Bloomberg: FCC Got 444,938 Net-Neutrality Comments From Russian Email Addresses

Bloomberg: FCC Got 444,938 Net-Neutrality Comments From Russian Email Addresses. “A study has found more than 7.75 million comments were submitted from email domains attributed to FakeMailGenerator.com, and they had nearly identical wording. The FCC says some of the nearly 23 million comments on Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to gut Obama-era rules were filed under the same name more than 90 times each. And then there were the 444,938 from Russian email addresses, which also raised eyebrows, even though it’s unclear if they were from actual Russian citizens or computer bots originating in the U.S. or elsewhere.”
