Media Urges Trump To Think Of Children Before Ending DACA: Ignores 2 Million Homeless American Kids submitted by Thalean to politics

Xicronic 0 points 41 points (+41|-0) ago

Maybe once we're all living in mansions with robot butlers, we can start helping kids from other shitty countries. But I don't want a penny of American money spent on illegals, people breaking our laws that aren't from our culture, community, and sometimes don't even speak our language, to get help when we still have our own problems.

Which companies use Acceptable Ads? The eyeo program named "Acceptable Ads" is used by:

Adblock Plus on desktop and iOS
Adblock Browser on iOS and Android
AdBlock extensions
Crystal on iOS and Android

... So what can be done? Install a better ad blocker. On desktop, uBlock Origin gets my vote as a free, open-source, and reliable browser extension.

*Please Stop Using Adblock / Adblock Plus and Use uBlock Origin

This completely goes against the spirit of the Third Amendment. Nobody, not even the government, gets to barge in, sleep in our houses, or steal our shit!

Comcast, AT&T Are Paying Minority Groups To Support Killing Net Neutrality submitted by pedigo to technology

I obviously didn't mean "start" as if there are not already monopolies. But if you don't treat every website's traffic equally, you're not going to give startups or companies without special ISP agreements a fair shot at competing with the well-established companies; their websites' slowness will be unappealing to consumers - and so monopolies will form and be maintained.

Start? Do you know that most people only have the internet "option" of DSL tier garbage, high latency satellite, or one cable company servicing a particular area?


If there was actual choice between providers if an ISP tried to pull any fuckery you could literally just switch providers. Can you do that now? Not in most places. Fix the actual problem and the auxiliary problems caused disappear.

I'm surprised you touched on both of these and didn't realize the issue. Of course, yes, in the perfect capitalist society, there would be multiple ISP options, so enforcing net neutrality wouldn't be an issue - after all, you could just switch to a better ISP. But you said it yourself, that's not the case for most people, because laying the infrastructure to give people internet is pretty god damn expensive. So right now, to stop ISPs from being able to abuse most people, it is necessary to regulate and enforce net neutrality.
