Petition to the White House: "Restore Net Neutrality By Directing the FCC to Classify Internet Providers as 'Common Carriers'"
I've taken a break to actually work and get away from the little brats on this thread. Anyway, I'm not surprised that credited journalists, news sites, business and legal analysts, lawyers, academics, and documented history, all cited on this thread, including a specialist who worked for the US military in a tech. position, are considered to be "YoutTube comments"
by what a friend and colleague from England (working in Japan A.T.M.), called a chav".
The word; "chav", is not nice, but I don't care at the moment, I was very polite, reasonable and civil, but was repaid for respect with pig slop. My anger was valid, and this rude remark is also justified.
Maybe it's Lucas's Star War's teaching which influences them. SW sent a message that all anger is the "dark side". Well, I had my moment, it's past now, and I'm fine. I'm not even sorry for how steamed I became, as I had a right to get angry.
The negative response to my point of view is, as I'm interpreting it, my position that an unregulated market, or service such as the internet, is bad, and anarchy, harming society and the consumer. Look at all the deregulation that led to the financial collapse in '07-'08?
It may also be that we as societies in the west, in general, have had big corporations slowly "boiled the frog", society being the proverbial "frog". Look at the how religion was hijacked for the sake of corporate self-interest in the US? Also look at the PR faces of these companies on twitter and facebook.Leaders from 12 countries are about to lock into place binding Internet censorship rules through an agreement called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). by OpenMedia.com

I've said that I believe regulation will likely come, and that if it doesn't, it will hurt everyone who uses the web, outside of China, and even to a degree in India.
Shady' says I'm negative because I hold to the point of view that; no regulation will certainly result in harm for everyone. I still hold to this, no regulation IS negative, but I'm positive because regulation will likely come as a result of this net neutrality issue.
I'm a moderate, with a ready mind. I'm not saying that regulation is the certainty, but a good likely outcome. That outcome, by itself, is good. The internet, the web, must be classified as a "common carrier", or we will have irresponsible corporations acting in selfish interest, and against the public interest.
