Net Neutrality Comment Analysis

Ragtag analyzed the millions of public comments submitted to the FCC about net neutrality to identify which comments were submitted by bots, which were submitted by humans, and overall, what the United States really thinks about net neutrality. We identified comment templates and fake email addresses, as well as emailing thousands of people to see if they had really posted comments from their email addresses. Ragtag concluded that, of the legitimate comments, ninety percent were pro-net neutrality and two percent were anti-net neutrality. To see how we did it and what we found in more detail, check out our Medium post here!
