Reason 6,571 Why We Dislike Comcast

Dear Comcast,

It strains every fiber of our being to keep to this letter civil. What we’d really like to do is press the caps lock key and spew forth a torrent of obscenities about how much we dislike your high prices, sub-par customer service, and near-monopoly on the Boston cable market.

1204124678But what has us really pissed off this time is the news that you paid people to sit in on the meeting about net neutrality at Harvard University on Monday.

You don’t make it easy on yourselves, do you?

Comcast spokeswoman Jennifer Khoury said that the company paid some people to arrive early and hold places in the queue for local Comcast employees who wanted to attend the hearing.

Some of those placeholders, however, did more than wait in line: They filled many of the seats at the meeting, according to eyewitnesses. As a result, scores of Comcast critics and other members of the public were denied entry because the room filled up well before the beginning of the hearing.

To borrow language from a famous national hearing, have you no sense of decency? Do you really not care that your customers despise you? Why can’t you handle the feedback from your customers? FOR THE EXORBITANT PRICES YOU CHARGE, WE WANT THE ABILITY TO DOWNLOAD LARGE FILES WHENEVER THE HELL WE WANT, YOU BASTARDS.

Sorry. We lost control there for a moment.

All we’re saying is that if we were you, we’d start playing nice. We hear that FiOS package is pretty sweet. You are officially on notice.
