umm, y’all remeber the net neutrality discussion we had a few years ago.

that’s what this is. you’re providing special treatment.

you can’t tax netflix and not brit box? if you did what’s the bar that gets britbox to pay taxes.

i get that they want revenue but it shouldn’t be at the expense of competition.

If they can't provide service using the revenue they have because of shitty business decisions then maybe the infrastructure should be Nationalized.

OMG Yes! I want the same government that runs the DMV and IRS to be totally, rather than 'somewhat', involved in more areas on which I depend!

You don’t have a drivers license or pay taxes? I bet you do both of those things. Sounds like they’re doing a good job to me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Neither agency mentioned "does a good job".

The DMV routinely fails to maintain its databases to the point it's either "leaked" to scammers or is unavailable to customers, or both. As for the IRS, do you enjoy being unable to file taxes online without having to pay a third party?

you’re comparing administrative duties with technical competence.

you see how slow the gov moves and you expect them to keep up with infrastructure demand?
