A virtual counter-revolution
The internet has been a great unifier of people, companies and online networks. Powerful forces are threatening to balkanise it
This paragraph could be exhibit A in why I hate the way most journalism discusses net neutrality. It's not even just that there's no real explanation of what we're talking about. It's crappy ambiguity in that last sentence. Outlawing discrimination of any kind? Do we mean completely forbidding all kinds of service distinction? Or do we mean forbidding any one kind of service distinction? You can argue the expression leans toward the first if you parse it carefully... but it's easy not to, particularly if nobody's broken out the possible distinctions and you have no idea what they are.
