See, your problem is that you seem to assume everyone here takes Wheeler as some sort of god of net neutrality. He's pretty good, especially considering where he came from. He did some good things. Didn't push enough for other things. But then, he is also not god off the FCC with unlimited power to set rules as he sees them. Certainly not given others in the FCC.
So you are shouting at nothing. No one "bought into" Wheeler. He was a good improvement over things that have been before, but i have seen no one here having some grand illusions about him.
Maybe that's why your "argument" just rolls past everyone.
isp routers are frequently gateways with multiple functions including that of a "modem" hardware component to connect to their network if Ethernet isn't the incoming cable. some "routers"* can do it too.
most of these are far more than routers, although that became the generic term for boxes with a varying set of functions all bundled together with the router aspect.
Maybe one needs two, maybe one doesn't. It depends.
Or the atmosphere, just for carrying sound waves. And the countries the terrorists are from, or live in, or acted in (oops). And any phone company, anyone with a public WAP that may have been used, ISP's, and the terrorists' parents. And anyone who ever may have walked past one without stopping them ahead of time.
Seriously the stupidest thing about this is that they want to go after public spaces on the net where everyone else can see what they are doing, even if they (or the platform) can't tell it is part of an evil plot up front. And they don't seem to want to litigate against any medium where they can't see the presence of the criminals who did the attack (or whatever). Not that they should, but there is something deeply infantile about the unrecognized "distinction" these people are drawing here*.
*Some are. I am sure plenty get swept into it via rhetoric and emotional manipulation as well. Still i don't know how anyone can see it as a sensible idea.
That isn't Tim fat-shaming, it's Trump. He's suggesting that the people Trump is so derisive towards (slurs included) would clearly be better for the job. Which, incidentally, is noted in the statement via the word "referenced". _"someone sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds."_ It had nothing to do with anyone being assholes, and everything to do with the hack being done by any number of other actors besides Russians.
In any other cases, they would keep quiet, find suspicious ads on these sites, take reports, and conduct investigations. Prosecutors and LEOs would decline to say how they originally discovered suspects because it would harmfully reveal investigative techniques.
But theater is more important, and there is more theater on the front end here.
Part of the problem here is that if the USPTO will grant marks of this nature, they should all be fine if the marks are different. What happened to the days of many companies using the same popular or locale words in their names with no trouble at all?
I don't know, but i find people who are self-aggrandizing and immune to facts deserve some insults occasionally. You know, like in response to their bullshit after the facts (which must already be known to him anyway) are repeatedly pointed out.
