    Shame they just did a 'I wuz ere' could have been quite funny to do a spoof site taking the piss out of their throttling, etc.

    I have Comcast, I never once have went to their site. Most people who would use Comcast mail are generally the less than savvy pc users. Pretty wild stuff though. MSN and Hotmail myself.

    i have Comcast as well.. I don't use their webmail, though a coworker of mine uses it ... he was a little concerned at first and sent me out an email about it.. .glad they didn't actually hack their mail servers.

    I have comcast. I'm glad it wasn't harmful to any of the customers but it would have been better if they did something really funny. It would be great if somebody hacked wow and put their guild name in the corner of every user's screen hahaha

    Comcast is strictly a connection for me. Mail is hosted elsewhere and I don't need/use their site. Didn't even know about this until reading it here.

    Cox cable here. I don't use any of the web features they provide, and I can't really remember the last time I went to their site, either :D
