The End of the Internet? By 2012?!

Heres something I found
If this is true.. This sucks
http://ipower.ning.com/netneutrality2
What the site says:

Update: Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP's all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These 'other' sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet.

Dylan Pattyn *, who is currently writing an article for Time Magazine on the issue, has official confirmation from sources within Bell Canada and is interviewing a marketing representative from TELUS who confirms the story and states that TELUS has already started blocking all websites that aren't in the subscription package for mobile Internet access. They could not confirm whether it would happen in 2012 because both stated it may actually happen sooner (as early as 2010). Interviews with these sources, more confirmation from other sources and more in-depth information on the issue is set to be published in Time Magazine soon.
What can we do?

The reason why we're releasing this information is because we believe we can stop it. More awareness means more mainstream media shedding light on it, more political interest and more pressure on the ISP's to keep the Internet an open free space. We started this social network as a platform for Internet activism where we can join forces, share ideas and organize any form of protest that may have an impact. If we want to make a difference in this, we have to join together and stand united as one powerful voice against it.

Join the movement.
Don't let the Internet evolve to this:

WE PAY FOR THE INTERNET
NOT PIECES AND CHUNKS
THE WHOLE THING!

srry bout the repeating images accident and i dont feel like fixing them

Its not true, trust me this smells fake

hopefully it is fake but we cant be certain

Wait. I already pay $40 a month for internet so thats just gunna raise it up $10 by 2012 thats not too bad at all, it just screws poor people over

yea but u wont be able to view ALL the sites you use to
they limit you to certain sites

As long as I can play my games with the $50 package its not the end of the world if that happens

NAH IM PRETY SURE THE GAMES WILL BE GONE
BUT STILL THATS STUPID

that would be so mean/evil if that happened i wouldnt have any victoms to hack.. and plus, i thought technology was supposed to get better in the future.. i mean, theres gonna be a few thousand people living on the moon by 2040, but no internet? thats completely weird

Oh damn bye bye youporn, xtube, pornotube, lubetube, spankwire, and more

But really this shit might be true(in America for sure) to the fullest i mean look at our money value america is getting poor by the months other countries making more money then we are cuz we paying them to walk on their grounds and screw there women. America might as well bend over and let another country get the KY, fuck us and take over cuz it seems they have more since then we do thats why Ron Paul stop running cuz the republicans didnt like that he was making sense and noone really wanted to support him and throw him some money to keep running. Fuck Obama and Mclain they was never about change all they want is to be in that house to feel like a ruler who has strings tied to everyone of us so they can move us like puppets and do what they want them to do by force.BTW the troops are never coming back not since iraq government said we are cowards for attacking a country more por then we are and you know they gonna try to prove whos the coward just like a nerd calls a bully a coward for picking on him, hes gonna want to show off and fight the nerd to prove hes the biggest baddest kid. Tellin u the only thing thats gonna change is the price of daily things u need in life to survive in this country just like this article they are gonna find ways to bring the american dollar value up and slowly watch the poor get even poor, oh and u can forget about a good job unless u gonna pay an assload of money for an education wich some go into dept after they graduate and have to flip burgers, cuz they prices for classes and books are going up to and that hope grant, financial aid bullshit is gonna end. The government wants that money and will not stop they gonna suck it out of any company or corporation they can get they hands on. Watch later in the future, The Country would still be free but.just to walk and say hi, thats it. Oh and your kids are gonna be implanted with a chip that track ppl where ever they go and they'll do it after women give birth. And for the adults who didn get them a chip is gonna be placed on your ID passports and other things u use to identify yourself.
Its all here on this vid

This wont fucking work. All it will take is one small ISP to not do this and they're gonna make over nine thousand bajizzillion dollars. Then all the other ISP will loose millions of dollars and be like "ZOMG we shouldn't do this."

very well thought out reply zodiac
and the chip thing
im not trying to get into religion or anything but i heard that the chip thing maybe the MARK OF THE BEAST described in revelations of the bible

this is retarded, its supply and demand, people arnt gunna want this, so they wont go to those isps. therefore it wont exsist.

I offcially brand this as GHEY
