Father Nemo Needs A VPN Service
Father Nemo (all of them) thanks all of you for the invaluable help you are giving him. As the discussion about Father's Notebook goes on, he has asked me to ask you for input about VPN services.
Besides having a computer “clean” of “hackable” personal data, Father told me he considers a VPN a second indispensable line of defence. Possibly, in fact, even more indispensable than one's own dedicated blogging device. He will, in fact, construct the blog as an entirely foreign entity; say, if he is German, he could blog exclusively from blogs in Australia, and in English. This way, the German Gaystapo could not unleash the Gay Prosecutors against him, because last time I looked english was not covered by the German anti-freedom, SodoNazi laws, and German Faggot would first have to persuade the prosecutors the offender is from Germany. Still, even for a British or US Father Nemo a VPN is indispensable if he wants to protect himself from Google fags and other criminal perverts.
Father asks the following:
1. What are the best *free* VPN services. “Best” means here not “fast”, but giving an excellent level of protection, equal to or comparable to the one of the paying clients. If the service is slow or the choice of servers limited, so be it for Father Nemo; albeit Vater Niemand, the German, may want to have more flexibility.
Far more important is, for example, that the service does not store any data at all about him and his surfing activity, or that they are located in a jurisdiction that does not require them to store such data, much less make them available to the government (I do not mean prosecutors of a Free Country here; I mean the police of less free ones, like Belarus, or Germany).
2. What are the best *paid* services. Father has no problem paying his $50 or so a year, but he is more worried about the VPN service having his own data and identity. Possibly an excessive worry, but still…
This leads us to Father's next question
3. Which services you would recommend, that can be paid with bitcoins.
(Alas, Father knows nothing of Bitcoin; this is for another day).
Now we must consider this, that Father Nemo lives in a Western Country; but he also lives in Countries like Cuba, Hong Kong, or mainland China. He might live in a Country where speed connection is suboptimal, or the Internet heavily monitored. His VPN must therefore be as anonymous as possible, but at the same time reliable.
Ideally, the worthy commenter should have two Fathers in mind: Father Nemo, located in, say, UK, and Padre Nemo, located in Cuba, or Venezuela. Vater Niemand – the German priest – should be seen as nearer to Padre if he plans to ruffle the feather of the German, or Austrian, Gaystapo. Which he obviously should, at least in English.
Father Nemo might, importantly, be located in the Vatican, and the factual disappearance of pageviews from Vatican servers after I mentioned that I receive visits from there tells you a lot about the climate over there.
Waiting for your valuable input, Father Nemo thanks you heartily.
