You are missing my point and I am not advocating ala carte. You said that ESPN and Disney deserved all that money because they were "2 of the top 3" networks in 2010.

And that makes them worth over 10 times as much as the number 1 network in 2010 how?

USA deserves more than the $0.55, too. At least TNT gets $0.99 per sub.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
