Blocking one site which points to illegal content is nowhere near the same as a country shutting down access to the entire internet.
Essentially they are telling you what you can and can't install on your own system.
The whole, "You're renting", or "You're the product" is BS. It's your system. You paid for it. You can install what you want.
Picked it up at a yard sale along with several other related books, mostly Asimov which I am also reading. Working through them when I find time.
To compare a search engine, which someone can choose or not choose to use, to a broadband provider, where there is only one, or if you are lucky two, to choose from in any given area is the literal definition of apples and oranges.
Off the top of my head I can count six different search engines I could use. In my area there are exactly two broadband providers, and both offer the same high prices for the same slow speeds.
As to this supposed "industry analysis", who did the analysis, Comcast? Of course they would say there is plenty of competition.
We knew this shill would be completely against consumer rights and his words and deeds are proof. We can all expect even higher prices and worse service than we already have, forcing the U.S. further down the list of industrialized countries with broadband service. Meanwhile, the con artist will claim it's a great thing for consumers to have only one or two options.
And by "works" you mean after you've manually configured files, got told to RTFM which doesn't exist, got yelled at online by people who think you should automatically know what to do, then sacrifice a goat in the hope an obscure posting from three years ago will do the trick.
If Linux just "works", why is it people on here repeatedly post about not having sound or cameras or drives working even with the latest packages and instead have to jump through hoop trying to get the above to work?
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Considering the amount of misspelled words and improper usage (their/there/they're or break/brake), it might be a not-so-subtle hint to get your act together.
If you don't think proper grammar is important, then you probably don't believe proper coding is important either.
Now ISPs can be regulated just like cable or phone companies because they are no longer pass-through entities. Remember, ISPs keep saying they shouldn't be regulated like those others, but now, since they are controlling what you can and can't access (through deals they cut with Netflix and such), they are no different than cable companies.
Now that they're collecting data, similar to what cable companies do when they know what you watch, ISPs can now be classified as common carriers.
Even better, since these folks will now know where you go, they can be held responsible for not reporting child pornography and other criminal acts. Nor can they claim ignorance. After all, they're no longer a pass-through entity. They're watching you.
I'm sure he'll get around to all of that when he gets back from his taxpayer funded golf trips.
A crying shame about your company. I guess when you screw over your employees, your customers and municipalities where you operate, things tend to work themselves out.
Using investigators to go after people who write mean things about your scam doesn't help either.
