Reddit is today joining the discussion about net neutrality, as most of the front page is plastered with posts and ads about saving the “free and open internet.”

You might have noticed something a little different about Reddit this morning.

We're running NetNeutrality ads across our site to raise awareness for the fight to save the free and open internet.

Along with a series of posts about various US government officials and ads about the topic, the Reddit logo appears to load very slowly and is covered with a sign that says, “Monthly Bandwidth Exceeded, Click to Upgrade.” This is a reference to the common fear that ISPs will arbitrarily slow sites down, forcing them to pay for faster access.
