If you don’t know what I’m talking about, a quick Google search will do the trick. Many articles are uploaded as we speak. In a nutshell, the freedom to browse the internet will be, possibly, no more by the end of this year.

Here’s the most recent as of my post here...

Haha, I actually read about how the last issue was back then. Hopefully this doesn't go through.

Probably just fake news to take people's attention from more important issues. I can't see it actually happening, but if it does, that's just further proof that the rich are happy to get richer from the exploitation of the poor.

there's alot of fight against the bill, so I doubt it will pass.... but crazier things have happened before.

Yeah, I've seen how it's unlikely to be passed, but I guess it's true that you never know sometimes...

Everyone has a price, sadly some people have a lower price.

I read that one of the Senators FOR the bill took a 96K payout to be in support of it. 96K to literally destroy the internet into a "pay to play" setup full of micro-transactions...it's like they are trying to have it run by EA.

Wow, that’s mad.

I guess it’ll all be settled tomorrow, though. We’ll know the future of the web after the votes are in.

Now that Net Neutrality has been repealed...

This might be going to court... ?

I honestly don't think it's as big of a deal as people are making it out to be. I keep seeing people posting things saying netlix is gonna charge $10 per movie and it's gonna cost $15 a month for twitter and shit, but there is just no way. Even if they start charging extra it won't be that much because most people just can't afford it. They wouldn't charge the highest price that a few people would pay, they would charge the highest price that the most people would be willing to pay. And i really doubt they would be maximizing profits by charging $10 per movie on netflix.

That's true, and at least it's gonna be likely that this issue is being taken to Congress, hopefully...
