Norwegian Wouldn’t … (Would they?)

ISP blocking hints at dangerous territory

I secretly fear that the regulations online pokerers are fighting for could provide the foundations of a 21st Century global Internet police force that I would probably strongly oppose. Starts as an issue of taxation … then before you know it we’re talking freedom, death rays, and war!

But meh … we can deal with that later, as the internet tyrants will likely need consultants the way armies need bot programmers and access to our online funds.

Still … You can see the roots of such oppression in a land known for slippery slopes, as Norway thinks about blocking ISPs to keep out offshore purveyors of online gambling.
