As much as I like the Netherlands (living here from 2006, I'm Italian), these inconsistencies in their systems are really annoying[^1]. Net neutrality, ACTA rejection on one side, blocking web sites on the other.
[^1]: I won't mention the other kind of inconsistencies, but if you really curious about some health care system madness, I encourage you to readhttp://blog.lanzani.nl/2011/doctors/
In this case the judge has decided that TPB mostly facilitates illegal downloading and that therefore a block is allowed.
This is a, technically, correct decision because the net neutrality law gives judges enough room to block websites.
[I read your blog entry, sorry to hear about your knee but otherwise I find your story single sided and your statement that doctors get money for not helping is so crude and slander-like that it needs citation, in my opinion - if it were not for the fact that I have to email you to comment on the post I would have placed this part of my reaction over there.]
[As for the doctors: for what regards the money, this is what I've heard. Of
course there will be nothing official but: I know 2 (!) persons who died of
uncured cancer, because Dutch doctors just told them to take pain killers (not
kidding). Then I know other 2 (we were close) that had to go to their home
countries to get the cancer cured, because here the doctors told them to wait a
couple of weeks. Once home their doctors hospitalized them immediately, saying
that further delays would have killed them. A PhD student from Russia, also
here in the Netherlands, emailed me after reading my blog post, because the
same happened to his knee and the doctor didn't want to treat him. My
mother-in-law had kidney stones, and what did the doctor say? Drink some warm
milk. She had to fight 3 days to be sent to the hospital. I'm here since 2006,
but I already met so many people who where shocked by the incompetence of
Dutch doctors, that I could write for hours. The entry in my blog reflects some
facts happened directly to me or my family.]
