Re: How is this even legal?
this puts extra work load on their employees and costs them money.Having handled address lookups back in the days of dialup where there were 100s of connections and disconnections per hour making it a lot more work, I have to call bull****. It wasn't that much work then -- one shell script that made one complicated SQL query. It's absolutely trivial with today's rarely changing DSL and cable dynamic addressing.
I'd love to get $45 per lookup. I'd be f'ing RICH in no time.
(Plus, knowing people are going to be asking, you setup systems to make it quick and easy.)
You've just described the technical end of it. That's the easy part. I suspect the bottleneck at TWC comes from their legal department, which doubtless reviews these requests before allowing their IT folks to release the information.
