  •  There Was No Trick Built into My Question (0+ / 0-)

    it was in the plainest possible English imaginable, so I'll repeat it.  I'm not trying to trap you with trick words or anything:

    If the technology existed (I don't care if it's magic) to block the law violating traffic but support all others, would you be okay with exempting that unlawful traffic from net neutrality?

    I cannot imagine a more straightforward question than this.  Yes or no?

    •  I understood your question completely (2+ / 0-)

      But I didn't think it was complete. I didn't give a "Yes or no" answer, because I think it depends on how the "magic" is implemented:

      Who decides (0+ / 0-)

      what's allowable and what's not allowable.

      Who writes the "technology" you referred to you in your comment?

      Letting a corporation decides what gets through and what doesn't will be ripe for abuse, imo.

      The crooks are leaving have left office, unprosecuted and scot-free fully funded, thanks SCOTUS.

      •  OK (0+ / 0-)

        Say it's implemented in such a way that ONLY unlawful traffic is prevented and (heck I'll take it a step further) no capture or reporting is done on who was trying to do what, it's just blocked.  How about then?

        •  I'm not sure why (3+ / 0-)

          you're so eager for me to answer a hypothetical.

          It's clear my view is that I don't want corporations to have the power to do this.

          The same "magic" is still in your reformulated question, thus my previous comments stand.

          Take care and thanks for your comments.
