Today we mourn a fallen competitor.
I despise this type of legal bullying. It's one thing if a lone crazy person threatens a frivolous lawsuit; you can either fight those people, pay off their blackmail, or just ignore them. It's another thing if a multibillion dollar corporation with hundreds of lawyers on retainer actually sues you. Now I don't know if Qwest's claim was frivolous or not, but at the end of the day, it's moot.
