I guess the millions killed with Zyklon B would disagree.

I also guess you have never heard of the term, "inciting a riot".

You say that it would take guns to achieve this. Well, these guns were in the hands of the State, precisely the ones you insist should only have access to guns. And you cannot deny that it was the writings and rhetoric that fueled the Nazi's rise to power and that is was the propaganda and incitement that enabled the murder of millions. Joseph Goebbels would have been hanged for his use of words.

So the words of a man had a much deadlier affect than any one loon with a gun at an elementary school.

I would expect that if Netflix can deliver the content to Comcast's network at X speed, regardless of how many carriers it goes through once it leaves Netflix's servers, then Comcast has an obligation to deliver that content to me at the speed that I pay for.

If Comcast can't handle legions of its customers using the bandwidth they pay for, then they have an infrastructure problem. It seems they are like the airlines, over booking and hoping people don't show up.

At these prices, I lose money -- but I make it up in volume. -- Peter G. Alaquon
