If someone could please define what a Voda Troll is, that would be great.

Cheers.

Troll: An individual who regularly posts specious arguments, flames or personal attacks to a
newsgroup, discussion list, or in email for no other purpose than to
annoy someone or disrupt a discussion. Trolls are recognizable by
the fact that the have no real interest in learning about the topic
at hand - they simply want to utter flame bait. Like the ugly
creatures they are named after, they exhibit no redeeming
characteristics, and as such, they are recognized as a lower form of
life on the net, as in, "Oh, ignore him, he's just a troll."

First you say we are all trolls which is not something we should aspire to, although I have on occasion been accused of being a troll.

Classic example of a troll... all the linux and firefox fanboys out there.

Seeing Brad called me a Troll, could he please kindly explain to me when I regularly posted specious arguments, flames or personal attacks to a newsgroup, discussion list, or in email for no other purpose than to annoy someone or disrupt a discussion?

If anything, i would suggest that Brad was a Troll for suggesting that I was a Troll, but under that theory, i would ttherefore become a Troll because I would be suggesting Brad was a Troll, which in principle, was the sole reason for Brad becoming a Troll in the first place.

So if you didnt get all that, to sum up, either im not a Troll, or Brad and I are both Trolls - take your pic (please no smart comments in return)

Cheers.

FYI, i meant the troll comment as very tongue in cheek, i'm sure most people actually got that. I had just been reading all your promises of a new text deal and new TV ads which have failed to appear, hence a lighthearted troll....

I am highly offended Brad. I like to think of myself as more of a Goblin than a Troll.

A lot of what I said was that either

1 -Vodafone wont extend free text weekends

or

2 - Vodafone will launch a new promo by 1 July

Now I dont know for sure, but in my experience, i would suggest that to be 99% what will actually happen.


As for TV ads, Telecom were quick to re launch $10 text yesterday.... in the past they have pushed out pmros just to get ahead of Vodafone to make it look like Vodafone copied them e.g. The 60 minute hour, so i thought maybe they know what Vodafone is planning and launched their extention early.... i didnt say that there would be ads on tv, i said there may be.

My apologies to Mr TeleGoblin, i'm also starting to wonder where the evil TeleSorcerer fits into the picture now.
