    Except it's not exactly as though we don't have title ii utilities already, and we're not all living in concentration camps as a result.

    Only when you start posting like an adult. If you want to discuss net neutrality, this attitude of yours is not going to make that happen. Stop extrapolating everything to absolutes, stop making **** up that other people never said.

    Why does it need to be portrayed as the extreme of a concentration camp?

    I'd be willing to bet that in your life you have also found some government doings to be not quite what you expected or wanted, so I'm failing to understand your defending of the secrecy. If it's so benign, why not just put the specifics out there... and maybe have some public debate prior to the vote?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It's not "total secrecy," it's a utility. We have utilities...they're not new.

    And in case you haven't been paying attention, extremes are the raison d'ętre of these threads.

    Circles back to my original question: If it's so benign, why not opt for full and open disclosure instead?

    I'm not generally a fan of , "If you have nothing to hide..." arguments/questions, but sometimes they are apt. This is an example of where the it would be apt.

    Unfortunately true. Doesn't mean we need to accept them or lower ourselves to their use. I prefer to call them out instead, as they have no legitimate purpose, and only serve to muddy the discussion.

    Otherwise why keep it all so secret?

    What was the rationale for that?

    Why couldnt there be a debate on the topic?

    What i am seeing is an agency of the federal government, basically rewriting regulations with no congressional oversight

    Something about that scares the bejeezus out of me.....i am surprised it doesnt to more people

    I guess once they actually release the whole thing, we can dissect it and find out if you are right....no surprises

    Or those of us who distrust government are.....big and bad surprises
    You want Congress involved because they know so much about the internet? They are lucky if they can tie their shoes in the morning. This is a matter for the FCC not the lobbyist tainted Congress.

    Summary: You couldn't find a post in 4 years on DP where you railed against a regulation. Thank you for proving me right.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
