They string up the 'intern' who posted it against the discretion of the company to wipe another boss' ass with a half-hearted apology with no repercussions to the damage done to it's customers.

Don't forget the CEO bonus, after he ousts the mischief maker.

Netflix account is shared by family who live in different places so yeah, it messes up the video streaming services we depended on. Another friend cancelled his subscription. Any other questions Netflix employee?

>Netflix account is shared by family who live in different places so yeah

So .. you admit you violated their TOS.

4.2. The Netflix service and any content accessed through our service are for your personal and non-commercial use only and may not be shared with individuals beyond your household unless otherwise allowed by your subscription plan.

So.. I guess... they didn't "damage you." Your family is just cheap. Which is fine, I get hit by the same thing, but I'm not whining like it's somehow my fault I'm using my parents login like some entitled brat.

It is a family plan idiot. The requirement to login to a specific location is what's wrong. Go back for more employee training and maybe you can offer better customer service instead of wasting time fondling your assets.

Calling me an idiot and assuming I'm an employee doesn't lend any credence to you not acting like a brat here.

Whatever its called, it's right there in black and white what is allowed and isn't allowed.

You can keep being mad at me if it makes you feel better, but I didn't make the rules you're breaking.
