But let's get to the policing that actually has an effect, it is better to leave this information available, as it is anyway, because people are flagged by the sites hits, in the same way someone who buys large amounts of sulphuric acid and nitric acid without good reason is flagged or a large amount of fertiliser.
Everytime someone checks out the Drano® site they're flagged as a threat to toilets (and fish) everywhere.:eek:

Its simple.
Teach people well.
Otherwise its like saying "gee, we could have put brakes on that train instead of figuring out a way to stop it now."

geez, how many terrorists, do you think, ll refer to wiki or any other site or so, to make a bomb????
 
Well not large terrorist groups, they'll just recruit an expert to train them generally like the IRA did. But common or garden mad loners, like the Uni bomber might. Anyway let's just say that the internet is not the source of information preferé for the worlds more discriminating psychotic lunatics.

Thats the advantage of the internet. Instead of going to the library and finding accurate information in the Encylopedia Britannica or the American chmeical society handbook he will get something from some Slashdot poster and probably blow himself up - or will get so depressed trawling through the posts of drooling idiot conspiracy theorists he will deliberately blow himself up - or he will get distracted by the latest pics of Paris Hilton he will forget about it.
The main purpose of the internet is to distract people from doing any real work - why shouldn't this also apply to mad loners!

This is a moderation note:
The topic of discussion, namely legislation of content on the internet, is certainly allowed here. However, please refrain from giving specific examples or "how-to" advice. That is not the subject of the thread, and whether others appreciate the irony or not, we already prohibit discussion of dangerous/illegal acts on this site. We do not want anyone getting hurt trying something at home that they shouldn't, and we don't want the legal problems that could ensue from having such acts available on our site. There is no reason to describe specific recipes/acts in order to discuss this topic.

Sorry about the cleaning instructions I gave in this thread. They are a fictitious and tougue-in-cheek look at what happened, by accident, in a Texas home some years ago..... completely by accident. Kind of a Murphy's Law thingy.:smile:

My wife claims that any man entering a bathroom with cleaning products is doing it by accident.
 
Sure I see your point MB, although to be frank anyone who tried to make high explosives outside of a lab or without proper safety equipment and with only those instructions, would no doubt blow the hell out of himself/herself, but then I guess that's the point. :smile:

Don't make high explosives at home kids.

As an example Alfred Nobel lost his younger brother and several other workers in an explosion at his factory, and there were several other explosions during it's existence.

today when i was seeing some news channel, there was a debate going on the availability of all the plans of all major places in the state, like the place of prime minister and the president and all others, on http://wikimapia.org/. these things were also available on google earth. Title of the debate was "can terrorists use this??"
so how much dangerous are "wikimapia or google earth"??
should they be banned??
