The Truth vs. The Bullshit About Net Neutrality — 12 Comments

  1. Finally , something that actually makes sense and is practical information without marketing some worthless crap like a permaculture certificate !

    You put out some good homesteading stuff, but most of the rest I have simply ignored as marketing crap ! You are a good bullshitter for sure and fooled greater fools, that is what I have observed. Your claims to be a business guy are ludicrous. Stick with the homesteading ideas. That is your best schmooze.

  2. Jack,

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for what you do and the always appreciated excellent quality that you bring to the members of the MSB, and your regular listeners.

    Regards,

  3. Wow…a case of “I know hardware so I know….”

    Why are you missing the overall point?

    I’m as big or bigger libertaian for civil rights as you. i also am 100% capitalist.

    But (and we know anything before “but” is horse shit) bits are bits. It doesn’t cost any more to move 1 bit of email than 1 bit of a hit movie. And just because you want to move 1 bit of a movie from your server it cost no more than the other guy to move 1 bit from his more popular server. You can CHARGE the other guy more to move his bit. But then, you had better charge EVERY OTHER guy the same more. They can then pass on the price increase to their customers.

    But you better not screw with the speeds or caps of YOUR customers because they pay for a certain level of service no matter what they use that service for. SO, the information super highway is NEUTRAL just like a real highway is neutral. Everyone uses it up to a certain speed, for as long as they want for what they want. You want faster you pay for it.

    AND NOW I just realized what I said is wrong in a way. Trucks haul bigger loads, they pay more to use it than cars. Wow…self defeating argument. hmmm…uncle.

    • Wow I can’t even bother to try to respond to that, so absolutely missing the point.

      Sure a bit is a bit, but HOW MANY AT ONE TIME IS THE ISSUE.

      That is not how this works, that is not how any of this works is my only real reply to you.

      Google bursty traffic to start comprehending this issue.

      • Um sorry I guess you saw your own flawed argument in the end, if so well done.

        FWIW I put some line breaks in your block of text it is easier to read now. I suggest people use the return key in comments, it helps others actually get your point a lot better.

  4. Excellent summary. As you’ve said before, we must look at who’s advocating for this and how they (not we) benefit.

  5. All I needed to hear was “more government control”.

    The comparison of the Patriot Act, Freedom Act and Affordable Care Act is precious.

    Thanks, Jack
