2012: Doomsday? Or just the end of the internet

Save The Internet!

Remember the 40,000 blowjobs from belgiumpost from a while back?  The same group of people behind that political stunt has been pretty active on the internet lately trying to save net neutrality lately.  Apparently they have some insider information from a few top ISPs confirming their plans for a tiered internet system.

If you haven’t heard anything about net neutrality;  THIS IS BAD.   As they correctly put, it would basically lead to the end of the internet.  It would change your internet subscription to something like the way you pay for television.  You’d buy the basic package and have access to wikipedia, yahoo, msn, nbc, abc, disney, etc or you could go for a bigger/more expensive package which includes google, youtube, myspace, facebook, etc.  (These aren’t official listings, just examples.)

Why is this bad? For one, it gives ISPs too much control over what you can and can’t view.  There are many people out there who make a living off of their websites.  Unfortunately these people will probably have to go get a new job since the traffic to their websites would drastically drop(unless they can afford to pay ISPs to include their website in one of the cheap tiers.)

MMORPGs or any multi-player games? You’d have to purchase a higher tier package to connect to these custom servers and you’d see a drop in players/competition because not everyone will want to pay this much.

PORN? Porn would probably be in a tier all to itself and probably wouldn’t be heavily advertised.  You’re pretty well fucked if you only use the internet for porn.

  2. You guys are idiots, the internet is forever.
    Do you even know what the magnitude of the fantasy is that you are explaining? How many companies use the internet? I am a developer of games, we will make another internet if commercial companies decide to limit it. Ineternet is forever, don’t fear, create.
