[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

Without Net Neutrality I won't write stories on Wattpad, Fanfiction.net, and play online games with awesome people. So I suggest everyone who lives in America to save the future of our internet by calling or writing congress to stop this so called FCC Burned Pie.

I hope you're right. To be honest, my biggest scare out of all this, is that they'll have the power to just block whatever sites they want to. What sites will they block? If it's Deviantart or Fimfiction get taken down, I dunno what I'll do, because that's the sites I go to the most (aside from YouTube of course) and got most of my work on. I'd hate to have all that go to waste :O

There's a very small chance of us winning. The FCC is ignoring us. Well, life isn't fair. We all know that much, I wish Sans and Asriel would get outta my computer. I need a skeleton and a god to start doing things to Pai. I need help saving the Internet.

Why do people want the government controlling the internet? It is a completely ignorant position. To understand why Net Neutrality is a bad thing (very, very, very bad thing), you must have some understanding of free market economics. Or perhaps a little understanding of the government. People are so terrified of this government, yet they want it controlling our internet... it makes no sense.

Please, let Net Neutrality be repealed.

Not the government but businesses like GOOGLE, Facebook, and Twitter. They already do dirty tricks to control the flow of information between users(mainly straight up censorship). Getting rid of NN would open the floodgates to worse censorship/manipulation of data.

Look at other industries other then tech. Government regulation protects the public interests, such as our Air Quality, Labor laws, Saftey, and keeps Gas prices in check. To name a few.

You have to have some rules placed on the free market, and the tech industry is no different.  The internet wanted transparency on those rules and we got Net Neutrality for it.

charfade Featured By Owner Edited 9 hours ago   Artist
yes, and I was making a comparison of why government regulation matters in other industries. 

The this whole topic is about if you feel the internet should be kept a public-style utility which has limited gov regulations. Or do you want to remove the current regulations and allow ISPs to go back to operating under a free market.

Sorry. My comment was directed at the original commenter due to how confused I got reading their statement. I wish DeviantART adds a feature to show who we're replying to in the comment section.
