Spain's Proposed Internet Law Sparks Protest, Change

Slashidiot Re:Joer, tío! (103 comments)

I think most of the spanish blogs talking about this would love to have a comment as good as this one, even if it's badly written in spanish. Go ahead and do it. If the ideas are good, the form of the message doesn't really matter.

More airbags than most, ESP, etc. This car is also cheaper than a VW. For all this, it has been during several years the highest selling car in most of europe. For those who don't have the pleasure to know it:
