So the silver lining with the net neutrality thing is that in the worst case things will just be the way they were in 2013. Which means our favorite tools of public vpn and tor will still work. Depends on how much they cut down our bandwidth. If they cut it down too much, I’ll just make sure to continuously cat urandom over netcat to make sure I at least make them pay for being ridiculous.

    Your post is a good and a bad thing at the same time. It's nice to be thinking and planing ahead, but you've just made the first step towards accepting it...

    @nikola1402 you’re right of course. Was just planning to write a response but you’re just right and that’s all there is too it.

    But the good news is we don’t have to go quietly. I have no faith that Congress will do the right thing.

    @ThatDude I think it is. Internet is more or less a public resource, so we need a way of defining it as such. Were paying isps for the infrastructure to communicate with a trunk line. Most regular jackoffs don’t realize that, so we just need to educate people and they will understand why net neutrality is important. Congress thinks this will give incentive to strengthen infrastructure, but really because of how it works, it is just artificial throttling when we have no choice who our isp is most of the time. It’s basically terrorism.

    @runfrodorun it's an obscure thing for governments all over the world to stand on the side of ordinary people in cases such as this. Only when we present more of a threat to them than the big companies will they ever listen to us. So I completely agree with your tactics and thinking in that manner. Only a fool would do anything risky without a backup plan :)

    @nikola1402 I like the way you said that.

    @runfrodorun thanks. The important thing is to never forget how the victory over SOPA/PIPA was achieved. It can be done again :)

    @nikola1402 man I’d almost forgot about that. Hey, as much as I hate google, a lot of these big ass companies are lobbying for net neutrality. That’s got to help.
