Meg Whitman emails users about net neutrality

A pretty interesting move, eBay’s CEO has emailed about a million eBay users, arguing for net neutrality. The email starts like this:

As you know, I almost never reach out to you personally with a request to get involved in a debate in the U.S. Congress. However, today I feel I must.

Right now, the telephone and cable companies in control of Internet access are trying to use their enormous political muscle to dramatically change the Internet. It might be hard to believe, but lawmakers in Washington are seriously debating whether consumers should be free to use the Internet as they want in the future.
