The Internet as it is benefits everyone, especially communications giants. This notion of the poor little corporations who are hurting because they can't rape consumers every way they can think of is just laughable.

I realize that in a free market, not everyone gets what they want, and sometimes even the big guy has to be protected from the shapeless greedy mob of public consumption. However, this is not one of those times. Do you have any idea how badly the Internet would suck if f**king Comcast gets to decide whether you can access certain information? Of course, they aren't stupid, so they aren't going to do anything that pisses off a majority of their customers, but your head is in the sand if you think they're above severing access to content that they don't want people to know about or limiting access to a minority of their customers whose ideas or values they perceive as a threat.

We're entering an age when he who controls information controls the sheep. I can't believe anyone would willingly give up their access to publicly available content so that a few businesses can have their way. Doing so would be incredibly dangerous. These past few years have demonstrated how easy it is for the masses to be led to almost any conclusion imaginable by corporations and government in bed with each other for so long that the spawn of Rupert Murdoch and Karl Rove have no doubt already begun hatching and planning the next grand disinformation campaign.

And please don't hide behind the philosophical ideals of the free market. I don't care if the subtleties involved with supporting enterprise while restricting unchecked corporate greed make your head explode. Too much is at stake here. The Internet is our last bastion of defense against a trend towards total Orwellian information lockdown. Don't allow your representatives to sell it away.

I get the impression from you folks that nobody here is actually in favor of this law, but you're just playing devil's advocate for the sake of discussion. Or you're uninformed, I dunno. What'll it hurt you to sign the petition, really? . That's all this topic is about.

I think people get leery about the Gubbmint getting their hands on our precious Internet, but I think Markey's ammendment is a fair and correct way to go. I'm just afraid that Congress throwing it out is not a good sign.

I'm generally leery about any decision that directly benefits large companies at the expense of consumer choice. I can't find a link to the votes, but every representative is up for (re)-election in November. If you're able to vote, I highly suggest that you do so, and vote out anyone who took a stance on this issue that goes against your own opinion. Remember, USA isn't run as a Democracy, but a republic - and they are our representatives elected to think and decide for us.

All info on the Net should be consumable by all participants, and not up to the ISPs as to what's "premium" or "basic" Internet access. This will make the Internet more like Cable TV, where only the people with access to sponsorship and lots of money can be seen or heard. This would be horrible.

Vote for DoomBot in November!

You guys need to realize that if any ISP gets caught actively blocking or firewalling content that is counteractive to their interests, it would blow up over the news like an atom bomb and that ISP would be viewed as Gestapo.

You guys are taking a very ass-backwards look at this issue. You make it sound as if the goverment is voting on a bill to explicitly allow ISPs to extort and distort. That's really not the case. The bill they threw out was one that would explicitly mandate a governmental grip around the throats of the ISPs, forcing them to treat all websites exactly equal. This would have affected ISPs that offer a family-friendly mode that filters out pornography and offensive sites from the young kids in the family.

The fact that the federal government has backed down from forcing regulations on service providers seems to me like an extremely unusual case of the Feds DEcentralizing power. We should be glad for that. Both sides of the aisle seem to favor sloughing more power off the states to themselves and turning Washington into Rome, and we should probably be grateful when they DON'T force their way into an issue. Ultimately I find the concept of ISPs controlling content far less creepy than the concept of the federal goverment regulating the internet.
