Boy was that video a let down :-\
Quote by Bubonic Chronic
With boys it's like "here's an incredibly complex sport to learn with sophisticated rules and various interdependent roles to play in a social unit."

For girls it's like "here's Barbie...you're fat!"

hmmmm are websites able to block their traffic from ISPs if so convince heaps of website owners to block virgin from accessing their sites and when the virgin users can get all the sites they want they will switch and virgin will die in a hole WIN

if this happens, what will end up happening is that they will lose all of their subscribers to ISPs that don't do this.

Honestly that's all I thought of when I was watching the video.

I had no sound on, but you know... I'm sure it was interesting.

The guy on the right (known as "Athene") is a freaking WoW legend heh. Lot's of people think he's an idiot but he's not actually, he's quite popular so he puts that to good use by making a video like this. He already did this once because youtube kept deleting his videos...

But anyway I hope virgin media won't do this :/

Yeah, I know we pay for all the sports channels, but you still can't get sky sports news or sky one, because Sky blocked Virgin from having them or something.

Good thing is we get Setanta though

They make me think of French resistance in world war two or something.
Just the way they're all sitting in a circle talking to the camera, it's like you just walked into a secret meeting for the first time and they're making plans on taking out supply trains to virgin media.

I think if this is really happening (and it's not being exaggerated by these guys), then it most certainly does need to be stopped. Just because it's a business trying to make money doesn't automatically justify any of its actions.

Oh so sorry, how stupid of me to try and make money to put myself through university.

I get £5 commission for each sale plus a £250 bonus. I'd rather have the money than all this moral highground bull, you are just getting outraged for the sake of it. Virgin is not the only company that does this. They are the fastest and the cheapest, if you think you can do better go ahead and start your own ISP.

So you'd rather pay £10 extra for sky each month than spend £5 on an hdmi cable and put the computer image on your tv screen?

I'm with you on this.

Aswell Mistress_Ibanez it's a shame that this not happening could affect your pay ... but really, i doubt you'd have the same "moral high ground bull****" stance if you say ... didn't work for virgin media .... and say just used it instead.

Because you (the little person) represent a small fraction (the little people that are employed by Virgin) compared to the rest of the population who will suffer as a result of this ****-head move.

Virgin don't sell crap stuff, there's still better customer service than anyone else.

Also, perhaps none of you angsty corporation-haters knew this, but there is a trade council to watch out for things like this. No ISP is allowed a monopoly on the internet. Virgin are by no means the only company to be doing this, so you ought to be angry at all the ISPs not just one.

Also I'd like a source other than some nerds holding a secret computer meeting.

Yes it is business, and so is boycotting companies who provide inferior service. No ones being stupid, people are just being sensible consumers by rejecting an inferior service.

I don't think you understand what they're trying to do here... They're actually trying to control the internet. And they're starting a trend here, if they do this, more companies will follow and we can't let that happen.

It's alot more serious than you think it is. Freedom is what makes the internet so special... They can't just take that away.

Give me a source other than some sad little nerds saying so and I'll believe you.

It won't be a ridiculously high fee.

And it won't make it so you have to pay to access the sites. The speed on virgin is still higher than the speed on companies that don't do this.

Get your facts straight before you all start having bitch fits!

Tiscali are another one spitting out their dummies because, in a nutshell, computer retards are starting to use bandwidth as much as geeks (read: pirates).

Several thoughts after watching the video:
1. Tanya's hawt.
2. They should clean up their room.
3. If this does occur, website owners will suffer a lot.
