‘WeRateDogs’ Owner Realizes Net Neutrality Killer Ajit Pai Follows Him On Twitter, Gives Him A Taste Of His Own Medicine

Just in case you missed it, let us use this time to remind you of the awesomeness of We Rate Dogs. Not only does it provide hours of lighthearted, high quality doggy-related laughs, now they are helping fight the good fight for net neutrality too.

Matt Nelson, AKA The Dogfather, had apparently noticed that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, a strong proponent of a rule change that would threaten net neutrality as we know it, was following and retweeting from one of his Twitter accounts, Thoughts Of Dog.

Using the opportunity to make his point after asking for trolling advice from his followers, Nelson outlined a premium payment scheme available for Pai to purchase if he wishes to continue receiving his daily pupdates, and in the process neatly illustrated the potential future for many of us if net neutrality rules are successfully repealed.

Critics of Pai’s planned changes have warned that ISP’s may begin to offer packaged internet plans, with websites offered in bundles much the same way as cable companies offer TV channels. As well as costing the consumer more in the long run, it also opens up concerns regarding censorship and increasing centralised control of the internet. None of this really works out for the majority of us who like our internet open and free does it?

As far as intelligent trolling goes, we here at Bored Panda think it’s a pretty good effort. 17/10.

Thank goodness the Internet has sustained despite commercial, national and whatever interests having tried to undermine its very pillars. All those who oppose such actions deserve kudos!

The money he will get from it will buy whatever freedom he wants for himself. Meanwhile the rest of us are screwed.
