Comment: Do you really know what you are supporting? (Score 1) 316

For those of you against the FCC’s recent actions for net neutrality, Do you really know what you are supporting? Without net neutrality: If you are running for office and the ISP’s executive board supports your opponent, the ISP could censor you by blocking all content about you. The ISP’s can block, throttle or create tolls for competing services such as Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime by charging them extra to use their network so that the ISP can be compensated for the losses due to customers cutting the cable. (which is already happening). An ISP’s executive board that is dominated by agnostics and atheists could block all religious content. Company A could influence an ISP to block the site of a competing company. Radical lefts blocking Tea Party and conservative sites or vice versa. The potential abuses can go on and on. Yes, these may seem extreme or unrealistic, but how often have you heard lobbyists claim “oh no! We would never do that. That is not the purpose of this controversial bill or act.” The later on after it is passed, they begin conducting those activities they claimed they would never do. How many times have you heard of that happening? DMCA is the perfect example of this.

This is why I always run my own router behind the ISP's router. Create a DMZ between the 2 routers with a subnet so that the only available IP addresses are one for the WAN port on my router and the other for the LAN port on the ISP router.

I know numerous people, including me, who hold on to Windows because we are avid gamers of a wide variety of games which are not supported on Linux. If game support became a “killer feature” for Linux, then Microsoft would likely receive a significant reduction in users of their OS and Office suite.

yes, I discriminated against him because the other candidate had more experience. I discriminated against you because the other guy wore a $1000 suit while you just had slacks, a button-down shirt and a tie. You can pretty much discriminate anything. Just about any choice you make is discriminatory. I discriminate against McDonald's because I think Jack in the Box's burgers are better. We discriminate based on, prices, quality of service, quality of product. It is impossible to not discriminate.

The GM automobile assembly plant in Arlington, TX. Nearly closed down because they only looked for “the absolute best.” Suddenly their absolute best are all retiring and there are no “absolute best” to fill the positions. GM scrambled to the local high schools and trade schools. Offering full coverage of tuitions and above average pay for the new automotive technicians. The hiring of the “absolute best “ philosophy is a disaster waiting to happen.

Comment: Taste of their own medicine (Score 2, Insightful) 550

I'd like to see multiple ISP block all content and websites associated with those politicians and their political party. Especially during an election to give them a dose of their own medicine. See this is what can potentially happen to you if net neutrality is prevented. Eventually become as censored as China.

I see RFID implants as the mark of the beast. 666. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 This is my interpretation.

How can you work when the system's so crowded?
