    This is a fine how-do-you-do!

    Dutch ISPs Admit to Using Deep Packet Inspection

    Digital Civil Rights in Europe reports: "During an investors day on 10 May 2011 in London, Dutch Internet service provider KPN admitted to using deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, to determine the use of certain applications by its mobile internet customers. Vodafone soon followed with an announcement that it used this technology for traffic shaping. The Dutch minister of Economic Affairs within days announced an investigation into KPN's practices and promised to publish the results within two weeks."

    Wait until IPv6 is here fine sire. The government will be able to see, and track, everything you are doing more easily.

    You would be correct.

    I am not sure why so many mailers are in such a rush for IPv6 since they will be so much easier to track and trace. I guess it's the allure of all of those IP's and deliver-ability. I am never a fan of be "big brother" no matter if it's IP's or something else.

    Let them track and trace who gives a fuck... as long as you arent spoofing or hiding anything and being compliant they cant do shit. Big brother can watch me mail 2 billion per month if he wants.

    Wait until the Spamhaus finds a way to track you using it.
    :hello:

    That is one of my concerns. Who wields that power. As we've already seen through SH extortion policies. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Who cares if the packets contain the NIC/ethernet info inside them? It's going to all point toward the ISP's hardware not your own pc at your office/house, right? What am I missing here with your concerns?

    So, by that logic you don't mind the cops stopping and searching you whenever they want? After all, you don't have anything to hide, right?
