FCC Ready to Kill Internet

According to Reuters, FCC commissioners voted 5-0 today to proceed with crafting a "net neutrality" rule, sending the current language (which would strip telecom companies of the right to control how they use their own property) to the printing office for public comment. Comments will be accepted until January 14th.

The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is available online here [PDF].

You can upload your comments using ECFS here, using proceeding number 09-191. You can read others' comments on ECFS here.

I'm writing comments to submit right now. I'll post my comments here when I finish. I encourage everyone who loves the Internet and doesn't want to see it become the Postal Service of the 21st Century to do the same.
