Merge Right to Internet access article to this article?[edit]

I suggest that the existing Right to Internet access article should be merged into this article. There is considerable overlap between the two articles already and I don't see the need to maintain both. The "Right to Internet access" article would become a #REDIRECT to the "Digital rights" article. What do others think? -Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 13:49, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

The following two comments were copied from Talk:Right to Internet access:

  • Oppose Right to Internet access and digital rights are different concepts. --SupernovaExplosion Talk 06:44, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Could you say a little more about the differences? I see the "Right to Internet access" as one of the rights included in the broader category of "Digital rights". Thus the "Right to Internet access" is more specific than "Digital rights", but not entirely different. -Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 13:24, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

This merger proposal has failed to gain much support or opposition. Lets withdraw the proposal for now and revisit the issue sometime in the future. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 13:09, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

A small bit of opinion has been snuck in:[edit]

+3% = MOST in this bit: Most Internet users (53%) felt that "the internet should never be regulated by any level of government anywhere".

-2% = Evenly split in this bit: Opinion was evenly split between Internet users who felt that “the internet is a safe place to express my opinions” (48%) and those who disagreed (49%).

Just take out the vague "most" bit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.91.120.57 (talk) 17:59, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
