OK, this is an e-mail from Cox. The contents are

Now, what does this mean? Anyone else receive this e-mail? Is it being sent to ALL (or most) Cox customers, or just me? If it is being sent to just
me, then are they on to me? Is this a threat? “Take the modem, or lose internet.” Is this because I was going on ATS, infowars, and downloading
Alex Jones (and other) films? And, finally, what will this modem do? Bugging device? Monitor ALL my traffic? And, finally, can secure, proxifyed
traffic be monitored? So, bottom line, am I in trouble?
OR am I just being paranoid? Maybe this is nothing more than a service upgrade. And, last time I checked, posting on forums and USING the net isn’t
a crime. So, is everyone getting this? Any ideas what this means?
