    You are several orders of magnitude worse than Hitler during the worst minute of his worst day. Times infinity.

    Net Neutrality forever! Vote green not blue!

    This blogs sucks.

    And where's the snacks?

    Indeed, I do not, yet that's precisely what the proposed NN legislation is all about. Telling providers they can't charge for specific services.

    That is not the same thing as saying they can't recoup their investment (e.g., the telcos could charge everyone more across the board -- if everyone ultimately benefits, as in the pre-boarding example, why shouldn't we all pay more).

    So, you are continuing to conflate a specific billing method w/ "progress." (Or maybe, exhibiting a knee-jerk "all regulation is bad" libertarianism).

    No, it isn't, but it's still dictating what business models are allowed, and those will naturally evolve just as the technology implementations do. That's where Congress should not be playing.

    , the telcos could charge everyone more across the board -- if everyone ultimately benefits, as in the pre-boarding example, why shouldn't we all pay more

    Certainly we could all pay more, but those who will see the most benefit can pay on top of that. Back to pizza and toppings.

    So, you are continuing to conflate a specific billing method w/ "progress."

    No, I am not. I'm saying Congress should stay out of specific billing methods. Period. Enough with the strawmen.

    (Or maybe, exhibiting a knee-jerk "all regulation is bad" libertarianism).

    Yeah, that's exactly it, which is why I'm arguing to get rid of all regulation. Well played, sirrah.
