IMHO having a server in a country that does not have a Disney Millennium
Copyright Act, and does have a right to privacy in their laws, is a much
better deal.

I'm not asking for, nor do I want a group with warez, keys, porn, etc. What
I want is a group where I can feel free discussing the existence of such
things, or techniques such as holding down the shift key when inserting 
a CD into a Windows computer.

Is C news still around? We could all compile it on our systems, set up
SSL'ed UUCP links, and run our own USENET. :-)

i.e possessing less facts or information than can be found in the Wikipedia.
