More than 99 percent of the 800,000 or so comments on Net neutrality the FCC released last month were in favor of an open Internet, according to the Sunlight Foundation's analysis of the comments. At least 60 percent of the comments, or more than 484,000, were form letters written by organized campaigns, although that is a lower percentage than is common for high-volume regulatory issues. At least 200 comments came from law firms, on their own behalf or for their clients.

Why is a large number of form letters a "negative" thing? Unless too many of those form letters came from the same email address(es), it's clear that a lot of people cared enough about the issue and wanted their point of view to be known by the FCC, to send in a copy of a form letter, even if they didn't want to take the time to write their own version of the same basic thoughts and opinions. I can't see ANYTHING negative about that ... and "more than 99%" being in favor of Net Neutrality carries its own pretty considerable weight - doesn't it??

I am sick of business ruining every aspect of American freedoms. An open and free internet is as important as a Free Press. Tiered service is not open and free, how will School students get their class schedules and papers from the schools?

Will some one with a political agenda be able to squeeze out other views? With business trying to monitize the internet, all content should have the same value, not being detiremind by the carrier.

The FCC is showing its true colors, owned by Big Business not the Citizens.
