As many of you may be aware, today is Net Neutrality Day, a day where many of the largest websites are taking action in the stand in support for Net Neutrality. And here at Fan-Interference we stand with our brethren around the net.
I’ve spoken on this issue before, but it bears repeating. This issue is immensely important and affects every man, woman, and child in this country more than most realize.
We typically try to stray away from political issues on this site, however this issue is more than just politics. It’s about protecting ourselves from big corporations that have nothing but their own interests at heart. If you don’t believe this will affect you, well you are wrong. If you don’t think they will throttle you, well they already are. And there will be nothing to stop them from taking things further. They will create internet speed lantes, jack up prices, shut down competing websites, and put up firewalls so massive that China will be jealous.
If you don’t grasp what could and will happen, well just try to enjoy any of your favorite sites today. Try to enjoy Amazon, Twitter, Netflix, Etsy, Reddit, Pornhub, BitTorrent, or well just about anything worth appreciating.
I’m sorry if this protest annoys you, or if it inconveniences you. That’s sort of the point. We will be back to our regularly scheduled blog soon enough, but today is about something a little more important.
