If You Do One Thing This Month...

Wyrmrest Accord
Please consider putting your opinion in about Net Neutrality.

What is this Net Neutrality thing all about? I'm providing a breakdown as so eloquently done on Imgur today. Fair warning, there's some crude language here, but it's kind of needed (in my opinion).

Where can you go to make your voice heard?

You can also look up information for your state's House Representative.

Please speak up, Wyrmrest...
...I didn't hear about this until now.

Hopefully this helps.
It is important to generate political wind when it comes to things that you don't support by calling your congressional representative. The more people making wind the better.

But it's also important to realize that if things don't work out the way you want, it's not your fault, it just happens to be that the majority party right now seems to lean more towards corporations than people. What you can do is pay attention and not re-elect the people who throw you under the bus when the time comes.

I use a leftist app called "5 calls" which politely provides to me a list of current issues, an explanation of them, a semi-script if you don't know what to say, phone numbers to call.
I just got decent Internet quality this year too, last thing I want (or anyone with good Internet wants) is to have their speed throttled with use. I already sent one of those e-mails out. This isn't the first time they've tried to kill NN either, but their really persistent to take over.
I've seen companies put more effort into their April Fools pranks for the year than keep !@#$ neutral.

If tiny banners and little text on the side of a website is all most of these big companies can manage as a *protest*, we're %^-*ed sideways.
I submitted a public statement through https://www.fcc.gov

You can access the link through discord right now, I think. They give a little blurb and then you can click a link that will take you to the FCC website and the specific case of net neutrality.

I'm considering calling my local congressman though I'm pretty certain Rhode Island already supports NN. Let me check.
It's distressing.
