I hate the term "Data Hog." So like, we're called data hogs if we actually USE the services that are out there? Um....oooook. Excuse us for living in the 21st century. :/

Maybe it would be a somewhat ok term to use for those who use hundreds of gigs or terrabytes per month (some do) by downloading and uploading torrents 24/7. But other than that, pfft. As the ol Duke would say, "Blow it out yer ass!"
Web hog! Remember those old PacBell TV ads.? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1fCgca9ZNk for it.

Data Hog, eh?

Nevermind that I PAY for a huge amount of bandwidth (and only receive a tiny fraction of what I'm actually paying for). That's not a problem...but if I want to watch bloody Netflix on my 18Mbps (of which I see like 10%) then I'm a data hog.

Asshattery.

I'd live without TV and telephone before I gave up my internet.

Considering you can get the former using the latter, that's what many people are doing
