just typed out a whole rant on it, but it had blacklisted words, and i don't really have the patience to try and think about the wording i used.
long story short: i see both sides of it, but i want my internet to be open and free, and i do not want companies to be charging me more based on what websites i use, or how often. now to doublecheck this mini-rant for blacklisted words before i click submit again....
i think i'm good this time....
how the hell does a TooL page NOT allow certain words? isn't that a form of censorship???
Seems to fit the bill if you ask me!!! I had this issue a couple months ago and of course it was a somewhat lengthy post that it decided to just delete for me...f u c k i n g a n a l c r a m m i n g m a s t u r b a t o r s
So the FCC repealed Net neutrality, does this have an immediate impact? I don't really understand it, living all the way over here in Australia. From what I do gather though I think this could change the shape of the internet, considering America is probably one of the bigger markets. I'd be pissed if I were American
Yes, The doom and gloom answer it that the ISP's can throttle bandwidth and content. This could manifest in corporate censorship of free thinking organizations such as this. They can get away with it because it's "Not Blocked" just slowed down to a ridiculous level so it is unbearable to get the content from the outlets that they do not agree with. This will force the consumer to decide which ISP has the stuff I want at the speed I want, or I have to pay more for it, or I have to subscribe to several ISP's to get all the content I want at the speeds I want. So you pay one ISP for Netflix, another for MSN, and a third for DailyGrail...
Free speech dies, and ISP's win.
True irony is Tool fans begging on their knees to suck Uncle Sam's pole piece for government to regulate freedom. The problem isn't that we need a government regulation making ISP's deal fairly. The problem is that the government has already established regulations that facilitate regional monopolies.
Intentions hit the nail on the head here
I feel like it was repealed so that investment firms can offer bribes to isps for unthrottled connections. Supercomputers trade stocks using algorithms, and 1milisecond less latency than the competitor could be worth billions. Basically Biff(trump) stole the almanac from the future.
The first time I posted I posted a life story, then, I thought I'd add a picture of the Opiate album cover- the website REPLACED my life story with the Opiate cover- which ended up being my post. They really didn't think through for us on this one.
because of that, I'll only use this as a random board, there's no impetus to make it important anymore!
