And now we have one of our own.
For non spanish-speaking users: It's basically a "Telecommunications Law" proposed by our beloved "president" Enrique Peña Nieto.
One of it's articles: article 145 establishes that:
"concessioned(?) and authorized groups that borrow internet service can block access to certain content, applications or services at a explicit request from a user, the user being an authority or someone affected by it"
It's basically Mexico's version of SOPA, but this one it's harder to beat because of the current goverment corruption that can approve laws almost at the drop of a hat, and this scares me because it can make Facebook and Youtube illegal, heck, i think even SMWC could be considered illegal.
EDIT: Forgot to mention article 197, which allows them to: "Temporally block or jam telecommunications signals in places or events critical for public and national security at the request of competent authorities"

Which basically gives them the right to temporarily disable your internet access for shits and giggles? Sounds like my power provider.

Yes, the "shits and giggles" being situations where police abuse and protests are being streamed and almost everyone can see what kind of brutalities they commit, in those cases, if the law is aproved, they can just block internet access and leave everyone in the dark about what is going on.
So is this the cause of Werevertumorro and Yuya to leave? Being honest, I've never heard of this considering that I live in Mexico.

That's why they never talk about it, the less people that find out, the less fuss that will ensue and therefore it will be too late to even protest about, and here is where it comes the "aprove laws at the drop of a hat" thing, since people in charge of aproving laws won't even know what they're aproving.
Holy fudge. Good thing I use VPN so they won't know what I'm doing when I visit Mexico.
An i'm happy to anounce that this is getting recognition from other countries!, we may have a chance to stop it now!
Old news are old, but now they want to censor Videogames as well!!
