs like carnivore and that's almost an obsolete technology at this point.
encryption is (almost) useless too.

i don't have the link handy, but three weeks ago or so, a kid broke the best encryption method in less than 48 hours using a hotrodded server.

that encryption was supposedly unbreakable.

those that own the hose control the water from the well and they are compliant to corporations and the police state...in Gunmerica, England, Canada etc etc...

you go hide behind your "ten proxy" VPN and threaten a president or something and see how long it takes to find you...

now shush


You may want to read my post more carefully.

doglover: Weaver95: i'm sort of expecting the GOP to try to push this sort of legislation here in the US.

They already is.


One of these days you're going to figure out that the people in power on the left, such as Obama, Pelosi, and the like are not the same as the rank and file liberal on the left.

And almost without exception, when the people in power on the left are left unchecked they will push through massive government control of everything because its "what's best" for "everyone" and by "everyone" they mean them and by "what's best" they mean control of the money.
