I don't think you're taking into account the difference between "not knowing" and "getting paid to allow the provider exclusive access" in some form or another.
Tell your installer and Dish to ignore the maintenance guy. Read the website that MrLogic posted... It informs you of what your rights are. If they start removing multiple dishes from account holders, Dish may just handle it for you...
I agree, possible lawsuit. I've read into it many times.Hanging out of the window might do the job...
They are allowed to have them out of site, on the roof, on their "reasonably private" patios etc, but supposedly not allowed to hang them on the outside of the building attached to the exterior...
Does AT&T still have to offer a speed like that at the $20/month rate? I know they used to... They just weren't required to advertise it.
Heart of silicon valley... I'm SURE the frequencies are congested there, but I'm also sure that's because they exist in great numbers out there.... Wireless ISP's? Some of them have pretty decent rates. http://www.wispa.org/Directories/Find-a-WISP
I'm guessing you're being sarcastic? I want him over Hillary by about a million times over, but don't see him asking his FCC chairman to start interfering with good ol' "Capitalism"

Wow. 239 one seems relevant to our current lineup of movies... ""Never be afraid to mislabel a product."
Well, you're close, anyway... It already happened. See: "Gene Roddenberry's : Andromeda" it was a Star Trek adapted to a non-Trek property because Paramount wasn't interested.
I really want to understand...
The way most people (including me) seems to understand the fan-film 'arrangement' for Trek and Wars.....
If they can do a fan-film and pay the vendors to provide costumes, props, and caterers, etc... It's allegedly fine, as the producers are not technically making a profit from using Star Trek properties. (The same appears to be true with Lucasfilm/Star Wars, but apparently it's laid out more specifically in writing?)
It even seems like it's even better (safer, legally) for the producers/creators if there's a LOSS on the whole endeavor.
A friend of mine is a guild-member script writer who knows more than me about these things.... What I was told was that a new production studio had been built with some of the indiefundmekickstarter money that was raised.
So... A real, tangible, standing structure... asset. That will be used to create other things in the future. Yes, including more Trek stuff, probably... But a substantial, real thing that could easily be converted to cash?
I really want to understand why/if this is right or wrong, factually, and if it's something that makes a difference to people that have the "It's OK, as long as they don't make profit" mindset?
I asked this question, and was basically banned from their facebook page for asking. (I think they turned off permission for me to post in the comments)
Disclaimer: I LOVE Prelude to Axanar. I honestly think it should have been licensed, shown in theaters as an add-on "short" to some other Paramount property as a one-time thing, offered on iTunes for $5, and shown with ST Beyond in the theaters.
A couple of Trekkie friends of mine got together a little while back, and we all watched Star Trek: Rebels as the "main event" that night. I said that was ok... but check THIS out! Axanar won the night, hands-down.
I think I'm going to hate Beyond, and would gladly trade the new movie franchise for Axanar-like material on a one-for-one basis, regardless of length.
In theory, if you contact the bulk mail senders, they have to take you off their lists as well, according to a postman I once asked.
Just... chill. This guy has been hated for DECADES. A little internet-tough-guy celebration isn't likely to take physical form, and you know it. Can you deal with it if we hope for daily nookies (hard ones) and wedgies?
Wow. #1563... OK, I believe it when you say over a decade.
Literally a thorn, or just *knowing* he wasn't already in jail/ having paid for his shenanigans? Or actually still causing trouble for you/your users?
I can say, "This." to that!
Not everyone is driven by money. It's simplistic, it's short-sighted, it's hard to believe sometimes... It's also true. An introvert with all basic meeds net will happily stow away a boatload of money if he/she enjoys the other activities they are able to take part in. Add fuel to that if there's any kind of general or social anxiety in play. Getting social interaction through IRC/chat rooms is quite doable for some people. His gaming would absolutely compound that into a balanced (in his mind) life.
(And yes, hell, yes, I'm projecting!
Good point. It reminds me of my mid-90's tech support days... (in the south) "I'm havin' trouble with my email... ENDORA doesn't wanna start to check.."
