The decision made by BT to delete all the topics was not their finest PR moment!

Re: BT bans discussions about Phorm

Reading the stuff about the BT forums, they've essentially censored content they don't like.
(Sorry, I should have referred to that as 'not constructive')
I suspect, as usual, a lot of noise is being made on TBB on this. As much as I can't stand that site.
If only they had a forum which was usable, and had moderators which did anything.
Oh Well, better stop dreaming Grin

Re: BT bans discussions about Phorm

Yep I stand corrected but in most communist countries a choice is offered but does not really exist.
And if memory serves, in a lot of the parts of the UK, users are dependent on BT either directly or indirectly, even if thet means only that they are responsible for the link between the exchange and your premises.

Re: BT bans discussions about Phorm

I've heard of the Great Firewall of China that filters out words like Freedom, Democracy, Civil Rights and Barack Obama, but a Great Firewall of B.T. filtering all references to that assumed consent data-rape company?
I guess one could use alias words: Frorm, Phrrrorm, Phirm, Furm. No laws against that. Yet.
If you are on B.T. come on over to PlusNet - just as Plusnet’s new Chairman and C.E.O. recently came over from B.T.
And they wouldn't ever think of harnessing Plusnet to Phorm. Would they?

I certainly hope not as I'd be demanding my MAC PDQ
To be honest, wish I had the financial resources to buy PN off them as its a darn good company with good people and frankly they don't deserve it.

techguy, If you have half a billion BT would sell PlusNet.
