This is a perfect example of why it would be nice to have someone in Congress that actually understood what the internet is well enough to stop companies from just out right bailing on their customers:
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.

And I'd like to add to this that Ma Bell is happy to be back now. And anyone that doesn't see this monopoly coming back into power, just don't talk about in on the phone, you might wind up in some secret prison.
