I don't see how religion should be treated differently from The Adventures of Pinocchio or The Lord of the Rings or The Time Machine or Gulliver's Travels or something like that.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I currently get ~60 Mb up/down for $45/mo with my WISP.
How long can you keep a 60 Mbps without running into your monthly cap? The wireless Internet service providers I've looked at will cut you off after 10 GB in a month unless you insert coin to continue.
Some people used to touring can probably make a move in a day.
Perhaps "colo" here refers to the DSLAM or CMTS where the signal gets split to a neighborhood. In Archangel Michael's proposal as I understand it, a neutral party would own the colo and the last mile, but that party wouldn't connect the colo to the Internet. That'd be the job of competitive ISPs.
Twitter was a notorious Slashdot sockpuppetry ring. It has since become a microblog service.

You forgot watching Hollywood movies (lawful DVD player, lawful BD player, clients for each country's DRM'd streaming services) and preparing tax returns.
You can just decline to do business with "robber barons".
Unless a service provided only by said "robber barons" is required to get and keep a source of income to keep a roof over your head.
There are whole huge swathes of blogspot.com that are tranny porn
Many (but not all) can choose another locality.
So why over the past decade and a half hasn't Microsoft added additional support in Windows Notepad for LF, on which every other major platform has since standardized?
That sign in at a Google search screen bothers me, at which point is one going to be required to use it.
Last time I checked (which was today), creating a Gmail account required a mobile phone number. So for someone buying a mobile phone in order to have a mobile phone number in order to create a Google account, where is one supposed to search for reviews of mobile phones? If a different web search engine, then why not just stick with that instead of using Google Search?
