If the FCC is going to consider comments from dead people and obvious bots, why not create bots that spam it with pro-net neutrality comments from dead people?

Simpsons did it.

This article is tagged with the well known “cable company fuckery” tag.

Since he is clearly now complicit, I propose a new tag:

I suspect this same thing happened to voting machines last November to get the orange toilet floater elected.

“I see dead people.”

NEVER!

“… Center for Individual Freedom.”

This is like, “Peoples Democratic Republic” in the list of names that don’t mean what they want you to think they mean.

Why do the dead hate our freedom?!?


#17

They should go back where they came from!

We’re all on our way there
