Verizon manipulates yet again

Here's part of an email from Verizon re: my DSL service: "The following is an outline of an important change to the Verizon Online Terms of Service, which is effective as of November 30, 2009...As set forth in Paragraph 3 of the Terms of Service, your continued use of the Service after the effective date of this change will constitute your agreement to the change..."

I received this at 11:57am today. ~12 hours after the change took effect. So any automatic process that happened after that had me "accepting" their agreement while I was at work. Is it really "notice" when it comes out after the fact and you can be interpreted as accepting it before you ever even know about it? In fact, my new BOL was waiting for me so I'm all done! As it turns out, the actual change was something I probably could care less about. But this is really a crappy practice!
