Feels like I’m linking to something like this every week 😦 Another story about the threat to the freedom of the internet and how it is fragmenting in to a series of smaller, censored networks where privacy is non-existent. Scary days.

It is funny how these stories break when they do because I am sure this list of ‘banned’ words has been available from GDS from months.
