The widespread use of loopholes by companies/"rich" people always really pissed me off. They constantly complain so much of their wealth is being taken, yet they pull crap like this.

I "[Y]et they pull crap like this." They don't like their wealth being taken, so they take steps to keep it. How is that any way contradictory?

I should've put in a sarcasm flag. Of *course* governments use regulatory power to curtail free speech. I think net neutrality proponents are naive to seek a government solution to a hypothetical problem without thinking about the unintended consequences of the regulations that would have to be imposed. How do we ensure companies aren't throttling packets from some source? We'll have to monitor that data. So now we have the government keeping track of how much data comes from what sources. That's a system ripe for abuse.
