What do you think? Will net neutrality affect the way Cheat Happens will operate in the near future?

"...to allow these internet service providers to speed up some websites, slow down others and charge additional fees for (or block) higher-quality bandwidth-intensive service or even certain content." IGN

I can't imagine anyone wanting to throttle our site. It's not like we're streaming 5GB movies to millions of users every day.

True, but it's mostly the end of the sentence I'm thinking about: "...certain content."

Net neutrality hinders the freedom and liberty of virtually all web usage; I am personally very glad to see it voted out!

"plugs", what does this mean? Net neutrality at the end of the day, would force ISPs to provide more bandwidth to less profitable demographics. Long story short; statists would strong arm (via regulation) ISPs to sacrifice their profitability, in order to supply greater bandwidth into those areas which are NOT profitable. Do statist understand the "free market" or a "market based economy"?! Short answer; no they do not.
