Philosophical discussions of the ethics of civil disobedience are not exactly on topic, but I doubt they will get deleted if they don't contain insults.

Any time you are thinking about paying for some service on the web, such as a message board or web hosting, read the "Terms of Use" or "Terms and Conditions" or whatever it's called. You will probably find a clause saying that services will be discontinued without refund for violation of any law.

I have pointed out on several occasions that if you have a browser window open on one web site, and you surf directly to another web site without opening a new instance of the browser, the second web site knows where you came from. This is how leeching protection usually works. Web masters use this information for a variety of purposes.
