    The Issue of Net Neutrality

    Vermont Agrees to Suspend Net Neutrality Law for Now https://www.meritalkslg.com/articles/vermont-agrees-to-suspend-net-neutrality-law-for-now/
  2. I am posting this as I feel it is an important issue. You may not have heard of it or simply not really know what it is about. Briefly, the Net Neutrality rules state that High-speed Internet is a utility that all Americans have equal right too. My Internet has to be the same speed as yours. If this is removed, it will mean, for example, that my ISP could charge services for speed. You may watch Netflix at high-speed because they paid for it and Hulu did not so it keeps buffering and snagging etc. Another form of this is poor people get slow speed internet (remember that from the 80's?) while rich people can afford high-speed Internet. The claim is that it will make new jobs, but how often is that the fact? The truth is the ISP and others stand to make lots of money serving the richer and the poorer will get a poorer internet experience. This is coming to a vote soon. Trump wants it gone and it is an Obama legacy. Whether it is to wipe away another Obama legacy, or to increase the wealth of his big business buddies or if Trump really believes it will make new jobs, I do not believe it to be a win for the people and most people do not seem to believe so either. The Internet is now a human right and all should have equal access to it in my opinion. I cannot support ending Net Neutrality anymore than I could support censorship like the Great Firewall of China. If you are an American, read these and do your own investigation and then if you agree, sign a petition or call/write your congressional and house representatives and let them know you do not agree. The vote is before the Holidays. Burger King explains Net Neutrality The New Net Neutrality Rules (From 2016) What Net Neutrality Rules Say I'm on the FCC. Please stop us from killing net neutrality A Lump of Coal in the Internet’s Stocking: FCC Poised to Gut Net Neutrality Rules Most Americans Support the Net Neutrality Rules that Trump’s FCC Wants to Kill Investigate it yourself and make an informed decision as to if you think it will benefit the people. Just please do it soon.

I will be posting notifications here as a reminder when there are important ones released.

    Although users can hide their phone number on their profile so nobody can see it, it’s still possible to “look up” user profiles in other ways, such as “when someone uploads your contact info to Facebook from their mobile phone,” according to a Facebook help article. It’s a more restricted way than allowing users to search for user profiles using a person’s phone number, which Facebook restricted last year after admitting “most” users had their information scraped.Facebook won’t let you opt out of its phone number ‘look up’ setting https://techcrunch.com/2019/03/03/facebook-phone-number-look-up/
