      I have also discovered that there are a number of "sleeping users" who log on and give their side of the story as if they are outsiders looking in - the bottom line of all this is you are the judge, jury and executioner for all sky users.
      If you mean Sky employees who log on in an official status these are:

      Sky Broadband Team
      Sky Movies Team
      Sky Team
      Sky Anytime Team
      Sky HD Team

      All of the rest of the Sky members are members that may or not post are doing so in their own time or against the wishes of Sky themselves. And they risk getting sacked for doing so, as it is in their contracts to not do so.

      Or do you really think over 14000 employees from Sky post on here and pretend to be normal Sky Customers?

      Seriously we had this argument last year on here, and I would give up on the conspiracy theories now, there is no point in me trying to convince you any further as you clearly do not believe me. Which is entirely your choice.

      We approached Sky weeks ago to ask them if they could give us something to give away. We did not get an instant response and tbh were only expecting a year of subs free or something.

      Sky surprised us and made us the offer to give a Laptop away as a competition. But we had the problem then of being called "fixers" if any member of SkyUser that won it had been chosen by any of the Admins / Moderators off SkyUser.

      The way Sky conducted the competition and then CHOSE the winner themselves, made our task far easier.

      Although, Sky had no reason or indeed had to give us anything away whatsoever. For which we are grateful and would like to think they would do the same again in the future.

      I don't believe it, I think it was fixed. I downloaded 'blat' and spammed them the answer for twelve hours straight and still didn't win

      3 months.

      Re: Is SkyUser ran by Sky?

      You are not the first to accuse us of it being a fix, we got someone the other day, who then changed his post afterwards, and when questioned about it denied all knowledge of posting it at all. Even though we have email subscriptions switched on for that thread, which emails the full reply quoted.

      Still, it's better than CSI and we don't have to pay a subscription to Sky to read them though

      Hmmmmm am I a Sky stooge?

      Well I doubt if the site was in any way in bed with them I doubt the Sky Unhappiness page would even exist let alone being updated by some pretty unhappy people, including my tale of woe of over 9 weeks beofre I got activated properly.

      Of course the big one would be that this site is fully functioning, friendly, and no bugs or glitches in it and does exactly what it says on the tin.

      If sky can't even run it's business properly what makes you think that they are organised enough to pull this all off.

      if people actual read this site it is quite clear it is not sky, yes some employees i believe do post on here in their spare name. and we thank them but as well as postive things this forum has negative aspects about sky's service

      I hope you weren't referring to my post as I was clearly joking.

      But I do agree with what you say.

      Not me - the at the end of your post showed me you were joking.

      However the person who did accuse us of fixing it clearly wasn't.

      As you can see the Sky Customers are driven by IP and then classed as Easynet , whereas Sky themselves are actually the 17th best visitor in the last 30 days.
      Slightly offtopic that list ged, and the strange names on it, do you know to which ISP's they relate to? I am lazy to google them all and i am sure you have!
