I'm getting this when accessing the site now. I thought Pinside was supposed to be free of politics. Is anyone else seeing this?
Quoted from robin:
The banner is there, just for today, to raise awareness about (the importance of) Net Neutrality. I know this has nothing to do with pinball, but it has lots to do with the future of (sites like) Pinside. Net Neutrality is very important and I hope you will all take a minute to read about it and why it matters.

Quoted from Crash:
To be clear, I support this too. I'm just wondering about the no politics policy that's already in place or if that's now more acceptable.
No, still the same rules apply for politics. This is a special case, and like Robin says, this has to do with the future of the Internet and what happens to sites and services on the Internet, like Pinside and so many other sites, both large and small.
Unfortunately, most people are not aware of what net neutrality means or what the effects of dismantling it would lead to.
This is a heads up on an important matter if you wish to continue enjoying the Internet operates as it is now.
