We got by with the help of our friends... :) One of our greatest supporters was and still is EPIC and they continue to fight the good fight for the neutrality of the web... We want to support them in this great cause and will be posting their articles in the future and will continue to be one of their most faithful backers until we win this war. I hope you will join us in backing them also...          From the FACTNet Family...   :)
