Fake public comments to the FCC

Post by Tunnelcat » Thu Dec 14, 2017 12:51 pm

So, will the FCC go ahead and still vote to repeal those net neutrality rules today, despite this new revelation that their public comment process is horrendously broken and has been manipulated by someone(s) unknown, or will they charge ahead anyway because big business and Trump demand it, especially since it was an Obama era rule?

14 lawsuits to be filed, since they went ahead with this. Over 2.4 MILLION bogus comments, from dead people even in a few documented cases. Clear case of outside interference in the public comment process.

This link is for all those Republicans who visit here and support Trump and Agi Pai's FCC decision.

And thus a weaselly corporate cock-sucker killed the free Internet. Cheetolini is a one-man apocalypse.

Ajit Pai is a liar and always has been on this subject. A few weeks ago I read an article where someone used some analysis tools to dig into the distribution of comments in the FCC system, and once you strip away the several million form letters and blatant robot submissions, of the actual "organic" comments 99.7% of them supported keeping the existing Title II classification and rules. Nobody wanted this except for Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, Charter, and anyone on or planning to be on their payroll (likely including Ajit Pai himself, if only people could sue him for corruption).

The former chairman Tom Wheeler has even publicly called the repeal a fraud.
