listserves are history?

A nationwide network of nonprofit organizations, including the Organic
Consumers Association, are mobilizing to stop Congress from passing a law
that would enable telecommunications giants to control the flow of traffic
on the internet. Companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast are pressuring
Congress to pass the "Telecom Reform Bill" that would allow them to restrict
or slow down your access to certain websites on the internet. As an example,
last year, Canada's version of AT&T -- Telus -- blocked their internet
customers from visiting a web site sympathetic to workers with whom Telus
was negotiating. This controversial bill would create a similar situation in
the U.S. whereby telephone and cable companies would have increased power to
control how well (or poorly) specific websites, including those operated by
nonprofit organizations, would function on your computer. The current
construction of the internet allows everyone to compete on a level playing
field. This is the reason that the internet is a force for economic
innovation, civic participation and free speech. If the public doesn't speak
up now, Congress will hand over control of the internet to these
telecommunications monopolies.
