I don't hate them--I dislike stupid things done by any business. But, I sure think about changing a lot. One problem though is that the alternatives also do stupid and/or aggravating things. On the whole, I guess I conclude cable is the best of several poor choices.If you hate cable so much, why don't you drop them, or use a different provider?
Where did I type that?
You said, "If you hate cable so much, why don't you drop them, or use a different provider?" Sure sounds to me like you are saying if I continue to use them, I should never complain. To you, complain = go somewhere else. At least it sounds like that is what you said.
Complaining = hate (to you) = "use a different provider."
So, with the same logic, continuing to use the same provider = don't complain.
