    If we could..

    WE HAVE a law about truth in advertising and it gets enforced, once in a while..
    WHY cant we get that for TRUTH in what the corps and our gov say..

    Its getting REALLY deep in this world..and we are SUPPOSED to be the better country..Everywhere ELSE is supposed to be ridden with lies, conspiracies, BS..
    WE SHIP our garbage out, WHY cant we do it with BS..

    Consider the COST..
    RENT/pay to get it published..
    Make ?? copies to each distributors..
    PRAY you get enough people to the theaters to get MONEY BACK...
    (Distribution system owned by the corps and costs TONS to use)

    end up paying MORE to get people to see it, and to the distribution system, then you would GIVING IT AWAY..

    "But it's a little hard to do that when you lack the choice of an alternative provider, or the ISPs that are available aren't clear about their network management practices, something net neutrality rules required. "

    1 corps OWNS the whole thing, and puts up Smaller companies that they CONTROL, or can restrict...

    Why not let them GOTO COURT..
    USE up their money..Suggest to the 1 side that this is not costing them much UNTIL the other side can Bring up ANY pertinent claims..

    this is really starting to look like SHOTGUNNING..
    Tons of lawyers trying to get a hit with ANY SORT of attempt to SUE somebody..Anybody.
    Pounding on the system to see IF' they can find a hole or CREATE ONE.. Get 1 case passed/working, or 1 Judge to SIDE with them, and MANY more using the same tactic will pile on..

    Anti competition??

    WHY is all of this Surrounding control from the FCC??
    Our Police agencies want to Include Bugs in server, router, and modem..AND CISCO, fighting Competition in this same area, really sounds like 1 corp willing to do it, compared to another that WONT..

    How many persons here, are using 2-4 gen phones, rather then CURRENT TECH??? that costs TONS MORE..

    What ever happened to the Thought/idea of capitalism..
    open trade

    Made in Japan
    Lets include all the parts we USE, that arnt made in the USA.
    Cheaper ISNT always better...but IT IS CHEAPER..
    DOES a higher price mean it will last longer?? NOPE.
    Econ 101
    Its not how much you PAY its how MANY you can sell..

    Infrastructure has been laid..

    A large old candy store has gotten bought out..
    It has allot of older equipment and is a very sturdy building.
    Everything works to Start making candy.

    The TV/CABLE/SAT/PHONE/CELL system is the same way.
    ITS ALL pre-built.
    Lots of Old telephone poles, Underground installations, remote Towers..
    WHY fix it, while its making money?
    Why upgrade it? Why make it better?
    They dont have to do anything except TAKE the money.

    interesting points..

    I wonder how I can connect to India and Russia witht eh internet when they have not Created their own internet..

    I love the idea that the Religious fanatics are trying to take over the net..
    Jewish/Israel and Christian doom sayers. And the "Im right, they are WRONG" attitude they bring with them.,.

    NOw you stand on the other side and SAY the same thing.. Make a site, post what you will, and let them buy you out.

    Re: Re: Century link??

    Thank you for expressing an opinion..
    Do I care? Probably not.
    For a language that was Re-hashed by Mr. Webster, WHO hated the english language..and changed many words, meanings, and Pronunciations..

    Lets ad that our language is a conglomerate of Many languages and the RULEs from those languages that dont make sense in any other language..

    It always entertains me when we Bring another word over from French, and CAUSE it uses the same letters, we dont change it to AMERICAN(not english). and we have to learn another word that does not mix with 6 other Rules of language..
    This language has no inference or common expression that can be handled with JUST typing.. Like opening a random book to a random page and TRYING to figure out the expression and meaning of what is being said. Is is exasperated, Excited, Condoling, ???.. Even with the words above you cant tell any expression except that Im typing words..

    So good luck with your language...Mine is JUST weird.

    Century link??

    WOW, DSL..And max 7mBps..

    I wonder how much they would have spent IF' that had jumped into the city and JUST DONE THE WORK..

    Colorado is interesting as there are NOT that many METRO areas. Its smaller towns and so forth, mean that Century link has LITTLE TO DO..

    BUT the best part is the USERS of Centruy link, will have to PAY abit extra for all the BS Century link stop 1 town from doing THEIR OWN THING..

    Re: Re: The internet is special..

    Conformity is a bad word to use..

    If someone is just entering random text and comments that have NOTHING to deal with the subject, Yes, cut them off from THAT 1, debate/comment section..NOT the whole site.

    What really, Kinda makes this country Great is ALL opinions..As long as a person is willing to Say them, we need to listen and understand their point.

    Re: The actual reason

    I agree, abit..

    You can tell the idiots from the rest..And avoid them, if possible.

    I like the SELF moderation method..Where the GROUP decides to send a notice to the Sysop about comments..NOT the CORP, NOT the ISp, no one else..JUST the group..

