"Even assuming 20,000 phones were registered under joke names, and with 61,875,000+ phones registered with TelCel alone, that is only 0.03 percent -- much less if you factor in the other companies."
The point isn't how many did it, but that it can be done. Easily.
"It's about the number of wise-acres you'd find in any society, and there's nothing "typically Mexican" about it."
Sure, but these wise guys registered them in the name of Carlos Slim himself! That's fucking hilarious. If you don't think that is typically Mexican than we hang out with different Mexicans I guess.
"You'd expect a certain amount of spin about ANYTHING done by ANY government ANYWHERE on the planet. But a hardship? Why do WE have to do it? Uh... because "we" live here and them's the rules."
I never said anything about it being unfair or something to have to register. My point is that it's clearly a flawed system. It appears that they plan to us the CURP for any and all business with the government. Not very comforting. Do you think it's a good idea to have your Social Security number out on the internet for anybody to see?
