Comment: FiOS (Score 1) 335

This is precisely why I go with the lesser of the evils, Verizon FiOS. I wouldn't give Comcast my money if they were the last ISP in the United States. I would simply just go with mobile broadband and stop streaming altogether if I had no alternative to Comcast. Really, all telecom companies are crooks but Comcast takes it to entirely new lows.

I had one of these fookers once and decided to have a little bit of fun. I played myself off as an absolutely dumb user with very, very short term memory and kept asking the representative to repeat himself. I strung them along for 30 minutes before finally revealing that I was using Linux. I got yelled at and then they slammed the phone down. I hate these pond scum predators.

It is quite possible that all three points that the submitter raises are valid. I'm very likely to believe that the design was intentional. After all, in the software world, the consumer has become the beta tester and if the consumer has software problems, he or she needs to buy expensive "support packages." In effect, the marketing departments figured out how to force the consumer to be a beta tester and make money from the consumer's problems.

Nothing about what the Koch brothers do is ethical. They whip up a fear storm to get people who are less intelligent or less willing to think for themselves to side with them. It's amazing how many people will parrot back what they hear and vote against their interests.

It is surely a great calamity for a human being to have no obsessions. - Robert Bly
