I wanted to stop sending money to Florida because that state is telling citizens what dolls they can own, so I discontinued service with Tracfone. I've heard that Tucows supports liberty, so I thought Ting would be better than Tracfone. But I had to buy their sim card, and now I can't find a cheap unlocked phone.
I noticed in Ting's promotional emails that they are giving 1888-PHONE-NUMBER-HERE as their number, which is clearly a mistake. We all use placeholders sometimes. I pointed out the error, but they continue to send out the promotional emails with a wrong phone number.
I see Ting's home page and emails are linking to so-called "social media" websites, including at least two that contain an overwhelming amount of hate and bigotry. They censor love and support hate, yet Ting is giving them free PageRank.
I see Ting is using Disqus for comments. Disqus is well known to be favored by hate websites because they refuse to do anything about calls for violence and death threats.
So I feel like I was wrong to think doing business with Ting would be supporting liberty or that TIng even has a clue about anything. I'm out $5 for a sim card. If you want it, let me know, and I'll send the thing to you.
