Hobo TRAVEL TIPS - Koh Pha Ngan Thailand - TIP Is the Hotel Clean
I wrote my newsletter from Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand an island in southern Thailand. I was almost finished, yet needed to check out of my dive hotel at 11:00. Since the hotel had no common area I wondered around for a few hours until the boat left for Koh Samui.
I finally finished the letter in the Koh Samui airport lounge, just before I left for Bangkok on the Bangkok Airlines flight.
I did not receive a copy of my own email newsletter, I am amazed at the amount of decisions that are being made by the telephone companies, hosting companies, and NON governmental type companies on what is allowed to be sent.
I am annoyed and feel a violation of my civil rights is happening when I cannot guarantee a letter or email sent from one location on the planet to another will actually make it there, because some power that be decides for me. I cannot guarantee I can send to myself!
Choice are being made by people that are not correct.
If email is to one day become a priority mail, the regulations need to be developed, that also say and demand what types of emails must go through.
All the big telephone companies, host, and emails service companies have become the censors. People complain about the governments, yet in reality, it is better to have an open, public ally accountable government perform this, rather than Verizon, or Yahoo.com, Google.com or the thousands of other self appointed censors.
Even in my own company decisions are made on what and cannot enter, I am aware of my own weakness in this matter, how do we allow all emails to be sent, yet somehow stop the unscrupulous senders of emails.
In the end, there is a need to allow more and stop less, otherwise the rights of the one, are violated for the sake of the whole.
Rules made without extreme testing are a limit to freedoms.
