AT&T has been in the news quite a bit recently for their humorous attempts at astroturfing their agenda on net neutrality. Techdirt points us to their latest and most humorous endeavour. AT&T releases a letter against net neutrality from a group of senior citizens but forgot to find/replace XYZ corporation.
I’m torn over which is more funny; the fact that they still haven’t figured out how to draft one of these fake letters in support of their agenda in spite of how often they do it or the fact that nobody can confirm the existence of the Arkansas Retired Seniors Coalition.
If you check the archives, you’ll see a letter identical to this in almost every way. The author didn’t even bother to change the names, in an effort to keep his prospective victims from realizing he’s a spamming incompetent via Google.
It seems that she would be too tired to write, what with all the globe hopping:

And his deserved response:
I installed Fedora 9 tonight.
Shortly after, I replaced my Fedora 7 install.
Gone are the days of out of the box successful networking. Where any OS would recognize that you are connected to a network, Fedora now requires you to set up your network, much like Fedora 2. Also, you can now welcome the arrival of the Vista-esque oversized graphical icons and laggy desktop performance.
I think we have witnessed Fedora’s jumping of the shark.
