AT&T Doesn't Tolerate Dissent

Excerpted from AT&T's Terms of Service:
AT&T may immediately terminate or suspend all or a portion of your Service, any Member ID, electronic mail address, IP address, Universal Resource Locator or domain name used by you, without notice, for conduct that AT&T believes (a) violates the Acceptable Use Policy; (b) constitutes a violation of any law, regulation or tariff (including, without limitation, copyright and intellectual property laws) or a violation of these TOS, or any applicable policies or guidelines, or (c) tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries.
So if you write about AT&T overcharging you, or if Cingular has fucked up your bill like they did mine, or even if you report on AT&T's attempts to end net neutrality, you could lose your service. How very Soviet Union of them...

Emphasis by me.

What does MoveOn.org have to do with AT&T?

Well, you have a link to them on your blog, so obviously you think well of them, correct?
