AT&T vs Alyssa Milano
5:20 PM -- I've changed my mind.
I was in favor of openly mocking groups like SavetheInternet.com for their unfounded fear that, unless some new law is passed, big service providers will take steps to block all the Websites whose content they find objectionable.
At least that's the way I felt before I visited the SavetheInternet.com Website.
Once at the Website, I read that Alyssa Milano -- star of Poison Ivy II -- has blogged in favor of saving the Internet. Her post is right here. She is so pretty. Even in her words, you get a sense of her flawless beauty:
These corporations will take away our right to choose. They will impede innovation, stifle consumer choices, and block information and content that you may need or just want. It’s up to us to make our voices heard.
See? Big companies don't want us to see what we want to see. And that's why they need to be stopped.
So I'm throwing my support behind Ms. Milano. She's hot and she's been on TV way more than AT&T's corporate lawyer, Jim Cicconi. Besides, he works for a BIG CORPORATION, so he's trying to make the Internet something you have to pay to gain access to... or something like that. Whatever. He's just evil, OK? I mean, gosh.
So who are YOU going to side with? Jim Cicconi who works for a big company and probably uses foul language AND smokes? Or Alyssa Milano, who, I'm guessing, loves kitty cats and smells like strawberries?
I think the choice is clear.
