Sure wish edgy whiny people and creeps would get off the fucking site
Sure, that's fine. Please keep it civil though; don't be like the "you're all just capitalist machine hating communist google and facebook cheerleaders and you should be ashamed of yourselves for having an opinion different than mine" guy. At least you came into the conversation with insight and knowledge, he just popped in to be an ignorant jackass >.<
Hey, I'm really sorry I took so long getting back to you. I literally just sat down to relax after going since 8 this morning. I'm sorry to ask, but can we postpone the net neutrality discussion until the weekend? I honestly just wanna eat dinner, chill and play some Splatoon for a while. I'll send you a friend request and get back to you on Saturday, okay?
No no, I dont think you're a shill at all. I actually think your credentials are very impressive. I apologize if Im coming off as disrespectful; Im at work and typing all these up on my cellphone. So I gotta be quick about it on a pain in the ass medium. Wait for me to get home in a few hours and we can have a real discussion on this, okay? I actually am very interested in hearing what you have to say and maybe even learning something from you, as you might be more knowledgeable about the underlying systems than me.
Other countries dont need it because they have working free markets, thus ISPs have competition. Here, many places in the country only have access to one ISP. Regional monopolies are becomming more and more widespread. Without federal restrictions (Title 2 rulings), they can do whatever they want because what are you gonna do? Get your internet from someone else? Oh wait, you can't.
Actually, I tried looking for a source on the Comcast thing recently. Everything about it was gone. Im at work right now, so Ill look for this stuff when I get home tonight. Honestly, its rare for anything involving net neutrality to ever get any kind of headlines, so it can be hard to dig this stuff up long after the fact. Ive been watching this stuff ever since SOPA. I've been arguing with people about it for years. Im just... tired of it.
Dont think of it like a blacklist system. Think of it more like a white list system. They dont have to block crap individually, they can just give a pass to what they want, put almost everything else in the "one middle finger" group, put things they dont like in the "two middle finger" extra slow group, and specify some others they REALLY dont like in the "deluxe package fuck you" blocked group. Not too hard to implement or operate (Im a software developer specializing in databases and information systems). As for proof of the other stuff, verizon was testing this crap back in May/June iirc and the comcast thing was given very little publicity and also happened a while ago.
you fear russia
Hate their government, indifferent about the people.
I have no idea, that boi is far before my time, but not far enough to be taught in school ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Accepted so you can speak to me directly if you wished.
Well you know you're not going to get answers from the mods/admin...
