Fuck them up their greedy scumbag asses!
A little while ago, I received the following email from them: [italic]Dear Valued Verizon Customer,
Verizon participates in a program that helps advertisers provide you with online ads that may be more interesting to you.
What is Verizon's Digital Direct Marketing Program? The program will use information about the area where you live, your Verizon products and services, and your interests and demographics to determine whether you fit into an audience an advertiser is trying to reach.
Verizon won't share any information that identifies you personally with advertisers as part of this program.
What information are we talking about? The program will use: * Your postal address * Certain information about your Verizon products and services (such as broadband and video service features), and * Interests and demographics information provided to us by other companies (such as gender, age range, sports fan, frequent diner, or pet owner)
What does this mean for you? Certain ads you'll see while browsing the Internet may be sent to you based on this information so that these ads may be of more interest. National brands and local businesses will be able to tailor their online offers, coupons, and other incentives to specific audiences.
What are my choices? You will receive ads whether you choose to participate or not. But, under this program, the ads you see may be more relevant to you. If you do not want to participate in this program, please let us know by clicking here. Please note that you will need your User ID and Password to access the opt-out page.

Thank you for choosing Verizon. We look forward to serving you.
Your Verizon Team[/italic]
