So some upset customer e-mailed AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, and lickety-split got a response from AT&T’s legal department. Apparently e-mailing the CEO is an actionable offence, even though as a customer of AT&T you help pay the asshole’s salary. Apparently also the CEO is as inept with his e-mail as he is with a telephone network, because the official response was to threaten the customer who e-mailed him with a Cease & Desist letter.

According to Wikipedia (yes, I do research, shut up):

A cease-and-desist letter is a letter demanding that the recipient refrain from a certain behavior or face legal action. Some types of behaviors that may prompt such letters include:[citation needed]

Can somebody explain to me or Randall exactly which of these things “sending an e-mail to a company you’re a customer of to politely tell them you’ve lost them as a customer” falls under? As it stands, this whole non-story is like me threatening to sue you for smiling at me when I’m in a bad mode. It’s idiotic.

    OTOH, I’ve framed my restraining order in goldleaf. Perhaps Ishouldn’t have TP’d and egged his house and car?
