Net Neutrality

22 Nov 2017, 5:39 am
Alright, everyone, sit down, and listen carefully, coz I'm about to get deadly serious about a matter of grave concern.

You guys remember SOPA and PIPA, and all the outrage surrounding them that got them swept under the proverbial carpet?

Well, it seems the powers that be haven't learned their lesson.

In about a month's time, the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC) will vote on a bill that, if passed, will basically allow internet providers acorss the states to control what we see and do online.

And by control, I mean slow to almost an absolute standstill unless you pay exorbatant fees.

If you're not from America, don't think for a SECOND that it won't affect you.

For one thing, that's where a vast majority of internet servers are, and for another thing, IF this bill gets passed, it'll very likely set it's sights on other countries. It's highly likely England will be next in line if it goes through...then it'll be the rest of Europe...Russia and Australia...the rest of the world.

Websites will dissapear left and right. Only the sites of highly wealthy mega-corporations will remain, as they can afford the fee for normal speed internet.

It MUST be stopped in America NOW, or we might as well consider the Internet GONE.

Posts advertising this outrage have flooded Reddit...and I feel I must spread the word. And you must too. The more word spreads around the internet, the better, allowing more people to be aware of the issue and join their voice to the thousands upon thousands who protest this already.

We need that number to be in the millions if we can get it there.

More info here

For the love of god, spread the word!

This is extremely scary because it seems like they're determined to pass this dumbass bill despite the massive, massive outrage

Yeah, seems so. First SOPA, then PIPA, now this? Even if we win now they'll prolly have another incarnation of trying to limit the general public's use of the internet after a short while.

This is some serious shit guys. I'm not messing around. Check out this video John Oliver made back in May. He does a great job of explaining why it's happening in the first place and why we need to take care of this.

I get that there's a good thing that could come of this regarding terrorists and serial killers and kidnappers and whoknowsall, but ANY power given, will feed their hunger, and only temporarily.

Nice one. I like how he says it's a resource like Gas and Electricity. That's a great way to describe it. Thanks, Deadpool.

-kicks door in-

hEY ALSO IF YOU'RE LIKE ME AND WANNA DO SOMETHING BUT TALKING ON THE PHONE IS HORRIFYING I HAVE A SOLUTION FOR YOU

Cryaotic tweeted on twitter that you can text to Resistbot and it'll help you send your message to your congress of your state about net neutrality! Here's the tweet for anyone interested

I did this yesterday when I came home and I can guarantee you it only takes like 10 or so minutes tops! It also lets you know whether or not your fax was successfully sent in which is also nice!

What are SOPA and PIPA? I've never heard of them
22 Nov 2017, 9:17 am
I seriously doubt the bill would pass.
And if it did, there would be a butt
ton of people who will do everything
in their power to reverse it.

SOPA and PIPA were basically past attempts at getting rid of net neutrality that were thankfully stopped before they could have taken effect.

We all doubt it will but the issue is more the fact that they keep trying to do this

We kicked it down when SOPA and PIPA came around, yes but they're going to keep attempting this over and over again in hopes that people have forgotten about those past attempts and/or by some miracle it can pass through. Though this time they're a bunch of crafty ones trying to get this around during the holidays. Even if we think the bill won't pass, it's still a good idea to join in on opposing it because you never know what could end up happening.

Bump. This needs to stop.
The only important villagers I have are Stargleam, Silver, Butch, and Kingpin. The rest used to be Wanderers, and are kept only for their jobs. Please do not interact with them. (except Bubblegum, because Wickerbeasts)

I am definitely opposing it. But it is obvious that
any attempt to try and get this under the radar
of the people has failed epically.

Yikes! Yeah, we kinda need to be able to browse for free.

I, for one, can't afford to pay fees whenever I research whatever I happen to want to learn on any given day.
