Quotes-start.png I am concerned about one potential threat. In today's deeply divided politics, ISPs will be moved by one outrage campaign or another to block "offensive" websites. The repeal of the 2015 regulation leaves that to their discretion.

I'm not sure the FCC would have intervened on behalf of fringe sites even under Wheeler. Quotes-end.png
