Millions of letters to many people throughout the whole of France, not just this 1 guy

This guy was just the first who got "disconnected" under the Hadopi law.

if they're going to allow emails etc then it's not disconnection and i recommend a re-word in the Hadopi Law because it almost sounds like the stuff in the bible..

where god's commandment says: "Thou Shall Not Kill"..

but still the merciful loving God allowed moses to drown thousands of egyptian. (thou shall not kill, but i'm still going to allow you to kill for whatever reason).

yee, we'll disconnect you from the Internet for 2 weeks but you can still use the Internet for Voip and Email.

what kind of disconnection is that? LOL.
