an Idaho ISP, YourT1wifi dot com, has emailed their customers informing them that they will begin blocking Twitter and Facebook practicing censorship.
Customers must contact them to be placed on the "no block list" if they want to use either site.
I feel like I have not been able to even for centuries.
@djsundog yeah, I saw that. I block Facebook at my router, but that doesn't mean I want my ISP to do it!
Welcome to the, uhh, I don't know what.
But anyway, welcome.
Pull up a table.
@djsundog Can I please get YourT1Wifi here in Germany,too? 😃 It's really cool how they protect their users from the BigTech surveillance platforms 👍
re: net neutrality
@djsundog Apparently it didn't last too long:
> After the decision started attracting attention on social media, the owner of the company said the websites would only be blocked for customers who asked.
@djsundog I saw this! And I thought, maybe it's actually a phishing scam to get people to give the sender their ISP information?
That would make more sense than an ISP actually shooting itself in the foot this badly
@djsundog You have to understand, a lot of people in Idaho (my homeland) are 19th Century savages; not even dumb or mean, just several tech levels behind. Those with any tech skills are pretty much Geordi-to-Pakleds.
Blocking "bad" content for them, either preemptively or on request, is probably the best idea anyone's ever had.
