You forgot to mention the fact that Max owns YTMND.com, and would have to pay for "top-tier" service if this bullsh*t actually goes through. As it stands now, he already has to pay ungodly amounts of money to host the site, which is really only paid for by the ads on here. Imagine if he had to pay twice that much to get decent bandwidth to host this massive site on. The death of network neutrality will mean the death of YTMND.

I mailed both my senators, and my local representative, about a month ago.

So let me get this right. These companies will determine which content has higher priority and will in turn receive more bandwidth. So logically they will allocate more bandwidth to sites that draw more attention. Ultimately, I will be able to see more porn at faster speeds. I fail to see the problem.

I'm sure you're all familiar with Ted Steven's "Series of Tubes" Speech. Now realize that he was making that speech as an explaination of his OPPOSITION to net neutrality!

"'even if I have to vote for hitler to take his place.' what." perhaps you're not familiar with how elections work. you vote for one person and they get the office. If stevens runs again, I have to vote for someone else to take his place if I don't want stevens. and yes, if your pr0n site is not paying craploads of money to the ISPs for bandwidth, you'll be lucky to get 56k speeds, if the site even loads at all.

"NaroidCRX: But is that necessarily wrong? I'm not disagreeing with you, but if you hate Best Buy and walk into the store and plaster "Best Buy Sucks" signs all of the walls, shouldn't they be allowed to take them down?" If you walked into the street with a sign that said "Bush Sucks," would you expect to be arrested? that's what effectively will happen if net neutrality is abandoned. It'll end up that every blog that says bad things about any given ISP is gonna get their bandwidth killed.

So you're saying you would want someone in office who killed 6 million jews over someone who used the word "tubes" to describe the internet.

"Ziv: Go into a Best Buy with signs that say "Best Buy Sucks" and paste them all over the walls." I didn't say that. Flaming an ISP on their own forums is one thing. Flaming them on your own personal website is another. If net neutrality is abandoned, the ISP would be able to censor anyone on any site. It would be like peacefully protesting against Best Buy in a town square and getting arrested because Best Buy doesn't approve.

I don't think it's a non-issue at all, I think it's something everyone should be concerned about. If Congress gives in to the lobby and doesn't protect net neutrality the big ISPs will undoubtedly ruin the internet with this two tiered garbage and possibly begin the charge people extra fees to access the "normal" internet they had before net neutrality was killed. That to me is an issue. Especially when someone as ignorant of the internet as Ted Stevens is trying to fix something that isn't broken.

"Ziv: But is it? I don't really know. I have no good answer for you. In one sense, it's like censoring an exterior protest, but at the same time it *is* their network."In the absence of net neutrality, the ISPs become like the mafia. Don't like that rival store? pay the ISP and the site will just disappear. Also: in what way is an external website "their" network?

"NaroidCRX: But is that necessarily wrong? I'm not disagreeing with you, but if you hate Best Buy and walk into the store and plaster "Best Buy Sucks" signs all of the walls, shouldn't they be allowed to take them down?" That analogy makes no sense. Would you want the internet to be synonomous with a corporation? Saying "best buy sucks" on the net is like saying it sucks on the street. If best buy had authority to take the message down, that'd imply that the message was on their property ie the internet.

Not one of these fudgepackers in Congress has a clue about what they are voting on here beyond what the lobbyists have told them after stuffing a fat wad of hundred dollar bills into their pockets.

RalphTheMagician: I would normally agree with you. I think that businesses should be able to do what they want with their investments. However, the internet has become such a huge thing that the control those ISPs would weild would be tremendous. Say a polititian pays off the ISPs to make it so his opponent's website doesn't work? On one hand, you can't trust the companies, and on the other hand, you can't trust the government to do that job either. I see net neutrality as the only feasible solution.

I see what you're saying. But at the same time, I'm allowed to say whatever I want about best buy so long as it isn't on thier site or anything they have direct power over. To say they or any other company has the right to take down what you say about them anywhere on the net is to say it's alright for a corporate entity to invade your space and censor you. It's not them taking down signs on their walls, it's them barging in your house and telling you to drop the subject. not saying this will happen if this

"in theory, current anti-trust legeslation should prevent anything from spiraling out of control. It has so far." that's the argument that many of the senators who are against net neutrality are citing, saying that they want to wait to see if it's going to be a problem. However, savetheinternet.com wants it put into law now so we don't have to worry about it being a problem in the first place.

