Clarification on this story

I'd like to clarify a point in this story that unfortunately may be confusing as written, at least the version I'm currently reading. NNSquad is specifically *not* pushing neutrality legislation issues. The whole point of the project is to gather, analyze, and publicize useful data. As I told the author of the piece, it may turn out that this data will convince policymakers that neutrality legislation is needed, but that is by no means a given and the project does not have the goal of legislation. In fact, the project signatories represent a range of views on the desirability or undesirability of such legislation.

First collect the data, and then the chips will fall where they may.

I thought it important to make this clear. Thanks very much.
