There is no "push." It's a legal requirement for them to take comments from the public on the settlement.

All the PW article is saying is that the DoJ got so many comments that they don't want to incur the costs of printing it on paper, which would run $100k.

I didn't say the DoJ won't accept it.

I'm saying that compared to other antitrust settlements, this is a large volume of data. Unlike the email you send to your elected representative, it has to be distributed to many people as part of the process. Thus it makes sense they'd want to issue it electronically rather than on paper.

It should be on their website soon, so if you're truly curious to see who has sent what, you'll be able to see for yourself.
