Porn sites care about your online freedom

In 2017 and 2018 porn sites do care more about your online freedom than politicians..

This is your reminder that most adult sites like Pornhub and YouPorn are currently doing way more to defend your rights on the free internet use than the Federal Communications Commission.

The porn industry has been one of net neutrality’s committed defenders, going so far as to have a day of loading icons to protest potential rollback in June. Even earlier, in March, several adult tube sites switched to HTTPS encryption so as to hide your personal browsing habits from the ISPs. At the time, the FCC was voting to roll back restrictions preventing ISPs from selling your private browser history.

So that’s the state of the union as of the last gasp of 2017 rings out: adult sites care more about your interests than the FCC does.

ISPs, the ones who stand to benefit from the coming system, have been quick to defend themselves, and it’s AT&T’s defense that rings out most clearly to me at this moment:

Make no doubt, the circulation of this order will bring the ‘sky is falling’ crowd to the fore, and they will foretell a day when websites will be blocked, content censored and internet access controlled by ISP overlords.

We’ll take our place among the “sky is falling” crowd, because nothing about the coming rule changes look good to us. I don’t see how we stand to benefit from the paradigm shift we’re most likely going to get after the vote in December.

At least the adultindustry has our back.
