While that offer is noble, and appreciated, as are your other responses 
on this thread; personally I would be interested to hear more about how 
customers were notified. Was there a collateral piece included in their 
bill? Were they e-mailed?

And are we correct in assuming that this is strictly opt-out? And is the 
report that if you opt out with your account that you are not then able 
to access the service elsewhere correct?

Completely aside from the fact that other services have done something 
similar, I regard all of this as quite troubling, as it seems others 
here do as well.
