(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone could start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
Thank you Tuimblr for getting in on this!!!! VERY IMPORTANT BUSINESS
We’re slowing down our website as part of the net neutrality day of action. You’ll be hearing about net neutrality a lot today, and with good reason - battleforthenet.com is leading an internet-wide campaign to put the spotlight on the issue.
Uncle Vernon was waiting beyond the barrier. Mrs Weasley was close by him. She hugged Harry very tightly when she saw him, and whispered in his ear, ‘I think Dumbledore will let you come to us later in the summer. Keep in touch, Harry.’ - Goblet of Fire, CH 37, “The Beginning”
Anonymous said: i wanted to show support against net neutrality and didnt read the part about having to be a video creator should i unsign the petition and how do i do so?????
Don’t worry - if you have a YouTube account, you’re a video creator! Whether you have hundreds of uploads, just one video from that time the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, or no videos at all, you help shape the community.
Just think of all the videos created around comments from viewers and all the places we talk about videos we’ve seen. Discussion is just as important to YouTube as videos are.
