Don't forget -- "illegal" applies globally. The US has extradition agreements with Saudi Arabia and Turkey, so technically, a US citizen can be extradited to KSA for something anti-Islamic (giving a church flyer to a Muslim), and then beheaded even though the person never set foot outside the US. So, what may be something one doesn't worry about now may be something (and their families) that one might be killed over in a few years.

I don't think that's what extradition agreements are for.

I've read a few articles on /. about net neutrality, and I couldn't discern any consensus regarding it's overall positivity or negativity. Of course, I understand how a lack could be abused, stifling competition for eyeballs. But some of what I read, written by people actually in the communications industry, made seemingly good arguments against it. The more I read, the more ambivalent I became. It seems less cut and dried than, say, arguments against SOPA. Anyone have any serious material to read regarding the more technical aspects? I know that bias is inescapable, but I'd like some more informed information; John Oliver's delivery doesn't cut it. I'd greatly appreciate it.
