    Code of Conduct

    The FCC, a federal court... and JUB

    The FCC is getting ready to make new rules about how the internet works. They were required to come up with new ones by a January federal court (U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit) decision that the FCC exceeded its legal authority with its existing net neutrality regulations and struck down the Open Internet Order.

    The chairman claims that the new rules will restore an open internet, but what he's hiding is that they will allow ISPs to charge extra for access to services, either after the fashion of cable TV and its packages, or by charging content providers for access to the ISPs customers.

    So if the new rules are sustained (the public comment period is open), then providers such as AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink, etc. could decide to charge JUB to connect through their service, or could charge their users an extra fee to get to any sites with porn, or even both.

    Of course it's not hard to understand why the FCC is aiming to sell out the internet: Chairman Wheeler is a corporate lobbyist with a record of favoring companies big enough to be de facto monopolies.

    (also has lots of further information)


    Acting on this is in all our best interests.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Yeah another cluster fuck. Thanks President Obama. He appointed this man. Obama also said he was against this exact thing happening when elected and vowed to expand broadband and try to bring the price inline. He of course has failed. Its not shocking and the FCC like the FDA are just the enforcers for corporate greed. They sit back and let the hate flow to the Government when they are directly running this shit ship.

    The Bell system is among the worst example of greed in history. Since its takeover of ISPs they've gotten away with ridiculously highcosts for service that ranks below even the third world. There's nothing good about them.

    Some economist I once read actually predicted that government regulatory boards or commissions will always end up owned by the very people they're supposed to regulate. I wish I could remember how the argument went -- but it sure has proven true!

    It's called "regulatory capture" and it is theorised in some detail.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulatory_capture
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Thanks -- there's more in there than I knew of.

    The presentation I recall pointed out that legislators seem to automatically turn to industry people to fill regulatory positions because they're "experts" in their industries, and that "expertise" is needed, so the transition from regulating to protecting is both inevitable and quick.

    Welcome to the future of the internet, please provide your own lubricant.
    If you can't be part of the solution, there is plenty of money to be made being a part of the problem.

    Re: The FCC, a federal court... and JUB

    President Obama has spoken in favor of NET NEUTRALITY!

    From moveon.org
    Here's what President Obama said:

    I personally, the position of my administration... is that you don't want to start getting a differentiation in how accessible the Internet is to different users.

    You want to leave it open so the next Google and the next Facebook can succeed.
    Very possibly one of the most important proclamations he will ever make, and I KNOW that I'm not going to see or hear it covered on the "evening news," or MSNBC, Fox News, or anywhere else.

    Except maybe Rush, which DEFINITELY somebody else will need to "listen to for me." His audio filth, and me, cannot exist in the same space. Of course if he talks about it, he will yammer on about how entirely awful it is that "the monkey president is denying marketplace and jobs to workers" or something. Yes, having corporate control of the internet would indeed create jobs...for all the wrong reasons.

    This is something that would have never been possible under President Romney, who is entirely in favor of complete corporate control of the internet.
    BOSS: I'm sorry, but I'll have to lay you and Jack off.
    SUE: Can you just jack off? I feel like shit today.

    Things that come to those who wait, are often left over from whoever got there first. (source: pharmaceutical spam 2007)

    So is he just going to dribble words out of his mouth, or actually order the FCC to maintain net neutrality? I'm not hopeful, because the record shows he's good at making pronouncements and then doing absolutely nothing.

    Actions speak louder then words. HIm being in favor means nothing if he allows this to go through.

    Re: The FCC, a federal court... and JUB

    You guys are right, but I do consider this the first "high-up" political comments I've heard in favor of this, other than from Bernie Sanders. At least it's helping to get the issue out there...a little bit.

    I think even after this, it's still an extremely small percentage of the American public who are aware of the concept of "net neutrality" at all, and they just take the Interwebzz for granted.

    People will only realize what this does after it has already taken effect.
    And it will be too late by then.
