    Well this might be interesting. The link that @TotalInsanity4 posted for the resist bot seemed to worked.
    In case anyone is interested:
    Response

    So what do you think?

    I think it's a start. Supposedly the FCC is getting a flood of letters from Senators, so keep it up guys

    That said, you should, as of now, either call or directly fax (with signature) FCC chairpersons rather than using ResistBot, because Pai is using it as an excuse to throw letters of disproval away

    I'm really suprised that nobody is even boycotting Verizon for even starting the lawsuit against net neutrality. Might as well hit two birds at the same time, or did I get my info mixed up?

    Nope, you understand correctly. That's actually why ISPs ended up under Class II regulations in the first place

    And on top of that, guess who Ajit Pai worked for

    I agree that more regulation is probsbly a not good thing, but this guy really does not care about net neutrality. He really doesn't give any guarantee that net neutrality will be a thing, he just says ISPs have to be transparent under current law.

    So basically, this guy is OK with, say, Comcast blocking Netflix as long they say "Yup, we're blocking Netflix, cuz fuck you."

    He could advocate for the removal of the Open Internet Order and assure that he would propose a net neutrality law so net neutrality can exist under Title I. But he clearly doesn't care.

    Edit: Originally made a typo and said I preferred more regulation, which is the opposite of my actual views.

    Actually, lawyer for Verizon

    Did he also work for AT&T or was that a joke?

    I think he means that, but its not like applying that to everything in the sentence would be wrong

    If it makes you guys feel better, it's very likely the FCC will get sued when it announces the decision, and it may be unable to implement it until the lawsuits are settled.
