This is truly important for all of us who use the Internets (they have 'em for computers now), so I figured I'd copy and paste the e-mail I got from Demand Progress. (A primer on Net Neutrality here).

Quote:
The FCC just passed the strongest Net Neutrality protections we’ve ever seen by reclassifying Internet access under Title II.

This is huge--but the fight is not over. The FCC passed Net Neutrality, but now we have to defend it from Comcast’s allies in Congress, who have already written legislation to overturn the new rule.

Will you chip in $5 to help stop Congress from overturning the FCC’s new Net Neutrality rules?

Members of Congress who have gotten huge amounts of money from Comcast are pushing legislation to overturn Net Neutrality.
And now Fox News is piling on, calling Net Neutrality “ObamaNet” and making groundless accusations challenging how the rule was developed.
It took years of organizing and millions of phone calls, petition signatures, rallies, and protests. But we did it. Now we need to defend it. Will you chip in $5 to stop Congress from overturning Net Neutrality?

Yes, I'll chip in $5.

Thanks.

FUCK YEAH. i mentioned this in the "relevant" thread. thanks for posting that email.

of course the ISPs will fight it in court too, so we'll see.

but this regulates them like a public utility-- a good thing.

cable internet yes.

comcast is one of the big players here bitching against that.

isn't it?

especially because they lose viewers to netflix traffic (and now amazon)

===

PS (for soupnazi) - as i understand/ just read congress is NOT going to push for legislation as they lack support-- so the battle is now IN THE COURTS.

prolly will make it to the supremos.

I SAID THIS ABOVE BUT I'LL RESTATE IT HERE THE EMAIL YOU GOT LOOKS SCAMMY AS FUCK

It's not a scam or anything you should worry about, fortunately; I just should have linked you directly to www.demandprogress.org instead of copypasting the e-mail. When I get an e-mail into my mail.com account, all links received are directed to some mail.com limbo first ("You're leaving mail.com, click here if you're not redirected in five seconds" or something) and then reach their actual destination. I know it sounds murky, but again, there's no shitware involved. Word!

Of course the Republicans are scaring everyone into saying Obama is controlling the internet, and hates democracy. So many people don't even know what net neutrality is, and what it means, so it's easy to distract and manipulate the average person.

oh ha ha ha-- okay!

better to be paranoid... yeah i checked the demand progress site. "looks legit" (including domain registration).

the issue that raised my eyebrows first was the claim that congress was going to write legislation to overrule the fcc-- they won't pass it and it's not going to happen -- here's the news from 2 days ago:

“We’re not going to get a signed bill that doesn’t have Democrats’ support,” said Senator John Thune, Republican of South Dakota and chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee. “This is an issue that needs to have bipartisan support.”


etc:

from what i've read it was john oliver who made it easy to understand and rallied the counteroffensive
