The Newsnight crew respond to some of the criticism of their "interesting" BitTorrent article from a couple of days ago.
(For "poorly-researched, scaremongering, lazy" values of "interesting".)
"This proposition brought us so much sh*t that it had to be continued on the next fan."
But, again, they miss the point.
"What we'd really like to hear is a debate on the issue we did raise. If the ISPs can't now detect torrent data, then how will the security services manage it?"
No, BBC. The debate is whether the security services have any right to "manage" (that is, intercept) it in the first place.
It's a shame to see our public-service broadcaster parroting the government's guilty-until-proven-innocent strategy yet again.

I am slightly amazed that there's a market for this, but it looks like it'd be fun to play with.
