    Um

    Pros: All
    Cons: None (unless you're an asshat, if you are then put 'price' here)

    I have 6.4mb/480kb cable. Constant speeds, never goes down. Shared over three computers all with their own IP for $40 canadian a month.

    Buddy, you pay nothing for broadband. If you had to pay for it, you could only afford it once a year.

    I meant that $40 a month for broadband is justifiable. That doesn't even cover the cable company's expenses. So if you look at it, even though $40 might be expensive for many people, the price is logical. And therefore it I wouldn't consider it to be a con.

    I'd consider downtime, poor performance, etc... as a con. But if the performance was really ****ty then price would be a con, but if the performance is great then I consider the price of $40 a month a pro. Especially for my connection.

    Price can be a con. broadband in some areas is much more expensive.

    So you're saying $40 canadian for 6.4megabit down/ 4.8kb up is a bad price?

    I was referring to mine. Not the crappy AT&T $80 a month 2megabit down service. I was saying anyone who thought $40 a month was too expensive for my connection is a retard.

    Cow... no one should be called a retard without justification of being a retard... they may have a relative with Down Syndrome or something and could take such a simple-minded gesture as offensive...

    You're what? 17 years old? I'd think by now you should know to use a different word than "retard".

    I hate political correctness. You can call them mentally handicapped if you want but they're still retarded.

    Until they become productive members of society and stop leeching tax payers money for all of their lives they get no respect for me.

    Oh, but it's not their fault! There are ways to determine if the child has mental illnesses before they're born so the mother could have aborted.

    I'd take a loving child with mental deficiencies over a heartless logictician any day. It's people who don't take the time to look past $$$ and "wasted time" that are ruining this world. People who place logic above human compassion and decency. Where does the line begin or end? Does a child who will be poor at math because their brain isn't geared that way get aborted also? People like you who place value only on a human being if they have a certain level of intelligence make me sick. There is FAR more to a human than their intelligence, even though it is probably the most important factor.

    Probably the same way people on this board are looking at you right now.

    Same here. It's freakin' annoying but there is also something called respect also.

    I will enlighten your day with some old wisdom. (unfortunatly I don´t know how the exact words are in english, but i´ll try)
    "Av var och en efter förmåga, åt var och en efter behov." (swedish)
    In english it will be something like this (please any other swedish guys or someone who knows the origianl words, help me)

    From each and everyone depending on ability, to each and everyone depending on need

    Even a "retarded" person can be a productive member of society and should have the right to live. If we start aborting "retarded" people we can as well start geneticly enhance people and "produce" mindless workers and and an intelligent elite.
    We don´t want that kind of society.

    Survival of the fittest is lame. There is definetely somebody more FAR more fit than you or I on both a physical and intellectual level. Maybe we should just die so that these elite get more food. No thanks.

    That's the basis of communism. You're quoting Marx. That's basically saying that a retard doesn't have to do anything because he is inable to do so, but he gets everything because his need is greatest. No!
