    But as I said above, equally as bad as ISPs controlling things, is the government having control of the internet. As seen by Europe and Venezuela.

     1) Net Neutrality doesn't mean the government controls the internet; it helps keep the internet free from the meddling of govt or companies.
    2) Europe and Venezuela are nothing alike. I can only assume that you have been listening to too much Fox and Friends or similar propaganda.
    I have one warning on me for last statement I made about NN. How can mods allow this topic to go on and allow only one side? There is no way to show what he said is wrong other than getting political.


    That is how liberals work.  Silence all opposition.  Why do you think most dictators starts from liberal governments.

    Anyone against Title 2 Net Neutrality because "it's government control" - never read Title 2 and is only parroting what they heard other conservatives say. If you are against Net Neutrality then you are against the people.

    Great Googly Moogly people like @holdenfive make me embarrassed to be a (currently lapsed) Republican. Between 4Chan, Breitbart and Alex Jones I swear people are being paid to act this stupid.

    Yes the Alt-Left is just as bad I know. Trust me.

    On-topic: At this point I don't know how big this will really be in the long term. Seems we will have a few years to see any outcome.

    Service providers are treading very lightly to avoid backlash on this. That will be enough to delay fine print contract changes for a long while. 

    And I'm in the boat with you on the sports team madness needs to stop. 
    It's like they stopped teaching civics in schools all of the sudden and everyone is just jumping on bandwagons "I'm right" "I'm left" Who cares? Everyone is treating everything as it must have an opposite. It's misinformed and ill educated non-sense. 
    I put little faith in any business to not try to screw over the consumer but I do think that ISP's aren't going to go all 1984-censorship-is-golden on us. I'm OK with paying more for better service but will not stand for any censoring of what content I want to browse. I'm lucky though because I have at least 3 choices for ISP's in my area. Those even more rural areas than me (god help you :/) will have it worse.

    Yes, Black and/versus White is all that is being parroted nowadays. No Grey areas anymore unless you are talking about Dulce Base of course!
    If you are against censorship then you must be infuriated by what Google, Youtube, Twitter and Facebook are doing, or are you only against certain things being 'censored', wrong think is a thing if you believe or are a fan of CNN, MSNBC, Huff post etc. that is.
    I am against ALL censorship of personal views, full stop. Anywhere. On any platform. Even ones I don't use like Twitter and Facebook.

    I am not Alt-anything. But I believe you should be able to post your Alt-bullshit far and wide. Yes it sucks that too many Americans believed the Alt-right bullshit and voted for a guy that should have only been able to sleep in the WH after donating to a SuperPAC. But so it goes. The price of freedom.

    EDIT: Did I evoke my own Law? Surely not after 21 pages.

    Bartoni's Law definition: As an Internet discussion grows volatile, the probability of a comparison involving Donald Trump approaches 1.

    Kind of assume the nickel and dime approach is what's going to happen for the most part, outside of express things that may be more readily influenced like cryptocurrencies.

    Bit too speculative of a problem and full of "what if" scenarios right now for me to say how much of an issue the repeal is or will be, but I do believe it's fundamentally a problem.

    Why are/were so many dictators bolstered by U.S. governments?

    I was watching Libertarianism debating why net neutrality is a good thing.

    Me personally I think net neutrality won't even bother most people because large corporation will pay for fast lane anyway.  And most people don't use that much bandwidth that they'll need to pay extra.  For heavy internet users, they'll probably be the one affected.

    Do people like this exist in real life or is it RP?
