I don't think it needs to be said but if this goes exactly how ISP' want it to go this site will go bye bye, faster then a spooked horse down a hill.
To paraphrase what is going on, A new proposal has been established with in ISP's Like; Comcast, COX, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, and AT&T. These ISP's wish to create Two lanes of internet, the Fast one goes to those that can pay, and the "regular" (slow) goes to everyone else.
To quote the website, "Cable companies are famous for high prices and poor service. Several rank as the most hated companies in America. Now, they're attacking the Internet–their one competitor and our only refuge–with plans to charge websites arbitrary fees and slow (to a crawl) any sites that won't pay up. If they win, the Internet dies."
So go to this website let your voice be heard, and show these guys that the Internet is not something they can just control, as lets face it IF, this is allowed, then the internet will be more akin to a paid subscription on any cable provider, with sites going premium in order to stay alive, any small fry, and YES I am sure Newgrounds don't have the dough to fork out for this crap, will be choked out and quite possibly be blocked, by this new plan.
