freitasm: Not censored. Enforced our rules. No name calling, no personal attacks.

It's amazing how threads can escalate so quickly from a seemingly reasonable question asked, to reasonable answers given to the reasons why things are what they are. To conspiracy theories called and spiraling downwards.

If I were the OP I would pull my head in and say "thank you for explaining how the cabinetisation project was delivered by Telecom back in the day in NZ" This giving a very high number of people in NZ access to VDSL services should they so choose to take it up.

It's just like Outram all over again but hasn't (yet) hit 41 pages. But this time the OP actually is connected to an ISAM and not a congested ASAM or Conklin.

Actually the real problem is that some people, (see how I avoided directly offending anyone) who frequent these forums, do so, not to help others, but to point out what they see as the failings of their very real request. You see, I spoke directly to what I felt was a rude comment, and got told off, you tell me to pull my head in, by not actually directing the comment at me (very clever) and you get little pluses from the cheering squad, see I can learn. As I said earlier, it's been great therapy.

You were not told off. I removed one of your posts (and a few other snarky ones from other users that did not contribute at all) but I did not say whose post I had removed.

You are the one who ratted yourself out.

People have told you the reality, gave advice, etc. You have been posting as if some of these people were responsible for your predicament. They are not resposible and you can't expect people on an Internet forum to do more than offer [FREE] advice. Anything else is up to you to seek from your provider, Commerce Commission or MP.

I am locking this thread because it is going nowhere.
