Shunting the FCC To the Slow Lane

An anonymous reader writes "Following the FCC's proposal a couple weeks ago to allow an internet fast lane, a group of activists have come up with a fun counterproposal: force the FCC itself into the slow lane to show them how bad it is. They write, 'Since the FCC seems to have no problem with this idea, I've (through correspondence) gotten access to the FCC's internal IP block, and throttled all connections from the FCC to 28.8kbps modem speeds on the Neocities.org front site, and I'm not removing it until the FCC pays us for the bandwidth they've been wasting instead of doing their jobs protecting us from the "keep America's internet slow and expensive forever" lobby.' They've published the code snippet that throttles FCC IP addresses and encourage other web admins to implement it."
