    The small government/laissez faire crowd fear mongers 24/7 about everything. Every legislation is an end of the Republic as we know it every year is the verge of a global financial meltdown.

    Hopefully the new rules will give ISP's the opportunity to block repeat DDOS offenders.

    Net Neutrality Goes Into Effect

    My biggest fear is that now that the FCC has their foot in the door, they'll eventually impose decency standards and censorship on the internet like they do on radio and television. I hope that never happens, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit. You probably want to be careful what you wish for when the FCC and government is involved.

    Lol. I'll keep laughing. It's election time, so you'll need a wedge issue. However, this is NOT the one you want to pick.

    If you havent already you can read the entire 400 pages of rulings by the FCC where they unilaterally declared that they have the power to regulate the internet.

    http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Rele...CC-15-24A1.pdf

    Not a court, or a democratically chosen body, but a bunch of bureaucrats. But anyway, its too late. The internet is now under the observation of the US govt and theyve come to help. Expect higher prices, stifled innovation, and govt monopolies.
    What timeframe of that not happening will be required for you to admit you were wrong? A month? Six? A year?

    Incidentally, I did read their 400 page document and it's not doing anything remotely resembling the OP's fears.

    I'm making a prediction based on experience. You disagree with it. What is the point in calling you? If you can't see that the government normally makes things worse, then I can't help you see it.
