:lol: Geeh, maybe because it's not allowed.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

erix you can't be serious. I didn't think there was a person alive in Canada that didn't know subbing to Dish or DIRECTV is illegal.

Canada has sold out its entire broadcasting system to Robellus. They call the shots and they don't like competition that makes the Canadian product look like the crap it is.

I can't think of a good reason to keep this thread open. Closing.
