So, basically 90s internet...
@Suicide Squad Sucks, *has ptsd flashbacks of dial-up noises*
@Aaron Leibowitz, I've seen Hell... it's that noise, for all eternity! 😉
No this is dial up
@magrar, no this is Patrick!
@magrar, reminded me of that too. However companies would be able to control speed and even block connections if this shjt goes through. This déjà u could be all too real.
I don’t want to go back to the early 90s! It took all damn night to get just a little bit of porn!
Well maybe we shouldn’t have elected Trump
@Dragoon0106, Ajit Pai, the man who wants to repeal net neutrality, was put into office by Obama, not Trump, don't let the media fool you.
@flaps the flying fox, hey man is this the hill you want to die on? The FCC is made up of five commissioners, which by law only three of whom can be of the same political party. Legally Obama had to put up someone he disagreed with. Trump then promoted Pai to chairman, replacing Tom Wheeler, an Obama appointee and Democrat and net neutrality supporter. Do some research before you come at me.
@flaps the flying fox, I do my own research and I’m certainly not letting the media fool me. If we didn’t elect Trump, this would not be happening.
@flaps the flying fox, he was a commissioner under Obama, not the Chairman. Two different things. Nice try in deflecting this to being Obama’s fault though.

@Dragoon0106, Holy crackerjacks, that was brutal.. well done!
@TheCruzanator, I just hate when people with a little bit of information think they know the whole story. If you’re gonna pretend you know it you might as well actually go learn it.
@ios11, I'll take "didn't fully read the question" for 200
@Dragoon0106, woo happy I managed to get back in the positives and I hope I educated some people on this issue. Someone with some of the facts is way more dangerous than someone with no facts at all.
@Dragoon0106, we were in danger under Obama and he seemed oddly unhelpful, but yeah, the Trump presidency has brought us far closer than ever.
I don't mind, reminds me of the 90s, and I loved the 90s
NATIONWIDE VERIZON PROTESTS TODAY
Im glad this is exactly what internet will be like. I'm surprised that me neutrality hasnt been banned quicker tbh. Is this the one hot button issue that literally everyone believes is just holistically evil, With no good?
@StiffWood, no I don’t think so. I recognize both sides but I think that in this day and age the internet deserves to be regulated like a utility. We use the internet for life and death issues; have you ever seen a hospital when the internet goes down? It deserves to be regulated as such. This clearly diminishes the profit motive of ISPs but they can still certainly make a living and at this point the government is the only one pushing them into low population density areas which is one of the last arguments.
No, please just kill yourself if you're going to spread lies like this.
@Captain Swordsman, its not a lie. Without net neutrality your Internet service provider can do this to whatever website they choose. In fact they’ve already done this to websites in the past. Which is why net neutrality was pushed into existence by the well over 20 million people who protested and asks for it. People Who actually know what it is. And haven’t been fooled by the propaganda put out by corporations like Verizon and Comcast
Well its been fun while it lasted everyone. But we’re screwed
