The Importance of Net Neutrality: Save the Internet

I'm one of those people that like to be able to get on the internet and look for and read about almost innumerable topics. Sometimes I share the links I find with different people. And sometimes they end up not getting the link. Sometimes there is an error message that comes back to me saying that other users of the system have complained about that particular link, so my recipient is not allowed to see it. Sometimes the link is about a shortcoming of that ISP, so I can only imagine who the users are that are blocking that email. Other times the message is completely removed from the recipient's mailbox - supposedly treated as SPAM although messages immediately before that one and following ones are received okay.

The situation is not getting better. Some companies with big bucks want to control what you can see; if you can see it all and how fast you can see it. Some major changes are going to take place without most of us knowing about it.

Now is your opportunity to get familiar these and with some of the other issues, check out this link: Save the Internet : Join the Fight for Internet Freedom. Net Neutrality issues are complicated...

Read the FAQ to get familiar with some of these issues.

WIth people like Senator Ted Stevens in charge of regulating things like net neutrality, we should probably all be concerned:
