    Re: Do you support Net Neutrality?

    I don't think I've ever been as personally annoyed by the results of a DP poll as I am right now. The results shouldn't be 80% to 20%, but 99% to 1%, and that 1% should be made up exclusively of isp shareholders and upper management. This is how I've come to define politics: the art of selling a terrible idea to the public in such a way that it has the people arguing against their own interests.

    I believe that everyone who voted "no" are trolling me. And by "me" I don't mean people who hold my position on this topic, I mean me...personally.

    So you don't believe should have a different opinion about this topic? Why are you so emotionally invested in the idea that you need to be right?

    I didn't vote at all because there is no middle option. I support the concept, but I don't trust the government to pull it off without somehow sticking me with more costs and restrictions of their own. Replacing one bad for another is not necessarily progress, or proper protection.

    Well we could have just stuck with the previous FCC regulation, but Verizon successfully sued the FCC which means another way has to be found to preserve NN. If you can think of another way to get NN back besides reclassifying internet service as a utility, I'm all ears.

    I don't normally hold this kind of position, but no. Unless you have a specific stake in the profitability of an isp, there is no conceivable reason to be against NN.

    If you witnessed a sizable portion of the public arguing in favor of turning everyone over thirty into mulch, you'd be emotionally wrapped up too.

    I like the internet the way that it's been since I started using it.

    I also like free beer.

    I am against it because I don't believe the FCC should have that kind of power and I don't trust the current administration to use technology wisely. Nobody should after the Obamacare website debacle.

    Caveat. Not having a background in network engineering I don't know that that is technically the best way to run a network which may also complicate the picture.
    I agree with you. But the country does not need a brand new bureaucracy, All that's needed is one simple law, and you just wrote it.

    Government intervention in net neutrality could well lead to net favoritism. A favored group decides that it is not getting enough face time, and government is suddenly into controlling content.

    Again, you haven't stated which "net neutrality" you are speaking of.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.
    Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful, but hate me all the more.

    The FCC had that kind of power and we were fine. What is guaranteed is that the end of NN would be bad for you. Speaking out against government abuse while being completely cavalier about corporate abuse is illogical.
