Congress just keeps pushing for this. People throw a fit, Congress backs off... until the corporations pay them to try again, and again, and again.

So basically, the ones who win are greedy as fuck internet providers who want to
compete with each other in terms of making more cash, which can in turn, fuck
over the populace.

And the hell of it all is that they already have super expensive packages already,
but without this little block, they could increase it further.

What a very...Republican thing to do.

And that's just the money end. Now say I start promoting the idea on this site that Comcast is a shit company that shits on everyone. If they get wind of it they can just throttle or block the traffic on this website to try and control the message.

It'll probably die down like it did so many times before, and return to the land of retarded ideas from where it came.

I hope. But considering Trump already signed a law halting net privacy protections despite it having over 90% disapproval, I worry. It doesn't help that Ajit Pai is one of his flunkies.

By the way, Republicans are always talking about dead voters, but what about dead people supposedly supporting ending neutrality? Oh brother, is the fix ever in on this one.
