I Paid My Freakin' Cable Bill, Leave Me the #%^ Alone!
Guess what I did yesterday? Yep, I paid my cable bill. Same thing I've done since the start of the ice age. So my question for the cable company is "How many commercials are you going to run telling me to stop stealing cable"? I'm sure all of you cable customers know what I'm talking about.
While I understand that cable theft is an issue, I have a problem with cable companies casting a net to "speak" to the criminals, but at the same time dragging paying customers into the net. I wonder how many cable thiefs having "repented" and straightened up due to Bob Costas scolding them?
Rant done! Carry on.

I know, for example, in Baltimore City, Comcast ENCOURAGED me to steal cable! I called upon moving into my new house, because I still had a signal, and wanted to be legal. They didn't understand my request, and sent out a tech, who proceeded to berate me because he didn't have to do anything. He said "What's the problem, you already have it turned on?". When I finally got rid of them and got Satellite, I found out that they never even turned it off when I cancelled!
I think there may be other issues at hand other than deviant people out there stealing the signals. :)
