I don't think this is fake as I saw a short notice of it in the
papers. the hearings start tomorrow so today or at least by
tomorrow will be the best time to protest.
I received this from a reliable source .

I AM WRITING TO INFORM YOU OF A VERY IMPORTANT MATTER CURRENTLY UNDER
REVIEW BY THE FCC. YOUR LOCAL TELEPHONE COMPANY HAS FILED A PROPOSAL WITH
THE FCC TO IMPOSE PER MINUTE CHARGES FOR YOUR INTERNET SERVICE. THEY
CONTEND THAT YOUR USAGE HAS OR WILL HINDER THE OPERATION OF THE TELEPHONE
NETWORK. IT IS MY BELIEF THAT INTERNET USAGE WILL DIMINISH IF USERS WERE
REQUIRED TO PAY ADDITIONAL PER MINUTE CHARGES. THE FCC HAS CREATED AN
E-MAIL BOX FOR YOUR COMMENTS; RESPONSES MUST BE RECEIVED BY FEB 13, 1997.
SEND YOUR COMMENTS TO:
isp -at- fcc -dot- gov
AND TELL THEM WHAT YOU THINK. EVERY PHONE
COMPANY IS IN ON THIS ONE, AND THEY ARE TRYING TO SNEAK IT IN JUST UNDER
THE WIRE FOR LITIGATION. LET EVERYONE YOU KNOW HEAR THIS ONE. GET THE
E-MAIL ADDRESS TO EVERYONE YOU CAN THINK OF AND FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO ALL
YOUR FRIENDS ON THE INTERNET SO ALL OUR VOICES MAY BE HEARD.
(Do onto others 20% better than you would have them do onto you, to account for subjective error.)
