Don't worry, WE know what's best for you.

Verizon Rejects Text Messages From Abortion Rights Group


Saying it had the right to block "controversial or unsavory" text messages, Verizon Wireless has rejected a request from Naral Pro-Choice America, the abortion rights group, to make Verizon's mobile network available for a text-message program.

The other leading wireless carriers have accepted the program, which allows people to sign up for text messages from Naral by sending a message to a five-digit number known as a short code.

Text messaging is a growing political tool in the United States and a dominant one abroad, and such sign-up programs are used by many political candidates and advocacy groups to send updates to supporters.

Get that. THEY know what you should have/want, and they don't give a big patooey if you sign up for it, you're just plain not going to get it, nuh uh, not on their service.

I've been putting off checking into Working Assets, but it looks like today is the day I get to tell Verizon what I think about this crap and the retroactive immunity they want for spying on me.

It is silly if it really is something you sign up for. Last thing I want though is spam messages for anything.
