Losing internet access is severe.
I grew up without it just like most other people so losing it is nothing severe. Having just come back from 4 days away that were virtually internet free, I didn't really miss it that much while I was busing having a real life.
It's a privilege, just like driving, and if you abuse it you should lose it.
What I don't understand is why people would argue losing it is so extreme when avoiding the things that would cause someone to lose access are quite simple. If you do nothing wrong, nothing bad will happen, that's the general rule. It's how the majority of the population maintains their internet access and also avoids jail and prison.
Therefore, anyone arguing the counterpoint is also arguing that there's nothing wrong with doing bad things, that's it's OK to do bad things, that punishment is the problem and not the bad acts.
Two wrongs don't make a right but three lefts do.
