Did you read all 1700+ comments?  I tried to get an idea of when this conversation took place... but lost interest at around day 10.   Grin

Oh god no!

I just looked as I listened, then picked out a few at random. There are probably much worse there. I only scanned a few.

Would you have some idea when this conversation took place?  I don't think it's genuine.  Who's to say Mr. Block didn't stage the whole thing?
Could have been a cohort on the Comcast end of the conversation.   Grin   At least it's in the correct DC thread.

The Comcast customer service disconnection call that went viral:

https://soundcloud.com/ry...lock-10/comcastic-service

Comcast responds: "He did what we trained him to do"

http://www.pcworld.com/ar...we-trained-him-to-do.html

 ohmy

Some of the SC comments:

Quote
* I created a petition post to arrest that monster, Ryan Block. Please sign, if you have a brain.

* Ryan Block, You are a FAGGOT for doing this! I hope you FUCKING DIE for this you fucking faggot how fucking dare you record this and traumatize this poor man you sir need to be shot fuck you and fuck the company you work for.

* People supporting this customer are stupid idiots. The fact is that this customer was being a dickhead. He wasn't answering the questions and was purposely giving this rep a very hard time. Shame on you people.

* I don't understand why these stupid people are cussing out on the customer service representative and supporting this fucking asshole customer for trying to disconnect. In my honest opinion, he has been a loyal customer for NINE FUCKING YEARS, which is CLOSE TO A DECADE! So he is making a STUPID FUCKING DECISION to cancel. Well anyways, fine. He wants to cancel, I’ve canceled Comcast before because I personally think it sucks, but this customer is being a FUCKING ASSHOLE. He is NOT being coherent at all and is purposely dicking around saying “that’s none of your business” and “I don’t want something that works”. Surely, anyone should be ANGRY and this fucking dumbass for having such a shitty attitude. Stop supporting this dumbfuck, plus he recorded it and put it on the internet for people to listen to, this just shows how much of a dumbass he really is.

What? Sounds like some shilling for Crapcast.

Just. Wow.

IMO: This site needs to switch (back?) to pages instead of their *load-as-you-scroll* crap.

Not sure what Comcast's answered questions would accomplish anyway.  Their service is probably the same as it never was.

I'm probably way off base here, but when I saw AVAST's rather lame explanation was offered by someone named Alfred E. Newman, I wondered whether it was a joke of some sort, remembering that the mascot of MAD magazine was Alfred E. Neuman.

The persons name was Richard something.  The rest is actual.

Like most Tech Support I contact... Avast had two people address my issues.  Both sent me answers to questions I did not ask and skipped over the vulnerability.

After I stated that "NO answer is the same as YES" I got the swamp gas.   Grin

================

I have gotten a strait answer only 1 time from a tech-support person.  Over the phone with McAfee.  I think I caught her off-guard.   Cool

*Follow-up*

This is Avast's swamp gas explaination concerning a vulnerability.

Hello,
Thank you for contacting AVAST Software company with your concerns.

the fact that your avast was turned off may be caused by some power outage or other problems not related to a vulnerability issue...

If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to contact me again.

Best Regards


Alfred E. Newman
avast! Technical Support Specialist

Power outage?  Other problems?  Wouldn't these indicate vulnerability?   huh

Ignoring the idea of copyright and not being compensated by people that are making money off his work for a minute, there is another issue that exists here...that's HIS face...not a doodle, a paint splotch, a pic of a flower or a dog...his face.

How would you feel if one of the photos of yourself or your family, that you uploaded somewhere to share with friends and family, suddenly ended up everywhere...printed on t-shirts, skateboards, book covers, magazines, etc. and you have no control over the context in which it is used? How about if someone was using your face on a dating site profile, claiming it is a pic of themselves? How about using it in some sort of context you would object to on moral grounds? If you are pro-choice, a photo of your baby being used in anti-abortion propaganda? How about your face appearing in an ad for a Herpes medication, in a way that would imply you have Herpes?

How would this make you feel?

FWIW:  Amazon has a wide office chair that's relatively cheap:  http://www.amazon.com/OIF...+duty+office+chair+400+lb
[attachimg=#]
•Height adjustable arms for optimal arm placement.
•Arms adjust for optimal placement or may be removed to suit your needs.
•Thickly cushioned seat and back provide complete support.
•Classic styling specifically designed for the big and tall person--supports up to 450 lbs.

Should be mostly metal construction.   smiley

does anyone know if there is such a thing as a high quality chair meant for people who tend to site cross-legged (ie sit with their feet up on the seat of the chair).  and if not, maybe it would be a good invention..

There appears to be a cross-legged type of chair here,  http://www.prnewswire.com...ve-posture-257659961.html, though it doesn't seem to be in production.

The last half of this video: https://www.kickstarter.c...ting-cr?ref=home_location shows how it works.

@dr_andus

FWIW: I'm no security expert either.  However... having Java pre-installed on my machine brought me this pain in the ass and I have since uninstalled Java.

Even the US Government warned about Java's vulnerabilities and no longer uses it.

Guess I missed their email.   Grin
