Nobody is really arguing for infinity here. I think the point is that their trigger number is 4.7GB, which is a pretty paltry amount of data.

If an "all you can eat" buffet kicks someone out after their 25th plate of food I'm not going to be very sympathetic. If they claim all you can eat though and then force someone to leave after their 4th chicken wing due to "fair use policies" then I"m going to cry foul.

I have worked directly with CEO's in the past, when they are doing leisure they are still working. Their phone will go off all times of day.
So he may be on a Yacht, he was probably still working there.

The issue with drugs is it gives people an unfair advantage. At the cost of their long term health. If you are in an environment where everyone else is working 80+ hours per week, you need to in order to not look like a lazy employee dragging everyone down.

It seems that a lot of internet companies make their money from adds. If this buisness model was so bad it would have stopped decades ago.

So how do you propose web sites to be funded. People don't like a pay wall, ISP will not pay you for their customers visit. If your site doesn't meet the need for the greater common good then you probably won't have the government or some other large grant funding you. However you have costs to pay for. The add model is the best we can get unless you know of some superior buisness model.

They're like the goddamned Westboro Baptist Church, trying to leech publicity from anything that makes the news. They are not, and have never been an environmentalist organization. They're a marketing organization, that sucks up money by guilt peddling.

If you want to help the environment, then donate to a local group in your area, the Sierra Club, Ducks Unlimited, or any of dozens of others.
