Re: I want to be contacted asap!!!

I'm going to take CANADA out of what you said... Go to any country and say their country is a "TOILET BOWL COUNTRY" and see what reaction you get. It will not go over well anywhere. Try it in the US... Mexico, or even Britain.
---------------------------

Even Britain!?! Steady on old chap. We don't do that sort of thing over there. We might water down his cup of tea, we may give him a smaller piece of scone with his afternoon tea. We may force him to watch cricket instead of rugby. We might not tell him what happened in last nights Coronation Street if he's *really* obnoxious.

And if that fails, we'll just punch him in the face and go for a pint.

OP, you should be right proud of living here. I know I am.

How was I being nasty?
If people want to beat their chests while Canada has a poor state of telecommunications (both internet and wireless), that's fine. But, complaining and whining about my comments doesn't really accomplish anything.

Unfortunately, neither do your comments.

You may get a refund, credit, or discount and that may all be well with you, but it does f***-all to address the greater issues you have already acknowledged in this thread.

As a neutral outsider (a couple thousand miles outside TSI's service area), I have to say they're doind the best they can with what they have and it's time (and has been for some years now) that users such as yourself take these complaints to the CRTC, as it's not enough for the providers themselves to do so.

I've said this time and again and everyone always jumps on me for defending TSI when I do. You know what? I support TSI for what they do but anyone with any sense also sees that I rip on them when it is due, so let me head that off right here. Yes, I defend them when someone is going out of their way to ignore the facts of the situation; that's nto the case here, Ontarionet has already acknowledged the facts. I'm merely pointing out the most logical course of action.

LOL I'm just surprised my pic is still up there this morning

I was betting it would make a good 20minutes max.

(And yes I do hope that is a true pic of JLP, I just grabbed it from images.google)

What would we do if you didn't reply?!? LOL!

Thanks for the contribution.

Well, the problem is finally solved. Thanks to TSI.

I think there are complaints and venting throughout other posts, though. Anytime Rogers or Bell has influence or control, there will be some.

Does that mean you are upgrading our status from "toilet bowl country" to "bathtub country" now?

Re: I want to be contacted asap!!!

OP, you have some very valid points that were addressed in a very childish manner.

There comes a time in (almost) everyone's life where they realize the benefits of mature and polite behaviour, as well as the benefit of creating and maintaining positive relationships with others.

If you want to make your own life difficult and one day find there is nobody there to help you, you are certainly free to ignore this. I do hope the day never comes for your benefit despite having offended me, my country, and several fine users of this forum who were reacting exactly as anyone would expect... except apparently you.

For those of you who skimmed the thread let me sum it up:

OP:
I need help, which one of you ***** **** ********* hitler loving drunk ***** can handle this?

Replies:
...**** you.

OP:
Why is nobody being productive and sticking on topic? *it is a mystery*

Dude, you're paying for a best effort service, and the terms quite clearly state that they aren't responsible for any loss on your behalf as a result of using the service.

Go ask a lawyer if you don't believe me. Good luck getting a discount though. Unless your service was physically down (hard down not line quality) and you were completely without service for a period, then, MAYBE, they'd be nice and credit you.

Don't be mistaken, no one owes you anything for this.

Sorry to interject my American thoughts in a Canadian forum, but please stop telling the OP to leave your country when mine is his nearest option. We have our own problems right now and don't need any of yours migrating down here, eh.

But yeah, calling your own country a toilet bowl no matter where you live is low class. Especially since you aren't having to worry about being sent to a Siberian prison or having a car battery hooked up to your nipples for voicing said opinion.

I wouldn't go to the USA either.

I'm not sure if Americans or Canadians are paying attention to what is happening to their respective countries.

Going by the replies in the thread to my post, it's evident they're not.

Get your heads out of the sand, dummies. Geez.

You're free to leave North America on the next slow boat to China, where you can have your internet monitored and censored by the government. Call your next country a toilet bowel and you’ll likely find yourself on the receiving end of a swirly!
