    BB,

    You always tell it as it is, but i'm shocked that with net neutrality being kicked to the curb that your worried about a possible cookie canon.

    big picture as i see it is that with this being blocked any network that buys a backbone can now freely block any cookie they like...any traffic...lase faire

    But the phone and cable monopolies (add the name Google here), who control almost all Internet access, want the power to choose who gets access to high-speed lanes and whose content gets seen first and fastest.
    Google does this now - it's the pot calling the kettle black.

    Instead of letting all websites be equal - Google decides which sites they think are duplicate or thin affiliate sites instead of letting the customers to the sites decide who they want to shop with.

    believe it or not Google was fighting FOR Net neutrality

    So worst case scenario here:

    Google lites up all of their dark fiber, has the CPA network in place, provides a free connection to the Internet and blocks the content of all other networks.

    The worst part is the DOJ just said...sure go for it

    Nice

    This is something most affiliates should be worried about, especially those who are developing high bandwidth sites (think lots of product pictures, big datafeeds, video, etc...)

    Think about having to pay not only your host for your site, but everyone's ISP for fast service too?
