Well, the only thing that AOL-Time Warner would need to sew up domination of the Internet would be a few good porn sites.

Can't see that happening.

Do you folks know why there are still independent videostores? Do you wonder why Blockbuster hasn't driven them all out of business? It's because Blockbuster, in its devotion to the "moral highground," refuses to rent or sell adult movies. This is why you can find adult content at every local videostore.

Long live Internet samizdat!
