    Don't feel lonely. I've been confused from the start. However, I know that when government gets involved, it's usually a bad thing.

    I agree. And from your article I think we can all agree on the ending paragraph....


    Excessive government regulation can stifle innovation, but a lack of intervention could turn the Internet into a wild west where Comcast, Verizon and other ISPs create fast tracks for some content while making it impossible for Internet users to access other websites. We need to find the right balance of net neutrality regulation that keeps the web open but doesn't restrict the impressive innovations that have contributed to the rise of Facebook, Google and thousands of web startups.

    With that said, I guess the question is do we trust the FCC as it is made up now to do this?

    Can't we just leave the internet alone? If I pay for internet access, I should be able to access all of the internet, not just the websites the provider says I can access.
