And he’s demanded to know why more people aren’t using it—why the app isn’t swiftly dominating the competition.
He doesn't even realize how pointless that demand is. He'll never accept the answer. He'll only accept a lie. Anyone that works for him will that tells him the truth will be fired on the spot. Everyone else that doesn't work for him will be ignored.
“We’re thrilled to become the first and only major ISP to deliver network-wide 2 Gig internet service, as we unleash the power of our fiber network,” said Nick Jeffery, President and CEO of Frontier. “Today is proof that Frontier is doing what customers want and cable can’t–bringing faster speeds and greater value to consumers as we Build Gigabit America.”
So proud, so confident, so mushy, so fake. Kinda makes you wanna throw up, doesn't it?
Mike Parson is a very bad governor who beieves [sic] that his own IT team's very bad coding practices should not be blamed, and instead that he can attack journalists who ethically disclosed the vulnerability as "hackers" rather than take even the slightest bit of responsibility.
This is pure Trump(ism). It's whatever suits him at the moment. A shallow single layer thought process. He can't even think deep enough to realize that he can't have it both ways at once. It's pure luck with zero understanding that he's actually right about one of the ways.
So what happens when your loved one, who had no control over how their health monitor connected and wasn't even aware this was happening, dies because of this? And your garage gets emptied tonight while you're sleeping.

I'd like to think the selfish fit throwing orange man-child has gained some sort of understanding of section 230, but I have a feeling he had absolutely nothing to do with anything remotely related to those protections in the TOS. He probably just ordered some lackey to "make sure I can't be sued" and went "blah blah blah" when they tried to explain that's what section 230 is for.
It would have been absolutely hilarious if he'd gotten 230 repealed and then had every single one of his social projects afterward get dragged through the mud because of it, if only it wasn't for the MASSIVE collateral damage it would have caused to people who actually get how things work.
