[TGDaily] Microsoft wants 'sick' PCs banned from the internet - Page 9

post #81 of 233
If anything like this was actually implemented, even though it sounds more like a PR stunt for corporate social responsibility, I would not be running Windows.

It wasn't so much godwin's law, as it was just obvious in similarity.

So, in doing so... I apparently either offended a user(s), or broke the rules.

So the moderator edited and deleted a few of my posts in order to fix that up.

I was not penalized or warned, just a simple ghost edit & delete.

Although I really should not of drawn attention to it... due to the nature of the comments in regard to what exactly was edited and deleted, would eventually encourage the conversation to work it's way towards the subject.

Like I said, it was simple just moderation, nothing to panic about *has gun put to back of head*

OOH wait, I also did some more drastic things, but it was only to show what I meant....

So let's all get back on topic.... This is about Microsoft trying to control exactly what can and cannot access the internet, thus controlling information.



Let's not get offtopic...


I personally think this is too much power for any company, government, or man to control.

I am not sure if the post was edited and this taken out, but there is so many uses for microsoft if this was implemented.

What Will Happen:
--
A external source will be looking through all or most of your personal files.
It will be the only way to connect using Windows.
Information there for will be controlled, and up to Microsoft or another external source who exactly is allowed online.
I agree with you 120%
I mean if you know what you're looking at, it gets pretty obvious that in fact Microsoft is actually trying to control the information on the net.

Like you quoted... Whoever controls the information, controls the world.

Well, I don't want to say they are attempting to control it, just regulate it, and in doing so they are controlling it.

You really have to say it like that or else you sound like a crazy person. =)

Here is a link you might be interested in.

http://themanicramblingsofaswede.wor...ols-the-world/

It's spot on the topic we are talking about...

But keep in mind I don't believe Microsoft is trying to control the world or anything, I think they are just acting out of their own benefits, and their own goals.

I am not insisting anything that is not obvious...

EDIT: Please actually read the content on that blog, it really is spot on...for the most part.

yeah .. usually people deem crazy other people talking like that when actually at the core of it the corporation is trying to do just that (controlling/regulating the information).

I've read that post and I find it interesting. At some point it will get to that IMO but not any time soon.
What Microsoft is trying to do now wont work. It just wont and its not going to be implemented.

This doesn't already happen? My friend awhile ago told me they got their connection blocked and were notified by their ISP that it was because their PC was too infected.

ISPs may disconnect you if you send email spam to people. They could get into a bit of hot water by allowing spam. That's a fairly isolated situation though, as they're not going to disconnect you because of some bad keygen on your PC.

It would be easier if Microsoft got with the same program that every other modern OS has: stop executing code without permissions, and actually have a permissions system (rather than running whatever happens to have a .EXE, .COM, or .DLL extention).

It seems to me that MS wants to "ban" computers, which is fine, but such a move will pretty much affect only their systems. No other OS has the virus prediliction. Of course, the other fail is that, if someone has something and is denied "health", how are they going to download the appropriate antidote software?

They don't. They will go and buy software made by a Microsoft® Certified Healthy Computing Partner form their local Best Buy.
