FFTF Calls For Net Neutrality Reversal Due To Fake Comments.

The comment system had no bot protection whatsoever, and a database containing millions of stolen names and addresses was used to create a massive number of fake comments, almost all in favor of dismantling Title II rules.

The FCC has yet to officially respond to Fight For The Future’s statement.

If Fight For The Future has its way, Congress could possibly reverse the repeal, pending a redo with a fully functional and well-maintained space for public comment.

Fight For The Future’s calls would ideally be answered through the Congressional Review Act, the same act that slowed down the repeal on its way through the government and almost stopped it in its tracks at one point.

According to Pai, one of the ways his agency is planning to fix the comment system going forward is by putting a captcha system in place to keep bots from spamming the section with fraudulent comments. »
