And this is the reason why the big companies, like AT&T and Comcast, and Disney, and what not, are buying those folks out ... it will not only take out "competition", it will also keep all the money in-house and the issue with "bandwidth" is no longer an issue.

The good one now is will Disney buy Comcast, or Comcast buy Disney in the future? I already see this as a huge battle of the behemoths for supremacy on the airwaves ... but both Comcast and Disney need a serious take down ... their control of things is bad, and the FCC is ignoring it.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now you know what the art is all about!

It was a weird set of circumstances. Admittedly i jumped the gun in pointing the finger but that doesn't mean that my fears won't come to pass. The situation is getting worse and even though this was just a false alarm it has definately upped my paranoia as well as conditioned me to expect the absolute worse at any given moment. In the meantime, i'm just happy to surf the web with impugnity once again LOL
