This is the current signature count for the petition to restore Net Neutrality. As you can see it has a very long way to go.
Come on people I know there are at least 64,000 of you on tumblr who haven’t signed this yet. Click here to do so
If you have already signed be sure to share the link so that the word will spread.
hey real talk for a second
the deadline for this petition is in THREE WEEKS
and it’s not even halfway to meeting the goal.
If it doesn’t meet the goal, IT’S OVER. THE PETITION IS REMOVED. THE END.
I know it might be a little annoying to take a whole two minutes out of your life to make an account and sign this, but that little annoyance pales in comparison to the fact that right now, MASSIVE CORPORATIONS NOW HAVE THE POWER TO CONTROL HOW THE INTERNET IS RUN
Please, DON’T sit back and think, “Oh, everyone else will sign it. I’ll just reblog.” No. There are literally THOUSANDS of people thinking the exact same thing. There’s a reason this post has almost 20,000 notes more than the number of signatures: It’s because people are liking and reblogging without signing it.
Don’t fall victim to the bystander effect. DO take this very, very seriously. The only requirement for signing is that you are 13 years or older. You don’t have to be a U.S. citizen to sign. So please, take the two minutes. Sign the petition. It’s the only hope we have to fix this.
For those of you who don’t know what “Net Neutrality” means, it’s the concept that you can access any site on the internet at the same speed. (Basically) Ending that would privatize the internet, meaning internet providers can pick and choose websites they will grant you better access to.
Say Comcast, your internet provider, prefers Hulu. Suddenly your Netflix streaming slows to a crawl and it’s not worth to watch anything on it anymore because it takes longer to buffer than to watch the damn show/movie.
This is REALLY generic and basic terms that I’m describing it, from my understanding, which I could be completely incorrect, but it really is important.
As of this repost, it needs just under 30,000 signatures by Valentines Day.
We can get this done.
Boost like you’ve never boosted before, people.
your url makes this 10x creepier
I’ll be waiting, 2 hours timer is setlook at the notes.
Okay, we’ll be waiting.
What the actual fuck you guys
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKING FUCK
THIS SHIT IS SCARY I DIDNT ACTUALLY THINK IT WOULD HAPPEN.
The Day of the Doctor is over, but just like after any time you’re given a gift, it’s time to fill out the thank you cards.
