  1. Morons deserve what they get then. What more do they want? They’ve had OVER a calendar year even on February 17th. If they’re going to continue to procrastinate, I won’t listen to their complaining.

  2. I’m not sure that calling people morons is the correct way to term many of those who are not ready for the changeover. Consider the elderly who have to choose between buying a box and paying their bills. Consider those who are not tech savvy and don’t have someone to install the device. Again, they may not have the money to pay someone to do the install. Consider those who simply don’t understand what all this means, either because of their lack of understanding the terminology or simply because they don’t understand the implications. These are but a few of many legitimate reasons. So to make a blanket statement without these and other considerations says that you should be included in the class of moronic complainers.
