    Land o fruits and nuts, and more crime.
    Hope he wins.

    I have AT&T (No Direct TV) for just a "true" land line phone service since they are the only land-line in CA. I would dump them in a heart beat, if there was a choice.
    The bigger they get the more shady they become.

    Some what off-topic.

    Hard to imagine a user would secure 1.9 million of Crypto by the obsolete security of SMS. 1.9 million and not using a 50-150 dollar hardware wallet? Quite a painful learning lesson.
