Re: Considering..

said by silbaco:

Most of the people I know who pirated on Mediacom changed their habits after 1 strike. They either stopped pirating or started using a VPN.

So they either stopped or got smart? LOL

Perfect - it'll clearly prove that we need to regulate it...

...and reclassify internet as a utility, coming down hard on the non-competitive, quasi-monopolistic practices of cablecorps, telecom providers etc.

TWC, Verzion, Comcast, AT&T etc - they all itching for a big fuckin spanking, it's about time to give'em hell so let's just kick in the balls this slimebag Genachowski and get him to work for his paycheck...

[BQUOTE=[user=bicker]]Waaaa waaaa waaaa. You just want what you want and don't care to factor in what is right or true. Your perspectives are un-American, and deserve far more ridicule than I'm prepared to pile on them.

Re: Is this some kind of joke?

said by ITALIAN926:

It doesnt matter one bit. My conclusive evidence that ONE CUSTOMER "cut the cord" directly because of pirating proves my statement that piracy erodes profits for the MSO's.

So how much profit erosion am I causing by not paying for cable/satellite service? And do beware of your assumptions.

... nothing to worry about if people follow the laws.

AT&T (and their predecessor, SBC) are not exactly known for accurate billing. If their identification of infringer IP addresses is similar to what my mother went through with SBC billing about eight years back, I'd be foolish to not worry. Following the law is no guaranty that they will be accurate, or correct, in identifying putative infringers.

How about speeding tickets. I get a ticket saying I MUST pay and yet I have even been to court to prove my innocence. The cop is being judge and jury and handing out sentence.

You really don't understand that system, do you. You don't have to pay unless you don't want to contest the allegation of violation. There is no fee to enter a "not guilty" plea before a judge.

Re: Punished by Verizon?

I need to pay Verizon $60 per month to be punished by them? Screw that.

You're not punished if you're not doing anything wrong.

And I have a slightly used, 75+-year-old suspension bridge for sale.
