Make fun of an affiliate of this whole idea!The beotch is trying to take down videogames! Good luck doing that!
Yes, it`s called capitalism my friend, and unfortunately, America is a capatalistic society. In our country, money talks and the big boys that own the hug-ass corporations run the deals. You want a different politian in the office? If you`ve got billions, you might be able to change that. The thing is, that yes, there are bigger problems in the world--but this internet thing is much bigger than just web use. This has to do with manipulating the information in a huge media in which many Americans (and others around the world) obtain information. If a party has enough cash, in other words, they could get you to "know" the lies they want you to know. Not to mention this is terrible for our economy.
There are limited reserves of oil, it takes a very specific environment to generate oil, and it takes a long time to create the oil. In other words, we use it faster than it regenerates, like all of our resources. So yes, the oil will run out eventually.
is this whole thing real, i believed at first, but...y`know
(No, I don`t care for Gore, but I`m tired of that dumbass joke)
Let`s ask Gore, he invented it.....
"Hmm...we`re in charge of delivering all information that runs through the net. But the costs of maintaining, rebuilding and renovating this infrastructure is worrisome. Why put up with the high costs of upgrading this technology when the return isn`t worth it? We need to put some of the costs/burden on someone else. But who? The consumers? Hell no. They`ll never fall for that. It`s hard enough just trying to get $30/month from them anyways. I know, the web host companies! After all, it`s their information that we are sending to and from the consumers. They make a boat-load of cash. But how would we be able to get them to pay up? I know, get them to pay us for better service. Or we could just start everyone off with crappy service and have them pay us a lot to get the service they currently have, heheh. (continued)

Don`t feel that way, its not you. Its the people who run your country, they are meddlesome.
I agree, I lived in Australia, up until a few years ago. WHen I came here, I thought laws would be a little more slack, its not at all. You guys are very restricted. Need to do something about it.
I think xxbakasan was a bit confused. The Communications Opportunity Promotion and Enhancement (COPE) Act, which was the act that began all this contreversy only passed through the House of Representatives: http://www.newtelephony.com/news/66h8211...
i hope if it does happen there will be new internet companies popping up offering uncensored internet service
the music in that video. was awsomely cool though.:D
@ 7451: On average there are only 2 Internet Service Providers available to each home in the United States. What if both are doing the same thing? The fact is that even if we could switch, this is destroying our freedom as Americans.
It`s sad that the amendment to save Net Neutrality has already been discarded. Get ready to see some bad poo happen, people. Congress doesn`t care what happens.
Goodbye to you all. I suggest you go to China or S. Korea. At least your b!tching would be warranted there.
anyway, so, the internet would either make it private for some. whats the point? does that mean we cant USE the internet or just that we can only use SOME of the sites?
Also, wouldnt the economy go down. think about it, they get rid of the millions of people paying for their domain and then since most of us will probably end up hating this new internet, we`ll not pay for the connection. If it happened as I just said (probably not) wouldn`t they just end up making a lot less money?
This is just stupid. Trying to block information. So, no matter what, there will always be a way to get the information we all crave. No matter what, when people want something, we have a way of getting it!
I`m all for the troops, but I wish they weren`t so stupid and would just all get up and pack their sh|t and leave. We are fighting an invisible enemy, in a land that hates us, that is destroying their minds and spirit. People are dying for land interests, and oil interests.
I live in America, and I am beginning to really not like it anymore.
Backbone routing plays a lesser role in overall packet throughput than your internet connection and the performance of the web server. In my opinion, vital network traffic should be a higher priority than teenagers gossiping about K-fed in AOL chat rooms.
- Tom Halfhill, Analyst for Microprocessor Report.(From an article he wrote in Maximum PC)
Critics complain that without net neutrality, small online businesses won`t be able to afford the same service as huge sites like amazon and google. That`s like the owners of your neighborhood thrift shop whining because they can`t afford a storefront on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Actually, it`s worse, because the pricing for tiered service won`t be nearly as disparate as that. Companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo are fighting against tiered service, because they are the bandwidth hogs that will have to start paying their fair share for all the traffic they generate.If congress allows tiered service, nobody exept the largest bandwidth users will notice a difference. The Internet backbone has tons of capacity and keeps growing.
The US is getting way too fvc|<ed up for my tastes. The PATRIOT Act? Going to war on bad intelligence? Pissing off our allies by going to war? Targeting an enemy that CANNOT BE TARGETED? Tapping phone lines without a warrant? Removing net neutrality so a few can benefit?
We truly are headed the way of the Romans. Here`s to America`s collapse once they`ve pissed off one too many people.
Opposite of internet nuetrality? heh
I posted something similar to this about a month ago...too bad it wasn`t put up. The early debates are over, and most of the favor went to get rid of IN.
Call them and give em what you think about it, remember to be polite.. It is the capitol after all :P Ask them about "Internet Nuetrality", then say "It`s a horrible idea, whoever thought of it should have their brain laqered" or "Die in a busfire, you bastards" that will get the general message through.
ive signed that petition thing, we have to save the net!!!!
Go here and fill out the pettition, I did. They make it easy by automatically sending a letter (if you choose to fill one out) to your Congress member. The internet is a big place, just imageine all the letters the people in congress could be getting. Every extra one helps, because the real danger is relying on others to speak up... Thats always the problem in large groups of people. Well, YOU gotta speak up or the way things are heading won`t change and we`ll lose the internet as we know it
I think the fact that i cant do anything about it because im outside of the us.
