No shit. I've only met one person who was for it and it was because they were misinformed by tv.
Interestingly many comment submissions to campaigns like this feature some sort of templates or script. To make those scripts vary is pretty interesting as the analysis shows. I guess purportedly stealing millions of people identities is not proven here but it doesn't seem too surprising given recent data leaks
>millions of pro-repeal comments were likely faked
Yeah, no shit. This is the internet, 80% of comments you'll find pretty much anywhere are likely faked. People don't understand how easy it is to give the illusion of consensus on literally any issue.
Can you argue that whatever we say is irrelevant, our collective and once sanctified voice means nothing these days. It seems our “voice” can be hacked and placed into modern day sound or type “bytes” to purport basically anyone’s agenda without the consent of the person. I feel like this is the slippery slope to a bigger picture and awareness of how helpless we are in the face of swaying opinion when it can be easily fabricated.
I believe it. Been seeing this copypasta making the rounds on Reddit with days old accounts:
>it is not a freedom, it is a **business right**. It goes **along the lines of not wanting to sell someone a cake because of their skin color or sex affilation.**
>It should absolutely be allowed. Businesses should live or die by the market and culture they exist in. If people do not wish to support such a business, they will close down. The fucking thing with ISP's is competition. THAT is what you should be fighting for. Not more regulation of business. More regulation of businesses just standardizes services and lowers consumer benefit, on top of less business potential.
>I've contacted the FCC and my legislators and told them I am for the removal of net neutality, as someone growing up as business owner and someone who wishes for a more hospital environment for future business to thrive.
More choices. Not less. Down with net neutrality.
>It would surprise people how much movement there actually is for this, we had a rally here which was just a spinoff of a greater one in the close by city. Reddit seems to think everyone is for net neut, and it's unanimous except for the isp's, and that couldn't be further from the truth.
Possibly Ajit Pai and his buddies getting some Russian hackers and doin themselves a heckin Correct the Record
