It's going to be nail biting tomorrow that's for sure. Yep,if this passes hopefully the back lash will be so huge it cannot be ignored. Causing a "oh crap what did we do voting "yes'".  I've helped get the word out about ignoring this isn't an option...you need to call...

It's not that MILLIONS haven't already spoken out.... it's that the Powers That Be are NOT listening to our voices!!!  :(

The vote is today.  It makes me angry because this is clearly against what the public wants.   The telecom industry doesn't like to advertise that it used gov't funding to build it's networks and its just so wrong that a taxpayer resource we paid for is being stolen from us.

The real problem is that this is not going to go away until it's put into law or the Supreme Court rules against them.  The telecom industry is not going to give up, they have been relentless for over a decade.

I've just seen that they've repealed it 3:2 on party lines. How can 5 people make that kind of decision for millions of people! There's something about them ignoring 22million people protesting it by saying that so many were bots that it's not accurate! IDIOTS! I'm not in America but I find it very concerning for everyone there.

There are going to be legal challenges so lets just hope they succeed!

THIS VERY MUCH.

But alas... too bad... let's see what happens as they've made their decision 3:2 against NN ...  :(

*sigh* this is why we can't have nice things and that's putting it G rated.  If other countries take a page from the States it might not bode well. On the other hand if folks here kick it up a notch with protests ect... they may think twice.

I dont think its over yet. From what i have read on twitter they still have one more hurdle in their way so there is still hope.

Uh no. That's not how voting works morons.  :enraged: You don't just put out a vote and ignore the results because its not in your favor.

If you can't do it by the rules, then you have no business doing it all. The people clearly said NO. This is a democracy. Its not how we do things in THIS country.

Hopefully the courts and the people will overturn it based on that alone.

I read (wish I could remember where) that there is legislation being created that would make Net Neutrality law instead of policy. Of course, in order for that to happen, Dems have to take back the House and Senate in 2018. But once it's law, it'll be much, MUCH harder for the ISPs to get their way while ignoring millions of dissenting voices.

This is extremely heartbreaking and frustrating to say the least. I strongly urge everyone to not give up and show up to local protests and be supportive and continue to fight for Net Neutrality! Continue to contact your representatives and let your voices be heard!

It just feels pointless to contact my representatives. It's like talking to a brick wall. Case and point, a friend posted on FB earlier that she tried to do that in my state and got an automated message back saying that the representative didn't care and would vote to repeal it anyway.

Did it happen? I read in the news that net neutrality has been officially scrapped, but I don't see the internet freaking out yet. Anyway, net neutrality is apparently protected by Norwegian law, so I guess I won't be affected... directly :lookround:
When are we going to make international internet laws so stuff like this can't happen? This whole ordeal is so weird.
