beatrice_otter: This looks like a good day for World Domination (World Domination)

As you know, Bob, Net Neutrality is (among other things) the principle that your ISP shouldn't be able to play with your browsing speed to drive you to their services and away from their competitors.  There are a lot of great explanations of this online, including John Oliver's.  A couple of years ago this came up for a vote, the American people spoke firmly and coherently in favor of net neutrality, and the FCC so ruled.

Now, Trump's government is trying to undo that.  If you haven't already done so, please go comment on the FCC's proposed rule change.

Second, the FCC and others are trying to prevent real comments and put fake ones using stolen names and information, instead.*  So please check and see if your name has been used to send a fake anti-net-neutrality comment.

*It's possible that the FCC is completely innocent and that it really was a DDoS attack that just HAPPENED to take down their servers when John Oliver's piece on the rules change aired, but in that case, why would they not publish the evidence on it when questioned?  And why would they not respond to evidence from multiple news organizations that many of the comments on their website were completely fake?
