QuoteWhat about Comcast (sorry, I'm French)?
So basically in many areas of the US Comcast has made it the only internet service provider. They're also constantly voted the worst company in the US. You can't just change internet service providers either, there are none in some areas.
Other sites like YouTube exist, but they often lack the resources to deliver video. A lot of the channels I watch tried to get their viewer base to migrate to their website, but it usually can't handle the load.

If their actions offend you, don't support them by using their services. Just like I don't buy from companies or authors who take stances antipodal to my ethics, if you feel this is something so grave - put up or shut up. Do you simply lack the courage of your conviction?
Again. Comcast. Counterpoint. For many areas, it's your only choice for internet. Sure, make your statement against Comcast. Don't have internet then. It's not like there's people who use it to make a living or anything.
It's like the joke they make about ultimate security- for the highest level of internet security, don't have internet.
In this day and age, boycotts don't really do anything. (Other forms of) social action and outrage does. Actually having a choice as a buyer is undesirable for large corporations, so they consolidate into larger corporations to form monopolies or, if they can't, they form cartels.
Posted 22 Apr 2015I don't know, "Dammit" is a pretty good title.
The problem is that Youtube has dominated the internet in terms of anyone being able to post a video, so it's hard to avoid Google and not be in the dark at the same time.
Look at it this way. Comcast: it's your only choice.
