    Considering those are the exact markets being discussed .......

    AND many of those other markets remain without competition because regulation creates too high a barrier of entry for competition to bloom.

    Then the website will either protect itself, or the network will protect itself, or it will be deemed not worth protecting. REGULATION never fixed anything better than the market. Regulation ALWAYS increases prices, stymies innovation, and decreases usefulness, ALWAYS!

    ...saying something ALWAYS is true will eventually be proven wrong. ;)

    You mean like the regulation against toxic food additives, or toxic materials in food grade plastics, or toxic materials in building materials that goes into your home? Don't need those right, as the market will self regulate...

    OK, if you want to go to the absurd to try to prove an incorrect point here in this context then we're done. I don't do straw arguments.

    And I'll stand by my point. Even those regulations increase cost and raise the barriers to entry. Follow what was actually said and stop trying to be right when you're wrong and an adult conversation can ensue.

    Good luck!

    I haven't seen a single person agree with what you've said so far. Maybe you should consider why that is? :D

    REALLY? Sorry but that's such an inane statement. Bless your heart.
