After removing all duplicate and fake comments filed with the Federal Communications Commission last year, a Stanford researcher has found that 99.7 percent[pdf] of public comments—about 800,000 in all—were pro-net neutrality.

"With the fog of fraud and spam lifted from the comment corpus, lawmakers and their staff, journalists, interested citizens and policymakers can use these reports to better understand what Americans actually said about the repeal of net neutrality protections and why 800,000 Americans went further than just signing a petition for a redress of grievances by actually putting their concerns in their own words," Ryan Singel, a media and strategy fellow at Stanford University, wrote in a blog post Monday.

    Pedestal? Pedestal? My God, you really think that don't you. Here's a free clue since I'm a generous sort of girl: men harming and killing other men over access to womens' bodies--NOT women as whole, functioning adults, you understand, just warm holes to stick your dick into and maybe get children out of--is not putting women on a pedestal. It's *objectifying* us. Society is not "gynocentric," which is the word you'd use when talking about this if you had enough brains to fill a shot glass, because men harm and kill one another in the pursuit of, and I *hate* seeing this used as a mass commodity noun, pussy. Not to put too fine a point on it.

    There is a reason the basement-dwelling incel is a stereotype. And you are talking and acting precisely like it.

    I am "that girl" your mother warned you about...
