    Net neutrality never existed.
    If a gov wanted to block a website they forced the ISPs to block its DNS domain and IP, even if it's against the law.
    Indeed net neutrality should forbid an ISP to block a site, because no website/resource should be blocked from the Internet.
    But this happened a lot of times.

    See for example the Vkontakte russian social network, banned from Ukraine because the Americans wanted them to use Facebook ( i guess ).
    It's against net neutrality laws but they did it

    no, we are talking about the idea of an isp blocking a site for profit, not actual legal reasons, like say comcast blocked hulu, netflix, and crunchy roll, and said you had to by the tv streaming internet package to get them, then that's breaking net nutrality
    this is a similar misunderstanding of what freedom of speech means, just cause ya have freedom of speech doesn't mean you can run around and make death threats

    The Patriot Act wasn't patriotic. The Affordable Care Act wasn't affordable. Guess what net neutrality won't be

    Affordable, ha, yeah right. Get penalized for having a job that doesn't pay you enough for basic insurance. That sure sounds "affordable". Patriot act is a joke, and the FCC are a bunch of stuck up snooty bastards.

    Oh I hope there's an uprising after this, and a huge legal battle that destroys the FCC in fines.

    Damn right. Communism is overrated and only works in theory. In practice, it's not that great. No system is perfect, but lol communism. The FCC however, yeah, I want them to go under.

    No one cares about Anon though :creep: Just a bunch of pusillanimous script kiddies who don't do any real work.

    Socialism, how's that working for the EU, by the way? Doing good financially?

    That's why no nation has been truly communist.

    You realize that net neutrality is what we have NOW, right?...

    What we're all getting up in arms about is that the FCC wants to take that AWAY

    But what I'm saying is that your quip about net neutrality not being neutral (or at least that's what I understood) doesn't apply, unless you're saying that the loss of net neutrality would make the 'net less neutral, which is a given

    Due to the importance of the topic, i would say necrobumping is justified.
    I still can't believe this is happening.
