That crackdown is targeting criminally fraudulent calls, like someone pretending to be from the IRS demanding money. He would never interfere with the rights of "legitimate" businesses to extract data or money from their customers.

Why exclude isp's we actually pay isp's
I agree! You've got a very valid point here.

I highly doubt it. Although the goFundMe page has raised quite a bit of money in the 3 days it has been online. https://www.gofundme.com/searchinternethistory

Hi,
I was watching a story on this issue and not even one mention about microsoft and win-10 and all of their privacy selling practices
Possibly they do not use 10 or are intentionally leaving MS out of the same category as this issue :/
Either way it is worse what MS is doing than what isp's do
Thing is if isp's make more money we might all see a drop in pricing
What do we get for win-10 ?
Nothing but the promise of a better win-10 and assurances that MS and their "partners" respect our privacy lol priceless
