TC is disappeared. I think his trolling works...


Let's see, it's called my last post was at 1 am and I went to bed and haven't been back until now. I wouldn't expect someone that can't see this as fear mongering to understand.

Let's see what else is there. A few posts claiming these things "could potentially" happen. Yeah this isn't an argument. A lot of things could potentially happen. This is the fallacy of a solution looking for a problem. These worst case scenarios are speculation. Again, to use the example in my op they make it out like I would have to pay extra to access reddit. This is fear mongering. Yer "what if" doesn't change that because that's all it is, "what if." Can you imagine what it would be like if we governed based on "what if"? I mean this is clearly ridiculous, a bunch of maybe and could potentially happen. That's not an argument.

Just because they didn't do the things people fear on day one doesn't mean that it won't happen.

That's not fear-mongering, that's taking the consequences of removing net neutrality to their logical conclusion.

All things considered, the worst case scenario should be the first case scenario looked at for a great many things in life. Without a good appreciation for just how badly things can go wrong you cannot fully grasp the steps necessary to make it go right.


These are all speculation and "what ifs". You are literally advocating a "solution" looking for a problem.

What else is there. We have a gem of a post where a guy is trying to make a comparison to a black man being president and the length of women's skirts. lol Glad someone else picked up on that.

We have several instances of trolling and insults. Just no substance, I'm right and yer wrong type bulls***. Real head in the sand fingers in ears "la la la la I can't hear you type bulls***."

So basically not much substance at all or any kind of refute to what I was saying about fear mongering. You guys are literally contributing to it. $5 for reddit, $10 for Steam, seriously this what yer saying.

Let's not forget net neutrality has only been around since 2015.

Shut the f*** up, shill:

I'd also like to revisit this. A lot of these things were resolved by other means. Several of them could have been resolved through things like anti trust laws (blocking competitors services/products). So again, it's not the omg hair on fire situation you make it out to be.

Unless you are a large shareholder in a cable provider, I don't understand how anyone could support the repeal of net neutrality. Its one of the most anti-consumer concepts I've ever heard of.

Astroturfing. Or poor attempt at trolling. No one benefits from repealing net neutrality except faceless corporations and the billionaires who back them.


Intellectual dishonestly. Yer choosing not look at points made on the other side.

You have no points. And having an “intellectual discussion” with someone who advocates sticking their head in the sand is the best course of action is pointless.

Just because they didn't do the things people fear on day one doesn't mean that it won't happen. A gradual change is much easier to get away with than a radical change in one day. Also sure some ISP's may not do a damn thing, it still doesn't mean we shouldn't have a bill in place to make sure they don't.

Really getting rid of net neutrality is as dumb as claiming that the power company could determine what we could and couldn't use with the power they provide us for a price. Sorry sir you can't use our power to light up that Christmas Tree you didn't pay for the holiday lightning package.


OP's argument is basically this: "People aren't REALLY going to murder people, so it shouldn't be illegal to kill someone."

Businesses are here to make money, if they could legally choose to charge you more for what you already pay for and lower the quality of competitor sites and affiliates, no capitalist would ever let something like morals enter the ring when it comes to money.

And if they don't have any obligation to show you what they are doing and why, you can bet your arse they would insert aggressive censors and blocks to anything that they do not want you to have, while throttling the s*** out of you... unless you pay a premium.

The smaller competitors would get annihilated by the majors, be sure you will get monopolies starting up if it get's repealed.

The internet made massive leaps in technology and price , from 1995 to 2015 - without "net neutrality".

Obama's "net neutrality" bill was a 350 page monstrosity that gave the government complete control over the internet.

You would have to be stupid to want something like that.

I agree OP and I will be laughing with you when nothing significant happens upon its repeal. The internet nowadays deserves to die anyway, no great loss either way.


And then you'll be crying when the porn sites you subscribe to suddenly become much slower and/or more expensive.


I don't watch porn because I'm not a cuckold lmfao. If that was really your best insult, try again.

Unless of course if your point in the first paragraph is "We said all of these things would lead to a bad end and LOOK WHERE WE ARE" in which case...erm...go back to the 1920s?


More like cases where the "worst case scenario" feared by people came to happen and later became commonplace.

Dragon Nexus posted...
And then you give an example of fee2pay games as an example of when "If we allow this, then everything will go to hell!" actually *did* happen.


Happening. The process isn't over by any stretch of the imagination.

Gojak_v3 posted...
These are all speculation and "what ifs".


A worst case scenario that becomes common fact is far from "what if," and history is replete with them.

Gojak_v3 posted...

Actually, I'm advocating not sticking your head in a hole as you pretend that nothing could go wrong and actually taking a realistic look at the ramification of others' actions.

Providing examples, not making comparisons, and please feel free to refute the fact that the "worst case scenario" can, and does, become not only normal but accepted.

I'm right and yer wrong type bulls***.


Yet that's exactly what you're doing. "I'm right and you're wrong you self-deluded fearmongering trolls"

All I did was advocate taking a realistic look at the world around you and having an honest appreciation for the future consequences of present actions. Hell, I didn't even say that you were right or wrong on the whole "fearmongering" thing, just that without a realistic appreciation for how badly a situation can go you can't realistically guide that situation to the "best" ending.
