Were About to Lose Net Neutrality And the Internet as We Know It By Marvin Ammori 11.04.139:30 AM http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/11/so-the-internets-about-to-lose-its-net-neutrality/

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Well, that's the 2nd time I've seen that article linked here at Bleeping Computer.


Had to read it slow and then re-read it...lots to digest and most of it seems depressing.


I'm trying to remember/remind myself that the Net really still is in it's infancy and these types of dealings (business and political) come with any new territory...but it still can be overwhelming and disheartening all in one fell swoop.


Nonetheless, thanks for posting it.

This may seem a bit naive, but all it would take to stop this nonsense is for one large Internet provider to stand up and say "yeah those other guys play those games, not us".   And then just sit back and listen to their phones ringing off the hook with people wishing to sign up.

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.
