    It's obvious that PT30 is just here to cause a disruption and not have a discussion. :thumbsdown:

    I think I got here via a link from the TiVo thread. I'm not sure if it's still there but I know it was at one time.

    I have no proof to offer but I don't really believe that the majority of TiVo owners don't know about this forum.

    Can anyone show me proof that they aren't aware of this forum? No? Then to make a flat out statement that the majority of TiVo owners don't know about this forum cannot be accepted as fact anymore then my statement that the majority of TiVo owners do know about this forum.

    I think a lot of them don't participate or join because of all the negativity in here. Just my opinion, not a fact.

    I also think that some people really got upset to see someone do a positive thread and actually see it stay on the front page for a couple of days. I won't mention any names because it's not necessary.

    And even if this is just a representation of TiVo Forum members, lookl like a lot of happy people to me.

    Nice poll, GoHokies!

    To judge how many may have voted without owning, where can I find that thread?

    How do we know for sure that Comcast is only in new England? I went to the Comcast web site and searched their press releases for 2008, 2007, 2006. Found no mention of roll outs anywhere, not even New England, yet I know that it has been rolled out.

    Your second paragraph makes a good point. Overall, many people are happy with their Tivo's, even though they may complain from time to time.

    I disagree, there are all sorts of people here. It is random. The great care you speak about goes like this. Gallup uses a computer to generate random phone numbers for their 1,000 calls. They do not hand pick their respondents and neither did I. It is random.

    No, I am discussing things just like any other discussion. Just because we do not agree does not mean I am here to disrupt. That is simply a faulty conclusion based on incomplete facts or enough analysis of the facts. The discussion is in progress and your insistence on making statements such as you just did, shows a lack of maturity. Perhaps it is the others that seek to disrupt by a rather suspicious eagerness to discredit the validity of the poll, but you do not see it that way because you are too focused on finding ways to insult me.

    Key key difference is that in the Gallup poll, the average joe doesn't get to say "I would like to answer in this poll" if Gallup doesn't call. This "poll" that you created allows folks to do exactly that - the "self selecting" nature of the "poll" is the problem here. This is basic stuff that I'm quite sure you can understand, which leads to my second premise...

    You're not discussing anything, because you refuse to listen to anyone that you disagree with. Instead you choose to discredit anyone who dares agree with you and lower yourself to personal insults. If you've truly been a reader here for over 4 years, then you would know that I'm constantly painted as a Tivo apologist or fanboy - I love seeing poll results like this, but unlike you I don't try to pass them off as something that they are not.

    Incidentally, your claim that you've been reading for 4 years here just backs up my claim that you're the latest incarnation of HPD. That or we're supposed to believe that you registered and began posting with this rapidity within days of HPDs last post (presumably having been banned) is a complete coincidence. It boggles the mind that you are continued to allow in this manner. :rolleyes:

    That is something I have noticed in my 5 years of reading this forum. At first, things were quite normal here, with hardly any bickering. Just a bunch of happy go lucky people sharing their passion for Tivo.

    Then, in April of 2006, Tivo won the lawsuit against Dish and the injunction stated that Dish had to disable their millions of DVR's. Then it seems like having millions of people who were fearful of losing their free DVR from Dish, caused some of the bitter ones to seek out this message board. Planting all sorts of fake bizarre problems that the majority of Tivo owners have never experienced. This has led to some extreme bickering back and forth and people trying to help people who do not even own Tivo's, with their fake problems.

    This forum is filled with great people who go out of their way to help people with problems but they seem to be getting feed up with some of the ridicules claims of some of these fake posters. There is no doubt that this forum has gone down hill and I believe it is caused by disgruntled Dish owners seeking to take revenge against Tivo with their fake posts. I have become pretty good at spotting the fake ones.

    Now that Dish lost on appeal and is asking the Supreme court to step in, it would seem that there are more people here planting fake problems about Tivo than ever before. It is really starting to spiral out of control. This is not a very pleasant place to come to like it used to be years ago. Lots of bickering. There seems to be a lot of people who are very insistent on stifling anything good said about Tivo.

    Well, lots of people think Oswald didn't shoot Kennedy or at least he didn't act alone. I think that has more of a ring of truth then you're theory to be honest.

    But I do agree about the amount of complaining and bickering (excuse me bicker) that is going on around here.

    I have to wonder though. I know many people lurk before they join but you've been lurking for 5 years and decided to show yourself with this conspiracy theory?

    I'm a second day buyer of the original S3... And other than dealing with comcast regarding cablecards (mostly billing issues) and one harddrive upgrade issue (a major anomoly corrected by a different brand HD), I've had absolutely NO problems, and I would not trade it for anything except a new TiVo box that deals with issues such as Switched Video and PPV/VOD.

    Numerous people have clearly and patiently explained to you why in fact this is very "silly" indeed.

    I am left with the conclusion that you sir are a TROLL and I personally am done with you. I suggest others do the same.

    Carry on, as I'm sure you will, if given the audience.

    I´m beginning to see a statistically significant pattern that the dumber someone is the more they support and appologize for TiVo. :eek:

    I see your pattern is insulting people whenever you get an opportunity. But hey, don't let it bother you. It seems to happen frequently around here. I also see you don't know how to spell apologize.

    Over in the Coffee house there is a thread called "TiVo's Downward Spiral".
    I know your familiar with that since you took a shot at some people over there as well.

    And in case you didn't notice this thread is a poll. Currently it says 209 happy folks, 20 unhappy folks.

    Probably 10 people who created a separate account.

    Perhaps the next thread should be The TiVo Forums Downward Spiral.

    Actually you started the insults over in that other thread and now you´ve trolled along over to this one. "Some people" - you included - took quite a few shots at me over there. I treat you people far better than you treat me.

    In case you didn´t notice my answer in this thread, go read it. ;)

    And do the forum a favor by breaking your pattern of posting assertions when you haven´t a clue what you are talking about.


    P.S. Would you be so kind as to explain the errors in this one sentence from a post of yours yesterday:
    ... and why you capitalized "there" in the middle of a sentence earlier in that same post?

    I keep coming back, hoping for a sign of common sense. I realize it just ain't meant to be. I'm outa here . . . :eek:

    What's that old saying: When arguing with a fool, make sure he's not similarly engaged.

    +1 You'll note that PT30 stopped posting and Princeton Tech registered yesterday. (I did use the "report post" to the moderators, I think if we just did that and stopped responding to this yahoo he'll go away).
