More Censorship from the DeathStar

DSL Reports: AT&T Censors Customers' Negative Opinions

It is in the fine print of your (ever changing) Terms of Service from bellsouth /att:

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 (a) violates the Acceptable Use Policy; (b) constitutes a violation of any law, regulation or tariff (including, without limitation, copyright and intellectual property laws) or a violation of these TOS, or any applicable policies or guidelines, or (c) tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries.

Ma Bell has been on a tear lately wiping its ass with the US Constitution.

Om Malik says that VZ has similar terms. Nice. ... If they shut me off, does that mean I can stop getting all those direct mail and call center pitches?

FreePress has a release about VZ censorship here.
