    David Cameron has signalled that he intends to ban strong encryption — putting the British government on a collision course with some of the biggest tech companies in the world.

    As reported by Politics.co.uk, the British Prime Minister reaffirmed his commitment to tackling strong encryption products in Parliament on Monday in response to a question.

    Strong encryption refers to the act of scrambling information in such a way that it cannot be understood by anyone — even law enforcement with a valid warrant, or the software company itself — without the correct key or password.

    It's currently used in some of the most popular tech products in the world, including the iPhone, WhatsApp, and Facebook. But amid heightened terrorism fears, David Cameron is attempting to take action.

    Wow, David Cameron is a fucking genius. I am amazed at just how far stupidity rose in the ranks. I always had the impression that Politicians were supposed to be somewhat more intelligent than the average person.

    I think the Hatebreeder/Varine relationship is one of my favorites on here. There's genuine contempt. You don't just antagonize each other for the sake of it, you do it because you hate the person behind ya'll's respective handles, and it's a hatred that's been nurtured over the ages, throughout the archives of TheHelper.net itself. It's a hatred that we've all watched grow, that we've all been a part of, and it's just good to see that our baby is still going strong as ever.

    Keep it up, guys. And shit on your name, Hatebreeder. It's a shit coincidence that it makes you seem like the only one doing anything, here.

    Would have been better in a thread where they actually threw shit at each other instead of here.

    Well, he goes and ignores everyone else's comments but makes sure to put down Hatebreeder after what he said. It wasn't necessarily hateful, but he goes out of his way to show his disdain for the man for, what I assume to be, no other reason than to belittle him. That's what made me think of the laughs they've given me over the years.

    Yup. No more secrets. Only terrorists like secrets.
