Because most other content didn't require the bandwidth; if comcast wants it's customers to be happy, they should make the content their customers want more readily available without extorting the content provider - yes, work with the content provider, but not extort them. But comcast doesn't care about it's customers because it has an effective monopoly on high speed bandwidth in most places it operates.

It's not Neftlix wanting unlimited bandwidth access to Comcast's customers, it's Comcast's customers wanting what they actually paid for already. If Comcast has a problem with me using the service I already pay for to access Netflix, then their problem is with me, not Netflix. I'm the customer. I'm the one paying for bandwidth, and I'm the one choosing to use that bandwidth to access Netflix. I understand they argument they weren't throttling Netflix, that there were other problems, but I would think Comcast would actually want it's customers to be happy... that is, unless they had an effective monopoly on high speed internet service to their customers... which is exactly what they have with the majority of them.

'However disgusting, "revenge porn" ought to remain legal...'

It's not about free speech. It's about not respecting someone else's privacy. It's about breaking an implicit trust.

Tell you what, if it's OK to post the pictures I say it should be mandatory that the real name of the person submitting them should be posted right alongside the image, in order that women everywhere could know who to avoid.

"Don't quit your day job..."

You might want to re-read the summary. His day job is quitting him.

And to the original question asker I'd say go with development because you'll never be good at something you don't like.

Also, when you've landed that good job, reward your girlfriend amply for helping make it all possible. :-)

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all different.
