When the cable guy leaves your wall in stitches

Have you recently had cable installed in your apartment? Did Verizon or Time Warner Cable leave your walls looking like Frankenstein's forehead? A Brooklynite asks ApartmentTherapy.com readers what to do about the stitches running down the walls of his cable-ravaged studio.  While a few commenters think the offending company (in this case Verizon) should return to redo the job, others offer some solutions ranging from removing the staples and using less offensive ones in less obvious locales, to "channelling" the walls and burying the cable, to hiding the cable under the baseboard.  (ApartmentTherapy.com)
