FCC’s Website Crashed by John Oliver’s Net Neutrality Plea

I was watching Last Week Tonight this evening and I took John Oliver’s plea to heart to go to the FCC website.

He even set up a vanity domain that redirects to the appropriate page: gofccyourself.com.

When I went there just after his show (at 11:36pm EST on May 7, 2017), I saw the screenshot below.

I tested it on my cell phone and got another non-working page (just blank white, no error message).

Your thoughts?
