[hardocp] 49% of Americans Want FCC to Regulate Internet - Page 3  

post #21 of 59
1500 people from where? Just because it's 1500 people doesn't quite mean that the blind sample isn't bias

Some regulation is never a bad thing but comparing it to TV and Radio is a bad thing ( post Bush administration ).

There is a point where censorship may be necessary (such as with rap and hip hop music which has no purpose for its wearing), but for the most part it ruins songs and shows when the actual language that would be used in such a situation cannot be and is either replaced or censored.

If this ever happens, there will be some sad porn addicts, which would likely raise the U.S. rate of rape and molestation. (seriously)

The Internet is heading towards regulation, simple as that. Regardless of the fact that people can just grow some balls and not kill themselves because of what someone says through a practically anonymous network. More people should be treating MySpazz like /b/ instead of the real people standing next to them. They'd be better off.

Good god if people treated myspace as /b/, the entire world is pretty much ****ed...

Censorship is bad. Always. NEVER CENSOR ANYTHING! NEVER! NO CENSORS! DOWN WITH THE CENSORS! What's to stop them from moving on to phrases that might offend, then to entire ideas? I don't know about you, but I don't want to be forced to share my automatic V6 pickup with every comrade on the block because I happen to own the only vehicle the govermnent allows to be made...do you?

I'm sorry but if they ever want the right to censor the internet. They will have to ask every single person who has ever owned a computer and draw a statistic from that. They need everyone to vote for a new president or prime-minister. Then ask everyone what they think should be done with the internet. I mean. The entire world is affected by this. Never mind the people who took this survey. What about the idiots who conducted it. GET A LIFE.

One thing most people should be aware of, is that if it were not for the porn sites, we would still be using lynx. It is because of the porn sites that we have things like web cams, video streaming and fast internet speeds. Video on demand was pioneered by porn sites. Same with web chat, image storage and categorization SW and a host of other apps. The first commercial use of a web cam was a porn star on an SGI O2.
People should know this and be aware of the technology being driven by the porn industry...
(and the link to rape and molestation has been proven time and again false.)

These are the same 1500 people that were the only ones to show up and vote in the last presidential election... They were still in line for their prize!

Forget that, just cut off the fingers... It would be much more difficult for them to use computers afterwards.


49% of 1500 people.... they probably gave out the survey at a Angry Mothers convention, full of a bunch of angry ______'s that get together to complain about everything and yet do nothing but cause more problems.


Its just like how they are trying to start censoring Sirus and XM radio, when I bought my XM radio I bought it because it wasn't censored... When I bought my internet, I didn't pay for AOL.
