    I take it you don't reverse engineer much.

    I'm actually heavily debating it currently. the only thing keeping me in the states currently are the medical specialists who can treat my rare afflictions, otherwise I would've bailed by now.

    Facebook and Netflix and all the other big industry sites won't really change because they make money, the impact will be seen more on small business and streaming sites (like all those anime sites), they will either load slower or not at all at the ISPs choice based on what they're paying for the domain. If you thought annoying pop up advertising was bad now, it's gonna get 100x worse just so the little guys can make rent. Also RIP small free porn sites, only the big boys in the game have the money to stay in business.
    Well everyone's potentially getting bombed by this, both customers and small businesses (maybe even some large ones).

    This has nothing to do with politics.

    all you need to know about this is that in spite of it being an entirely unpopular decision, they are going on with it, and the people that are interested in seeing this happen are the same people that charge you for interent. If you follow the money, like you should always do, then you'll see that these guys do not care about you or what you want and are only interested in increasing their bonus at the end of the year.

    That means more money from you. They see this as an investment. Investments are expected to pay off somewhere. Think about it bucko.. who is their customer? Is this going to increase how many customers they have? No? Then how is this going to pay off? Its on you, one way or another... it slides down hill to the end user. If a site gets squeezed then you pay, and not for that site to be improved or to the staff or the people producing the content you want, but just for it to be allowed to exist. You'll pay a troll toll.

    edit: should be worth noting I doubt it will happen *all of a sudden* but a slow encroachment.

    You may think all gods have huge amounts of courage, but only xbalanque has the balls to use them as weapons.

    According to FFTF, which is leading the anti-NN-repeal efforts, the senate only needs one more vote to overturn the repeal. There may be hope just yet.

    Can't be much worse than USA, maybe I'll try Australia or New Zealand.
