Net Neutrality - Sign the Petition

Given that this website depends on bandwidth - and lots of it - this is important. If we were metered or forced to the slow lane, it would impact significantly with our ability to stay in touch with each other.

Re: Net Neutrality - Sign the Petition

I signed it and sent it in, though it is a bit optimistic to think my Congressclown can read it, will read it and will care about it. I think this one, like nearly everything else will go on partisan lines.

I'm not optimistic either - the responses I got the last time this came up were absolutely depressing in their lack of understanding of how the internet works. I'm doing this for my grandkids - I want to say, "At least, I tried."
