The nature of their product is such that it can't be made and distributed in any centralized way...

Then why is it patentable? I wish we could go back to the way it was before, where you had to submit a physical working example of your invention when submitting a patent application. A patent on a business model should not be allowed.

Actually, that's not net neutrality. Net Neutrality can be summed up in 5 words: A packet is a packet. I don't know what is so hard about this. Some people will say stuff like: you have to prioritize VOIP for 911, or real time emergency alerts, or whatever. Bullshit. A packet is a packet. If you throttle or prioritize, you're not neutral. Period.

10 to one delusion (misspelled on purpose) isn't what you seem to think it is. Take 100ml of pure water and drop 10ml of the "active" ingredient into it.
Then, take 100ml of pure water and drop 10ml of the previous solution into it. Keep repeating 8 more times. The resulting solution is just pure water.

Wait, what? You say your host file is ~3Mb. So instead of blocking an entire tld with a wildcard, I should be downloading a 3Mb (and growing every day apparently) every day instead of performing a single query? You've been struck down many times before, by myself and others, and you still spew this crap. Ahh, good times.
