Quick! Gov't wants our input on how to run the Internet

The US government is asking for comments on how the internet should be run, and anyone is allowed to comment - but you'll need to be quick.

The NTIA - an arm of the US government's department of commerce - is holding a public meeting at the end of July over what should happen to the current Internet overseeing organisation ICANN when its contract is renewed in September. In the meantime, it has opened a public comment board where you are able to email comments for the US government and the rest of the world to see. The board is open now but comments need to be sent by this Friday, 7 July.
Here are the details. And here are some already published comments.

Now's the time to flood them with demands to keep the NET NEUTRAL!

Send your email to DNSTransition@ntia.doc.gov.

Those who wish to control the Internet have already adopted the ‘Net Neutrality’ moniker. Flooding them with demands to keep the ‘NET NEUTRAL’ will be interpreted as support.

As I have said before, GO AND SIT ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN. If you can't do that then your freedom don't mean very much to you. I know the Yanks hate the french but at least the french have the balls to have a massive nation wide strike if the government does something they don't like. You yanks just sit and talk about doing something but don't. Maybe your all to fat and lazy to go outside.

Our "government" doesn't give a bloody red rats' ass what "we the people" think. They will eliminate free and unfettered use of the Internet because they know the American people are too stupid and apathetic to fight back. They'll never go near the White House lawn. The American Sheep Collective doesn't have the balls to give up it's "work and consume" lifestyle long enough to actually make any substantial difference in the world. They'll let the Internet go without so much as a whimper after they're told that it's for "national security".

...Americans too lazy to protest...

"panem et circenses" == "McDonalds and Fox"

Our government isn't doing anything new. It worked for the Romans for a while, but we all know what happened to Rome.

The government doesn't care about the emails. The government is run by the corporate terrorists and unless we overthrown the corporate terrorists and hit the streets, the corporate terrorists will do whatever they like. Allowing people to send emails is just a disguise to make it actually seem like we have some control and to prevent riots.
