this is why i'm not impressed with anything you or pstall have brought to the table. ecu posted an article that is, so far, the only glimmer of light in this topic when it comes to discussing actual technical problems with net neutrality.
this is ideological squabbling. you're opposed to it because you saw "government" and "regulations" and made a series of assumptions. also the number of people repeatedly referring to it as a "bill"
My (as you refer to them) assumptions are based on my experience working in a federally regulated industry for a few years. Having dealt with the paperwork, and procedures tailored to track compliance with said regulations, I understand how it is a much larger task for smaller companies to survive in these industries. It is generally a much larger burden on smaller companies as a percentage of their operating costs. My issues are that the "cure" is going to be worse than the "disease".
Ps the part of the conversation I was originallly addressing (the near monopolistic ISP situations in many areas) are actually often caused by government intervention, I would much rather see a legislative approach that more limited in scope and much more transparent.
