The FCC promises to repeal the Net Neutrality Act.

What are your thoughts on this?

So here's my question...do they want violent revolution against them or will they be caught completely off-guard when/if that happens?

What will it take for Net Neutrality to be restored - because eventually, it will have to be. Or so I hope.

So...here's a question...

How on earth are they going to get this done when they pass it? How long will it take to organize? Will it even work like they think it will?


In regards to the actual bill that's being voted on...this is it.
Yes it is about "preventing" sex trafficking. Yes, it's really, really dumb.

We already had such laws in Russia, which allow to close any site without any kind of legal procedure beforehand.
Naturally it used primarily against political opponents of the regime.

Preventing us to know about the sex trafficking they're doing, more like it.

I mean, letís be honest. Iím fairly certain that this is at least part of the reason theyíre pursuing this...and blanket repealing of previous presidentsí executive orders....and just tell the population its to control some scary thing.

*shrug*

Someone will bring a lawsuit about this fairly quickly and itíll be a supreme court issue.

No there won't. Maybe a pitter patter of fading protest. Everyone is too chickensh*t nowadays.

People who benefit from it are now trying to censor protests. It's so bad that Tumblr will delete tags and posts related to net neutrality.

That actually is a pretty good point, but the question is if that will even work. The question become actually getting to that point.

EDIT
Actually it could...

Basically, they still have to go through legal courts to actually get the repeal passed. And when they do that, Pai has to bring recent evidence that it's necessary, for which he has very little.

I provided three articles to describe that exactly.

Vote delayed (maybe?) because of possibly FAKE comments from FAKE accounts.
