Stevens' "Compromise" On Net Neutrality

If I'm reading the article right ... and mind you I'm not operating at full cycles right now ... the this "compromise" offers no ban on telecoms playing traffic cop to the content you're trying to access on the Internet ... but rather "a complaint process through the FCC if consumers believe their access rights were violated and the agency would be authorized to adjudicate complaints with penalties" to control abuse.

In other words, this would be the kind of compromise which is best compared to gutting a fish with a very large knife.

And we're the fish.
