A) Yes, I realized this after my haste to make the joke.
B) You have clearly missed that this was supposed to be a joke.
C) Had this story actually been about tides and not wind (see A above,) then I would be right: retarding the tidal bulges even more than they already are (via harnessing) would slingshot the moon even faster than the tides currently do.

You should re-read the comment you are replying to. You have misunderstood Chrisq's point (which is, in summary: by talking about the spammer's stupidity in this case, we risk alerting said spammers to their stupidity, in which case they might correct it. It is better for us to just STFU about it.) And of course, by replying to you I am now part of that problem. Damn!

Please everyone just leave T-Mobile alone. They are doing great the last few years.

I agree, but T-Mobile is doing great because they don't *want* to be left alone. They are being so aggressive with their pricing because they want to be targetted for a buy-out. Their parent company, Deutsche Telekom AG, has made it clear that they want out of that business.
