RE: Newsgroups, Please Explain

Hi,

We provide a full uncensored newsfeed, and as such are only a carrier provider. If we were to start to censor the newsfeed we would then become liable for its content by UK law. It is simply not feasable to carry out such a censoring process thoughorly enough to ensure no posts that could be deemed as illigal get through.

Although we do not agree with the content of such groups, there is very little we can do about it at the present time.

I hope that this explains the situation.


Kind Regards,
Russell.

Thats pretty silly, its like illegal to stop child porn, lol. Dont you just love the UK, ok thanks anyways for providing a great service. My ADSL got turned on early thanks to your good support, and its been fine for 24hours, only once i got disconnected.

This ISP has the little things that make it good, News Servers, 250mb php/mysql webspace. My Usage, game servers, those little things Smiley

Thanks,
