If you live in the USA, please help shut down once and for all Internet Service Providers' endless lobbying to create multi-tiered service that fast-tracks the richest content providers at the expense of all other internet traffic. If you're not in the USA but know others who are or contribute to multinational social media networks in any way, please spread this around for your sake as well. Literally nobody wants or benefits from the termination of Net Neutrality except the ISPs themselves (hell, not even most of them; just the CEOs and board members) and the handful of corporations (again, only the CEOs and boards of trustees) that could buy their way into the fastest tiers. Everybody else gets an internet with the most popular websites bundled into an itemized bill that is double or more what you're paying now and good luck getting to any of your favorite lesser-trafficked independent sites at all. At all. Anywhere. Even on public networks and mobile devices. ISPs want to create the corporate equivalent of a state media cartel that will effectively wipe out independent journalism, good and bad. Better the crap be allowed to continue existing than price neutral inquiry out of the market en masse. For those of you in any other country besides the USA, remember, a lot of the rest of the world's internet traffic goes through the US. You can bet our biggest media corporations (e.g. Fox) will try to throttle unsavory exposes and fast-track news with pro-US or pro-industry slants to your media outlets.

Here's what you can do:
1) Follow the directions here: i.imgur.com/VmYzkR7.png (US only as far as I know) -or-
2) Go to apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/displ… & click proceeding 14-28 "Protecting Net Neutrality" (at the top last I checked)
3) Enter the requested personal information (must be legit!) and submit in the comments "I'm requesting that the FCC reclassifies Internet Service Providers As Title II Common Carriers." UPDATE: YOU MUST COPY AND PASTE THIS EXACT SENTENCE SOMEWHERE IN YOUR COMMENTS OR IT WON'T WORK! I don't know if they run it through some kind of filter or what, but that sentence is essential. Everything else you write must be polite (no swearing, name-calling, or urban dictionary terminology!) and free of hotlinks, URLs, attachments, etc. This is a legitimate, serious government document you're filing and if you don't treat it as such, no matter how badly the scumbags in charge need to hear it, they're going to throw it out.
I didn't notice if international submissions were allowed, but if they are, by all means, copy-paste and submit!
