    Fair enough, I have no idea what Tor is.

    "Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol."

    Note the bold; the point is that resources are limited. That some urbanite ****wits are encouraging other urbanite ****wits to use it makes them.....well, ****wits.

    I'm not sure but I think it's safe to say that all who viewed that season are winners.

    This is lame on so many levels. Tor is for people who genuinely need to hide their online tracks because they're in fear for their lives, not your torrenting or masturbatory /r/gore viewing FFS.
    Is that the 'deep web' thing? Heard a lot of terrifying stories about that.

    Mostly, yeah. Deep webs are are stuff like back-ends to dynamic pages, unlinked pages, FTP's etc. Search engines don't index it for many reasons, most of them technical (waiting on a crawl of all possible query combinations of a page with a MySQL back-end would destroy anyone's will to live if all they wanted was the current time in London, England). Tor uses non-indexed servers + onion routing but only to re-route the request using trusted peers so it's more of a Dark Web. The closest analogue to Tor would be this scene in Sneakers where they call the NSA except the links between servers are encrypted, the route is random (even the person sending the message has no idea where it's going before it gets to where it's supposed to, called mixed cascading) and they take other security measures but I'm not sure what they are.

    My understanding of most dark webs is that they're full of drugs, equipment to make drugs, conspiracy theorists organising stuff they'll never have the gumption to actually do or CP. How delicious. No wait, the other thing; tedious. I have heard stories of hits being solicited, etc. but I'd guess they're few and far between, it's still far more effective for cartel psycho's to do things more personally.

    Yeah, all I know about it is what I've read from Reddit trolls. Has your department foiled any crimes via Tor? Sounds like a gold mine for sting operations, especially for CP sellers.

    haha, no. I've been out now for 4 years but that's generally an FBI thing because they have the boffins who can actually access that ****. Bang for buck is greater targeting idiots who post CP on Yahoo Groups.

    Dickwipe batsmen who complain about 'bat breaker' balls

    Some of us aren't loaded enough to buy FC-quality Kookaburras, alright? If you're terrified of the $600 bat you use in pub cricket being splintered by a flighted leg-break from a Kmart ball, maybe you should knock the ****ing thing in.

    Or at least hit it in the middle of the bat. FMD.

    Haha yeah fully agreed. If you're worried about the quality of the balls being bowled at you then supply your own balls to the net bowlers, otherwise STFU. It'd be like me having a whinge after some **** edges a ball a bowl into the side netting and scuffs up the side I've been shining.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Stylishly put away. Young orthdox had squared the ball (ha) beautifully, tbf, but it still needed a touch for the score.

    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
