Operation Cuckoo to oppose Operation Chokehold

In what sounds like the title of the worst Bruce Willis movie ever, a group of pro-AT&T Facebook users are up in arms about Operation Chokehold.

Let’s start from the beginning. Earlier this week, AT&T’s chief executive of Mobility, Ralph de la Vega stated that he wants iPhone users to limit their data usage. Customers became literally furious with rage and, encouraged by Fake Steve Jobs, vowed to do the polar opposite: simultaneously run the most data-hungry apps on Friday, December 18th. Thus, Operation Chokehold was born. There’s even a Facebook event for it.

Now, some other Facebook users with Stockholm Syndrome have formed a counter-group called Operation Cuckoo. From their manifesto:

“… you don’t urge AT&T to improve its network and terms by attempting to bring it down or violating your contract with the entity. Much the same as you don’t put out a fire with a gasoline shower.”

Yes, Fake Steve’s little stunt is childish and in all likelihood not to be taken seriously (though AT&T is not amused). But if my own iPhone is rendered AT&T-free on Friday because of this bit of nonsense, I’ll be pissed.
