Update (Oct 1): Well, didn't this spawn a minor firestorm. A lot of the comments below are interesting. Some are thoughtful, some are not. Some take me to task for things I didn't say, and some take me to task for things I did. I love an interesting discussion. But this update really is to let you know that Crooks and Liars has more on the situation.

AT&T sucks.

Got that? AT&T sucks. And I can say that. Know why? Because I am not using AT&T service. If I did, then I would have to agree to their Terms of Service, which say:

5.1 Suspension/Termination... In addition, AT&T may immediately terminate or suspend all or a portion of your Service, any Member ID, electronic mail address, IP address, Universal Resource Locator or domain name used by you, without notice, for conduct that AT&T believes ... (c) tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries.

So, if I used AT&T, I would not be able to post this blog entry.

You know what? That sucks. Not as much as gleefully acquiescing to give all their customer data over to the Bush Administration in violation of the Constitution, or censoring Pearl Jam, but it sucks nonetheless.

Hat tip to Slashdot.
