Lets see. Last month I became dissatisfied with my phone provider. I shopped around, found another provider and made the switch. End of Story! No need to go on a website and post my displeasure with my former phone service along with the pros of my new provider on multible threads.


+1 I have never understood why this is done.

I bought Skippy peanut butter last month, but bought Peter Pan peanut butter a week ago, because Skippy is outdated and wouldn't match the price of Peter Pan.

Why?

Maybe they are posting because they want more info, or want to correct a misstatement or just because they have signed up for this forum and not just some parts of it. :)

Look around. There hasn't been a lot of info gathering or correcting of misstatements. :sure:

In this particular thread, that is true. What started as a simple 'D could not give a good deal to yet another existing customer' thread drifted to what threads like this always seem to. The opposition and fanboys come out to argue yet again.

Of course this could have just as well started in the Dish section with the same result since neither one seem all that interested in retention of existing customers.

I have no problem with someone switching providers. I just don't understand the need some have to post it on multible threads stating the shortcomes of one provider and the strengths of the other.

It's called "cognitive dissonance" and I've seen a lot of it here on all sides of the issues. (it is so prevalent, it might as well be called human nature, instead of the impressive buzz word that is actually used.):)

You really should work on how well you hide that.

Although I suspect the true reasons lie somewhere in your sig line.
Hey, it's OK. I'm a big Android fan, and I take the occasional glancing shot at the i-phonies whenever I can. But it's usually just a glancing shot, and I move on.
You seem to be struggling with that last bit.

At this point I'm wondering if I should see about getting a restraining order. I haven't been stalked so diligently for years. :lol:

Well obviously. Your need to proclaim your switching from DirecTV to the "Dark Side" on "multible" threads over the last two days proves it! :sure:

If you spent a good deal of your time at a website dedicated to discussing phone service you may have done that. :grin:

There is nothing wrong with showing displeasure and voting with your wallet so please be kind to each other and stop discussing the person and discuss the topic.
