If net neutrality sees the axe (see here), what is likely to happen to this forum (and other support forums like this one, which are sometimes the only resources many people have).

 

I'm terrified.

Can you explain why you think this?  I read the article at the link you gave but didn't understand. 

It might be a concern, but don't worry about something that might or might not happen.  There are other platforms, eg. Facebook, etc. where people can share, so I'm sure if it affects forums, there will be some kind of work-arounds or new ways to communicate.

I share your concern. 

 

Without net neutrality, internet service providers can hinder access to websites by reducing the bandwidth allotted to download those pages.  For example, if a Google search engine user clicked on a link for SA and it took 5 minutes to load versus a Big Pharma sponsored advocacy group's website load time being 5 seconds, despite the pages being of equal megabytes, SA will be negatively impacted.

2006-2009 Zyprexa and Wellbutrin (dc Wellbutrin cold turkey, dc Zyprexa cold turkey with disastrous results) 2009-2010 Transitioned from Zyprexa to Abilify 2010-2015 Reduced from 20 mg of Abilify to 8mg. Cold turkeyed once during this period but finally learned my lesson.  12/2015 -  8mg of Abilify.  04/15/ 2016 -  7mg of Abilify. 09/15/2016 - 6.3mg of Abilify.  11/2016 - 5.7 mg of Abilify.  11/30/2016 - 5.1mg of Abilify. 01/2017 - 4.6mg of Abilify,  02/2017 - 4.1 of Abilify, 03/2017 - 3.8 of Abilify, 04/2017 - 3.4 of Abilify, 05/2017 - 3.0mg of Abilify, 07/2017 2.7mg of Abilify, 8/2017 2.5mg to 2.3 of Abilify , 9/2017 2mg to 1.8mg of Abilify, 10/2017 400mg of Abilify Maintena, unknown amounts of paroxine (sp), geodon and unknown benzo (forced), 11/2017 Abilify 6.0mg , 12/2017 Abilify 5.5 , 1/2018 Abilify 5.0mg, 3/2018 Abilify 4.5mg, 4/2022 Haldol Deca 200mg (injectable)
