That is a hugely impressive number of complaints. If that were one per person that would be between 1 in 3 and 1 in 4 Americans complaining about the threat to Net Neutrality. I expect there is a healthy bot community in the responses however, especially since it was so hard to get on the site during the comment period. Still, that is a lot of feedback for the FCC to just ignore.


#3

Oh this is totally biased. I’ll bet he completely ignored the comments like “I heart Comcast,” and “Corporations are people.”


#4

Well, yes. Surely to have any weight we must see the strengths of the pro arguments on the same map. Maybe we are though. Perhaps they’re the tiny little unlabeled islands? I think we should be told.


#5

No no, they must be presented as if they had equal weight. This is called balance. Cf: climate change.


#6

Of course. Silly of me.


#7

The anti-net neutrality comments were so overwhelming they were simply left out of this analysis, in order to maintain some level of detail. I understand the first draft was just an image of IC1101 next to a grain of sand.


#8

Ah, well, you’ll be needing a log scale to emphasise the importance of the small stuff then. Without telling anyone of course.
