I predict that the "dupe" will be posted by the editor known as "Timothy".
Many slashtards exhibit sociopathic behavior in the pursuit of getting modded up but I see that kind of thinking hasn't stopped your punk ass.
So says an "Anonymous Coward". Left you balls some place else?
You have a Twitter account? So, you admit you are a total loser?
It sounds from TFA like Google plans to make money off these customers more directly, through subscription fees for Internet service.
Yes, of course. There are bucket loads of cash to be made from sub-Saharan Africans, what with all of their disposable income.
My point is, connectivity is *not* Google primary business. Yes?
I wonder what kinds of things Google's customers will target at these people?
Stories like this, about things the DON'T Matter, should be ignored. Seriously, letâ(TM)s just agree that Facebook is cooked and done, and move onâ¦
But of course,
You, sir, are a pedantic ninny. Let's see how far that will take you with Verizon... Oh? You'll "sue" them? Will you really? Big talk from a guy with a neck beard sitting in his mother's basement wearing his mother's panties while playing WoW...
Cement is nothing more than limestone. You mix it with water, let it absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and you get calcium carbonate, which is the same composition as limestone. Concrete is just cement mixed with filler, like crushed rock.
And steel is just an alloy of iron and other elements, right.
Or is it more complex than that...
Christ, it's an argumentative 19-20-somthing! RUN!
You're a moron, but at your age, that is to be expected.
Ultimately, your goal is to get paid. If you don't do what the customer wants, you have failed to achieve your goal. What if the ability to do X harmed others?
Many companies exhibit sociopathic behaviors in pursuit of maximizing shareholder value.
No, A/C, the point being he violated the ToS, so they called him on it. It's really that simple.
Why offer an all you can eat buffet and then complain when somebody tries to stay at a table for days on end?
But it's *NOT* an "all you can eat" buffet without ground rules - the ToS, the contract *HE* ageed to.
The contract he agreed to says that he can't run these types of services on a HOME account. He agreed to this, it's not some mystery to Verizon made up "on the fly".
So by your logic...
No, that's not "my logic" at all.
To any reasonable person, what this guy is doing is not "home use". He's providing business level services to people outside his home and outside his family.
But this is irrelevant, because it's contrary to the contract that he himself agreed to.
My ISP told me, "we do not allow business accounts to be set up at residential addresses."
That's odd, many people run businesses out of their homes. It can't be Comcast, they had no problem giving me a business connection in my apartment.
You should be persistent; maybe they think you're a spammer / kiddie porn peddler / "pirate".
The reason he got slapped for a ToS violation is because he said "server" while talking to a rep
They are probably trained that running a server on a HOME account is almost always contrary to the terms that the user agreed to when signing up for the HOME plan...
I can't wait for FiOS to come to my area, right now I have Comcast Business at my home because I wish to run a server for various purposes (nope, I let Google handle my domain email, though there are other options). Comcast has ZERO issues with my usage becasues - guess what? - I'm not violating the ToS since I have a BUSINESS plan.
