    I was talking about a very narrow aspect of the whole custome v soul sucking corporation who loathe it’s customers, relationship. The telcos will still continue he to name their customer “whore”, “a-hole”, etc.. The telcos,will,continue,to charge customers for stolen equipment that has been returned to the telco properly. The telcos will continue the over bill you month after month after month. The telcos will still continue to NOT show up for scheduled appointments.

    Don’t worry about that part of screwing over customers. That is still guaranteed.

    The rules/laws ALWAYS go to those who buy the most Congress Critters. That is true in everything.

    I prefer to get my info from multiple places. The ones that can put together a logical argument, rely on only one tired meme, and try to distract you concerning an argument, get the least attention from me. The comments in this thread is a GREAT example of that. There is ZERO informative arguments against Net Neutrality, other than “Government Bad”.

    Look at the experts in the field, and look where they get their money. Exclude the extremes, and you tend to find the most informative debate. There is ZERO debate here, only mud slinging.

    Im in here because I KNOW there are logical people who want to be more informed. If I can convince them to seek beyond the “Government Bad” mantra on this topic, then I think I am doing some good.

    Unthinkingly throwing out party talking points does little good. And this is a PERFECT example, IMHO.

    The internet is a set of protocols and agreements between interconnected networks. The ISPs were taking the fundamental underpinnings that the internet has been build upon for the last 30+ years, and they were chucking them out of the window. That is why there is such passion about this from the tech world. That is why the ONLY arguments against this that you will find here is “Don’t trust the Big Bad Government”.

    There is literally ZERO technical argument AGAINST Net Neutrality that you can find here. At best, you will get some lame excuse like “hurting the customer” from the ISPs. But there is nothing to back those claims up.

    The ISPs are fighting tooth and nail for the ability to deny giving you the information/services you request while use the ISP to access the internet.

    It is VERY easy to tell if the ISPs are inspecting the contents of the information/services you are requesting over their network, and blocking because they are competition to the Provider division of the same ISP.

    PLEASE dig deeper on this issue. Please don’t simply take “Big Bad Government” as the rote answer. This is a technical problem, look to technical sources for a more detailed explanation of this issue.

    Honestly, I would tend to agree. But there are numerous independent researchers tracking the games ISPs play. The most recent spat with netflix(see the graph I posted above), was easily defeated by the use of private VPN. Meaning, it wasn’t the netflix traffic that was “swamping” the ISPs, it was the ISPs identifying the source, and intentionally slowing the traffic down.

    Also, you are getting adequate netflix and amazon streaming now, because they are paying their blood money to the ISPs.

    I will point out the quote again. This is what the ISPs are paying good money to the GOP congress-criters to fight for, the ISPs “right” to prevent you from getting what you request on the ISP service you are paying for - “Just as a newspaper is entitled to decide which content to publish and where, broadband providers may feature some content over others”

    If by "screwing you over", you mean forcing the ISPs to allow the internet to work as it has for the last 30+ years, by forbidding the telcos to look at every piece of data coming through their networks an blocking anything that competes with the ISPs? Then yes, the feds will prevent the ISPs from blocking the content you request over the ISPs networks.

    HOW DARE THE BIG BAD GOVERNMENT DO THAT. THE ISPs SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BLOCK ANY AND ALL CONTENT TO THEIR CUSTOMERS, THAT THEY WANT!!!!

    Here is a nice quote from Verizon, as part of their lawsuit against the FCC in 2012 - "Just as a newspaper is entitled to decide which content to publish and where, broadband providers may feature some content over others"

    Yes, this is what you are fighting for. The right of the ISPs to block sending you information over the internet. PLEASE at least investigate the issue from a neutral site. You CANNOT get all your information here, as the anti-anything government sentiment around here is clouding a lot of people's ability to apply even the most simple logic to this whole issue

    How you clowns can be in favor of this is beyond me ...

    “Just as a newspaper is entitled to decide which content to publish and where, broadband providers may feature some content over others,” - Part of Verizon’s argument in the 2012 case.

    The ISPs want to examine EVERYTHING you access on the internet, and then THEY want to determine, in the ISPs best interests, if they are going to allow you to access the data or now.

    And you all are in favor of allowing that?

