The time to act to stop this shit is now. We should start signing petitions and having an uproar. This isn't the first time we've had to deal with this bullshit, and it sure as hell won't be the last. There will be more bullshit acts like SOPA and PIPA trying to crop up, but we need to fight all of them, because these idiots don't understand how the internet works. Its not a fucking landline you rich old white fuckers, so many businesses even rely on an open and free internet. You do that and you're killing jobs.


Let me say this now, I actually regret voting for Trump. I really do, but I sure as fuck wasn't going to vote for Hillary. Even if I didn't vote for him he still would have won and I would have felt better about myself for not getting involved, instead I'm fucking kicking myself for it.

So the only way to stop making another fucking mistake is to not get involved in my case. I'm done with the game of politics and I want my internet to remain open and free so fucking cucks like Trump won't touch it.

Sign below the dotted line of this post if you agree that we need to save Net Neutrality and stop this bullshit from happening once again.

If Trump is undoing everything Obama did that can't be a bad thing.

You do know that if Net Neutrality dies for good this website goes under with it right?

This is why I'm against it.

I didn't like him at first but he brings up good points. Net neutrality is like TTIP. Everyone says it's a good thing but no one knows what it is. The name is misleading, it's a government regulation.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Tell me this - why cant the internet stay the way it is now?

ISPs are mad that more and more people are choosing to stream on stuff like Netflix and Amazon than register for their overpriced tv packages I think.

Competition. The cornerstone of capitalism. So instead of adapting, they are just trying to shove their greedy money-lubed cocks into the internet? They can fuck right off.

This is such a weak argument. Exploring and managing the legal aspects of technology is what I do for a living. I'm pretty confident that I know more about net neutrality than 99% of people on here and elsewhere, and that definitely includes the likes of these people over at Infowars. The name is not at all misleading. It's regulating the few companies in charge of providing internet services to protect the actual people relying on them. There's nothing inherently wrong with government regulation. This argument makes as little sense as going "b-but requiring companies not to put literal poison in your food or cancer in your walls is not a good thing because it's government regulation and it limits freedom". Fuck that bullshit. Regulation is good and necessary in many areas. This is one of them.

Because money. The internet has gone through quite a few changes recently with streaming exploding, IoT growing and more new businesses / technologies shaking things up. Some ISP's and big companies want to keep their de facto monopoly. With tech changing, they increasingly started to explore things like throttling. Activists and the people in general didn't really like that, so net neutrality laws started popping up (praise be to the EU, as always, for contributing much to this). In the US, this caught on later in 2015 after some scandals showed that the previous "lite" policies from 2010 were ineffecient and gutted by courts in 2014.

Net Neutrality was supported by Obama, the entire Democratic Party and many electronic rights and freedom groups. In 2015, it became part of the FCC regulations which made it binding to the happiness of many. Throttling and discrimination of internet traffic became illegal and was actually enforced as such.

And then people voted for Trump, a man who explicitly said he opposed net neutrality. Arguably the most bought, anti-consumer and self-serving corporate businessman president the country has ever had. Trump was elected and followed through with his negative comments on net neutrality. As expected by many, he listened to his big business peers and quickly appointed a notorious anti-net neutrality lawyer (who used to work for Verizon and does their bidding, surprise surprise) to head the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Fast forward just a few weeks and there you go - plans to repeal net neutrality protection were introduced to the public.

Things are looking up for big business and their predatory practices while the everyday person and smaller company gets to pay the price. Just as advertised, really. Thanks Trump.

Censorship has definitely seen a rapid increase on Google, Facebook, Twitter since 'Net Neutrality', was implemented in 2015. The internet was definitely more free before Obama-era regulations were passed. It's just funny to see reaction of regulation under the dems being reversed.

Not usually a fan of political cartoons but this one does tell it like it is (lol). I'm shocked by how many people who support(ed) Trump are now regretting it or jumping on the "well I didn't want THAT to happen" train. These weren't some minor subtle hints. It wasn't the "liberal mainstream media" trashing him and exaggerating stuff. The man literally called Obama supporting net neutrality an "attack on the internet" and a "top down power grab", and then later pledged to eliminate "intrusive regulations". Same goes for so much of the other stuff he said.

The worst part is Net Neutrality has a few shitty issues that really stick out, and the same is true if it were gone. The monopolies right now are currently shit, that much is true

but having a level playing field is also a plus

The time to act to stop this shit is now. We should start signing petitions and having an uproar. This isn't the first time we've had to deal with this bullshit, and it sure as hell won't be the last. There will be more bullshit acts like SOPA and PIPA trying to crop up, but we need to fight all of them, because these idiots don't understand how the internet works. Its not a fucking landline you rich old white fuckers, so many businesses even rely on an open and free internet. You do that and you're killing jobs.

A level playing field is supposed to be about equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome. In a fair competition, all sides have an equal starting point and and equal amount of opportunity afforded to them by law, but obviously life isn't fair, so not everyone gets an equal starting point. However, we all have the same basic human rights and the freedom to pursue our goals (as long as they don't infringe upon the rights of others).

It's true that if we were all slaves we would have equality, but I don't necessarily believe Luciana is one to advocate for equality above all else.
