This should have more signatures honestly. I don't think a lot of people understand what this is and how it protects consumers from being f***ed over by ISPs

To be fair there are a lot of outlets that people can and have voiced their opinion. I've emailed letters to local congressmen, for example.

But yeah, sign every f***ing official thing you can. Write letters. Make phone calls if you aren't socially awkward around phones. Burn down your sen---I mean protest peacefully but get heard.

Meaningless signature is meaningless

The only effective action that can take place is at the ballot box in November

Then how fortunate for them that they planned all of this after elections had already taken place.

That way nobody could threaten to not vote for them and we're stuck with them till their term ends.

MOST internet petitions are useless, but since this is an official white house petition I'd say it's slightly less useless... In the Obama days he would have taken it seriously. Trump will probably make one sad tweet about it and that's it.

I'm not from the USA. Should I sign anyway?

I'm not gonna lie: I have very little knowledge about this, as I'm not really following International news nowdays. I don't even know how this will affect Internet in my country, to be honest.

Apparently you only have to give your name and email address to sign a petition so I guess you could get away with it, as long as they don't follow up and look for your actual location.

Duh, if they required actual information, then how could they use bots to generate millions of votes under bogus names in favor of Net Neutrality?

Post this on the Xbox and Playstation forums as well.

Also, i'd swing over to Current Events (CE) and post this there as well.

The funny part... This happened 4 days ago, when it was repealed.

This country cannot win as a people. When the handful of people that are in control of it, refuse to be the representatives that we hired.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

I wouldn't underestimate the power of organized violence. Enough "concerned citizens" willing to basically if not actually throw their lives away could conceivably destroy most to all of the political influence held by Time Warner, Comcast.

Mind you that I'm neither suggesting nor condoning that people take such actions. My point is that violence can, and does, represent effective action. Hell, it probably has the same chance of effecting the results you want as voting and petitions do in situations where the major names involved care more about dollars than sense.
Logic is the antithesis of faith, else why is it that faith defies logic while logic denies faith?
