    Last year I had a billing issue with DirecTV (they claimed they didn't receive my payment while I had proof that I mailed it). It took awhile to correct the problem but it was handled professionally by DirecTV and resolved in my favor. It's simply a matter of how one reacts to life's little flukes. I did three combat tours in Nam and one in Desert Storm. In both situations people were trying to kill me yet I didn't react a fraction of the way your are behaving over your "isolated" incident with DirecTV. :rolleyes:

    Hearsay is what you hear through the "grapevine" not from someone you know. I saw everything, the tracking # and I was there when he received the bill for the equipment. That's not hearsay buddy.

    I'm sorry that me disagreeing with the 'norm' on here is considered trolling. I refer to it as having my own opinion.

    No since you don't have direct any more why are you still on here acting like you know anything about them when you don't. You asked for a deal they gave you it and then you canceled it because you didnt want it anymore and yet they are the wrong ones right lol pathetic.

    I would hope they would have handled that situation professionally, they are a multi billion dollar company and you are a paying customer. It would be in their best interest to handle it professionally. Of course, this isn't always the case. DirecTV is known to have billing issues which many people who leave them complain of. It's the number 1 complaint regarding DirecTV and they have been hit with several class action lawsuits because of it.

    Hearsay is when you hear it, then say it. "grapevine" isn't in the definition at all.

    I can't recall the content of all of your posts, but it seems like your story has now grown to include you actually being there when he opened the bill.

    Whatever. As soon as I find my MacBook I'm going to make you the first addition to my ignore list.

    I'm simply advising the OP that canceling service would have been the best option.

    No you're just jumping into every thread and finding a way to whine and complain about DIRECTV. The OP was done with this in 5/11 it was brought back up by 1 person not looking at a date and then after about 4 posts it turned into the dubber and debell whining fest like most other threads have in the last week. Here look at your stats:


    • Total Posts: 243
    • Posts Per Day: 29.24
    Now go through and see how many, outside your thread, aren't just you whining about what your thread was about. So now you don't know why people are going to start putting you on ignore? I posted it last night.



    I think it's funny when people like you want DIRECTV more than they wanted you and then you throw a fit when you don't get everything you wanted. The best part is in your case you got something over the top and still chose to cancel because it wasn't perfect. DIRECTV could not care less that you canceled your order. You just became a statistic to them and yet here you are going on and on about them.



    So by all means keep up your whining because I think it's hysterical that you spend so much time on something that will never do anything for you and you seem to think people will care. However don't play surprised when people start treating you like a kid at Thanksgiving dinner where after awhile placating you gets old and now they just go on with ignoring.

    Just to clarify, I canceled because I didn't feel right about the sales rep lying to get me the deal I wanted, not because it wasn't perfect. I got everything I wanted, I just didn't feel right about how I got it.

    I'm sorry that some are putting me on their ignore list. I simply want to participate in the forums just like everyone else. I have said positive things and negative things about DirecTV which is what I thought discussion boards were all about, the good and the bad. I'm not here to whine about anything, I'm just sharing an experience and other experiences with this company.

    Relax man, it's just a message board! :lol:

    You would think that since this IS an open forum, not run by D* or funded by them that members would be open to hearing all sides of a company's operation. The good, the bad, and the ugly, which it seems many here are in denial about so much so that they have to resort to the ignore button.

    You're not seriously suggesting that the members here or the mods are paid by directv are you? That's ludicrous. You're really reaching here.. Amazingly terrible.

    No, I didn't see it like that at all. He simply mentioned that since this is an open forum and it's NOT funded by DTV that people can post the good, the bad and the ugly. If that's not the case, than so be it.

    After the last few days, I'd guess more and more members have decided to not "fall for the bait", and merely let these posts/poster fade into the background.

    VOS....

    I respect your opinion but I don't consider my relating my very bad experiences with D* as bait. Unfortunately there are others here that seem to take unflattering comments about D* as a personal insult...which is strange.

    No. What's strange is that you keep repeating it OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.. like a broken Yoko Ono record.
