“Net Neutrality” Now. Oh, And Happy Thanksgiving! (November 20, 2017)

. . .

K          “The proposed elimination of the regulations that provide some measure of protection for net neutrality was slated to be foisted on the folks just before Thanksgiving.”

J          “They are getting a jump on sneakiness this holiday season.  They usually sneak such things by the people just before Christmas.”

. . .

K          “Maintaining net neutrality is critical and pivotal.  Someone defined net neutrality as the principle that Internet service providers and governments regulating the Internet should treat all data on the Internet the same.  They should not discriminate or charge differentially by user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.”

J          “Sounds like the Equal Protection Clause of the Internet.”

K          “Or the Due Process Clause of the Internet.”

. . .

K          “The folks at Battle For the Net and Fight For the Future are battling and fighting for us.”

J          “I dropped a dime on my Congresspeople and demanded that they protect true net neutrality.”

. . .

K          “Some stores are already foisting their Groundhog Day stuff on us.”

J          “I’ve seen that before.”
