    CGPGrey has a much better vid explaining what Net Neutrality is and why ISP's can get out!!!



    If ISP's pull this crap, i'll practically sell my privacy to Google so they can start up their broadband service and curb this rubbish >_<

    It'll be a corporate lockdown on one of the greatest inventions made by mankind. The internet is an exchange of nearly all human creativity, knowledge, and entertainment. It is the avenue to a better future because it allows an exchange of ideas and solutions to worldly problems.

    By killing net neutrality we are giving companies the right to control every aspect of that data. It's disgusting.

    Before I clicked I knew it was all about making money.

    Human greed is beyond disgusting. I see it everywhere, on the news, in my family, it's sick.

    The already rich become consumed with wealth and even though they are set for 2 lifetimes they become ate up with making more. Their votes are aimed at protecting their money, everything they do is about more and more money. That includes s hitting on the common person.

    They, teamed with more greedy bastards called lawyers and politicians, have the power to change and influence law.

    Someone needs to start sniping these **** wads when they leave their house in the am to make more money.

    Sorry for the rant, I hate greed.

    I don't see the point in being polite. Okay, maybe with the tone of voice used but that's about it. These people need to know in no uncertain terms, that what they're contemplating is treason. It's as simple as that.

    Because when you call someone at an organization or company it's not the people who made the decision that you're angry with. There's no point in being angry or rude with that person. Otherwise you can say whatever you want. That image was made to be as standard and wide-spread as possible.

    Exactly! If you shout and scream and swear they will just hang up the phone.

    Yeah. Which is why I kinda partially retracted my statement and added the bit about having a polite tone of voice. I do think that you should speak your mind though and whitewashing the issue won't earn you any brownie points. Theses people need to know that what they're contemplating is in fact treason. More than one right will be violated as a result and if you wussyfoot your way through the conversation by being vague and non-challenging, that's exactly how you will be treated.
