Thread: Us servers safe

  1. #1
    hi again sorry for all the posts, i have recently been using Europe servers based in amsterdam, but the ssl servers i am using are only in georgia, usa. is it just as safe to use a US server as it is to use a Europe server?

    Yep, should be no different. Dont see Big Brother coming to shut down Giganews any time soon

    You're just fine.

    I'm using Giganews which just so happens to be just a few miles from me in Austin, Texas.

    Also, to quote Beck38 as he put is nicely...

    Usenet servers are (and have been for many many years), in the U.S., come under 'common carrier' laws and regulations, like the phone company. The telcos cannot be sued for what they 'carry' (i.e., like a bomb threat for instance), or satellite companies (like 'Playboy' or Howard Stern) as they come under 'common carrier' laws. In fact, they are 'required' to carry any and all paid traffic, going back to 1934; very settled law.

    Hell, it's one of the few US laws that actually makes sense. A shame they weren't all so sane.

    dont be ridiculous. usenet do not come under common carrier statutes. the services covered are defined by the statutes. if usenet was common carrier then usenet companies could no have a acceptable use policy.

    Since you're so close to giganews, can you give those servers a little "umph?" I have trouble getting 100mbps at school. Pretty close though.
