You throw the fact you have a disability around a lot on here and on another forum.

But anyway i'm glad you finally got your VM issue sorted hopefully now you can enjoy the services you are paying for, you should still seek a refund though for the time you was without such services.
Once again, accusations without any proof. "Throwing my disability around"? Do you mean when I answer perfectly reasonable questions relating to it or where It's mentioned where relevant?

It was announced earlier this year that Ofcom are to take over regulation of the internet in the UK:

'Ofcom will be put in charge of regulating the internet, the government has announced, with executives at internet firms potentially facing substantial fines or even prison sentences if they fail to protect users from “harmful and illegal content” online.'

Thank you for the kind words in your last paragraph, everything is getting back to normal now and Spiderplant has been extremely helpful to me behind the scenes, which I thank him for. If more members were as kind, non discriminatory & helpful as SP, this forum would be a much better place.

You stated my post was meaningless drivel. How is that being kind? I've also had problems with you in the past of accusing me of laughing at your disability which categorically didn't happen.

Yes you did and this was resolved by Mick in the summer of 2018. Don't you think it's time to grow up, move on and stop stirring things up as Mick has requested? You do realise that deleted posts aren't actually deleted at all and are simply hidden from public view so the evidence still exists.

I wondered why you hadn't posted for a month and then started repeatedly trolling this thread.

I'm pointing out evidence of you bringing your disability into things that aren't there. I can categorically state I did not laugh at your disability. There is no evidence as it didn't happen. You wouldn't show me then and you won't now. Though as then, if you have evidence, then I would love to see it and as I said back in 2018, I would apologise. The reason I state that is I'm 100% that I didn't laugh at your disability.

If you want treating with respect, you first need to give it. I don't need to grow up nor am I trolling the thread, I'm replying to your posts. I posted evidence which you asked for and shown how these posts always go. I still don't understand why you are with VM if you get such appalling service with them. Well I can guess.

You were given advice which you choose to ignore, what do you expect people to think?

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/automatic-compensation

Quote:
On 25th March 2020, we paused our automatic compensation scheme because of Covid-19. The good news is it’ll be back from 1st June 2020.

This means we’ll be paying credits according to the scheme for:

An unresolved total loss of home phone or broadband service reported on or after 1st June 2020
A delayed activation (installation) of home phone or broadband service with an original scheduled date on or after 1st June 2020
A missed technician appointment for home phone or broadband service booked on or after 1st June 2020
We’ll also continue to adhere to all government guidance to make sure we’re keeping our people and customers safe at all times. Please note that there are two circumstances where credits won’t be paid under the scheme based on safety concerns related to Covid-19:

If we can’t attend a customer’s home because they’re self-isolating or shielding
If a technician can’t attend an appointment because they’re required to self-isolate and a replacement technician can’t be arranged at short notice

Also tried to include Sky Movies for £20pm which I declined, reduced it to £10pm which I still declined so they included it for free for 6 months after which I'm free to cancel.
So still paying £98pm!!
