Net Neutrality and "The Slowdown"


Wikia has put it out there that maybe wikis should join in placing this banner in prominent areas on the wiki to raise awareness of the present US legislative situation on net neutrality or lack thereof (said simply, Congress here in America wants to sign a law that says that ISPs (places like Comcast, BellSouth (are they still in business?), anything that provides your internet) can more or less play favorites based on who it is in their best interest to give you the fastest; this means that an ISP can slow down your ability to access certain sites unless those sites or even you (or your parents) give them more money, while sites the ISP has deals with might come to you faster). Net neutrality means that ISPs have to treat all sites equally--no speeding up or slowing down certain sites based on how much they or you pay. We have the option to add the banner at the top of this post to high-traffic areas of the site: places like the main/home page, mostly.

Personally, I'd like it if it could be deployed via site-wide message so it could be dismissed, but only staff have that tool, unfortunately.

Anyway, I wanted to open the discussion to you guys. What do you think is the best plan of action?
