Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

It is interesting that Microsoft is closing some chat rooms. I don't know what their motive is, per se. But I wonder where this level of internet moderation will lead. Again, it fundamentally leads to relying on someone else to police your network connection.

Malcolm Hutty, of the London Internet Exchange, asks an interesting question:

Where exactly is this leading? If perfect safety is the only standard we can tolerate, will the next target be an 'open, free, unmoderated' website? Or will the next demands be to close down email? Because that has its own dangers too," he said.

Very true. Given the choice between freedom and security, even in the world of online services, I will always choose freedom.
