    There is an interesting background to this gag that tends not to be noticed: it was a specific attack on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, especially Tom Ammiano, who this time last year were trying to suggest that a city-owned fiber optic network in sewer lines would be preferable to a private wireless network. It was a pretty hilarious and audacious thing for a company to do, to just mock a regulator it had business in front of.

    Not so fast, the Sewer Line Providers will begin complain of lost revenue from the unauthorized freeriders impinging on sewer capacity.

    Where is the DCMA on this?
