WorldCom name change causes web site rechristening
Because WorldCom has announced plans to rename itself MCI, the web site attacking the troubled telco has undergone a similar rebirth. In May 2002 former WorldCom account relations manager Mitch Marcus started www.boycottWorldcom.com, now rechristened www.boycottMCI.com. "This is clearly an attempt to shake off the taint associated with WorldCom’s sordid past," Marcus wrote in a news release, "and a disgrace to the legacy of MCI founder Bill McGowen."
