Save the internet support net neutrality

Migrated topic.

This has nothing to do with humor I really didn't know where to put this post but this is a big deal to anyone who is living in the United States and I am doing all I can on my part and you can as well here's why you should care.

Here’s why whatever you do to save net neutrality and the open Internet matters. Without strong protections, Cable and phone companies like Comcast would be able to:

Slow video streaming sites, causing your videos start and stop unexpectedly.

Add you new fees to your Internet bill. Imagine paying extra for YouTube!

Censor videos or content they don’t agree with, like political blogs.

Throttle any new sites or apps they don’t own or invest in.

Make your connection painfully slow, and charge you more to make it work again.

Force streaming sites like Spotify into a slow lane, causing them to buffer constantly.

Slow online gaming. Call of Duty would lag and glitch without paying more to your ISP.

Charge big sites special “prioritization fees” and slow down everyone else.

Take you out of the driver’s seat, and control what you see and hear online.

Make the Internet look a lot more like cable TV.

And, worst of all, become the first gatekeepers of the Internet in US history.

Net neutrality says we get the *entire* web without interference – no gatekeepers, no tollbooths, no slowlanes.

This is why it is considered the First Amendment of the Internet. It protects our free speech in the digital age.

It’s so important we speak up tomorrow. We must show Congress and the FCC that when it comes to the Internet, we stand united. And if we’re loud enough, they’ll have to listen.

But this could all change if we don’t do our part to get the word out now.

Please take a second to change your social media avatar.

Or, if you have a site, app, or blog, follow these instructions to ensure the FCC and Congress hears our call to save the web.
Net neutrality is not a partisan issue. Regardless of your political views are or who you voted for, everyone who knows what net neutrality is supports it. And poll after poll confirms this across party lines.[1]

Without net neutrality, the government will give cable and phone companies free rein to shake down Internet users and websites for more money. And the ripple effects will be felt for years.

An entire generation of innovators have built their careers on the open web. With net neutrality in place, you just need a good idea and a decent connection to reach millions.

There’s too much at stake here. Please, do what you can to get the word out while there’s still time. Change your avatar, and follow these instructions to message your community ASAP.

We have just under 24 hours to go to. We need to show Congress and the FCC that people from all across the political spectrum love the Internet and don’t want politicians to screw it up by getting rid of net neutrality.

We’re counting on you,
