Alright, everyone, sit down, and listen carefully, coz I'm about to get deadly serious about a matter of grave concern.
You guys remember SOPA and PIPA, and all the outrage surrounding them that got them swept under the proverbial carpet?
Well, it seems the powers that be haven't learned their lesson.
In about a month's time, the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC) will vote on a bill that, if passed, will basically allow internet providers acorss the states to control what we see and do online.
And by control, I mean slow to almost an absolute standstill unless you pay exorbatant fees.
If you're not from America, don't think for a SECOND that it won't affect you.
For one thing, that's where a vast majority of internet servers are, and for another thing, IF this bill gets passed, it'll very likely set it's sights on other countries. It's highly likely England will be next in line if it goes through...then it'll be the rest of Europe...Russia and Australia...the rest of the world.
Websites will dissapear left and right. Only the sites of highly wealthy mega-corporations will remain, as they can afford the fee for normal speed internet.
It MUST be stopped in America NOW, or we might as well consider the Internet GONE.
Posts advertising this outrage have flooded Reddit...and I feel I must spread the word. And you must too. The more word spreads around the internet, the better, allowing more people to be aware of the issue and join their voice to the thousands upon thousands who protest this already.
We need that number to be in the millions if we can get it there.

For the love of god, spread the word!
