Clarifying Net Neutrality

What John Oliver, H3H3, and others miss about Net Neutrality

LOL There are those old stats I helped put together - he pulled those up from somewhere. Cool. This guy knows his stuff - this is accurate, which means inconvenient for those who will now hate on the video. 

 

Dynamic rate limiting is available today - I worked at a company until 2016 that does it. It goes on today in many network in the US. I sold the products, and verified that they were rate-limiting dynamically as intended.

Yes, the common sense of this issue is simplistic, and comprised mainly of bumper stickers and cartoons. You said you were open to being educated on the complexities though you don't care about the woes of the people who literally make all of this cool shit run - he takes you down a pretty detailed road here.

 

I can answer questions with references to some of the products I helped develop and papers I wrote. This whole world was 12 years of my life - it's pretty interesting. The stuff that happens in the rest of the world - REALLY interesting. Lawful intercept - very interesting.

I got to tell you skeptoid, I was hard core in favor of NN but after watching the entire thing I'm beginning to have my doubts.  There are few things I think he gets wrong, for example where he compares college campuses throttling certain protocols with ISPs throttling the same things, there is no comparison to be made there for reasons I won't bore you with, but the rest of the video really gave me new perspective on the issue.

 

Of course Mr. Fudd above you there is firmly grasping John Oliver's cock in one hand and Steven Colbert's in the other while he strokes furiously in anticipation of their creaming left-wing loads to tell him what to think so anything that isn't hot gooey Marxist cum will have no effect on Mr. Fudd.

You are "playing Dota"?  I figured you'd be out on another Quail hunt Mr. Fudd.

You do understand that you yourself take days to respond to videos, right?  Time passes and activities occur.  You're literally responding 24 hours later.

I know right!  Having an actual life and a great job that takes up a lot of my time just sucks.  I would rather be here waiting for your next comment.

 

LOL

I could also point out that being willfully ignorant of these issues and not engaging with them is part of the reason Trump is ramming the Internet up your asses right now. While you are yelling bumper sticker slogans an industry you may have been able to positively influence is moving on.
