None so far, it's been on the frontpage for a few hours

A new record, up from the previous 3 minutes.

Well, color me surprised. Maybe the awfulness is so obvious even Reddit moderators can see it.

I just checked and oddly enough yeah, there are some things on the front page including an ELI5 post. There's no simplified version of it yet though. I think that's one reason that there hasn't been so much traction against it even though we can now see it all. The vast majority of people don't understand it. When you can say what it does in layman's terms then you'll get people deciding they don't like the sound of that and are willing to do something about it.

The problem is that it is a large document that affects a lot of different aspects of society.I think it will be kind of difficult to explain it succinctly.

"It lets entertainment megacorps sue governments if they don't like that country's copyright laws."
That should give people the general idea.

(source: "What this means is that companies could sue any of the TPP nations for introducing rules that they allege harm their right to exploit their copyright interests")

No real objections to TPP over there.

Campaign season is underway full bore now that a GOP candidate has pulled in front of the Dem candidate in national polling. Reddit has gone into full coordinated-marketing mode. Nothing political/international is staying up that isn't straight out of Democratic party establishment talking points. And the front page might as well be managed by the White House spokesperson.

That's what I noticed too. The vibe is that TPP is okay - not too grate and not too bad, no uproar no nothing, just let's bend over and pleasantly talk about this shit while the TPP cock is nearing the asshole.

Moreover, for every skeptic there is someone who justifies the point.

Can't wait til someone makes a TL;DR for the TPP . I'm no lawyer so I can't make heads or tails of it

Well, I haven't read through the full thing, but I did read the entire IP chapter when it got leaked a month or so ago. I'll just cut and paste my summary I gave to someone else here:

Yes, I did read it. See this thread here https://voat.co/v/technology/comments/575305 in which I and several others analyze just how fucked up it actually is.

Or see here for more analysis https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/10/final-leaked-tpp-text-all-we-feared

Or here https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20151009/16061032488/wikileaks-releases-final-intellectual-property-chapter-tpp-before-official-release.shtml and here https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20151012/17380532517/us-australia-canada-decide-screw-over-poor-nations-because-big-pharmas-not-happy-with-tpp.shtml

Those links should be a good start on the IP section, although I still need to check if it changed from what was leaked. Obviously, with the full finalized shitshow available now, we should see more horrifying shit and analysis of such soon. Even the IP chapter is horrifying enough though.

It's something like 6000 pages long, so the TL;DR would be like 1000 pages long.

This is the first I heard of it, so I just spent some time looking through the front page as well as a number of tech related subs and haven't seen a thing about the TPP.

How did you manage to block it in your hosts? I tried editing my hosts file, but https bypasses that, so I kept accidentally going there.

[–] Fambida [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

um, I added

127.0.0.1 reddit.com

127.0.0.1 np.reddit.com

and that was that. I've never even heard of https ignoring a hosts file...

edit: got the format backwards, checked actual hosts on windows box and corrected.

I think you're right and that I must have been formatting it incorrectly - I tried (with my presumably incorrect format), found it didn't work, and then slightly mis-interpreted the results I found when googling (at the time I thought they said it doesn't work on ssl connections, now I see that they were saying you can't exclusively target ssl connections)

Hmm, I added what you wrote to my hosts file, and then clicked on a link that went to reddit. Unfortunately, it took me to reddit.

[edit] Problem solved - I also needed a www.reddit.com entry (though I would have hoped that blocking a domain would also block all sub-domains)
