Not every place is for every person. Self selection isn't inherently bad. Over the course of fifteen goddamn years this has become a place for relatively like minded individuals to talk about things and to argue over the minutiae they disagree about since they (we) agree on almost every larger issue.

Why is this so hard for people to get

It's not like we isolate ourselves from bad ideas. We encounter them everywhere. There's just no need for us to encounter them here. Ugh.

A pity, right? I was totally looking forward to an internet in which ISPs have the ability to throttle or outright block what I want to do on the web on a whim, because an internet where big ISPs have free reign is better than what we have now.

3) However, Netflix also experienced much faster download speeds during this same period with other companies (Cox, Cablevision, Google).

In other words, some ISPs tried to make Netflix pay, others offered Netflix *faster* speeds.

I see how this is *possibly* a problem if there were maybe one or two ISPs, but there are several and even in this instance, it looks like some tried to play hardball while others didn't. If anything, it seems to be like Netflix is the most evil company here. Why should a company which takes up the largest portion of bandwidth in the United States get to have that share of the market without paying a premium? I don't understand why Netflix shouldn't have to pay for dominating web traffic like that.

Moreover, I do not see how making the single largest user of US internet traffic pay a premium is somehow equivalent to "ISPs have the ability to throttle or outright block what I want to do on the web on a whim". Do you own Netflix or something?

I also support making people pay for luggage on flights. I like toll roads. I think people who drive more should pay higher gas taxes. It has nothing to do with ideology and everything to do with the fact that I subscribe to the radical notion that people should be responsible and accountable for what they use. I don't think that a massive service like Netflix deserves to be subsidized by smaller services.

Cancer would've been cured right now if scienceoligists weren't using shitty internet. Thanks, Obama. More sick patients for him to kill.
