    Previously, Malvado, did a great job of bringing us the disturbing news that Verizon was filing a lawsuit to block the Net Neutrality Act. Recent headlines warrant a follow-up to that piece. It seems that the FCC "isn't having any of that nonsense" and has filed a motion to toss out Verizon's suit. Here's a quote from BGR with some details and responses from the FCC,
    Although it's only a start, it is still good to see the FCC standing up for what is right. Of course, that is their responsibility, but sometimes they are pretty slow to act. Luckily, they aren't hesitating this time. Share your thoughts.

    This is one of those rare instances where I support the government agency because the idea of corporate suzerainty over the Net is just as disheartening as the idea of government control.
