    Elaborate? The net neutrality rules are based on the idea that end users pay for bandwidth not content providers.

    It IS second or third tier and those speeds would be fine. You would probably end up paying LESS since your need would dictate your cost. My dad who only does email pays the same as me who downloads a gigabyte of video every day. Great for me, sucks for him.

    Figures when you're little weak defense is chopped you resort to personal snide commentary. I judge that to be a white flag of surrender. just remember when the FCC starts cracking down on political speech, YOU cheered it's inception on. Baa Baa like the good sheep you were, and then you will wail and wonder how it all went wrong.

    i don't agree that a non-neutral net would be exactly the same for this site long term. it was basically just a cop out plan the telecom companies cooked up to avoid having to build as much new infrastructure : use the existing infrastructure, but make even more money by giving the big guys a greater chunk of it. **** that.

    it's not just this site. without net neutrality, the next cool thing might not even happen. no way twitter and Facebook could have competed with Myspace if they couldn't afford to buy preferential treatment. do you want to be limited to whatever streaming movie, video, and music sites exist right now because startups can't afford to have their data on the top tier? i don't.

    piss and moan about it all you want. call your representative, and tell him or her to pass a clean bill for net neutrality. or just sit around and post angry things on the internet on a site that can't afford preferential data treatment.

    i missed your answer to my question about the timeframe in which you believe that you will be prevented from bitching incessantly about the government. a year? five years? i was hoping to narrow it down so that we can revisit this point when you're allowed to complain about the government on this site as long as the site exists.

    Sine we do not really know what all is in the new rules, I think we should wait and
    see what the rules actually say.
    Sir that's ridiculous. Democrats did it, therefore I either oppose it or support it depending on who I voted for in the last election. The American way.

    personally, i would have preferred NN to be legislated rather than regulated like the phone system in the 1930s. perhaps that might still happen, but i really doubt it.

    Net neutrality doesn't prevent different price structures for different download volumes. Yet again, we see the people against net neutrality often misunderstand what it is.

    Yes. Many conservatives have this idea that the government doing something is inherently bad.

    Government is made up of people. It is only as flawed as the people making the decisions. Which, incidentally, isn't any different from any other entity.
