"Net Neutrality". They can make anything evil sound good. "Patriot Act" "Pro-Choice" "Pro-Life" "Democrat" "Republican". The world is too big with too many ideas for a two party system. I'm against abortion and against the death penalty. Where's my f*cking vote? *ssh*l*es. Guess I'll make my own party. Where I can cry if I want to.

It scares me how many people are blinded by the brilliance of the propaganda behind this law. Corporations will use this to a good end, not as a means of censorship- They can't AFFORD to, because then they will LOSE consumers! THINK, people! Is it really that hard?

Net Neutrality = Free Speech. Sure there's a chance that companies will still give you that "Free Speech", but why even give them the chance to ignore it?
August 23rd, 2006

OH, then I think I had it backwards...actually though, isnt the internet already run by companies like Google and stuff? Competition is always a good thing, privately run...things...are almost ALWAYS better than government run...things.

Mech- to use it as a form of censorship is COMMERCIAL SUICIDE. I would think that you'd be one of the first to take note of that.
August 23rd, 2006
(0)
"ISPs already the right to block access to sites as they see fit." Uh ya, and then they lose all their customers when they start being f*cktards and blocking stuff people want to go to. Without net neutrality, you can't go to another ISP because it will virtually be like all ISP's blocked the same site (except you can still get to it, it would just be incredibly slow depending on the bandwidth being used in that area.)

August 23rd, 2006
(0)
Ironic. You mentioned in the comment before your last that companies LOSE THEIR BUSINESS when the customer is unsatisfied with their performance, which only reaffirms what I've been saying all along. People can and WILL go to new ISPs when they've had enough sh*t. Companies that adopt Net Neutrality as part of their business practice are the solution, not a law passed by the government that forces them to do so.
August 23rd, 2006

Net "neutrality": because putting Congress in charge of something *always* eliminates all possibility of corruption. You people are so gullible.

Small businesses can acquire the resources they need should enough consumers become fed up with their current ISPs and seek alternatives. Generate interest in the consumer, and you generate interest in the investor.

"Net Neutrality =/= Free Speech. ISPs already the right to block access to sites as they see fit." That's probably why a law is needed to stop that. Plus you contradict this yourself by claiming it's a bad business move.

August 23rd, 2006

How is it a contradiction to say that censorship is a bad business move, yet not support Net Neutrality? If Congress passes it, they are bound to twist the new law to serve them rather than the people.

You know what the most bizaar thing is? Usually Democrats are the ones that want the Govt. to interfere with and regulate business. The republicans have historically wanted little govt. involvement.

This really shouldn't be an issue divided by parties. The whole Net Neutrality argument is not without flaws. Some regulations suggested by Snowe and others are good while some suggestions made by Senator Markey (he's an idiot by the way) flat out suck. If there were more compromise, perhaps more Republicans would be for it. 1'd for being a Republican bash fest without reviewing the details.

I forgive you for spelling my name wrong. But I don't see how it would stop progress; it's not like the telcos are so strapped for cash they have to charge more to upgrade their old wiring. It seems to me like they're just milking the consumers for all they're worth.

I'm cofused on this subject because nobody knows anything about it. I mean, really. What everybody says is that it's either good or bad and I can't figure out who to listen to. The division outweighs the knowledge. "Wah! I'm a democrat so I'm for something and I have no idea what it is!" "Wah! I'm republican so I must follow what my party says!" Where are the facts? Not opinions. This just reeks of needless diversion.
August 23rd, 2006

The issue here is that corporations are trying to divide web service into 'good' and 'poor' qualities, charging more for good quality. In other words, sites that have a large fan base but low income (YTMND), will become virtually non-functional if not impossible because of inability to afford premium service. Urge your senators to vote for net neutrality.

Yeah there's no way medical teleconferencers and high-quality video providers should be allowed to pay for higher-quality internet access than the Warez sites I frequent.

I'm still not entirely sure (yes, even after that site) whether the actual bill is for the big companies destroying the system & tiering it up & regulating themselves, or if it's just inadequate or if it's something we DO want in order to save the internet.

"Imagine if the Government was made of up all independants...and they actually had to THINK and DECIDE about how they were voting." Funny coming from someone who probably can't explain what Net Neutrality is or why he voted a 5 on it

This is an enormous problem in our political system -- it's pervasive. Media has convinced both politicians and denizens that the American political system is red & blue, democrat & republican, liberal & conservative. Politicians and voters are becoming more concerned with which political image they emit rather than what they really care about. It's a sad state of affairs, folks.

Do half of you even know what this bill is about? It's trying to bar telecom companies from selling different Broadband speeds at different prices.. It doesn't make sense for the government to meddle in the affairs of a corporation. If I want sh*tty internet at 10 bucks less a month I should damn well be able to get it!

Read the article, but it makes little difference. Just because in theory one can control the market via demand, doesn't mean that they will be able to control it in real life. Gas prices are a good example of this.

In theory, people should be able to control gas prices by favouring those companies with lower prices and compancies that price gouge would be "committing economic suicide". However, in reality they collaborated and now control us to make the most money. Besides this issue, I would agree that people shouldn't be able to pay to get higher priority in net power than others. The key difference here between Pro and Con appears to be one side saying what the internet IS like and the other side saying what...

Actually, Mewtwox, since both Republican- and Democratic-controlled Congresses have investigated allegations of gasoline price fixing and gouging and found no evidence of widespread malfeasance, your claims with regard to that market are just a bunch of bullsh*t. Gas prices have nothing to do with price fixing and everything to do with Western nations that refuse to allow drilling and refining because of environmental concerns, and the rapid development taking place in India and China.

I think this country needs a new policy called "car neutrality" where no one is allowed to pay extra to purchase anything better than a Pontiac Grand Am.

The reason why Democrats support net neutrality is because they believe in equal opportunity. Conservatism is based on that they don't believe everyone should have equal opportunity, because they believe in structure of society and social order.

If you honestly think that prices aren't being controlled for profit, you don't spend much time looking at the pumps. Funny how predictable the price fluctuations are, isn't it? Not to mention what happens whenever there's oil related news... prices drop way before actual reprocussions are even felt. The government investigation was the equivalent of a handwaive. Like they actually cared...

If the oil companies are exerting significant monopolistic control over the price of gasoline for profit, you'd think they could at least manage to make gas cost more per gallon than bottled water.

Communism FTL. Why should the government be able to decide what a company does? If an ISP goes non-neutral, people will get pissed off and they'll switch to a neutral provider. Competition between companies will keep the net neutral anyway. Thats the greatness of capitalism.
