Dear network operators,

I'm sure this is a controversial topic in the NANOG community, but EFF and a
number of ISPs and networking companies are writing to Congress opposing the
repeal of the FCC's broadband privacy rules, which require explicit opt-in
consent before ISPs use or sell sensitive, non-anonymized data (including
non-anonymized locations and browsing histories).

If you or your employer would like to sign on to such a letter, please reply
off-list by midday Monday with your name, and a one-sentence description of
your affiliation and/or major career accomplishments. 

Back story on what's happening:
