Internet & Networking Well, this is interesting. As some rumours already suggested, Google and Verizon have released a joint proposal for a legislative framework regarding net neutrality. This being Google and all, some of you may expect this to be all flower-farting unicorns darting across rainbows, but sadly, that's not the case. This proposal? Well, it's not good.

Frankly, anyone who is against net neutrality simply doesn't understand the internet, and should not be allowed to make decisions affecting it.

The major complaint that I see is: "OMG! The government is taking control of the internet!" What these people fail to realize is that the government is not going to "control" the internet, just force it to be fair. And the alternative is allowing roughly ten large corporations actually control the the internet.

Here is the question: do you want to create a system where only the big players can compete, or do you want a system that is fair for all?
