You are the target of Comcast & NBC/Universal. You do not want this to happen. Imagine what would happen if NS's video section was seen as competition to NBC action sports' videos. Comcast degrades the amount of bandwidth available for you to access NS and tries to steer you towards their content.
this is not going to be a long drawn out battle, you need to act with rapidity, become informed and become an advocate for net neutrality.

if you are concerned about your email address, with gmail at least you can append '+(string)' before the @gmail to tag your submission. This just means that you'll know how someone got your email if you ever get spam/follow up emails. (though you won't get spam from this)
Copy of open letter:
Dear Attorney General Holder and Chairman Genachowski,
We write to urge you to reject the merger of Comcast Corporation and NBC Universal.
This deal would mean higher cable rates and less freedom of choice for American consumers, and it would give a single media conglomerate unprecedented control over the flow of information in America. Whenever the same company owns both the content and the pipes delivering that content, consumers lose.
Already, we have seen that Comcast is not operating in good faith. By imposing a new fee on the company delivering Netflix’s online video streaming, Comcast is trying to kill off a competitor. Comcast has also refused to provide the FCC with documents necessary for the review process, and has already named the 43 executives who will take over NBC Universal.
As American consumers, we know a bad deal when we see one. Allowing this merger to proceed could lead to subsequent deals, leaving Americans at the mercy of a few powerful media conglomerates.
Don’t fall for Comcast’s spin. Don’t be swayed by their army of lobbyists. Stand up for American consumers. Stop this merger.

All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others
