Re: Net Neutrality in 15 minutes
Update on his Sunday show...

"John Oliver Helps Rally 45,000 Net Neutrality Comments To FCC

Things are running smoothly now, but the Federal Communications Commission's public commenting system was so waylaid by people writing in on Monday that the agency had to send out a few tweets saying "technical difficulties" due to heavy traffic affected its servers.
....
.... he went on a 13-minute rant about net neutrality, ending with a plea to Internet commenters of the troll variety to "for once in your lives, focus your indiscriminate rage in a useful direction. Seize your moment, my lovely trolls!" "

A blazing fast internet speed lane and a slow lane, coming soon.
 Quoting: Sunset Voulebard


more kind of a lane for the town bus and a lane for everyone else.
To live is to believe in the power of dreams! To dream is to believe in the power of love! To love is to Know the truth!
The Desire to Be fuel the belief that you Are which ignite the Will to Become which bring back forth the desire to be...
Let it be-come you! It means Stop seeking your higher self! It is seeking you! Stand still in your mind to calm the waters of your mind and then it shall find you, so you can ride those waves together!
your true self lies somewhere between your heart and your consciousness. It is called the heart consciousness,which is the creator, which is you!
The heart create the emotions and our mind evoke its purpose, from which we dream the life we live in order to imagine the nature of reality and finally remember love!

The highest Purpose of our mind is the ability to Forget! Go on and Forgive yourself!
There is no love in truth but there is truth in love!
Be authentic, nobody else can do it for you!

Re: Net Neutrality in 15 minutes
I do not understand why this is a thing. Don't I pay for my bandwidth? Why does it matter what sites I go to? What do the sites have to do with it? If people are using too much bandwidth then charge them more.

Why would sites have to pay for bandwidth the users have already paid for?

They sure make it clear that anyone who complains will be outed publicly. Does this bother anyone else?

My thread was pinned?!?!? Wow!

And I guess it helped some -- the FCC site was *overwhelmed* by comments.

Well -censored- me, this is some -censored- right there.

It's not like -censored- will do something about it. After all, -censored- of speech is crucial for a -censored- society.

What the -censored- is GLP good for is everything is -censored-?

Excellent comment at the bottom of the article submitted to the FCC:

Here were my comments:

To the FCC:

I support net neutrality, and strongly encourage you to throw out your proposed two-tier “paid prioritization” rules and instead reclassify ISPs as common carriers. The FCC needs to regulate the internet under Title II common carrier rules, as originally laid out by Congress in the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

Also, I strongly encourage Chairman Tom Wheeler to resign his position immediately. He is obviously and embarrassingly in a conflict-of-interest position, and seems incapable of making impartial and objective policy decisions.

 Quoting: npr.org

Trying to bring GLP together. I'm still collecting flags from posters all over the world. Thread: Official "Flags from around the world" thread. Hoping to get posts from all countries that frequent GLP.

Re: Net Neutrality in 15 minutes
This is just a failure of ISP's not providing promised services over the last 20 years because they refuse to invest in better equipment and refuse to allow competing ISP's to function in their towns/cities. Lets end this bullshit exclusive to one ISP per a town shit.

Thread: Who needs CISSPA when the whole world decides to 'crack down' on data privacy?

Who needs CISSPA when the whole world decides to 'crack down' on data privacy?

I work for a very large phrama company. A few days ago we had a mandatory briefing on Data Privacy.

It became very clear in the first 30 minutes that the rules they are implementing (between Europe's strict data privacy laws and transfer of data across borders) will shortly cause the paralyzation of the internet.

Of course that won't stop major companies from swapping data in secret or governments from spying on you, but it will make it nearly impossible for small businesses to take advantage of the global marketplace without breaching these 'international' laws -- the fines and sanctions are very steep!

It is my humble opinion that all of this hullaballoo about the NSA (which most of us already knew about years ago) and now things like this:

[link to www.washingtonpost.com]

Are only orchestrated talking points to get people behind the 'idea' of data privacy and the 'paralyzaton' of the internet for *our own safety*.

I hadn't really made up my mind about this until today, but it is my opinion that nothing will stop these people from getting what they want and if they cannot convince our congress to enact a CISSPA-like referendum then they will simply go around it and force the US to comply with everyone else, thereby enacting by default.
