Nu?

Shabbat Shmooze ~ Chickening out? Nah, just temporarily tuckered...

I'm feeling terribly overwhelmed by life right now ~ so please forgive me if I haven't touched base with you on the many and various avenues of Eppiliciousness we are immersed within.

New AT&T terms of service: We'll cut off your Internet connection for criticizing us

http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/boingboing/iBag/~3/162971631/new-att-terms-of-ser.html

AT&T has brought down new Terms of Service for its network customers.

From now on, AT&T can terminate your connection for conduct that "tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries."

So AT&T customers aren't allowed to write/podcast/vlog critical things about AT&T, its billing-practices, or its cooperation with illegal NSA wiretapping, on pain of having their connections disconnected.
