    I doubt it was specifically them. They also want my name and E-mail so they can spam me. There's gotta be a better petition site than this.

    They have an Unsubscribe option.

    There isn't.

    Who else could there be, anyway? Petition Online? Change.org? We've seen how ineffectual they are. Free Press isn't just another petition site; they're an advocacy group that actually gets things done.

    They do more than just put your name on a webpage. They also encourage phone calls, mail, and rallies. They've even sued the FCC when they were loosening their grip.

    I signed up for it. There's just no benefit for me or any consumers whatsoever if this merger goes through.

    I signed - just because...
    Tropes that are ruining Western/European Animation (and any animes involving school):
    Spoiler:
    1. Twins and/or Rich Kids as antagonists; Bullies in general. 2. Annoying jerk sibling characters and/or General sibling characters who hate each others' guts. 3. Hidden Caucasian male dominance (usually subverted to be female in anime, which can be equally as bad – and a real turnoff in general!).

    Comcast customers have fun with the company's "customer service" over this news.

    The notion of competition in cable has always struck me as odd considering...well, there's only one cable company where I live so, yeah, no competition. And as weird as it may sound to praise Comcast for something (I really hate their service, 24hour help line my butt) the only reason there's any high speed internet options or competitive phone rates where I live is because of them.

    I don't get what's the big deal about this? Comcast is a much bigger company than Time Warner, the latter is just losing subscribers and money. Both merging together could also means good things...more channels, cool features, more HD channels, wide availability, etc. I don't see nothing wrong with that.

    I've tried to get rid of cable and just keep the internet, but Comcast makes it so that having internet and cable is cheaper than just the internet alone. Fortunately, the neighborhood I moved into is getting Verizon FIOS installed, so I'm hoping they're service is better, but I'll pretty much go with whoever's the cheapest.

    I'm glad I live in an area without Time Warner Cable now. Most of Maine has TWC, and a few areas have Comcast. I have a small company called MetroCast for my phone and internet. Switched the tv portion to Directv. I do feel bad for the people who will get Comcast though. All I know is I never want an internet cap. For the $50 a month I pay for internet I expect to be able to use it as much as I want every day.

    I'm not sure how to feel about this, I live in California and have TWC, but my question is, what is bad about Comcast?
    My signature has nothing to see here.
