When we checked our server logs on December 5, the eighth most-read post of the year on this blog was OUTRAGE: Sprint said to cancel nearly 200 military accounts for "excessive roaming."

Of all the posts I made in 2007, this is the one I am most proud of. Apparently SprintNextel had decided that excessive roaming is so disruptive that customers who do this too often might should have their accounts terminated. The only thing is, soldiers roam. That's part of their job description, you know?

After we and some other blogs shone the light on this stupid policy, Sprint recanted- at least for military members. Yet a few months later, justice prevailed and Gary Forsee, the feckless CEO then at the head of this train wreck of a company ran for the door.
