Talking of "bollocks"
Virgin Media have continued to avoid the question about engaging in prior testing of Phorm on its customer facing network.
I have twice asked Neil Berkett to provide written confirmation that VM have not behaved like BT and tested Phorm on their customer facing network.
My first letter was replied to with a print out of the VM "webwise" page and a handwritten note scribbled on it advising me to look at the page.
I replied with the kind of polite put down such an inappropriate response deserves and repeated my question.
This time the response was from another Customer Contact drone.; It apologised for the unprofessional way the first response was conducted and ignored the question completely by going on to repeat the contents of the press release VM issued to clear up its supposed dealings with Phorm (and which had already been read to me by a contact in Berkett's office previously), saying that Neil would love to have replied to me personally but was too busy to give me the answer I needed. Or some such bollocks like that.
In other words they still haven't answered the damn question.
Why not? What are Virgin Media suddenly so touchy about. Neil Berkett's office were happy to call me when I first started quizzing them about their involvement with Phorm. When I start asking pointed questions about any secret testing they suddenly shut up shop.
COME ON VIRGIN MEDIA! HAVE YOU DONE A BT AND TESTED ILLEGALLY OR NOT? IT'S NOT DIFFICULT - JUST ANSWER YES OR NO!
If they can't provide a clear confirmation that they have never tested Phorm on their customer facing network, the logical reason for so doing must be because they already have.
Which is it Neil?
Virgin Media - giving more bollocls to their punters every day.
