      What's the point of a non Sky user signing up?

      I just signed up to Sky so that I could assist my customers who are Sky users. In particular, those who have had no broadband for the last two days.

      After signing up and verifying my account I find that unless I'm a Sky customer I am unable to post messages on their forum.

      So they now have my personal details, which I'm sure will lead to an increase in spam in my inbox, and I can't delete my account.

      What's the reasoning behind this?

      I'm not paranoid, but I am highly suspicious of the motive!

      To keep spam out.

      yeah, but why have a non-Sky user sign in at all then?

      TT for instance won't let non users join the forum. You can look at it without a login though.

      True that. Can you send PMs?
      If you can why don't you try sending one to one of the Sky reps there and ask for an explanation.
