As usual, your poor reading comprehension is handicapping you. Enki appears unconcerned by the new FCC rules. I favor net neutrality. Neither of us favors "ObamaNet", whatever that is. What I favor is the classification of broadband Internet as a telecommunications service and the preservation of content neutrality. Traffic should not be throttled based on content nor should preferential access fees be legal.


I am not unconcerned, I just think that the hysteria has obscured the mundane details.


The sad thing is you will never know what it is you are missing. The thing about the internet even with all the conspiracy theory idiots is that it leveled the playing field IN THE US. In other places it did that to a much lessor extent. In Brazil for example you are not even allowed to have an internet connection let alone a web site without a license. The end of network neutrality even if they claim it is not the end is a huge loss of person liberty Free speech liberty, economic liberty, and ultimately the right to life and pursuit of happiness. I honestly think you can not even comprehend what I am saying here. But understand this with the loss of network neutrality, the game is rigged from here on out. The possibilities for what you and your child can do in your lives have been greatly restricted. And you won't even know any better that that you are missing them.

Thank You VERY MUCH for your post, Doc.

In Brazil for example you are not even allowed to have an internet connection let alone a web site without a license.


Didn't know that...... :shock:

Wonder who else who is allegedly free does that...

Reminds me a bit of what HAM radio was like at one time....

Then do you need to have a license for a smart phone?

Fascinating times! Those who attain power and wish to retain power always fear losing control over the flow of information/propaganda!

Those who are in power today must fear social media and communication technology more than almost any other potential "threat."
