Re: Please explain: why do we NEED this so-called "net neutrality" again?
It prevents ISPs from slicing and dicing your network traffic so that you have to pay extra for the stuff you want to access. It also prevents them from degrading things they don't like (such as sites that are critical of the FCC). Net neutrality also cements the role of the ISP as a common carrier -- they're supposed to provide the plumbing, not look at what its carrying.
Its a "Through the Looking Glass" mindset that can position absence of regulation as government intrusion but its actually quite the fashion these days.
