pm brink and ask if it can be stickied ,and create a thread with it as the topic and the link in first post .
i think if the request comes from a Canadian it will carry more weight and have more relevance.

I would agree to a sticky here in Chillout. To grab other Canadian's attention.

great stuff! I posted this on another website I frequent and hope they will jump on the bandwagon! this sh*t has got to stop! I mean 25GB is nothing nowadays with all the LEGAL downloads we do like legit music/games/movies and also gaming and hosting takes alot of bandwith too! its totally ridiculous not to mention unfair!

Just checked the count of people on the petition and it is rising quickly. We have to keep this going! The politicians will only listen if enough voters make a stand. Please keep spreading the word by as many means as possible.

I download stuff! This is why I have a second hard-drive, 1 TiB.


I have a package that I pay 54.95 per month for. It is 1,200 kBps down rate (that's 1.2-megs a second speed), and 100-kBps up. A 700-meg file in 25 minutes, when good sources are there. It has no limits as to how much I download and upload.

If this crazy policy passes, I will drop my internet speed package, for sure...


All the big-time online gamers will be affected by this too.........................

Yes, this is just crazy. I have several friends with Netflix and I am wondering what this would do to them as far as downloading movies.
