[h3]          Astroturf site from telcos' PR company against Net Neutrality         [/h3]There's a site called "HandsOff.org" that seems to be a grass-roots campaign from "a nationwide coalition of Internet users" against Internet regulation. On closer inspection, though it's nothing more than a front for business interests that was set up by a PR company called the [a href="http://www.mercgroup.com/"]Mercury Group[/a]. If you've ever wondered why government seems so far removed from the will of the people, the existence of 'astroturf' campaigns like this go some way to explaining why.  
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
