I don’t want the government tracking my Internet usage, just as I don’t want the government recording my phone calls.

This is what happens without net neutrality.

With Net Neutrality gone, the flow of information will be controlled on a level people just aren’t thinking about yet.

Imagine the lowest priced net service including only Breitbart, RT, Infowars, TrumpTV, Fox News, basic email & Facebook.

It’ll happen.

Let me explain net neutrality in the most horrific way:

if FCC dismantles it, and you get internet from Verizon, they may force you to use YAHOO as your search engine (because they own it), but PAY to use GOOGLE.

Would you like that? If not, you SUPPORT #NetNeutrality.

none of that seems desirable.

Correct! Who wants to use Yahoo?

Well it seems that The Dictators have alternate facts.

Yep. And Democrats need to call on him to resign, not just refer it to an ethics committee.

You know, I’ve seen comments that Democrats are handling these things better than Republicans. While there is a bit of truth to that—Democrats aren’t just outright denying allegations—it’s still a weak response that they’re giving.

I’m not sure of the point of this, considering that the damage has already been done.

Facebook is trying to alert some U.S. users that they fell victim to Russian propaganda during the 2016 presidential election.

In the coming weeks, the social giant plans to roll out a new tool so that users can check if they followed or “Liked” pages and accounts — on both Facebook and Instagram — that the Kremlin quietly set up over the past two years in order to sow social and political unrest, the company announced Wednesday.

Only a slice of the roughly 140 million users who may have seen Kremlin-backed content on Facebook and Instagram during the 2016 election can take advantage of Facebook’s new portal, which will soon become part of the site’s Help Center. That’s due in part to technical limitations, the company contends.

But the move nonetheless comes as the tech giant tries to assuage its critics in Congress while further working to “protect our platforms and the people who use them from bad actors who try to undermine our democracy,” Facebook said in a blog post Wednesday.

You’re welcome!

It’s disgusting when you just hear the words, but putting the actual picture to it (and especially that picture), it brings it to a whole new level.

Maybe we should send the picture to every person who doesn’t think that sexual harassment and assault is a big deal.

Fantastic idea.

My sarcasm detector is not sure what to do with this one.

Ranking the Star Wars films

I might be able to give you ROTS above ROTJ, but certainly not TFA.

TFA is certainly a better film on a technical level, what kills it for me is Starkiller Base and the story. Maybe it’ll grow on me with the release of TLJ. I go back and forth on ROTS vs ROTJ.

TV’s Frink said:

I understand people not liking TFA (especially if the rehash stuff bothers you) but I don’t see how anyone can claim any of the prequels are better-made movies.

If you enjoy them more, I guess I understand that…sort of.

I would certainly rank TFA higher if it were solely about how “well-made” the films are. That ranking in my view would go like this:

ESB
ANH
TFA
R1
ROTJ
ROTS
AOTC
TPM

My previous ranking was just pure personal preference.

Tpm worse made than the other two prequels? Curious

I’d say TPM is the best prequel. In its non-edited form, it’s at least mildly funny, and it doesn’t really have any connection to the rest of the movies, so it’s easy to ignore. It also didn’t look as CGI-to-hell as the other ones.
