View Full Version : Strange Internet Thingie

I've had various people call from around the country today from different ISPs getting the message, "Your internet access has been restricted" followed by a Juno or Netzero logo.
Has anyone else seen this?

If Skynet is software that was actually first created in 1984, it's still limited by hardware. I think the Netzero/Juno thing was actually the *end stage* of it's 1984ian grand scheme...

Shush, Skynet isn't active yet... but it's learning.

I had NetZero from its first beginnings. I waited for its number base to show up here and signed up when it finally arrived. It was called Net Zero because its premise was touted as internet access should be free for everyone. They promised they would never charge for their dial-up service. Good times were had by all. But by the time I moved to Lawrence, they changed their business plan. Then they needed a small payment to stay in business. But how could people refuse, after all it was reasonable and it was for unlimited access. but after while...... and the noose tightened. I think Juno is Net Zero just using a different name. I was so disgusted with Net (not quite) Zero that I dumped them right away after they first reneged and never had cause to regret it.(they kept a free service but it was, and still is 10 hours a month then it would roll over and charge you good)
Hard times, hard times, they are probably squeezing their loyal customer base again. Or it was a mistake; or its not a mistake but if their customers squeal and abandon them, then they will say it's a mistake. Just my best guess, could be wrong you know. Skynet is always a possibility. :laugh:

I had NetZero when it was still NetMinusOne.
