[DFRI-listan] Fwd: [ NNSquad ] Ad Blocking vs. ISPs ("The French Connection")

particularly by default -- is as abusive of their role as an Internet
access provider as would be their blocking particular sites or pages
with which they had a political disagreement.  It is a direct affront
to the most basic tenets of net neutrality, and should be vigorously
