Maybe like dry march etc (or whatever it is the month that everyone
gives up on drinking), that to give up on cable tv for a month and
cancel and ask them to pick up their box etc could be huge.

I agree with the absurdity of your numbers. While they may not be exact,
they are probably
accurate in proportion -- I'm not just talking Myth Users though. If
EVERYONE cancelled for a month..
wow - that would send a message.

But you're right that the amount that "care" is infinitesimal to the
number that just don't know
or don't care.

And that's where it gets disappointing.
