- 63 days ago - act.boldprogressives.org
You won't believe what happened yesterday. So many people submitted comments to the FCC about Net Neutrality -- we crashed their servers! The problem was so severe they extended the deadline for comments until Friday at midnight. Still time please do!

You should ALSO go directly to FCC and leave a comment there as well as signing the Petition above.
Direct link to the FCC is Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet
PLEASE DO - BOTH.

Because we enjoy hearing from you anyways Dimitris. I recall C2 before they gave butterfly points. We were still actively engaged in conversation, ideas, and input. However, on my end of things I still see where I'm getting 20 butterflies, is yours not adding up?
 

Ashley heffner (457)
Thursday July 17, 2014, 10:13 am
It gives you 20 credits each for the first ten you do on articles a day.

But every time you note and/or comment on someone's article, it moves them up the list. If they get a lot of notes and comments, they get promoted to the front page. So it helps to really spread the word.

Ah, that might be what he was saying, he had used up his 10 times today.....got it. I know some people are having various issues on C2 with butterflies not adding up, so thought perhaps he was too.

Oh so done!!

A little off topic but somewhat related --- http://www.cbsnews.com/news/time-warner-shares-surge-after-rebuffing-murdoch-bid/
"Shares of Time Warner (TWX) surged nearly 18 percent Wednesday after the media and entertainment conglomerate rejected an unsolicited $80 billion takeover offer from Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox (FOXA)."

That would certainly put too much power in Rupert Murdoch's hands.

Oh I'm quite sure they will stick us with higher fees. They'll pass it to the main carriers who will then pass it on to the rest of us. In any case, we'll either settle for having less and slower or pay more for what we have today.

I'm a strong supporter of the Open Internet, and I will fight to keep the internet open. Thanks again for sharing your views with me.

Well this is certainly a different response than what I got when I wrote a long time ago to the FCC on this issue. I am so glad you shared this Arielle as it appears that he is listening. I think changing the internet would be most unpopular among the people.

Then why is this even up for debate? Just say NO.
 

Dandelion G. (387)

Good question Teresa. But I don't trust any of them any more. It might of been pushed by those Corporations that don't want an open internet so it has to be debated whether they want to or not. I suppose if the people remain in fact quiet it slides through. But over and over again we have to fight these same issues. I suspect they figure at one point we tire or go away or miss one of their underhanded attempts.

Yes, it was already mentioned in the earlier part of the thread. That is what happens when someone is at 61, a bit tired and doing things late at night because I also take care of my 7 year old grandchild 24/7. I also had been away for my Mothers Memorial Service. Forgive...I do my best am not perfect, I just thought it more important to try to get signatures onto the petition to save the internet for us all.
