Aside from this shit, check out this shit if you TERMBO it:
We have 4 computers that access the internet at my house and yesterday EVERY computer had a notice that would come up in place of what ever page we were trying to access through a browser. This page stated that we have violated Time Warner's policy of sharing copyright material via peer-to-peer networks and that we must remove all copyright material and peer-to-peer programs on our computers, then call a number (with a local area code) and talk to some rep and have our internet restored.
The address it would redirect us to is: http://subscribermgmt.rr.com
This appears to be a legit roadrunner sub-domain. The page you might see when you click that link is not not the page we see at our house. The information is different and explains that we have had 3 strikes. They state that they have been notified several times that we are sharing copyright material.
Has anyone seen this before on their machines? I can't believe that this might actually be a real notice from Time Warner. It doesn't make any sense that Time Warner might now be checking for things like this. They just want our money and if they are implementing this into their policy they will begin to lose a lot of customers, don't you think?
After much research:
It turns out this is REAL! REAL TALK! REAL SHIT! REAL DEAL!
1st strike is an email to your rr account that nobody uses.
2nd strike is the same screen with a link that acknowledges that you're aware of the notice.
3rd strike is the same screen without the link, requiring you to call to get your internet turned back on.
one of my roomates must have ignored the second notice and clicked the link.
WHAT A SHITTY ASS COMPANY!!!!! FUCK THEM!
