	IMHO, telephone outfits haven't gotten over the fact they 
aren't in monopoly
	positions anymore and the public hasn't gotten over being 
treated like slaves of
	the monopoly. Sooner or later Joe Sixpack is going to put two 
and two together
	and this sort of behaviour will go the way of the Dodo. 
Meanwhile bitch, moen,
	 and complain at every opportunity with copies to whoemever you think
	may be useful and grind the bastards down.
