Well, if you live in the United States like some of our users do (plus we're a .us), you'd hate that while giants like Google and Netflix just loads snappily, right? Or even, you'd have to pay extra to get to CodeWalrus and most of your other favourite sites? Well, the FCC, Comcast, and Verizon are trying to make it happen, and everyone else thinks it's completely stupid.

July 12 is another of these days where the entire Internet community are standing out for Net Neutrality, and we're happy to join their forces, however small we are, but eh, it's the thought that counts, we'd definitely hate if some weird giant ISP would prevent anyone to access our humble site. After all, everyone should have the right to access whatever information from our site equally from the other sites.

Join the fight! https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/

The Americans are clearly inferior to the french !
They kill innocent mexicans at the US-mexico border, they eat burgers all days, they destroy their own land and they don't like the afro-americans !
THEY MUST DIE

So it is no surprise that they would do something like dis

To be honest, I kinda got tired of following all those net neutrality announcements because since 2005, there has been a new petition or two and "fight for our freedom" news article plastered everywhere including my e-mail inbox every single year. We win everytime, but they always sneak a new bill/law/policy again under a new name.

I still think we should fight. But if we win this battle, expect having to fight again for a similar cause in 6 months. Those companies are really starting to get annoying.

Juju

True that. They're trying to pass a similar bill each year, it's the same song each time, it's getting real annoying, but we must still fight each time so they won't pass it while we aren't looking. Those pesky Republicans are pretty persistent, especially since Trump's tenure.

@xlibman Reminds me of this paraphrased quote.
"What do we do when the war is over? Get ready for the next one."

People will always take advantage of each other. It's perpetual.
It's a shame that every time we have to say, "It was inevitable".

I think they just expect the freedom movements to die down over time and that some casual supporters will eventually see the whole ordeal as something similar to the boy who cried wolf, and thus, be able to pass their bill more easily.

Well, there's whole organizations, companies whose sole job is to watch whatever the government is doing and launch campaigns whenever something they don't like is happening on the Senate's floor. Plus the fact a bunch of elected people don't really know what they're putting into law in many domains, you gotta watch them closely by those who know about it in case they do something stupid. Like that one time in Indiana where they tried to make pi equals exactly 3 into law. That was stupid.

Anyway, just like how parties keep starting smear campaigns against each other, I'm not sure it would die down. The guys who start those campaigns, it's actually their job, and it's so easy to share whatever they're saying and get behind them and throw money at them, plus people nowadays just believe whatever are thrown at them. So they will just keep doing it as long as they need to...

If that law passed, in Indiana, would wheels in the city limits automatically morph into hexagons?
