at&t interrupts access to your flickr pic's!

WOW! thank you AT&T!!!!

yeah, maybe you don't need to read the at&t messages below, but talk about BULLSHIT! see i have a flckr account. i used to pay around 40 bucks a year for unlimited monthly downloads and some other crap. yahoo merged with flickr, at&t merged with yahoo (can't remember in what order either.) suddenly i realize that i wasn't paying a subscription anymore. how cool was that?

when the service started out i had mentioned the fact that if i could do small edits to my own pictures i would TOTALLY pay without even thinking about it. that service came out a long time later, but it's still free so WOOT. i'm like this giant happy camper. wonderful.

now, i have issues with my phone company. i got SCREWED on my check last month and i'm having trouble paying my bills. my fault my issue and not the point. point is i can deal with my phone service being interrupted. i can deal with my cable and maybe even my internet. bills need to be paid for services to be rendered. i got it. but don't FUCK with me when i'm trying to log onto my personal SHIT!

when i logged onto flickr just now this is what i got (i know all i have to do is unmerge, but i FREAKED when i saw this. fucking asshole piece of shits!

Go to My Yahoo! page


WOW, where's my fucking flickr??? i don't want to go to the yahoo home page i want my FLICKR PIC'S!

k, i'm in...if i were a just a bit 'tardier than i am already i wouldn't have thought to go back for the 4th time and re-enter the flickr address to try to log back on. this was such a bullshit experience, but it just goes to show you that the minute big businesses get involved with your favorite online hot spots you should run the fuck away.

RUN for your god damned lives because if they can do THAT to you they can do anything they want.

this brings me to the google issue. if google hooks up with "yahoo" and at&t can do this type of crap to you then what in the hell are we going to be able to expect from google?

i was all up for the google maps, google docs, google earth, google your ass... i was SO...SOOOOO looking forward to my free google phone. i've been following that for so long. if google does get together with yahoo then at&t will be ENOURMOUS! how...(and i can't believe i'm saying this) HOW can we let that happen?
