I will neither sign nor veto this bill. Instead, I call on the General Assembly to revisit this issue and adopt rules that not only promote fairness but also allow for the greatest number of high quality and affordable broadband options for consumers.

I'll give her credit for not signing it, But not Vetoing it? Excuse Me?! What?!?!?!

political...

$5 says this will be closed for being too political, which I find absolutely ridiculous. But then again we're not allowed to swear either, so....

I don't get why the government wants to control the internet in one way or another. They don't understand how it works so they shouldn't try to restrict it.

Maybe I misread the article, I don't know.

Clearly you have no idea what's really going on then.

Ok, so i didn't read the rules. I do however follow my own common sense. and quite frankly i think that is ridiculous. i can agree with no cuss-words (not like we have any choice, the site blocks them out automatically), but this is just too far. i thought i lived in a country where i have the freedom to speak my mind....

Tbh, I think topics like this should be allowed. What community cares most about these issues? Us. But yet we don't have a platform to discuss these issues within our community.

So what if it has a political background? WHO does this kind of move impact?
US. This is "News for Overclockers". As Computer users we are reliant on the internet to even access this site.

Censorship in the government reminds the mods too much of what they are doing at OCN.

I'm kidding, mods, I'll suck your joysticks.
