It looks like a lot more of you have strong opinions on net neutrality than initially thought. The FCC has just announced that it’s received more than 3 million comments on the topic, which blows away the previous estimate of 1.48 million and is more than twice that of the hubbub caused by Janet Jackson’s “Nipplegate” back in 2004. Of course, seeing as net neutrality has gained quite a bit of coverage thanks to John Oliver and the recent “Day of Action” campaign, it’s not exactly surprising that citizens everywhere are up in arms about the issue. If you want to chime in as well, you had better do so soon — comments on the topic end in just a few hours.
