So, they're saying these restrictions will NOT stop you from looking anything up? What part of restriction can't be understood? I heard about a lot of people recently in a study saying they supported restrictions to prevent, of all things, terrorists from using it and to stop porn and other 'offensive' things.

Gee, this may be done by the left, but you know the right will definitely support more restrictions, especially since it cuts into porn and 'offensive' things. We MUST be protected from ourselves, we're like monkeys with guns, we'll end up hurting ourselves.

Sadly the control of the internet is the next logical step for TPTB. To much free information is bad for buisness.

Start by cleaning it up, then control all info like news/media/radio.

S + F!!!!! This whole idea scares me as the internet has become the best replacement for television, busy roads, noisy theaters, alternative news sources and fast access to multiple sources, etc. It is just a great place to get a recipe if I need one fast. I do not want to have to make Google's Apple pie because they get much more bandwidth than the cute old lady's site I used to go to.

This is not a good thing and the free flow of information is a right that should never be taken away from us. If they are doing something to really put the hurt on us this is the best way to do it is take away are ability to communicate with each other. Iran also used this to great success and we did nothing to stop it I believe they wanted to so if it would work.

Ugg the stupidity that permeates our societies decisions knows no bounds. I hope this doesn't come to pass. What a ridiculous waste of time and energy.

Online gamers everywhere will be crying there eyes out if this happens.

Sorry I don't think the sky is falling with this..
This is the internet and if somebody can "hack" the Department of Defense, someone will hack the FCC...and raise hell.
Just saying..

They will try, they will fail.

...and if they do, I will just reinvent another name for the Internet and create it from my house and send fliers around all the doors telling people to invest in WiFi antennas as I would be establishing my own Internet. With 4TB of data, that is enough to occupy thousands of people forever. I have enough books on my hard drives that it would probably take a thousand lifetimes or more to read them. If anything like this happened, I would find a way to distribute my data, I would even organize meetings with the locals of my city, data distribution centers, a place where people can come along with their netbooks and external hard drives in order to exchange data. A network that your not always plugged into, but can access any time you wish to do so. Those are 2 plans I have so far.

One continuous plan for me and should be for all of you, a priority that oversees all; data harvesting and data mining- Get too it!