    Tell the telcos to stop sniffing each packet requested by their customers, and then slowing the info down/block it, if it is a competitor. You know, the way it’s been done for 30+ years. Real simple.

    But the telcos refuse to keep on adhering to the same protocols/processes that have made the Internet what it is today.

    Why aren’t you mad at the telcos for basically attempting to destroy the Internet, and forcing the governments hand?

    The only food for thought to,take away from this is that corporate America does not care to staff/fun their IT departments.

    It’s akin to the movies/TV shows where they show an Army Batallion only seconds away, when a nuke plant is being cases/attacked. There was just such a scene on the “Scorpions” TV show a couple weeks ago, but in reality, there is none.

    In this case, corporations knowingly go super cheap on IT security. This could literally happen at EVERY company in the US, because companies would rather spend more on art for corporate buildings than devote the money to IT Security.

    The more this stays in the news, the better chance for some CEO/President/Board of Directors/COO/etc... to actually ask the scary question of “How much are we spending on Cyber Security?” If the CTO has some balls, they would give the accurate answer - less than the price of your car, Mr CEO.

    Bwahahaha. What a bunch of garbage. It takes 1/2 the article to begin even citing the “outrageous” changes the FCC forced the telco’s to make. It takes the 1st 1/2 of the article to call Net Neutrality and the FCC “bad guys” a dozen different ways 1st.

    1) An ISP blocking competing services for their customers. The FCC came in and said “Uhhh, no. allow your consumers to get to the site/services they are trying to access.” And this is considered bad?

    2) The article proudly mentions that Mebane, North Carolina had FIVE broadband options, so having ONE totally bone it’s customers is A-OK, because there were four other providers. I know of NO real life place that has five broad band options in this country anymore. So touting the “solution” of multiple options, while simultaneously trying to actively remove competitors is the definition of hypocritical.

    3) Comcast and bittorrent. So there are a < 100 users who blew the roof off the comcast network. So what does comcast do? Instead of cutting off the 100 abusers, it effectively shut down bittorrent for it’s millions of customers. Yes, that doesn’t sound AT ALL like comcast would be using the 100 as an excuse to disable a competitive product at all. Right, Big Business/Anti-Consumer lovers?

    At that point, I gave up reading. The bending over backwards to excuse the anti-consumer arrogance was too much to take.

    In short, they can offer -- and charge -- what they want. That’s good for consumers, because it means that in order to compete, they’re always trying to win and keep customers by offering better, faster service at lower rates.

    ugh, no. That is NOT good for consumers. I pay for service that includes a quoted speed up and a quoted sped down, but in fine print the telcos will tell you to pound sand if you do not get these speeds - but that is another issue all together.

    What consumers want, though the GOP won't tell them, is for the telcos to take you to the site or service you attempt to access through this telco connect! that you are paying for.

    But what the telcos want to do, is deny you what you want by atificially slowing down your speeds, or downright blocking the site - because it competes with their own service. The telcos want to read EVERY BIT/BYTE you access on the Internet, and punish you for accessing sites and services that compete with their own.

    the Internet was born, has grown up with, and exploded in usefulness ALL BASED UPON the free flow of data, and NOT discriminating upon what the end user wants.

    Net neutrality is about keeping this same open protocol in place so that big and small businesses alike can compete in cyberspace, What the telcos and the politicians who get the fattest telco payments are somehow try to convince you is that a small company attempting to compete with the major telcos SHOULD get squashed like a bug by the very same telcos. That competition against the telcos is and ever shall be verboten. How do you reconcile the notion that the telcos will limit your choices and block your free access to information and services?

    this is being played out by the telcos and the GOP as the government telling telcos the content they can have on their internet service, when in fact it is the opposite, it is telling the telcos that THEY CANNOT LIMIT CONSUMER CHOICE. It's pure scare tactics because the telcos do not want you to dig deeper into what is really at stake - and that is forbidding the telcos from screwing over their customers by limiting consumer choice.

    go ahead telco folks, tell me ANYWHERE I am incorrect. Sure, you'll make up lots of counter arguments, but NONE will refute what I have stated above. In this case, the "dumb voters" is being counted on by the GOP, because they will give you NOTHING but the most simple of arguments - "the government is bad". Look past that people, please!!!

