UK ISP group names Mozilla 'Internet Villain' for supporting 'DNS-over-HTTPS' | ZDNet
UK government and local ISPs are putting the pressure on browsers to drop plans to support DoH protocol.
@ScottMortimer fuck you isps, who's gonna protect me from you?
@ScottMortimer be gay do crimes
@ScottMortimer Mozilla did nothing wrong.
@ScottMortimer I still need some explanation as to how DNS-over-HTTPS is so bad for parental controls (as if you couldn't pick up a custom DoH with a blocklist, use routers with firewalls, so on)... of course, if that was their ONLY (true) concern, this wouldn't be an issue
@ScottMortimer so it's a legal requirement for isps to block copyright infringing material, but blocking child porn is just a normal that most isps follow? Great job there UK
@ScottMortimer pissing off the right people
@ScottMortimer My ISP Andrews and Arnold donated the ISPA membership fee to the Mozilla Foundation over this: https://mobile.twitter.com/aaisp/status/1146803916853645314
@ScottMortimer At least Mozilla is doing some things right.
@ScottMortimer there are valid criticisms of DNS-over-HTTPS, but this isn’t one of them 😁.
@ScottMortimer But from a brief readthrough, DOH is awesome, and should absolutely be legal?!
@ScottMortimer DNS over HTTPS (which Android 9 already supported, but I guess Google is too powerful to make an enemy of) is the ray of hope against heavy-handed government #censorship and #surveillance in Indonesia and many countries. No wonder some ISPs are worried, given how much they want to get into the #surveilancecapitalism game themselves
@ScottMortimer Governments being angry because of improved security is my jam!
@ScottMortimer imagine what they will call them when they include handshake protocol addresses!
