    However, I am also sensitive to certain kinds of alleged wrongdoing being mislabeled or characterized. Bernie Madoff was guilty of a "scheme." There are many true schemes that are unlawful. My point is that I doubt that the behavior we're discussing arises to an unlawful scheme and I think it's worth pointing out the distinction between an unlawful scheme and the kind of scheme that people discuss loosely.
    Not being illegal doesn't make something ethical, moral or right. I'm no big fan of Verizon's corporate policies, but I certainly understand their desire to close this loophole that is costing them - and in the long run, costing us all - a lot of money. So shame on the people who took advantage of that loophole, and they're probably the ones most vehemently opposed to it. If they're looking for sympathy now that Verizon has wised up and closed it, they need to look in the dictionary between "sex" and "syphillis".


    I don't take offense to your comments regarding letting criminals into law school. I realize that you're intelligent enought to know that criminal minded people are also members of the police, the medical profession, and the school systems, to name a short list.
    Yes, I am intelligent enough to know that the lowest common denominator takes many forms. Funny that you neglected to include the government in that list.

    No flame-throwers here.

    I am just thrilled to be watching it, instead of being the center of attention.

    Wow. All this ruckus over a $350 ETF that can so easily be avoided by: 1) finishing out your contract as you agreed to when you signed it, or 2) if you already have a contract with VZ just pay full price for your phones from now on and stay in your old contract.

    I am a government attorney who prosecutes civil and criminal wrongdoing. The conduct you describe doesn't sound like a scheme to me. It sounds like some people have been aggressive in pursuing a capitalist opporunity that does not to my knowledge violate VZ's rules. If you mean "scheme" loosely, that's one matter. However, if you mean scheme as a term of art, I disagree with you.
    You are exactly right! VZW put the opportunity out there and those willing to make money by selling a device that they obtained completely legally is by no means wrong!

    If I had BOGO shoes from a dept store and sold the free pair on eBay and made $100 no one would bat an eye. Uhg.