    But it also lets everyone have a say, and also LEARN from others words..

    HOW about teaching kids a work ethic..When they are Young, and not waiting until they are 16..even tho the gov. says they are not SUPPOSED to work until they are 16..
    How about teaching kids the basics of Construction, car repair, welding, Metal shop, and Tons of other things THEIR PARENTS cant..

  • Jan 12th, 2018 @ 1:08pm


    Lets teach people HOW NOT to buy crap at the store, that was Made to look pretty and do nothing..
    Lets teach Corps to make/have made Products that are Worth buying..That last more then a few years..
    Lets teach manufacturers that Building something DESIGNED to fail on a $0.01 part, when a $0.10 part would make it last forever is a better idea.
    Lets teach corps that use Stocks, as Long term, Low interest loans, that never need to be paid back...That stock holders are NOT BANKS..
    LETS teach everyone HOW capitalism is SUPPOSED to work, and how WE can STOP them from over pricing CHEAP goods as if they are gold..

    Re: How odd

    I would love that..
    Ammo from the same source as the drug tests...
    90% chance of failure..

    Re: What!? F'ing Bullshit.

    Love those sites...
    10-50 scripts that do anything/everything EXCEPT make it worth writing something.
    After all the trackers, advert monitors, 3rd party crap..Then you get a chance to say something..
    EXCEPT, that they are fools to do SCRIPTING..

    The internet is special..

    In that it lets Everyone be Anyone and OPEN UP THEIR OWN PERSONALITY..

    Be it good, bad, weird, stupid, What ever..
    Its OPEN expression..and instant feedback..

    Then there is the idea of SELF POLICING..
    If enough people bitch about 1 person, the Sysop will look and see if ANYTHING the person is doing/saying is valid, or worth comment..Then take the action needed..

    EVERYONE communicates differently..NOT everyone can TYPE/SPELL/SAY/EXPRESS themselves properly..and learning is on BOTH SIDES..and CAN HELP those that need abit of a push to get THEMSELVES a better use/understanding/expression of HOW to talk/type/say/express themselves..

    I would LOVe to setup a Forum for Congress and reps, and WATCh all the BS being passed around..BUT that would have to be restricted and Forbidden to Everyone NOT part of the group.

    Myself, I have explained/taught/expressed to friends of many types, How some of this works, and by PLAYING with words, and taking things out of context...and they have learned and (I THINK) become better at expressing themselves.. and 1-2 have even gone to READING MORE, and understanding WHAT is being said..

    YES, I WRITE FUNNY..but the AMERICAN language is a befuddled conglomerate of rules and regulations from to many other languages that Mean little or nothing to other parts of our language,, and 90% of you dont even know where the LETTERS in our language come from. ANd just because SOME languages use the SAME STYLE of letters, does NOT MEAN ITS ENGLISH..

    Lets ask what this would really do...
    Insted of reporting a Advert/TEXT/Want AD/??? that has something to DO WITH HUMAN TRAFFICKING... The Owner of the site has to take it DOWN..and destroy it..

    So what does the person who POSTED it do..
    He goes underground, and not public.

    Think about those involved..
    You need to kidnap a Person/child..WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS..MONEY.
    Then you have to SELL the person/child..WHY?? MORE MONEY..
    Break down numbers say that MAYBE 100 children are taken per year, AT MOST.
    ANd if there REALLY is a market for this, it is in the USA and NO ONE is shipped out of the country..

    So we have a bunch of RICH people PAYING GREAT amounts of money to BUT children..
    You probably wont do this Much inside a Large someone MIGHT notice something or the PERSON escape.
    So, yo have a residence and CAGE/CHAIN what ever is needed outside of the main areas PEOPLE RESIDE..
    AS with any need to feed it, and clean up After it..
    These person MUST be Fairly rich..ion 1 way or another.

    Persecuting ONLINE sites or REAL NEWSPAPERS or those that just MONITOR their own STUPID.
    ANd anything they do, will FORCE this underground where you WONT SEE IT..Where it CANT be reported.

    This is as bad as regulating CRAP(yes #2)..we all do may not see it much, but you know the other person DOES IT ALSO.. But if you regulate it, they will just Blame it on the DOG..

    Re: Ignorance is Strength*

    The problem here is THEIR LAWYER...

    He only let them file that the Police LIED..
    ANd he couldnt PROVE it.

    He could show Any other way to ID the product..
    He could PROVE the test was faulty..
    HE could Prove that the training was WRONG..

    HE could have TRIED to prove that a 20 year veteran, SHOULD have other ways to examine the Product.. OR that he did NOT follow sending it in to be evaluated PROPERLY..Give me <5 min and I could tell you...EASY.

    BUT he did not file it to PROVE anything..I would Sue the lawyer.
