Who dat messin wit my web?

There's a certain amount of discussion in the air about "internet freedom."

What does that mean?

I've noticed over and over that there are mysterious forces at work that seem to limit internet traffic.

This is what I notice. You post a blog that seems very popular. You get a couple of dozen views in the first five minutes. Then internet traffic stops.

Theoretically, if something takes off it should keep taking off. But it doesn't. It's like somebody puts the brakes on.

I've even seen page counts disappear. You had 91 views in the first half hour but three hours later you're at 21. How does that happen?

Maybe "internet freedom" is already a relic of the past.
