Hey
Been trying to meet you
Hey
Must be a devil between us
Or whores in my head
Whores at my door
Whores in my bed
But hey
Where
Have you
Been if you go I will surely die
Were chained

Uh said the man to the lady
Uh said the lady to the man she adored
And the whores like a choir
Go uh all night
And mary aint you tired of this
Uh
Is
The
Sound
That the mother makes when the baby breaks
Were chained

Hi. I was looking for the post on DSL and couldn't find it. Sorry, this is off-topic but I thought you might be interested in the latest development.

A DTI Asst. Sec. wrote to me reacting to a column (unrelated issue) and in my response to her I took the opportunity to "bring" certain matters to the attention of the DTI with a "request" for feedback.

If you're interested, here is the link.

Cheers.

Hi Ms. Connie. Made a bunch of posts regarding my recent debacle with PLDT's lousy DSL service. In case you're looking for them, here they are:

My letter to DTI...
Closure...sort of...

No end in sight....
When will it all end?

PLDT myDSL's idiotic policies....

I read your column with interest. Its strange that there are indeed a lot of companies, some even virtual monopolies which resort to underhanded sales tactics and business practices just to fleece consumers of their hard earned money, and yet, hardly anyone is complaining.

I can relate to Family First being quite crude when it comes to marketing their services. Their approaches border on "ambush marketing", misleading you by pretending you have won something or reeling you in on the pretext that you have already won something. Next thing you know, you'll find yourself in line for an unwanted seminar if you're too polite to complain.

Maybe you've heard some complaints about prepaid load expirations as well. I wrote a post on it some time ago ( Cellphone firms pocket unused prepaid credits). Its one of those marketing ploys which artificially increase the need of a prepaid subscriber to purchase credits, when in reality he or she doesn't need to. If you add all those credits up, undoubtedly it could run into the millions.

It's too bad you aren't really interested in politics or being in media. You could probably make a lot of difference particularly along the lines of consumer woes. But knowing how politics and popular media can be corrupting to one's principles whether we realize it or not, its perfectly understandable. Besides, blogging might just be a better venue to tackle these issues.

Good luck with your crusade Ms. Connie. Hope you can make the DTI understand our woes as consumers. :-)

Cheers to you too. :-)
