Optonline also refuses, despite constant pleas from numerous customers, to isolate as spam a steady stream of possibly virus-infected chain letters from "eTaiwanNews" and "VistaPrint."

People are not allowed to unsubscribe from these mailings, which came to them unbidden, without their having subscribed to them in the first place. I have long suspected that these two chain mailings, even if you don't open them, contain some serious viral material, possibly Conficker.

And Yes, I've complained to Cablevision dozens of times, They just don't do anything!

This outage - clearly a DDOS attack by hackers - immediately followed an even more potentially dangerous hacking attack at Ameritrade, which they are not yet admitting.

Ameritrade customers CAN still trade and perform other functions on their website.

But from WITHIN the Ameritrade site, almost everyone is subject to a mysterious pop-up about "Advisor Ted" - a facility no one ever heard of before and which I believe is run by Ameritrade "partner" Minyanville, a site which has been rumored to employ a cadre of expert hackers to spy on whoever they feel like spying on.

One has to wonder if the Ameritrade hacking attack spread to various other sites around the country and was somehow exacerbated at Optonline.

Are brokerages spying on - and trading against - their own clients? Read "My Life Versus Mrs. Blankfein's Diamond Earrings" http://wp.me/pVYiX-7

If you find it intriguing, please pass it on to friends who are politicians, regulators, business leaders, or my fellow journalists.

Thank you.

At Linked In's new Centrists group, we believe that building bridges and reaching consensus is not only possible, but essential, in our current political climate. The extremists get the headlines. But most Americans want to work together for results, not stand on the fringes screaming at one another.

If you agree, please consider joining our new group. Provocative and fascinating, but cordial and respectful discussions. No ranters and ravers, script bots, or clandestine political operatives allowed.

Contact me at Linked In for an invitation.

Thank you.

Many of us believe that as extremists at both ends of the political spectrum become more vociferous and divisive, more Americans will move towards the Center.

Provocative, but cordial and respectful, discussions and debate on national and international issues. No Flamers, ranters and ravers, script bots, or clandestine political operatives allowed.

Thank you so much.
