Fight AOL's two-tiered Internet
A groundswell of organizations is gathering to oppose AOL's plan to create a fee-for-delivery e-mail system. While their justification is to relieve spam, the actual impact would be to provide a higher class of service to large mailers willing to pay, while freezing out non-profits and small groups.
This is a misguided attempt to monetize their customer base, and it is just repugnant. I've been an AOL member and supporter for a very long time -- my screen name is "McDaid," with no letters or numbers, which should tell you something -- and I've never considered canceling my service. Until now.
