Last May, former FCC Chief Information Officer (CIO) David Bray claimed that the agency was "a victim to a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS attack, a scheme in which hackers overwhelm a target site with fake traffic" during the net neutrality fight. It looks like an upcoming report from the FCC's inspector general will dispute Bray's (DDoS) claims that a cyberattack hit the agency's comment section in May 2017. Instead, it appears that concerned citizens, not bots or fake people,  who wanted to show their support net neutrality made the FCC website slow down.

Federal authorities have located and arrested a California man suspected of threatening to kill FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's children. He faces a maximum of 10 years in the federal slammer. He "is charged with a threatening to murder a member of the immediate family of a U.S. official with the intent to intimidate or interfere with such official while engaged in the performance of official duties, or with the intent to retaliate against such official on account of the performance of official duties," says the Department of Justice. According to a Department of Justice press release, the man was upset about the repeal of net neutrality and was trying to frighten Pai in retaliation.

Remember when the FCC repealed net neutrality last December? Net neutrality supporters went into hyperbole-overload. Some even spewed racial slurs at FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and stalked his house. You would've thought the world, or at the least, the internet would end. The FCC's Restoring Internet Freedom Order went into effect today, June 11, and...the internet is still working. The world is still turning.

Last year, we documented the many times losers harassed FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his family because he had the nerve to unravel net neutrality. THE HORROR. Even though it's over and done with, Pai and his family still face harassment, including racist remarks. Weird, considering that side is supposedly tolerant.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai has been targeted by radical leftists for his stance on net neutrality. Seemingly unfazed by the hate, Pai joined IJR to read nasty tweets lobbed at him by anonymous internet trolls...and it's wonderful:

On early Monday morning, the U.S. Appeals Court decided not to rehear a challenge to its decision to uphold the net neutrality rules, known as Title II, from former President Barack Obama. Its decision comes right after FCC Chairman Ajit Pai made it known he will continue with his plan to roll back these net neutrality rules. Obama's rules do not allow broadband users to slow or block "rivals' content." Netflix and Apple enjoy Obama's rules, but AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast cannot stand them because those companies want "to slow or even block the transmission of disfavored content."

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai took his war on net neutrality to Europe for the Mobil World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. He told his counterparts that the rules implemented under former President Barack Obama closed off progress as the world becomes more dependent on technology:
"We are confident in the decades-long, cross-party consensus on light-touch Internet regulation — one that helped America’s digital economy thrive," Pai said. "Our approach will be not zero regulation, but light-touch regulation — rules backed by long-standing principles of competition law."
