  •  Thanks so much, poopdog. I have been amazed (9+ / 0-)

    at the lack of attention to this on the GOS. I hope this diary gets a lot of attention. This needs to go viral. If Net Neutrality is gutted on a permanent basis-- the internet as we know it will become very much like talk radio--all conservative and corporate -- all of the time.

      ...on services that compete with Google/Verizon. Google/Verizon, meanwhile, could block Vimeo or Blip (or make them intolerably slow, same thing) so as to keep them from competing with YouTube. Meanwhile the resulting loss of mass add revenue (due to the resulting rationing of video into elite niche markets) will be used as an excuse to start charging on a pay-per-view basis.

      Meanwhile all big telecoms will block Wikipedia because "We Can't Compete With Free™".

      ...& don't even think about Daily Kos getting any kind of break from these hard-right corporate fascists.
