Consumerist Forums Roundup

We have a magical, albeit, unofficial, place for our readers called The Consumerist Forums where they can start stories, post messages, connect, and frolic. Here’s a roundup of some of what they’re talking about.

A good user review of Joost, the new free P2P streaming TV-video software.

• Which companies had personal data breaches, and when.

• A tale of Verizon Wireless being nice!

A tongue-in-cheek explainer of governmental safety placards (of the “make sure you have enough duct tape in your bomb shelter” variety)

• Coffee and a metal chip muffin, please!
