Maybe you can hope for a wind storm to take down the pole or someone to crash into it, then they'll surely have to fix

Unfortunately, the lines are being resold by a CLEC.  My understanding is the PUC/PSC doesn't take complaints from 
CLECs and, since the customer is customer of the CLEC, any complaints which are filed go against the CLEC, not Verizon.

Can we all just agree that the whole pole needs to be restrung?
That's horrible!

Agreed, but Verizon and whoever happens to be on that pole are pretty unlikely to do that unless pushed.  The NY Public 
Service Commission might find the state of what's on that pole interesting, particularly with supporting documentation 
(trouble history, pole number/location, etc).

What? That's totally legit. Look! There's even bubble wrap there for 
cushioning! ;-)

For a while we have had a customer with some lines which go down every time it rains.   We put in the trouble 
ticket, a couple of days later Verizon says the issue is resolved...until the next time it rains.

The customer sent us some pictures today of the pole outside their office.   The repair appears to be wrapping some 
plastic bags around something up on the pole.  Here is link to the pictures the customer sent us, in case anyone in 
the mood for a good scare.
