[ale] ATT email about some RIAA stuff

You?ll probably get a deal from Comcast if you call and tell them you?re thinking of moving from AT&T.

I use Comcast internet and really don?t have many problems with it.   Personally I try to give as little money to Awful Telegraph & Telephone as possible.  I didn?t like them when they were monopoly up through the 80s and now they?re re-assembling like Terminator 2 there?s been little reason to like them any more than I did then.   Any company that has to force you to sign a 2 year agreement to keep you from leaving them clearly knows that new customers are apt to leave them in a hurry once they actually experience their service otherwise.

They were one of the first companies to illegally turn over phone data to W and his cronies when others like Quest were telling them to jump up a stump.   Of course Congress has since retroactively legalized it and people are now acting surprised that the NSA under Obama is still doing it.

Is it possible that one of your neighbors is using your wifi?

Finally ATT went ahead and blocked my internet today as mentioned in the email.  It is a legit mail from ATT and I dont get access to anything other than their "Take the tutorial" site.
I don't know why but I am getting upset at the fact that I have to take the tutorial.  I feel that I am being coerced into something that I don't want to do.  I feel that this is some kind of admission of guilt and I dont want to do it.
I am seriously thinking of moving to my other provider "comcast" which is in no way better than what I have right now.

I need suggestions, should I bite the bullet and take the tutorial ?
Thank you in advance for your time and attention.
