i just saw a commercial for www.cabletheft.com, a site where you can anonymously report a neighbor who is suspected of stealing cable. the "facts" section on the site states, "Cable piracy affects the picture quality of the entire system by weakening the signal. Poor picture quality increases service calls and other system maintenance, raising costs and putting pressure on cable rates." does it really affect it THAT much? the whole site seems kinda made up, since there isnt any proof to support anything that is said.
my analogy to their statement:
my neighbor illegally downloading music makes my CDs sound distorted.
i mean i suppose that stealing cable could weaken the signal to the legit payers, but is it so bad as the site suggests?
and who's paying for this site anyways? is it the government? or the cable companies? it just looks like a bogus site
