Phormidable Reasons To Change ISP?

Political Penguin
Or how about this. How would you feel if your ISP did a deal with a company whose director has form for creating one of the most repugnant systems of Spyware ever to hit the net and has all their company URL’s from an anonymising provider so that they can’t be traced?

As a TalkTalk customer, I can't help but feel that I might have to pay attention to this. Which annoys me. I've been perfectly happy with the service I've received from them over the last three years, so having to change ISPs would be mightily irksome.

Reddish layers known to be rich in water ice make up the face of a steep slope more than 700 meters (2,300 feet) tall, running the length of the image."

Is it just me that wonders what a desk is doing on Mars, anyway?

Surely we should be looking into this. If there are desks, maybe there are desktop computers. Can we Skype Martians?
