Lost interest about 25 seconds in...Sorry!

I guess global warming, gas prices, Real Estate, the Economy, Unemployment, and so many other thing just seems more important than this...

Re: Net Neutrality

Even if this goes through, I very much doubt it would be that long before someone just sets up new providers that work as they do now. A lot of people advertise on the internet and this would hurt them, so there is money behind a new internet being set up in place of one that people had no interest in using.

Breaking people off what they are used to is such a huge pain, even if it is something better. Considering this is already viewed quite negatively, the odds of this going through is unlikely. At least one service provider would realize that not going through with it would give them all the business of people that want net neutrality. It would mess with the internet being fractured, but it isn't something that can't be rebuilt.

Re: Net Neutrality

I don't see it happening, especially since I know many people that would be very angry and the hackers (not exploiters >_<) would just make their own isp and mess with comcast's

I know the same thing happened to TV, I wasn't alive then but I know tv use to be like you pay for cable you get the channels, then they decided to make packages where you had to pay extra for certain channels.

Re: Net Neutrality

WHAT THE ****!!! It would be ridiculous to do something like this. The amount of knowledge I have aquired from the internet in about 3-4 years is probably about 80% of the knowledge I have aquired from 10 years of education.(I going to be in 11th grade in August) I could see somebody getting murdered over this. That chick did have nice tits, but when I think of the world without Jemsite, projectguitar, how to fix my computer sites, etc, It really pisses me off.
