2017, what a hell of a year. It was a year that seemed to last an eternity, yet pass by like a car crash. And through it all, countless people — and things — spent the year unwittingly vying for the title of the biggest villain on the internet. With many worthy nominees, it’s going to be a tight race: Twitter is nominated for doubling the character limit for double the harassment; Equifax is in the running for its monumental data breach that involved an unbelievable chronology of mismanagement, and Ajit Pai has emerged as a strong favorite thanks to his success in defeating net neutrality. Who will win? Place your bets — using your preferred volatile cryptocurrency — and watch.
