To those who are angry at the passing of the Digital Economy Bill...  
I do not encourage you, upon the month of its ratification, to download every film, tv episode and music track you would have otherwise bought.

I certainly will not support the idea of going to the houses of the MPs who voted for this bill and exploiting their unsecured wireless networks for mass quantities of torrenting, thus making them liable under the Bill's provisions.

And I most emphatically do NOT recommend signing up for the secure, anonymous iPREDator VPN service that spoofs your IP address, encrypts all that you do, stores no record of anything downloaded and is available at the low, low price of £5 a month.

Doing such a thing is unnecessary, after all, when we have democratically elected politicians who represent the interests of their constituents, and have not in any way been swayed by the influence of the major film and music industry lobbyists.

I would also ask you to not spread these thoughts around at all - not to your friends, on message boards, social networking sites, or wherever it is that such ideas may take root and substance.

But if you do... well, I would quite understand.

I guess I won't be investigating any of that, because I haven't lost my faith in democracy and don't think the Big Three are a pack of selfish tossers.
