Class Action to Charge MS for the Download Fees & Nuke Updates

A class action to charge MS for the download fees/time would stop them. Ultimately, that ought to cost MS many billions.

Pushed downloads STEAL your internet fees (especially on wireless connections which I use)! Getting governments to change laws so pushed downloads are specifically illegal without specific user-initiated consent would also help. If we steal MS code the shit hits the fan.

If MS steals our internet time zilch happens. Now who's fault is that? Us of course, as we've done fuck-all about it for years.

Personally, I've solve the problem completely by not allowing Microsoft Update with 50 feet of any of my PCs. I've never even seen an MS notice/request re Win 10. Now, isn't that wonderful?
