Adding insult to injury is just how little some of the representatives had donated to them from the ISPs to fork over our personal data.

People were alarmed that the bill would pass, like "Cards Against Humanity" creator Max Temkin.

Temkin vowed on Twitter that if the anti-net neutrality bill was passed that he would personally buy the private browsing history of each and every Congress person and Congressional aide who voted for the bill and publish it online for the entire world to see.

Now that the bill has passed, Temkin promised people he'll use his personal wealth to do it and warns against crowdfunding campaigns.
