daveywest (937112) writes "Looks like the problems with Comcast are confined to packet shaping. The Salt Lake Deseret News is reporting that 3 contractors working for Comcast were either fined or arrested for a recreational game of Kick the Cat while on the job.
From the article: "While they were working, a kitten came into their area. Three workers began abusing the cat by kicking and spray painting it, said West Valley police Capt. Tom McLachlan. A passer-by saw what was happening and called police."
To be fair, Comcast says they "will take appropriate action" after the storm blows over. Personally, I don't think this is a gray area, but Comcast tends to look at the world differently than I do." top
