You're About to Have to Pay More to Access Heroscapers

We need to start calling "lobbying" what it is, bribery, so we can do away with it and don't keep ending up with ******** like this doing stupid **** like this. Do something about it.

Re: You're About to Have to Pay More to Access Heroscapers

This is about so much more than just money.

If Net Netruality is abolished, isps will have control over the content you can access. This is about freedom of information, freedom of speech. Without Net Netruality isps will be able to legally censor the internet.

Isps cannot be trusted to govern themselves. Net Neutrality must remain in place.

I urge all of you to contact your representatives and let your voice be heard.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Forgive me if I donít take the side of giant billion dollar ISPs who have shown they are ready, willing, and able to screw people over on a regular basis.

Re: You're About to Have to Pay More to Access Heroscapers

That "other side" argument was one of the dumbest things I've ever watched. He claims at 0:48-0:58 that companies charging more for faster access is due to Net Neutrality, as if companies won't charge for whatever they want (including faster access) if Net Neutrality disappears. He also claims, hilariously, that the Internet "was working fine" before Net Neutrality and that Net Neutrality is to blame for whatever's wrong with the Internet, when in fact Net Neutrality was "put in place" to protect the fact that the Internet was indeed "working fine".

Re: You're About to Have to Pay More to Access Heroscapers

John Oliver's explanation is what really got the concept of Net Neutrality through to me. I think that many companies know very well how hard it is for most people to grasp the concept, and they're relying on that to get rid of it.

I've been trying to educate my family and friends about Net Neutrality and just how important it is--I have yet to see someone disagree with it once they understand it--but hopefully everyone else will be doing the same. I'd hate to see them get away with this because no one seemingly cares until it's too late.

Re: You're About to Have to Pay More to Access Heroscapers

Well, I actually e-mailed my congress types about this. With an automated letter thing that Etsy gave out as I despise anyone in politics and I could in no way write a remotely civil letter to one of them myself. One of them actually sent me an automated letter back on how they'll be ignoring their constituents wishes because cable stocks have slightly fallen and somehow the big bad regulations are preventing high speed internet in rural areas. As some one who lives in a rural area, I'm not very happy about being used as a smokescreen for some asshat to line his pockets.

Sidenote, is it normal for senators and such to send out reply letters that say 'dear friend' and such? They all did that and it is super insulting. I'm not their friend, I'm their constituent. Like newsflash jackasses, I'm emailing you about an important issue that y'all are supposed to deal with, not inviting you to brunch.

Yeah, form letters are unfortunately pretty typical.

Here's a video explaining why that video was extremely misinformed and inaccurate.

If anyone wasn't aware, the FCC voted 3-2 to repeal Net Neutrality recently. The decision won't take effect for a while longer, but only Congress can change things now.
