      What instant translation tool spat out that line of crud?

      Singes capitulards mangeurs de fromage was probably what you were looking for, but you also forgot the bratwurst swallowing oompa band players, sangria drinking goat worriers and 24 others...

    Brain-dead understanding of the Internet

    Prohibiting ISPs from managing the flow of traffic is a quick way to shut the whole thing down. The Internet is not only reliant on massive oversubscription, but its TCP depends on cooperation to work, or the network will go into congestion collapse. It is not a common carrier service with fixed bit rates and shouldn't be treated as one.

    Of course teevee junkies don't care, and will happily destroy it if the think they'll get a few more shows to watch in the process.
