    I hope they get touched by one of the many mentally unstable people on the internet.

    If a provider is pro trump etc can they just filter the content you see to support that?

    So now the repeal goes to court. Congress can still overrule the vote.

    Don't hold your breath, and Donald Trump appointed the former Verizon (an ISP) lawyer as Chairman of the FCC. They played the long game. They had this planned for a long time.

    Fight ain't over yet, we'll see what Congress does. Around 80% of Americans supported net neutrality, Republicans and Democrats.

    So basically with this repeal internet providers will now be allowed to BLOCK or SLOW DOWN service for specific apps or websites, and CHARGE users MORE MONEY for using streaming services like Netflix,Youtube,HULU etc

    The people who will be hit hardest by this,of course are poor and low income communities( i.g. black communities)

    Which is why President Obama, "" who never did ANYTHING for black people!"" was against repealing NN and fought to keep the internet as is..where regardless of your financial status you still have the same web speed and web browsing service as everyone else

    He still didn't do 🤬 for black people. Let's not lose sight of that. He was the precursor to all the racial 🤬 now.

    How is suing going to get them to reverse the decision? Doesn't make sense to me.

    Because it’s illegal and if the courts see it that way, it can be reversed

    We'll see. 🤬 is going to get real for a while.
