Wow. Just, wow. There you have it: AT&T is going to continue being absolute a**hats for the foreseeable future, because their stockholders overwhelmingly believe it's good for business to be evil to paying customers who have been with them for decades.engadget said:AT&T stockholders vote down net neutrality proposal

AT&T stockholders took to the ballot box today at their annual meeting and voted not only to reelect the entire board of directors, but also on a number of measures concerning how the company should conduct business. Chief amongst them was a provision that would have required the carrier to operate its network according to the tenets of net neutrality. Unfortunately for you (unless you're an AT&T exec), the proposal was voted down by a pretty stunning margin. 94.1 percent of shareholders opposed, with only 5.9 casting their voice in favor of true network neutrality.

Makes me glad I don't have AT&T. I feel bad for anyone who's forced to stick with such an evil organization as their carrier, and have zero pity for anyone who willingly sticks with them.
