I totally agree with this sentiment. It's very sad what's been done in
the 35 years since the breakup,

I don't entirely understand what you mean by:

Don't you mean "We let" not "we're letting"?

The Bell System is history, broken up, gone. Even the Baby Bells are
largely absorbed or swallowed up by now. The original AT&T is history,
a small unit of SBC d/b/a "AT&T" in attempt to pass off their
incompetency under the reputation of the old company.

I totally hear you, but what is still being done to tarnish the Bell
System name? Nothing being done today is associated with the Bell
System.

If you made the argument they're soiled AT&T's name, that makes more
sense, since SBC is now masquerading as AT&T at least...

Although I'm a bit disappointed the Bell name is not being used much
at all these days, it's also slightly relieving in the way that the
"Bell" moniker will never be equated with the terrible lousy service
provided today.
