    It's mostly politics and if Obama is for it then they are against it.

    The fact that ISP's are so vehemently opposed to this decision should say it all.
    Because all corporations are evil and all government is good?

    We don't even know what got voted on today except that it is a huge piece of regulation of an industry that has absolutely exploded over the past two decades primarily because it was free and relatively unregulated. We also know that the reason given for the "need" to regulate it was, specifically, that freedom which had allowed it to expand.

    Why is it that liberals hate freedom so much?

    Today's decision was meant to keep the status quo. If you're happy with the way the internet is now, you should be happy with today's decision.

    that was my major question

    we know the fcc was proposing new rules

    yet, they kept it all very secret until todays vote

    why?

    what is in there that they didnt want the public to know about?

    and why werent the proposed changes up for debate to the general public before voting?

    is this another "we have to pass it to find out what is in it" kind of bill?

    god, i hope not

    thats not true.. this opens the door for endless regulation and different pricing and usage that was free in the past to be chargable..

    again.. why it better?
