The Penguins twitter feed and general social media isn't great , but this is… umm.. well… Via [ Consumerist.com ]
According to the complaint, when the plaintiff signed up for the text alerts — intended to provide information like player trades, breaking news, and special team-related offers — the agreement on the Penguins website states the team will send a maximum of three texts per week.
However, the plaintiff alleges that in the first week, he received at least five texts from the team. The next week, it was four.
Uhh go on..
By exceeding the authorized limits on weekly text message calls made to Plaintiff… Defendant has caused Plaintiff and the other members of the Class actual harm, not only because they were subjected to the aggravation that necessarily accompanies the invasion of privacy caused by unsolicited text message calls, but also because consumers frequently have to pay their cell phone service providers for the receipt of such wireless calls.
In unrelated news we will be suing the Penguins for having an embarrassing penalty kill.
