You get one of the few ISPs that'll actually give you a full IPV6 stack to your house and suddenly *they* owe *you* for not routing part of the IPV6 network to you? How quickly people gain an undeserved sense of entitlement.

Government enforced "openness" will allow government controlled "decency regulation."
I wouldn't be surprised if either party introduced this bill but at least place the blame for this specific idiocy on in the correct place.
If only it was productive to laugh when people realize their savior is similar to their enemy. I hate politicians.
