I’m sorry, but your facts are wrong here, and your reasoning is a little faulty, within the framework of ‘Faulty Reasoning’.
Let’s look at the facts first: MQA is a separate corporate entity, and is not a subsidiary and/or formally connected any longer with Meridian in any way, save that Bob Stewart is still heavily involved in both separate companies. Yes, MQA May have started off at Merdian, but it is now a separate entity.
As to ISP’s segmenting the internet, I’m not quite sure that a) there is a coherent point being made in your comment, and/or b) I don’t understand the point you’re trying to make. ISP’s have always segmented customer bases. It’s how they make their money!
After all, if that weren’t true, the old adage ‘You get what you pay for’ wouldn’t hold true. In my own personal situation, I accept that the more I pay to my ISP, the faster my connection. That makes sense to me. Does it not you you?
And no, ambivalence might not win out. But you have to argue on the facts, and the facts alone. And there is far too much prejudice and conjecture in this thread to make any coherent argument against MQA sound in the least convincing. At the moment.
