I just got this email from eBay asking me to sign this petition...

It really looks to me like a deceptive attempt to get people to go against net neutrality

@MPurpureus No, it has very little to do with network neutrality. The internet tax thing is a completely different fight, and (if you go back far enough) dates to the days of mail order tax law.


"Keep the Internet as free from government taxation and regulation as possible."

It's just that little bit at the end that bugs me

@MPurpureus I understand, but at most that's boilerplate at this stage. They always say that, all the time. The heavy lifting is all about the taxes.
