I don't know if many of you have heard of it, but Congress (in the U.S.A.) is pushing a law to hand over the Internet to companies like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, etc.

"Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most. If the public doesn't speak up now, our elected officials will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign."

If the way the Internet works is important to you, I highly suggest you sign the petition and do whatever else you possibly can.  Thanks for your time.


I actually have a bunch of opinions on this topic, but we don't allow discussion of political issues in our forums.  Sorry.
