Net Neutrality

I just wanted to take a moment to make sure we're all aware of what's going on. The FCC is trying to get rid of net neutrality. If this happens, ISPs will have way too much control over what sites you can go to and how fast you can get there. It will likely become very difficult to play Maplestory, and that's not the half of it. Any site that competes with something your ISP provides may be unavailable to you. In many areas, ISPs are a monopoly so it will not be as simple as switching, especially if they all do it. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew about this. Thank you.

    Yeah, I've heard stories about it. Is there any way to protest it from happening?
    I know that over here, our cable bill is high enough and it's still slow and choppy. -_-

    We can call our senators and boycott comcast and verizon. If enough of us show we care maybe they'll listen for once.
