Net Neutrality Campaign To Show What the Web Would Be Like With a "Slow Lane"
Or so I thought. It has something to do with my router setup. Whatever.
But my point is it sucks!
Its not like its always slow. Instead I'll be surfing the net, and without warning a link will throw up my cable company's Could Not Find URL error page. If I look at the ping, there are these crazy large time lags. Rather than it taking a long time for the page to load, its as if the internet became SMALLER. The I have to WORK slower. And then, just everything is back to normal.

This way you maximize you reachability for important messages and minimize your vunerability for span, phishing, spoofing, etc.
