    Quick! Everyone! Look at the Russians! Over here! *waves arms frantically* Look at all the bad Russians!

    Ok billionaires, i think they're distracted. Continue buying all of the politicians and undermining democracy in every Western country on the planet. Yeah, don't worry, they're too stupid to figure it out. They're actually convinced Russian bots won the 2016 election for Trump, now they're thinking they are the reason for NN failing, too. Fuckin' idiots will never figure it out.

    Yeah don't worry - i know the entire country wants cheaper/free healthcare, a smaller military budget, the end of the war on drugs, less of a police state, legalised weed and so on but i'm telling you, its worked for the past 50 years - just keep sending the senators money. You'll be fine. Yeah don't worry about Occupy Wallstreet or other massive public movements. Who would win? Dozens of millions of angry people or $5,000,000 in the right pockets?

    I mean it's a kleptocracy run by a mob boss who wishes he was Stalin, but the point is they don't have any ideological reason to favour Pai's attack on net neutrality. They're just straight up pushing Republican policies in an obvious tit for tat.

    If you ever ran a website that offers registration, you'd know that Russian bots are on top of spamming game. You'd get some spam offering spam services. They are the ones breaking complex captchas (though sometimes use cheap labor from India to pass through hard to break captchas). Law enforcement in Russia doesn't care about anything that's happening on internet, so these companies are making big buck while their competition in other countries has to deal with police.

    Then there is issue of open proxy servers. Due to same thing I mentioned above - lack of policing, there are plenty of computers in Russia with open proxies installed. Many use them to hide their actual origin. That means any company from US spamming those submission forms could easily use any of thousands of anonymous proxies in Russia and hide their origin. Since there is no law enforcement in Russia, nobody would ever check proxy server's logs (if they even have logs), so real origin will never become available and there is bonus of blaming Russia for everything that brainwashed masses will swallow without questioning.
    Calls someone a conspiracy theorist. Suggests American companies are framing Russia for Russian interference.

    Oh, I forgot that no one blames Billionaires for corruption in the US. Everyone love 'em. Thank you for reminding us who to properly hate again.

    Well... who owns the internet utilities in Russia? Probably some government entity headed/owned by one of those kleptarcs. Wouldn't surprise me if they approved of the idea of US companies, who are also in a way owned by kleptarcs, to have greater control over the people through the control of information. I know I'm reaching but it's a little mind bug that popped in.
    If people truly wanted equality between the races, they'd stop making up special rules for what each group can and cannot do.

    Internet access is one of the areas where Russia is quite ahead of US.

    And competition on internet provider front is quite fierce. My own city has something like 10+ major providers, and my own home is covered by at least three (probably more). I'm getting unlimited 100mbit for 650 roubles (~10$) and i could probably drop it to about 450-500 by switching (with added digital TV) if i wouldn't need some older options new connection isn't going to give.

    Government-owned companies mostly control internet backbone and deal with providing internet services to big companies.

    Yea, the odds seem a little stacked against those seeking to restore it. But given that the vast majority of people, republican & democrat (according to some of the stats i've seen thrown around here at least), are against removing NN, they seem to have the backing of the general populace.

    Fine with me. Making the internet too expensive or restrictive to use. Article 13 killing memes. It is all the same.

    I hope it is a shell of its former self when the fucking burucrates are done with it.

    Not only that but Net Neutrality should be reinstated since the polls were the excuse Ajit Pai used to remove it.
