This is a very important announcement, and one everyone should be paying close attention to and spreading the word about.
This is about the FCC trying to get rid of net neutrality, for the fourth time this year.
So imagine having to pay to go to Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Amazon, Paypal, Netflix, Steam, Ebay, email, chatting/communication platforms like Skype and Discord. Music players like Pandora, LastFM, etc. Then there's everything else that aren't mainstream, like DeviantArt and yes, EpidemicJohto included. Imagine then, that you could only afford a few hours worth the 'everything else' that doesn't include major social media like FB.
But now a lot of that 'everything else' is censored and blocked because it had 'controversial beliefs,' like the deeply held belief we hold here that everyone should identify however they believe and be proud and safe from hatespeech. That freedom of speech still means something, in our writing and art and talk amongst each other, even if it has dark concepts, violence, LGBQT characters, or even just using the copyrighted property of Nintendos' Pokemon without being shut down.
Now imagine on top of that, that your internet is slowed down ON PURPOSE so your provider can charge you even more to 'unlock' it. And this isn't counting what you already pay for for your service; this is IN ADDITION.
This is what the internet will look like without net neutrality.
IF you don't think this will happen, just look at Portugals' situation.
So what can you do?
You can go to that provided link at the top, where they can easily connect you to the congressmans' phones one after the other without much effort.
Here is another:
So PLEASE take action. This is so serious, and they're really pushing this hard until everyone gets tired and stops caring.
Don't let that happen.
Keep Epidemic Johto free.
