    Can we really say that anyone was truly alive before the internet came though?

    I lived half my life pre web, and back then - there were different reasons people gave for things.

    The only thing different today is the personal news bubbles, and that's not because of the internet - that's because of Facebook

I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" (Donald J. Trump - Twitter 24th November 2017).

    Just be happy you lived in a time when the Internet wasn't like TV and completely controlled by bullshit like the FCC.

    I hate this post internet world where people become desensitized to violence, have a platform to preach hate, have a canvas to create shitty art or have a screen to zombify themselves as they walk down the fucking street.

    Fuck the internet.

    I hope the FCC destroys every last shred of it. I'd give it up. Call me a hypocrite but in my opinion, me being one is just another reason why it has to die.
    Those are probably the dumbest reasons to hate the internet that I've ever heard.

    Hopefully soon we can put the internet under strict control and curation so it is no longer a disruptive force against progress. We need to do more to ensure Trumpian ideas don't get spread around.

    Why do you have any of those things to give up if they are so evil? You sound like a moron.

    You're free to give it up now, rather than predictably insisting that everyone else be subject to the same limitations.

    Trump voters are going to be paying more just like everyone else. I hope they are happy about that when they get their new and improved bill that doesn't come with a quality of service upgrade.

    Trump's FCC basically sets the stage for turning the internet into a paid tiered service like cable TV. If your carrier doesn't have a contract with "HBO"? Tough shit for you.

    Your ISP will steer your traffic towards their own financial interests and punish their competitors. And what about political preference when billionaires buy up the ISPs?

    When the libertarian dream of deregulation and privatization comes true then service always gets shittier and more expensive.

    all we need to do is revoke the exception made for telecom companies making them no liable to antitrust laws

    or you know, keep stacking laws on regulations on top of each other instead of removing the initial problem

    We need to save the internet.
    Belgium just declared loot boxes as gambling, and gamers fucked up EA. We are on an MMo site, we are gamers, we can keep going! Release the angry video game nerd rage!

    Hmmm

    No internet would mean no service bill. $90 A month
    No internet would mean no Hulu, Netflix, Wow accounts, or Amazon. $60 A month.

    The net effect is I save about $1800 A year plus dumb purchases. Oh no!
