I'm sorry you're lacking in comprehension and wish to paint words you don't like as "buzzword bingo".
Regulation: That's when the government passes laws or regulations (see that word!) which mandate things. For example, the requirement to have health insurance is regulation. It requires the purchasing of a product without regulating its price.
De-regulation: That's when the government removes its rules. For example, the time when the FCC said not to worry about zero rating content let alone VZW's and AT&T's own content.
"If there was only some way to deal with this problem."
Perhaps if you understood the problem instead of being rude and condescending, and THEN even offered a solution, someone would listen.
But... then... you don't even have the gumption to sign your own name. The right to speak anonymously IS guaranteed, but that doesn't mean anyone has to take a coward's word to mean anything.
The esteemed congressman doesn't get it, which means the aide whose job it is to brief him didn't, and the congressman whose job it is to be informed isn't. That's not very unusual, but it is highly disenheartening and disappointing. Still, in today's pile of Republican-party senators it's not far outside the curve.
Worse yet, these are the same people who want to regulate what they don't control, de-regulate what they do-control, and have no common thematic presence as to how regulation (and de-regulation) play into closing or opening markets (or Internet provider behavior).
Net Neutrality is a good thing because it allows equal access without extra pay.
This senator is a joke... but my saying so won't get him less votes by his p.o.s. constituents (whom he doesn't "represent") voting him into office again.
I asked a TSA guy feeling me up if I could have his phone number. He called over his TSA supervisor to tell me that what I said constituted "Sexual Harassment" and I could be arrested right there for it.
I've been called "E-Male" (because my friends call me "E" for Ehud) for a long long time.
That dash between E and Male is just there to make it clear that don't call me Ehmolly. It's E Male.
Don't be hating on me because I come from a foreign country or have a name you think is funny. I'm still Emale. I wanted to get a patent on it but they didn't have any when I was born on Possible Future Nicknames™. I wanted to get a trademark but I wasn't using it in commerce. I wanted to get a copyright but nowadays everything's covered by copyright so I FREAKING HAVE ONE.
"Some might argue that means it has an axe to grind against the authorities and secret services, making its report less credible"
Some might argue that if you're a reporter reporting on facts you should state those facts, not attempt to slide them into a "some might argue" statement without saying which way YOU argue.
Some might argue that "has an axe to grind" is passing a judgment on an entire site. If done prior to reading the material that constitutes pre-judgment or in simple words prejudice.
Some might argue that "making its report less credible" is an attempt to claim exactly that lack of credibility without saying so.
Stop pussy-footing around. If there's no issue why would you say these things? If there is an issue why would you not?
Innuendo and implied nonspecifics is the hallmark of the disparagement lawyer letters. Some might argue that if you have an axe to grind you should step away from the article and let someone without one write it. That would make the report more credible.
Re: Re: Re: Didn't work here in Australia, irrespective of what the pollies say.
"... then ok... they can have the guns."
You are welcome to give up YOUR rights and YOUR firearms and prance around in tights all day long, but you don't get to give away my rights or anyone else's rights or "the guns" as you so call them.
The right to bear arms including firearms is enshrined in the United States Constitution and I don't give a hoot what criteria you just pulled out of your backside based on which you're willing to undermine that.
I have nothing substantive to add except for my support of TD both in terms of always donating as much as I can... in spreading word of its successes (and now its challenges) and in getting people fired up to support TD.
I would love to see MR or KW or any of the other "extremely effective" players in 1st AM defense make a move here, and am patiently waiting for that, as well as the "okay okay, donate to us" page.
I did try to get some background info for you... I called Dell Technical Support and asked who invented email and the guy on the other end said "Shiva Ayyadurai, idiot"... in a Mumbai accent... and hung up on me. /s
