Signal boost: the Republicans are once again trying to destroy Net Neutrality, with the new FCC Chair making the usual disingenuous BS arguments about it. And this time, they've made it ridiculously difficult to actually comment on it.

Fortunately, Jon Oliver and Last Week Tonight have jumped in to make life easier. If you go to GoFCCYourself.com, it cuts through most of the hoops -- just look for the "+ Express" link on the right-hand side, click on that, and you can enter your commentary.

This is important stuff: the big ISPs have shown themselves to be pretty untrustworthy, and willing to take undue advantage of their position. We need to stand up for Net Neutrality in force, immediately, if we're to have any hope of keeping it...

Commented. I hate public petitions for the abuse potential they have, but cmon. Grr.

I don't see how this is equivalent to a "public petition" except in the sense that the Constitution provides that citizens shall be able to petition their government for redress of grievances.

Also commented.

Thanks for the reminder to try again - on Monday, the site was down. I called the help desk person, who answered right away, but at the time he couldn't estimate when things would be working again.
