Carbonite Drops Limbaugh

Fantastic news. Another Limbaugh advertiser bails out. The statement from CEO David Friend:

“No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”

This is great for a variety of reasons, and I'm relieved personally because I have literally millions of files backed up with Carbonite. Moving everything would have taken months.
