    You were unable to do so. Instead, you had to go to North Korea to find an example.

    You still wont pay up. Everyone knows you're not honest enough. $100, it was your own bet. Pay to this forum's operations. A man of his word would do so. Are you such a man?
    I was obviously being rhetorical. No need for personal attacks.

    Which is why the government needs to be seriously neutered.

    I'm just a lowly commoner, so I don't have time to intimately familiarize myself with the grandiose visions of DNC elitists and loyalists, but if i misunderstand "net neutrality", then it's because the FCC was keeping their "net neutrality" regulations a secret from the public until after the five bureaucrats voted down partisan lines to fundamentally alter the regulatory relationship between the federal government and the "internet".

    But what do you mean by "they pay for it"? Do you know how much they should be paying for it? What's the magic number or rate that Comcast or other ISP's should be allowed to charge Netflix for X bytes/second? Maybe if there had been some kind of broader engagement with ordinary Americans by the insular and secretive Obama administration, there wouldn't be so many unanswered questions from regular joes like me.

    Simply not true. They've been one of the biggest supporters of so-called "net neutrality", so they clearly had SOMETHING to do with it.

    I've given up explaining it.

I'm pretty sure you know the difference.

    YOu are playing games. If you read back the reference was in regards to the netflix/comcast issue which is ofthen used incorrectly as a "net neutrality" argument