    The internet has worked as a shared interest/utility for over 30 years. The innovations it has produced, through shared knowledge, ideas and creativity is unmeasurable. Allowing the telcos to break the internet - “Pay us or you can’t play on OUR telconet” will do nothing but further stifle creativity.

    Allowing the telcos to break the internet is NOT good for consumers, and it will trample entrepreneurship as small companies are pushed out of the telconet.

    The only thing the telcos have brought to the world is ever more creative ways to screw over consumers.

    Don’t be led to the slaughter by the telcos. Open your eyes to what you will be giving up - open access to sites and services you can access now. With the telconet, they say who and what you can access.

    The whole point of the “scouring if the shire” is that it IS world as it exists in the forth age compared to the third age.

The point is that man and man-kind are on their own. They have to do things for themselves. The scouring of the shire was the first crisis that the returning hobbits had to handle completely on their own.

    It sets the bridge between the magical world of old, and a world that will transition to one like our own. The events will fade away to legend, myth, and eventually become simply unbelievability.

    When I was younger, I used to really love Maier's cream filled donuts - http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110307162616AAK4OQG

    I knew they were bad, but I still ate them. I ran track and was in sports 365 days a year. So they didn't stick, and were just bad food that I enjoyed. They came in a package of 6(maybe 8) in a box, and I would usually eat 2 at a time, sometimes more. ZERO nutritional info on them at all.

    I knew they were bad, but they tasted sooooo good. But then low and behold, the nanny state forced companies to actually inform it's customers with nutritional info. Once I saw the contents of a serving size, I nearly threw up. One donut had as much saturated fat as THREE big macs.

    BOOM!! Never ate another one again in my life. As a more informed consumer, I choose different bad foods to have occasionally. The impact to my body when seeking out bad food was greatly decreased - BECAUSE I HAD INFORMATION TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION!!!!

    Again, you want to remain uninformed, and insult/ridicule those wanting to make an informed decision. Your position is mind-boggling, WHEN IT COMES TO CONSUMER CHOICE.

    I suppose you get angry when you see that country of origin when it comes to products as well. How dare we be giving information to choose a product made in America versus China. DAMN THEM FOR GIVING US THAT INFORMATION!!!! DAMN NANNY STATE!!!

    I’m delusional for appreciating the fact that we have actual nutritional information on meals that we NEVER had before?

    Keep on burying your head and making poor choices that could have been greatly mitigated, had you had more information.

    The desire to be poorly informed on your part is mindboggling. This I shall not continue trying to understand your line of “reasoning”, when it comes to having more nutritional information concerning foods. Perhaps someone else can explain it to you better, I give up.

    Oh my goodness. You need a bunch of do gooders to FORCE by law the number of calories and fat in a dish???? I feel sorry for you.

    without the do gooders, we wouldn't know the "nutritional" content of most of this stuff. THAT is what I like. Bloomberg? Not so much. You seem to want to take this in some other chest pounding direction. All I've ever stated is that I appreciate the pressure to get information out there. If you could clam down there hulk and retread what I actually posted, you would see this to be the case.

    Again, you are missing the point about giving people choices. I LIKE the fact that I can pick the lesser of two evils when eating bad. I like being informed.

    You seem to despise learning the truth about the foods. Your choice is NOT to read the calories, content, label, etc...

    I learned nutrition as well when I was young. I know to limit bad foods as much as possible. But I also know that Given the info, I would choose a meal that is 100% of the daily allowance for fat/salt/etc... than one that is a weeks allotment of fat/salt/etc... Sometimes you don’t know it’s an order of magnitude worse.

    I agree 100%.

    It’ just that I know I have amended my “bad for you” meal eating routine based on being better informed. When one delicious, but bad for you, meal is 1/10 the saturated/trans fat, sodium, chemicals, etc... of another just as delicious but bad for you meal, I now go for the former.

    I”m much better off for it, and I thank those who have had to force restaurants to start disclosing the information.

    It seems like you do not want the information for some reason. Where as, I’m appreciative.

    Enjoy your quadrupel quarter pounder with cheese and bacon you are going to be grilling up on the 4th. I know I will.
