Noticed this the other day.

If you gave a donation early in the piece, it seems, then you still get
it free.

It was predictable. I was in fact waiting for it to occur and was
wondering how long it would take before we saw commercialism raise its
ugly head and restrictiveness become the rule as the presiding
paradigmatic representation. It assuredly bucks against the pure
phreaker mindset, as was originally out-pictured in years gone by. In
our so-called progressive world, I am afraid money speaks the loudest
and the longest.

I think as time progresses you'll see the bulk of that which
was free in the past turning the commercial route. Even some of the
previously free online content on the daily rag sites are heading to
the commercial trend.

There are a plethora of other sites available of a commercial nature
online, it is therefore disappointing that we could not have at least
one non-commercial reverse lookup site and especially such a one
dedicated to Australian telephone numbers. Than again, as
representative of the spirit conveyed in some of my previous posts,
what indeed would one expect of humans other than a commercialised
life mentality in a considerably over-the-top precipitant.

At the very least am able to say that I made some use of it in the early
stages, in that minuscule period in time when it was free and less
restrictive than it eventually became in its development.

My advice to anyone and everyone is, take full advantage of anything
you can that is currently free because the push to commercialism is on
in full force and is only going to become the deemed norm of the human
experience in a contrived human society where dumbed-down thinking is
at play.

It is all very well to bespeak of the cost to provide this, that or the
other service, but few genuinely look for alternatives whereby a free
service can be offered and continued. Also, the presiding thought
nowadays seems to be that the people have bottomless pockets from which
they can extract money at any time and in any quantity.

Another example is Mailwasher the latest version is a regular period
payment unlike the old versions of a one off payment.

Life in a monetary-based and supremely dependent societal construct is a
bitch, to put it mildly.

And just consider some of the hardware examples, like the chipped
printer cartridges that expire at a predetermined date even though
their is still ink and sometimes plenty of ink left in the darn
cartridge. That's another and well defined rip-off, notwithstanding the
more or less implausible argument of the manufacturers that with the
age of the ink comes a potential deterioration in printing quality. In
the final analysis, control IMHO should be left in the hands of the
end-user and they shouldn't be dictated to by those overt commercial
interests who would decide on our behalf.

unlike the old versions of a one off payment.

I was a big fan of mailwasher and one of their first customers. I gave them one
email address to contact me on:
mailwasher_AT_@dontronics.com. They were the only company given that email
address to contact me on.

After receiving one spam and one virus through this email address to me, I
dumped them. Mind you that was about 8 years
ago. They explained the first one, but never ever got back to me on the second
one.

And if you want to know how to simply get rid of Email Spam:

Like once upon a time you could walk into the local Post Office and
browse freely (in both senses) through a hard-copy electoral roll.

They are a bit slow on the update at the AEC, my local member won in a
landslide (as usual) but according to the aec I don't have a local member.

Thats not the electoral roll, thats the election result.

The AEC only updates the final election result when the ballot is declared and
that wont happen for about a week
now with most of the seats, they have to allow a couple of weeks for all the
postal ballots to have come in.

And even then the result can be legally disputed at times too.

75% of the about 90% vote counted so far. And they still won't put him over
the line, only an 18th century though and it won't be dragged kicking and
screaming into the 19th.

Intrstingly, that page states "The roll is not available for sale in
any format".  Maybe the key words are "for sale", as local pollies get
their state roll supplied FOC on CD.

If it's available to view electronically at their offices, I wonder why
they couldn't put it on the web?

They can, but choose not to.

There has been considerable controversy about having the date online
where it can be used to chase up where people currently are etc.

I don't understand why, if anyone can walk into an AEC office and get
the information anyway.

Because you have to manually transcribe it there.
Online, you could automate it and pull the lot for junk mailing, etc.
