    Be afraid. Be very afraid. --Kevin Werbach.

    Are you ready to see the Net privatized from the bottom to the top? Are you ready to see the Net's free and open marketplace sucked into a pit of pipes built and fitted by the phone and cable companies and run according to rules lobbied by the carrier and content industries?

    Do you believe a free and open market should be "Your choice of walled garden" or "Your choice of silo"? That's what the big carrier and content companies believe. That's why they're getting ready to fence off the frontiers.

    If folks like DBSTALK.com have tp pay in order to get better exposure on the net will forums like DBSTALK.com disappear if the new Telcom act passes congress??

    It could be worse, imagine the United Nations running the internet into the ground, like they have done with everything else they have ever touched with their Reverse Midas Touch hands save for the World Health Organization.
