    I usually only lurk here but I'm curious.
    Does anyone else find it unethical that this guy .. Phillipe is it ?
    Seems to only have negative things to say about PCS but is perfectly
    happy to rape them on a retention plan while totally running them down.
    Obviously he has mental issues, I mean look at the amount of names he
    uses, the frequency of his posts, the fact that when cornered he will go
    on a rant that has nothing to do with the thread, or will totally ignore
    anything not conforming with his , well let's be honest , slanted
    point of view.
    The man is an obvious Troll, and is mostly posting in order to stir up
    things, it's apparent that this gives him some odd pleasure.
    My 2nd Question is, in light of all this evidence why do we respond to
    him ? what do we hope to accomplish ? do we think by some miracle he
    will see the light and stop his insane actions ?
    If it is the intent to retaliate to his troll tactics then we have been
    going about it all wrong.
    The only way to truly stop this guy, the only way to get his goat is to
    totally ignore him, granted he will most likely do something pathetic at
    1st like respond to his own drivel when no one else will, but if ignored
    I feel he will eventually give up talking to himself and go elsewhere
    for his sport.
    My suggestion is to boycott any post he makes, totally ignore him. This
    may be difficult as he will surely try any tactic in a desperate attempt
    to save his twisted status here, but if we all hold steady I'm sure
    sooner or later he will give up, or straighten up.
    Any thought ? , anyone willing to form an alliance to this effect /

    Jim

    Well, the IP# shows it's Michael Arends.

    At least he's not using explitives from his
    office today.

    Such totally incorrect descriptions will
    prove to be counter productive.

    So what? You're out to screw the company for every penny you can while
    you badmouth them. I think there's a lot of merit to the theory that you
    are an ex-employee, although I don't necessarily think it's true. If you
    were, it'd make perfect sense.

    I'll be the first to admit that you occasionally do post nuggets of useful
    information, but most of what you post is crap, going on and on and on about
    how the carrier you supposedly enjoy using is going down the tubes. Oh, but
    you continue to use them. Hm, now, if I was so completely sure that my
    carrier was going under, I'd probably switch. I mean, if something happened,
    I'd rather have already moved carriers and changed numbers so I wouldn't
    get stuck.

    I already dumped one carrier (Northcoast PCS) when their network went to
    hell a year after they launched their unlimited $39.95/month service in
    Cleveland. The difference between you and I is this: I didn't keep on
    blathering on and on about it. I posted a couple times how crappy they'd
    become, but it was not a half-dozen posts every day about how they're the
    worst carrier in the world, which seems to be what you're doing with SPCS.

    Oh, wait a minute, but that would be *logical* - wouldn't it.

    We all know Sprint has customer service issues. No one is arguing that,
    least of all me. (Oh, I *am* arguing that? Hm, you think you can point to
    some proof, Phil?)

    But you post the same thing over and over again, morphing and morphing
    and morphing so that people have to re-killfile you. Let me clue you into
    something: You don't have a God-given right to force your message
    on everyone. Stay with one screen name. People who want to read you will
    read you. People who don't want to read you can just keep you killfiled.

    Oh, and another thing. You seem to ignore questions posed to you in
    response to your replies. Not all the time, but often enough that I and
    others have noticed it. I wonder why?

    **SJS (waiting to be called names by Phillipe because he won't want to
    address any of my points)

    Re: Lack of ethics ?

    What an idiot,
    I don't even know who the hell Michael what's his name is, my name is
    posted right here ya moron.
    I would expect something like this from you.

    Now back to the original intent here.
    Is ANYONE willing to shut this nut off ?
    Please respond, I think he's nervous now, it'd would be a blast to see
    what happens when people start actually responding. should make for some
    interesting posts don't you think ?

    Jim Catero
    I don't work for Sprint, if I did Phillpe would have to find another
    carrier.

    Phil is the last one that should point out IP addresses and aliases. What
    are you up to Phil, 25 different names?

    He's never denied the ex-employee angle, and I've posted it more than once.

    Steven, he trolls many more groups than this one. I've personally seen his
    drivel on 5 different groups.

    That's the beauty of it- no one has ever argued about the quality of PCS
    customer service, and yet he continues to argue it. Do you think its news
    to anyone here, Phil?

    It his false feeling of self-importance- he tries to come off as an expert,
    and yet, the majority of stuff he posts is crap. Never researches, just
    shoots from the hip.

    I'll take a stab at that- he doesn't answer because:

    a. He knows answering will negate whatever point he is tryingto make.
    b. He has no clue about how the industry, its technology, and its
    financials work.

    And I'll bet I've asked at least 50 questions in the last month alone that
    he has refused to answer.



    And Phil- the only reason I continue to post in response to your crap is
    because I wouldn't want a newbie to PCS to stumble on here, think you
    actually know what you are talking about and base a decision on your
    personal opinions dressed up as facts.

    One last thing for the troll- before you start on the apologist crap, I'll
    tell you for at least the fifth time-

    I don't work for Sprint, and never have.
    I don't receive any type of financial consideration or compensation from
    Sprint, and never have.
    I don't use Sprint PCS , and never have.
    I don't use any Sprint product, and never have.


    And yet, I do have an interest in PCS.......use that little spacesaver
    between your ears and try to figure it out.

    Yes, he did. In his case, he was 180 degrees from Phillipe. He posted here a
    few weeks ago, trying to sell a few of his older phones ...
