As the listowner, I would like to make a few suggestions. First, it
is often considered appropriate for persons who post to the list to
identify themselves, and often this includes some information about their
employer, so that the reader will be additional context in evaluation the
statements that people make.
Second, I haven't read all the messages on this thread yet, and I
have apparently missed some of the exchanges between fred and
email@example.com. But I would urge silkmon to hold off on sending
messages to Fred's employers, to see if it is possible to work things
would more amicably.
I would agree with Silkmon (might be a good idea to identify yourself
for the group) that the RBOCs may take a dim view of efforts to make data
calls under the voice tariffs, and that there may indeed be consequences
from discussing such matters on this list. I also know this is sometimes
done, in the Bell Atlantic and Nynex states, largely because of the very
high (and somewhat unrealistic) charges on data calls.
