Re: Pure speculation.

Not speculation. I am a previous IP Relay operator and I KNOW for a fact that day after day, week after week, month after month, and YEAR AFTER YEAR for SEVEN YEARS, I was one of HUNDREDS of operators that processed these calls, complained about the calls, reported these calls and NOTHING was done by AT&T. We were simply told to PROCESS the call KNOWING we were defrauding people.

You can thank Republican deregulation for this and just about everything else related to big business.
It started in 1981, continued in 1989 and repeated in 2001.

If you think otherwise, your head has been in the sand. of course, if you support all or any of this, you are adding to the problem.
