John Oliver’s Army Of Internet Trolls Broke A Government Website

On the Sunday, June 1, episode of “[Last Week Tonight with John Oliver]” Oliver issued a rallying cry to angry online commenters to “focus your indiscriminate rage in a useful direction” against the Federal Communications Commission’s proposed changes to net neutrality regulations. The following day, the FCC website’s comment system received so much traffic, it stopped functioning for more than two hours. – Taylor Casti, HuffPost Tech
