. . . .Above you may donate money to offset the cost of registering this domain and posting/hosting information relevant to the future  litigation against the FCC, Chairman Commissioner Pai, and Commissioner O'Rielly for Deprivation of Rights per U..S.C. 42 1983 or the Statute making it a civil tort for depriving a citizen of any rights, privileges, or immunities like by speaking deceptively and falsely about U.S. law(s) and U.S. (enternet) history in a YouTube.com video posting.

. . . .The "donation or gift" to Curtis J. Neeley Jr. is not tax deductible and will be used to keep the (enternet) a Depression-era Title II common carrier of telecommunications like this was for most of the last two decades.  The (enternet) will now be regulated by the FCC so different delivery speeds are not allowed and blocking of any legal content is prohibited. Anonymous viewing of porn broadcast by wire is the wildly illegal and wildly dishonorable past the FCC must soon end.

. . . .The (enternet) has always been an unsafe Title II common carrier treated as if this common carrier of telecommunications were some mysterious "unique and wholly new medium" instead of the merger of radio communications and wire communications the "net" has always been due to culturally senile oligarchs at SCOTUS.

. . . .Reno v ACLU, 521 U.S. 844 (1997)  has been wholly VOID since 1999 due to development of wi-fi and cultural and factual changes in the (enternet). All competent lawyers and judges in the U.S. have known this for over a decade.

. . . .Mobile "broadband" is just wire communications ending with radio communication on an end like fixed "broadband" being used to allow local wi-fi.

. . . .A broadcast by wire and radio is placing "content" on a computer connected to "online" and disclosing the "location" of this content. If content may then be accessed without authentication; This content has been broadcast by wire and radio and may not be indecent, obscene or profane due to 18 U.S.C 1464 per FCC v Pacifica, (1978).
