Everyone should have a right to access the internet without the assumption that just because they can break the law, doesn't mean they will. I have some knives in my kitchen, as most people do. Does that make me a murderer? [b]ABSOLUTELY NOT!!![/B]
Seriously, someone needs to hold AT&T for accountable for the information they pirate from their own customers. Why should we be called pirates, when they are the ones attacking us! Just because some people are pirates, doesn't mean everyone is.
If MacDonald's were to treat their customers half as bad ("You're eyes are too close together, therefore we can't trust you and refuse to serve you"), these customers would disappear in a matter of weeks. Yet for reasons I couldn't possibly understand, users are completely oblivious when it comes to tech giants mistreating them.
If you ask me, they should change their name to "TTT" (Treacherous, Totalitarian Telecommunications). IMHO, there's nothing "American" about making people pay good money to have their constitutional rights to privacy violated on a large scale. I'll bet Randall Stephenson wouldn't want us spying on him!
As soon as my own contract with TTT expires, I'll be dumping them for good!
