My second attempt to post this failed too. HMMM - I smell a conspiracy.
I put together a post this morning and lost in in limbo....
So this is a quicky with outside links.
Basically, if the new Net Rules (the new Payola - Pay to Play) go into effect content providers such as ATS will have to pay to ensure their
subscribers/member can have reliable and speedly access.
So we will have a few options here should this occur: 1) ATS can become a paid member site; 2) ATS can sell even more advertising and tracking or 3)
the service (provided not by ATS but by ISPs and Backbones) will degrade. So it's a lose - lose situation here and, I suspect, for many of the
places you like to visit on the internet.
You can find a link at the end of this story to complain to the FCC (take the minute it takes to DO IT - it's a non-partisan issue):
(interesting as I tried to access the link I got "can't connect to server" hope it's actually busy and not being sabotaged.
If someone could post a right leaning link, it would be appreciated.
