"Legal" and "threats" vary by country. For example, if you post your beer marinated bacon recipe along with a comment that maybe Russia should have another choice than Putin and his sock puppet, you've probably broken the laws in quite a few countries and made one "threat". Should there be sanctions against you (or JimRob) for posting that, or should it solely be the responsibility of the viewer?
But I bet the bigger reason for this push is not to limit access to information, but to put the squeeze on companies like Google to pay a toll on each country's internet connection.
Okay—at least what you are saying is making sense, in a way.
I guess we are just too used to freedom.....
Screw ‘em all!
