I don't think the dissolution of the FCC is going to fix things, unless you think anarchy is the solution to all the world's government problems.

I wasn't going to post any more in this thread, but quoted text is just so ignorant it needs to be addressed.

please try to understand the difference between anarchy and the dissolution of a federal government agency. please.


I wasn't seriously saying they were the same thing. It's hyperbole. Look it up.

the dissolution of a single government agency has nothing to do with anarchy.

"but...but... hyperbole!" doesn't excuse the fact that the comparison has no place in any serious, legitimate discussion about the FCC or its existence.

and, no need to get defensive: I am just trying to help you cut out the fat so that you can refine your opinion & make quality posts.

Fun fact, the modern computing world was built by pirates including virtually every CS student of a certain age who learned OS coding with the Lions book and most of the major players in the early PC OS game

I honestly don't think it will always stay that way. A lot of ISP have soft caps now.
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

Interesting question. Objective stuff aside, I suppose the experience was ruined for me personally when I started becoming aware of what I post, because pretty much every stupid thing you say / upload will still be find-able and traceable to you and may be used against you in some way at some point in the future. (If the laws aren't in place for that right now, then they very well might be in the future.) That realization soured it up for me in a big way. I also despise the common practice of people googling your name first thing when they get to know you.
I now use a fake last name to guard against that, and only tell people I know very well my real name. (There's nothing shocking about me on google, I just hate the idea of it.)
I was having a great day. Then I discovered Zero Escape 3 was put on hold. There were no more great days.
