I have no faith that the government won't fall for this blatant lie.
I see what you did there... and I agree. When a government has been bought, it should stay bought. Right?
This is totally normal for ISPs. up-selling, attempts to retain customers at any cost. At comcast it was pressed on our call center tech support guys fairly hard but moreso on customer service reps in the billing/accounts department. at AT&T there was literally a whole department called "the save team" who got financial incentives to retain customers. if you called to cancel, you would be put on the line with the save team. they could get credit for a save if they could transfer a customer back to technical support "oh, our tech guys can fix that problem for you and your service will be fine, plus i gave you a month credit" (or something to that affect). and then the tech staff would get this transferred call about how their printer didnt work. completely unrelated, and after being bounced around and on hold, then being told "uhhh. we cant help you with that", they got right pissed and demanded to cancel again. the save team rep, already got a notch on their saved belt but the customer still quit. it was a corrupt system right to the core
Horseshit! The way to keep me as a customer is to deliver good value for my money. Presumably, that means at least delivering what we agreed upon when I signed up. If I call because you're not delivering that, fucking fix it and then give me my month's credit. I will go away happy. But do not, under any circumstances, try hardball tactics to get me to give you still more money for things that I'm now certain you can't/won't deliver. You will only solidify my opinion that you are a bad bet and that I should buy my service from one of your competitors. Hey! Stop laughing. There might be one...
How does getting onto the VPN equate to accessing the secret stuff? Isn't there another layer of security?
That is a good point. OK, they gained a presence on a sensitive network. How is it that they were able to bang around and breach critical systems on that network with no one noticing? No IDS/IPS that would have detected something like that? Or were the systems so poorly secured that breaching them didn't make enough noise for an IDS to notice?
They applied for a permit to get a roof deck; and were asked straight out for a bribe to make it happen, when they refused.... so was their permit. This shit goes on everywhere.
Because it goes on where you are? Provincialism fallacy much?
Remember back when you were 14, what you understood as the Internet was an entirely different thing.
When I was fourteen, there was no such thing as "the Internet", you insensitive clod.
It is absolutely racist to argue that this or that trait gives this or that group an "unfair" in advantage in this or that pursuit.
The police, who wants to fight piracy which is claimed to be happening by the corporations, go bust servers with neither warrants nor court orders. What exactly are making these claims legit enough to skip due process? Or is due process some sort of privilege that we shouldn't expect them in the first place?
Due process? Who do you think you are? Some citizen with some kind of rights? You are our customers, and you will take what we give you, and like it.
Your Corporate Overlords