The main problem we have with Net Neutrality is that f*cktards like Ted Stevens (and yes, many other politicians) don't have a f*cking clue how the internet works. They, honest to God, think they're actually improving the internet by removing Net Neutrality. Someone needs to fill them in on the real deal, or YTMND as we know it will cease to exist.

I went to there site and looked on where the senators stand. All of the Republicans just want to make money and against net neturality. All of the Democrats are FOR it. I urge you if you can vote to Vote Democrat. The Republicans have put this country to sh*t enough already.

As Lewis Black put it, "The Democrats, the party of no ideas. The Republicans, the party of bad ideas." What we really need is a leader, not a politician... Not many people running for presidency are more leader than politician... Politics is a symbiotic relationship with leadership, unfortunately, politics can sometimes suck a leader dry... lol, analogy...

"You've got it backwards. The more money the 'evil corperations' pay internet providers, the more prominant their influence will become in the services. It doesn't mean the poor will no longer be allowed to read the news. OH NOES!" Yea, that's EXACTLY why they want this law to go down.

IF you want to know why the lawmakers are doing little to press the Net Neutrality Act, it might be because they are hesitant to over-regulate a free market – THAT would be government oppression.

Individual solicitation of congressman is likely not to do much. There has to be a swelling response, unfortuantely the Media is directed by those who do not want this to happen so word is not that easy to get out. There are several levels of action that need to be taken, each dependent on the severity of the problem relative to time passed.

Make people on video game sites and other popular sites aware, if you can gather enough who care, do real life campaings where you announce what is happening directly to people. Preferably obtaining an Ice Cream truck and a bull horn. If such efforts fail and things become dire... well that would be a real revolution with blood spilt (if people actually cared about their rights that is.) Let's hope it doesn't get there.

Someone lit a cat on fire, So we started an anti-animal abuse phenomenon on the internet. When someone stole our logo? We had him closing shop in 2 f*cking days.

I called about 9 congressmen's offices, I think I actually spoke to one and told him I'm happy with his decision (he was out of state and pro net neutrality). I think the fact that we even have to fight our congress to do the RIGHT thing and not go out of their way to f*ck us shows that this country is in serious need of an overhaul (execute corrupt officials for treason plz)

Also: F*ck representative democracy. That's how we got into this situation in the first place; we need to put direct democracy in place, similar to what they had in Athens. Imagine what would happen?

Let's get serious here: the abandoning of net nuetrality would not limit your first Amendment rights: that's just extreme spin. It would just allow ISPs to charge you for internet access in the manner that they charge for cable TV. An "all-inclusive" package would be available. Don't get me wrong, I don't like the idea, but be honest.

While a real issue, I die of laughter when I read that people "sent letters to their senators" or "left a message on their voicemail". If you're so angry and afraid, go to Washington and protest for all the gods sake. Burn down the White House. Do SOMETHING.

It's not just gonna "blow over". That mentality is the reason America is rotting from the inside right there. People don't give a sh*t, they just figure the same government bodies that f*ck them over are somehow going to take care of the problems THEY themselves are creating, and everything will be fine and blow over. So we shouldn't worry about it or think about it or do any work, we'll just leave it up to them. If you havn't noticed, they've been taking away our rights little by little for years now, and

DEAR INTERNET USERS: The net narvality act is actually a big deal because we're looking at things like preferential routing by the owners of backbones. So, if Pacific Bell decided to screw, say, Google, then users whose traffic went through a PacBell router on its way to the nearest Google server might experience higher latency than usual when accessing Google pages. OMG ALERT THE INTERNET!

p.s. Why do we want the government to baby sit us so much? If you are so worried about net neutrality, start up a company that does not restrict bandwidth, and COMPETE! ...anyways, it would be detrimental for the corps to restrict the bandwidth anyways. The consumer would not stand for it.

Someday, the Internet will become an example of a problem known as "The Tragedy of the Commons." Everyone will have an incentive to use the infrastructure, no will have an incentive to build it. There are two solutions to this problem: privatize the commons (which is essentially waht Congress is doing) or ration access to the commons (this is generally what government does in such situations.) The simple fact is that rationing would be FAR worse.
