and then there was DoV
There were Data channels and Voice channels, with Data channels costing more than Voice, so there was a trick to force the Data call to happen over the Voice circuits and reduce cost (sure it went a little slower but...)

So a Gun manufacturer can argue that they only make the gun, not pull the trigger.
A car manufacturer can make a vehicle, not drive it and kill/maim people.
But a piece of software can be pulled because some people choose to use it in a specific (allegedly unlawful) manner?????

The problem goes deeper than Facebook's obvious DNS failures, though. Facebook-owned Instagram was also down, and its DNS services -- which are hosted on Amazon rather than being internal to Facebook's own network -- were functional. Instagram and WhatsApp were reachable but showed HTTP 503 (no server is available for the request) failures instead, an indication that while DNS worked and the services' load balancers were reachable, the application servers that should be feeding the load balancers were not. A bit later, Cloudflare VP Dane Knecht reported that all BGP routes for Facebook had been pulled. With no BGP routes into Facebook's network, Facebook's own DNS servers would be unreachable -- as would the missing application servers for Facebook-owned Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus VR.
That an organisation that talks about freedom of choice is now being pilloried because they have exercised such freedom...
RMS has a right to be a d**k, we have a right to think he is a d**k (or not) just because your offended doesn't mean you are right...
Now where is my coat, and get off my lawn...
The differences are vanishingly small, so they equate very closely to fraud.
But they are there, one of the key differences being if there is more effort put in building than retailing then you are probably not in a 'real' MLM but a pyramid masquerading as one.
An argument can be made that shows Tesco's is a pyramid scheme.
This was originally a plan for 7 diffferent large redundant networks (14 POI plan) but the ACCC stuck its nose in and dictated a 121 POI plan (no redundancy).
This will NOT be an NBN until traffic can get from Perth to Sydney without leaving the NBN network.
Right now its 121 RBNs.
Not to mention the email I received earlier this week telling me that voicemail services will be turned off for skype-skype calls... You know a phone call is a phone call is a phone call.... I wonder if I can get phone number portability on my Skype-in number (as it is listed as my primary contact for business).
