politicians will find SOME way to screw it all to hell
"What exactly are these people smoking?"
probably the same crap that they refuse to legalize.
yes. I'm saying they're hypocrites. They're politicians. it means the same thing, more often than not.
Politicians should just get the hell out of the way. No internet taxing, no regulation beyond protocols [that make it possible to HAVE an internet], and let the FTC decide what the corporations can do for whatever business interests they might have [selling our data, for example]. the FCC is about communications, NOT about regulating content, nor preventing prioritization, nor telling ISPs they can't offer 'different pricing' for various services or service levels [even if that means no overages for approved content], yotta yotta yotta.
THAT is what this is all about. The FCC should have NEVER tried to regulate "these kinds of things". And it should never try AGAIN. Laws to prevent that from happening are reasonable.
But you know politicians, they'll find SOME way to screw it all to hell...
