Hate to get all preachy and thumping the activism drum, but Mozilla is having an email campaign to maintain net neutrality, and I figured I'd drop a link if anyone wanted to join in on the mass spamming. If not, feel free to ignore. I just figured we all use the internet at some point or another, and probably would like to see it continue to work the way it works now.

How the heck Internet providers have the balls to do this is beyond me. Like they already have a shitty service and yet wish to screw over customers more.

All this talk about ACTA/SOPA/PIPA/Net Neutrality brings me back to a time when the Escapist was more passionate (and populated) about such issues...

More OT: I have no big opinion on the matter. It's a complex issue that I'd prefer to leave in the hands of more knowledgeable people.

Whatever, just wash your hands.

Seems like these fights always prolong the inevitable. I thought we took care of this years ago but its popping back up again? Sigh.
Ultimately what we need is a constitutional amendment for net neutrality. We are having the fight again now since trump is in office (still sounds like a bad joke) and his fcc guy is determined to kill it off.

Hey, big question from somebody who's totally ignorant on the subject, but what is the argument from the other side? Like, how are they justifying it if its so obviously wrong?

It won't change anything with or without net neutrality.
These examples prove that statement is false.

So a few minor things. Big deal.

Its very important to keep a free and open internet, it would hurt everyone otherwise. Even trolls have their favorite content creators. Everyone should help to keep it that way.
