    I haven't logged in for a while and couldn't help but post this poll. I mean seriously, after the Super Bowl fiasco one wouldn't think it possible to "out-do-ones-self". But there they were, the new threads once again started by Leila.

    3/22/2007 at 9:42 PM - new to DTv, shoudl I get HR10 or HR20?

    3/22/2007 at 9:46 PM - how much are my "owned" HR10s worth right now on Ebay?(or anywhere else)

    3/22/2007 at 9:50 PM - One of my four HR10s is still not getting 6.3c... what should I do?

    3/22/2007 at 10:16 PM - can a new DirecTV customer still get HR10-250 from DirecTV?

    I wrote a long time ago that Leila was a computer generated user created to stir things up on the forum.

    I will stay with that for now.

    Works for me, but then it might be a browser cache thing.
    If you want to, just click on Leila's username and select the "Find other posts" option. Or do a search on her username.

    Yeah - I think we had this discussion at least once before, and she probably was scared away, because she hasn't posted in a while.

    Some people by nature are curious.

    Some people by nature like to get other people to do their homework for them.

    Some people just like to start conversations.

    Some people have lots of time on their hands.

    You choose.

    I have long suspected a troll (since about post #2), but tried to always give the benefit of the doubt. "Troll" might even be a little harsh, as I never suspected any sort of nefarious purpose in the posts, even if they did smell a little phony. Even troll posts can sometimes provide a spark for genuine discussion, so that is how I treated the situation, but somewhat warily.

    I think she (he, it) tipped her (his, its) hand pretty good the other day, however. One of the benefits of always telling the truth and never bull*****ting folks is that you don't have to keep track of what you've said previously, which seems to give credence to the concept of "the truth will set you free". Looks like that might have finally caught up to "Leila". The lack of a posted defense seems to coroborate our fears.

    Expect an older-but-wiser "Leila" to surface with a new screen name once the dust settles.

    Leila, we hardly knew ya. RIP, 2006-2007. :)

    I always thought that was a prerequisite for these forums, except that 200 posts seems kind of low based on what I've seen here. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, my search link has expired, as they do after a while.

    If you want to see ALL of her posts, then do a search on her username. :)

    I have to say that after a day like I've had today, this topic was exactly what I needed.

    Thanks for the smiles today! :)

    I think we should all be given her username/password so we can post as her! (that's why she speaks 20 different languages)

    That would assume that DirecTV actually gave a phrack about HDTivo owners.
