Yes.  It’s a big issue in the US right now.  And time is of the essence which is why tumblr, reddit, and tons of other big websites are really pushing it today.  Basically a case was just overthrown which advocated net neutrality- opening the doors for internet providers (IE verizon, at&t, xfinity, etc) to charge you for your internet in tiers.  This means they could be like 

To use internet to go to news websites- $40/month

To use sites like tumblr/reddit- $50/month

To use sites like Netflix, Hulu Plus- $70/month

To use smaller, private websites- $80/month (This would be so expensive because bigger companies like Tumblr, Netflix, etc. would subsidize some of the cost to basically be able to buy more traffic.  This makes it very hard for people to just start up websites to help get business going, or to just casually start a fun website).

Obviously, no one wants this.  The little thing that says “Make it stop” at the top of your tumblr dash is a link that takes you to a place where you can enter your phone number and zip code.  Tumblr uses this to call you, brief you on what’s going on, then connect you to your State Senator’s office.  Don’t worry, after you enter in your info, tumblr navigates you to a post that tells you exactly what to say.  It’s not scary at all and I hate even calling the doctors office and stuff like that.  This is important because your State Senator can put pressure on the FCC (Federal Communications Commision) to impose a policy to ensure Net Neutrality (Net neutrality prevents internet providers from doing that mean thing up there). It’s also important because the Senators’ offices take calls 10x more seriously than emails. The whole process took me literally less than 2 minutes.  

I hope you (and everyone) decide to call and protect our internet freedom!

Quotes Series:

"Who what am I? My answer: 
I am the sum total of everything that went before me,
of all I have been seen done,
of everything done-to-me.
I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected
was affected by mine.
I am anything that happens after I’ve gone
which would not have happened if I had not come.
Nor am I particularly exceptional in this matter;
each "I," every one of the now-six-hundred-million-plus of us,
contains a similar multitude.

I repeat for the last time:
to understand me, you’ll have to swallow a world."
-Saleem Sinai, Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
