We're Boned Internet, Unless Something Is Done!

The internet is changing for the worse and it's all by the government no less. Share this information and keep everyone informed. Keep the internet free

This is the fourth time such a thing has happened in the past six years. This is exactly what we already dealt with on a daily basis: A free market internet. Nowhere does the ruling actually say they can slow down whatever they want, merely that they can tier prices and services (like they've done since 2005 or prior) and that they can selectively advertise.

Besides, if the government ever tried actually fucking internet rights (which have never actually existed, mind you), we would watch and laugh as anonymous takes down the Fed sites, leaks priceless data, and essentially ruins every single person in the House or Senate (or White House) that supported such a removal of rights.

Also, most of your links 404'd lol

Edit: Forgot to mention, if yesterday is any indication, the government is actually siding with the people more on tech issues lately, since the FTC forced Apple to refund millions of microtransactions on the claim that many children didn't know they were paying for F2P bullshit and that as such Apple's practice was unethical for a business.

I've learned to simply nod my head, since it's consistent and repetitive how new bills come into play, trying to do the same thing. Voice and awareness is always key, but if say that were to fail, like DP said, Anonymous won't play nice.

I'm afraid of, Anonymous getting involved because the not-so-reputable members will hack person info because they're dicks.  Which by those guys, they're primarily in Lulzec which is made of a part of, Anonymous.  Basically, I don't want either of those two groups have to get involved because this means they'll be taking down a lot of services we like and stealing credit cards.  Point is, they'll claim it's to our benefit event though they know full well they're dicking us around.

I despise anonymous and lulzsec, don't get me wrong. They are horrible as the face of "us." However, when actually allied under a banner involving our own well-being, they're trustworthy. Credit card info is rarely stolen by actual members of the group, that's normally reserved for other hacking "teams." Those that ARE stolen by anonymous aren't used, it's merely to make a point (even if the point is as unfounded as what they had against Sony). If the rights of the internet were taken away, we'd pretty much see the government get totally fucked, taken down for weeks. They'd try to retaliate, but then they'd get fucked again. And that's when they would back off again.

Let's just hope it doesn't pass, but I can't say I don't like Lulzec's logo.

Oh it won't. Most congressmen have vouched to protect internet rights during the massive uproar that SOPA and PIPA caused, and if this even gets close to passing the same uproar will happen.

Taking away a mans internet and changing it, is like taking away ones freedom. 

I like my freedom, i like my internet.
