Yeah, Yeah ... down with Ma' Bell anyways!
Aside from all the legal mumbo-jumbo...
This type of thing is also a violation of at&t's ethical standards of doing buisness!
Every manager is required to review and sign a compliance document on this stuff. I say, corporate lawyers should be looking for who told the FBI how to circumvent 'the process' and not only fire them, but press criminal charges!
This cannot be tolerated! A buisness like at&t is held to a standard... even if it is a standard they wrote up for themselves. Breaking it, is NOT an option!
I know nothing will come of it, but it's yet another reason to keep my communications off at&t's netbroken (because for it to be a network, it has to work...)
Death to Ma' Bell!
