Blockbuster Online sends me the same cracked disc twice

I recently signup for Blockbuster Online as they were doing a promotion in store at one of the closing Blockbusters. They would offer me a free DVD in store to signup for their online DVD service. I put DVDs in my query and waited.

Of the 3 DVDs I receive one was cracked which I reported. I return the DVD the next day. A couple of days later the same cracked DVD is ship back to me. Apparently this Lansing shipping center has one copy and they don't even check whats reported online.

I emailed their PR contact as well as the customer service as I have no idea what to do. Report a problem with the disc again and find they ship it to me a third time.

Also another person before has reported the same thing happened to them.

Update: Customer Service responded that they reported the problem. I wrote a note on it so hopefully it doesn't come back to me again.

At&t DSL cap coming May 2 and consumers are pissed

At&t plans to cap customers unlimited internet service to 150GB or 250GB for Uverse members. At&t continues to nickle and dime it's customers to death. And while they claim 2% of customers will be affected, how long before more people will run over the cap due to increasing high bandwidth streaming content like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Gaming, and Youtube. What At&t won't due is lower it's rates, provide the speed that they promise, or provide better service.
