And it's the idiot bully's trick at that; the clever ones don't provoke the playground monitors.
And now, I would like to sincerely and heartily thank Verizon for the initial lawsuit provoking the playground monitor that made net neutrality a reality. I strongly encourage additional attention and noise to the issue for full on public utility regulation. Here's to moving the US into a First World nation with First World utilities like power, water, and real broadband - wired and wireless.
You've got a good point, but the implementation of said conditions have a different intrinsic suspicion. Discussions on encryption will only get you put on the NSA watchlist along with everyone else. Conversations about OPSEC may get you a little bit more. For example - getting revealed as someone who sends encrypted messages to your friends is either in that category of nerdy or slightly suspicious. Getting revealed as someone who passes parcels to others via dead drops will probably get your door kicked in by the DEA shortly followed by a long line of other three letter groups.
PS - I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to use the word "intrinsic" without thinking of eating leprechauns or quantum mechanics. Does anyone else have this problem?
