dear tfa - did you do that deliberately?

i don't like screwber, from what i've seen of them.

what is it i am not understanding about current methods that is preventing us from taking control of our own rides?

Submission + - full details of eastlink internet leak

rewindustry writes: EASTLINK internet have exposed, and are deliberately continuing to expose, the majority of their customers, including those on COAST CABLE and DELTA CABLE, to malicious exploit.

i've tried all the proper channels — the crtc say it's not their problem, and the office of the privacy commissioner did not even bother to reply.

the full details are here, and i have unlocked the rest of my articles on this topic, in case anyone cares.
