did that other chick from some tv show who was having problems ever sign in here ?


No, she went back to cable the next day.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I thought she'd be more concerned about becoming a slave again than her Directv service.

(something she talked about last week.)

whatever...

If Whoopi can get just (1) one person better service from DirectV it will all be worth it. I hope DTV's phones are clogged up with people calling to help Whoopi. DTV has not done anything except buy out some install corporations. The need to look real hard at the problems and try to fix the problems. There basic answer is, (OH HERES SOME MORE CREDITS). Yea, right. Fixing the problem with customer service and installs is what should be happening. Perhaps if some of the corporate officiers got fired or replaced things may get better. Because evidently the officiers in place seem to be taking the attitude of just wait and see and do nothing right now. Some head should have rolled by now.

Really, ouch! I can't beive that DirecTV let that happen.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Why not? They probably stuck Jenna with $480 in ETF’s when she called to cancel. As long as they get their money, they could not care less.

The problem is that all too often, handing out some credits works. As long as D* finds that they can buy happiness, that's what they'll continue to do.

You are absolutely correct. This is a plot perpetrated by John McCain, Sarah Palin and their corporate lackeys at Direct TV to subjugate Ms. Goldberg to a life of slavery. :eek2:

She said that she doesn't use her "Whoopi" name as her customer name.

If she's not using it, can I? Surely it can't hurt.

In seriousness if Ms. Goldberg does find this site I'm sure we will help as best we can.

Given the above, perhaps she already has under a different name, and was told by some of the fanboys that it was somehow her fault. ;) :D

The real question is: Would she be famous if she had stuck with Caryn Johnson?

Or how about "True Grit", starring Marion Morrison.
