Re: AT&T Doesn't Like My Last Name

The "new" AT&T (formerly SBC, my local phone company) sent me a form

A friend of mine recently got the same letter. In his case, however, it seems that AT&T objected to the sequence "mci" in his username. Apparently, they consider that obscene, also.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: My God, that would eliminate everyone whose last name is McIntosh, McIntry, and similar. Just IMO, I think AT&T needs to have a _good, efective_ class action suit brought against them. Of course, they have needed that for a long time anyway. They no sooner bought out SBC (or was it the other way around?) that the huge amount of SBC spam mail (letters saying how much I was missed and how they would now give it all away for free to me for a few months until they could get me to start accepting their lies and B.S. again) switched from SBC letterhead to 'we are the new AT&T' letterhead'. They probably used up all their old letterhead from SBC then started using AT&T. PAT]
