Rumor has it that you use the language of MONEY you might get people’s attention faster, so here goes nothing… Call your reps: battleforthenet.com Fax your reps:  text ‘resist’ to 50409, follow instructions Send stern email to the FCC: Ajit Pai : Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov Michael O'Rielly:  Mike.ORielly@fcc.gov Brendan Carr: Brendan.Carr@fcc.gov (You can use my template (3rd image) if you want, just swap out the name and state and whatever else applies to your business model. Make it personal!) pretty much yeah my personal bullet points: I run a small business online removing net neutrality will limit my customer base liming my customer base is a great way to kill my business you don’t want to kill small businesses do you also maybe worth mentioning: Portugal already did this. We / America can do better. (Patriotism etc.) : Nightmargin @NightMargin Follow If you're gonna contact your reps about #NetNeutrality,,-, and you do any sort of business online (etsy store, commissions, etc), it might be a good idea to bring up your personal stakes in the call. A loss of revenue for small businesses is a very tangible consequence. 2:50 PM-22 Nov 2017 Nightmargin NightMargin Follow basically, give the impression that people who do BUSINESS are gonna be PISSED To: Brendan.Carr@fcc.gov Hello Mr. Carr I am Casey, an American citizen and small business owner in Arkansas who primarily conducts business online The Title Il net neutrality rules currently in place protects my business and my clients by allowing everyone the same access to the same information, including public listings for my products and services, and my advertisements on social media The FCC chairman's proposed plans to destroy net neutrality has the potential to throttle my customer base and make my business as well as the millions of similar businesses in the country, no longer sustainable Removing net neutrality regulations would only provide short-term benefits to large cable companies by allowing them to abuse their power. A tiered internet system--one that charges my customer base extra fees to go on certain social media websites--would kill franchises of all sizes in today's world, where business operations of all sizes rely on social media marketing to advertise. This would ruin a lot of livelihoods, and would no doubt upset a lot of hardworking American citizens! I hope you can take this into consideration, and abandon the FCC's plans to overthrow net neutrality. Please protect the free market that the current internet provides Thank you anosci: nightmargin: Here’s another exciting round of “I hope the internet doesn’t blow up”!

What's unprofessional is turning down an aspiring employee due to superficial reasons and not their skill level or experience. one of the most accurate posts I've ever read.
