  • Netflix vs. the pirates [View news story]
    For a piracy connoisseur to give a comparative piracy site review here that would be geared to helping others get illegal downloads would be a violation of the Seeking Alpha rules of conduct. Those rules wisely ban the "promotion of dangerous and illegal activities."

  • U.S. weighs further sanctions against Russia [View news story]
    And here is more about China's stand on the Ukraine issue. It is pretty clear that they do support Russia's stance, while also favoring "friendly cooperation" with Ukraine (which apparently includes the aforementioned financial incentives).

  • FCC begins convening for historic net neutrality vote [View news story]
    I think a business should be regulated as a utility if it is transmitted on lines that pass through MY property (whether I want the lines there or not) and it sells an very important product in a monopoly or duopoly arrangement.

    It is time the ISPs got the message that charging "all the traffic will bear" is no longer an acceptable business plan.

  • Facing new broadband era after FCC vote, related stocks stable for now [View news story]
    Amen to that--and I am far from an Obama supporter on other issues.

  • FCC votes 3-2 for tough net neutrality regulation [View news story]
    The word is henchmen; a term I forever associate with the villains' assistants on the 1960s TV show Batman.

    Nevertheless, I am one Republican who is for the consumer on this one; I am glad about the net neutrality ruling.

    Even wealthy Republicans do not like being overcharged for things. I think that this was a good decision.

  • FCC to vote on net neutrality [View news story]
    So you are in effect admitting that with net neutrality the big, but highly innovative streaming corporations like Netflix and Amazon might get some protection from the far bigger media giants that would like to suppress the competition presented by the streaming business model. Thanks for making my point.

    The ISPs need to be prevented from using their power to discriminate against some businesses like Netflix so as to give favoritism to those businesses that the ISPs profit from, such as their cable businesses.

  • Greece sends reforms before deadline [View news story]
    And please remember that Greece has now turned out their incompetent politicians who played a big role in their current mess--while the US still endures its bumbling leaders of recent years, both Democratic and Republican.

  • Gazprom threatens to cut off gas deliveries to Ukraine [View news story]
    It is never a good idea to be shooting at members of an ethnic group from which you also need to purchase energy.

    To Cornelius Chan: I appreciate your comments. Sadly, our US armchair warmongers and their emigre friends have been dominating the comments a lot in the two days since you posted this.

  • FCC Republicans ask Wheeler to delay net neutrality vote [View news story]
    The internet service of most Americans is either a monopoly or a duopoly (which, in practice, amounts to the same take-it-or-leave-it service plans).

    And our gas and electric service is also from a monopoly arrangement, but one that thankfully if regulated.

    Wow, the Ukrainian propaganda machine is in full swing today.

    But fighting World War III would ultimately be needed to fulfill the Ukrainian goals. Got a plan for winning that?

    To Alexander and to DirtyTackle: Your posts show why the US is quite resented in many countries for having double-standards. The Russians claim that their people are being killed or endangered by the Ukrainians, but those claims do not matter to you two.

    Well, okay, go fight then. I am sure the Ukrainian militias would have a place for you and yours. But I hope the US itself pulls back from the steps you seem to be leading it to.
