This is why you SJW types are going to lose in the end. You want to us white males to rally to your cause but all you do is insult and patronise us and all you have to offer is criticism. Life on easy mode my arse. Go tell that to the homeless whites, the poor whites, the whites that suffer from mental illness. You want to win the argument? How about giving a shit about men committing suicide in record numbers as a starting point. How about recognising that everyone has problems and not marginalising a single group based on their genitalia and skin colour (see the irony?)

The private ISPs could compete by providing better service to those willing to pay. At the moment they are private monopolies (or duopolies) which is the worst of both worlds.

As opposed to open source stuff which is just abandoned. You could pick it up yourself but the risk is just different not non-existent. Microsoft may well try to bully people who create new versions of ASP.NET but they're not going to kill their dev tools business any time soon.
