RSS icon Comments on AT&T Gives Local Political Consultant $50K


As a former employee of one of the devil-spawn subsidiaries of AT&T, I can vouch that the wild ass cowboys from Texas (SBC)who bought Mother are a bunch of dick weed, Dubya lovin' Republican ass wipes. Reach out and touch someone, my ass. More like reach out and grab them by the nuts before turning them over to the NSA.

this falls under the category of price discrimination. and from the firm's perspective it is a good thing. from a consumer's perspective it might be unfair but really people are getting the service and product they are willing to pay for.

oh yeah, how are the stranger staff deciding what to bold? is this something that they learned through hanging out together is this actually taught in school? I ask because everyone on the staff does it and it makes the use of bolding useless because it is used so often.

It's not just that.

Net neutrality means ISPs have no reason to "inspect" your emails, and other message traffic, including videos.

If we let them "shape" traffic, we let them spy on us.
