The FCC managed to pass their bill eradicating net neutrality, but it's not over until it's over. All we need is ONE. MORE. VOTE. Congress can cancel the net neutrality kill, but we need one more senator or representative. Battle for the net's a really good site for you to figure out how to help, but this is STILL GOING ON. If we don't get another vote, you'll start seeing the effects April 23.

 

'But I can't do anything!'

 

Wrong. Can you edit a wikia page? Great! There's a code you can input that shows an alert banner once per day. Can you make a social media account? Great! Contact your senators. As I said, battle for the net makes this INCREDIBLY easy.

Unless someone does something until then, it's dead for sure by then. And since people here care about it, Ghost is just spreading the message.

Nobody's freaking out.

That's incorrect grammar. If you want our rights taken away that's fine, Opal, just please don't get in the way of people who are actually trying to help the situation.

The puzzle's tough, I'll admit, but in time we'll find where everything fits.

[Mods, please let this through.]

 

@Opal: Actually, let me correct you on that -- if something in law allows you to do something, then it is a right. Net neutrality allows us to freely roam the open Internet. Therefore, the open net is a right as much as it is a privilege -- and both privileges and rights can be taken away from us.

Open and free internet is a right. Taking it away would be limiting freedom of speech, allowing service providers to target groups of people.

 

And I'm sorry, but I believe you don't understand the meaning of 'taken away'. We have it. If someone makes us not have it on purpose, that is defined as being taken away.


And yeah, life was fine before the internet, but times change, and now it won't be.

We're lucky to have internet, that's right. 

 

But let's use a metaphor here. An admittedly exaggerated one, but a metaphor nonetheless.

You live in an awful house. It's damp, ugly, peeling, and just coming apart. Then you get a new house, awarded by a government program. It's lovely, far better by far than your old one. This new house is lucky, and a privilege. Then someone tries to take it away, and says 'get over it'.

 

You can't just take things that are bad lying down, and if my post came through I'd be able to explain that.

A house is necessary for human survival, or at least a place to live. The internet is not. And the internet was fine 5 years ago.

Please calm down. And while it was fine five years ago, you might be shocked to find out that things change- nowadays, taking away neutrality would silence many minorities. While it isn't necessary to live, if minorities are silenced they will have no say over the laws being made relating to them. Many minority families would not be able to afford the added prices for the internet, cutting them off and effectively ensuring their maltreatment. Though I suppose you wouldn't care much about the oppression of LGBTQ+ people, people of color and other minorities would be severely affected as well.

I am, in fact, aware of minority issues and causes, considering I am a part of number of them. But no one is getting cut off. Do you really think any company could get away with any of that? Plus I’m aro/Ace but that’s beside the point.

I thought you were homophobic?

And yes, I think companies could get away with that, because that is exactly what abolishing net neutrality would do.

1) No, I’m not homophobic. Phobia means fear. I’m not afraid of gay people. I just don’t agree with them. Also, being aro/Ace is very not gay, so I don’t know where you were going with that...

 

2) That’s really not how things work. I’m really surprised you don’t understand that.

At this point, I'd normally post a long rant - I really do care about the topics addressed on this thread - but every time I do that, I end up looking and feeling like an idiot. I'm just going to say that I fully support net neutrality, and I don't think it's okay to disagree with people being gay.

First of all, contrary to popular belief, some people who work for big companies have hearts, and how would they make any money by doing something so controversial? Not to mention how that’s kinda illiegal to do and could be considered a breach of Constitutional rights.

Yes! Exactly! You finally understand how this would take away rights! Good job. 
And they would make money because these are minorities. There are less of them, more people that would pay that raised amount. They would lose a few, but the majority, the ones they keep, would pay more, earning more money.
