[Redesign] Don't Throttle Me by vexilografia

Today, DeviantArt has joined hundreds of other sites across the Web to fight for net neutrality, but we need your help!

Net neutrality protects open and equal access to the Internet. Without it, Internet Service Providers — like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon (among others) — could begin to charge extra fees, engage in economic censorship, and control what we see and do on the Web by throttling sites, apps, and other online services.

Why is this important? On December 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote to gut the protections for net neutrality.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Call or write your Congress person and demand that they stop the FCC from gutting net neutrality. Call and write to congress.
  • Share messages on all of your social accounts begging people to join the protest now. There is no time to waste.
  • (NOW OVER) Protest on December 7 at a Verizon store near you. verizonprotests.com

I'm officially confused on the status on net neutrality. Is it saved? Is it dead? Am I losing my head? Can anyone tell me what's going on?

Whatever the powers that be were REALLY doing while they dangled this net neutrality topic in front of us has probably been accomplished so they have stopped actively keeping it in the media. ;D

It's a long message but I'll put half of it here 

The ISPs aren’t going to immediately start blocking content or rolling out paid prioritization scams. They know Congress and the public are watching them. Rather, the death of net neutrality will be slow and insidious. You might not even notice it at first.


And at the end it said this 

So don’t fall for ISP lobbyists talking points. They’re ALREADY claiming that net neutrality was never needed since the sky hasn’t fallen, and the rules haven’t even gone into effect. But also don’t panic. The Internet is not going to die next week. Keep calm and keep fighting. The Senate will vote in a matter of weeks on a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to block the FCC’s repeal. Now is the moment to get engaged.

Yes! Also I looked on Twitter and this man is trying to stop the FCC, he's going to work together with other people to stop the repeal of Net Neutrality in court.

Let's hope they can actually pull this off...because if they don't, the repeal will only speed itself up...

My state has a Net Neutrality law so it's going to be protected, I still don't think this fight is over yet. 23 states are going to sue the FCC.

Will DeviantArt get blocked without Net Neutrality, or will it just become too expensive to be hosted?
