Net Neutrality: Today Is (Probably) the Day

I've been banging on about FCC Chair Ajit Pai and his crusade to destroy Net Neutrality for literally the entire year, and now the moment of reckoning has arrived: Today is the day when the FCC is scheduled to vote on Net Neutrality.

There has been no indication that Pai will delay the vote, despite the fact that an investigation by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office has found that "as many as two million comments [submitted during the Net Neutrality public comment process] misused the identities of real Americans, including over 100,000 comments per state from New York, Florida, Texas, and California," and that 18 state attorneys general have petitioned the FCC to delay the rule-making process.

So, this is it, folks. No more time to put off making noise to save Net Neutrality.
