In the event that anyone should post information about something that has occured on their U-verse service that doesn't make sense or conflicts directly with other posts, etc., it would seem to me that depriving them of the attention that they so badly desire would be the best course of action.
Now, when that post says something that might actually cause another forum member grief, I understand setting the record straight. However, otherwise, I think a "less is more" approach is called for.
So please, could we think twice before pressing the "Reply" button?

Sound advice and something I have to often remind myself of on other forums. There are so many times where you want to respond and it's usually better just to leave it alone.

Definitely a very wise choice, and would be particularly applicable to some recent specific examples that I'm sure we can all find on our own.

Good post and responses. I will try to hold my response from "baiting" type posts........

After reading this post I have decided to quit responding to one certain poster. I'm sure you know who it is. (Loss of Hallmark, no MLB, raising rates and losing channels).

I'm sure we can all think of two or three who we wish we'd never started with.

Unamed poster was really out in force yesterday. Sure wish there was a true "ignore user" feature on these forums. We all know he's the same poster as before, but we can't call him by his previous name or get spanked. I wonder if he even has UVerse since he claimed to have moved to Comcast for his precious MLB network.

What I want to know is why when a user [text removed] posts info that they know is misleading or wrong - they are not subject for removal / banning. Some folks love to start fires and watch other folks get in trouble or even banned.
Remember the repetitive and worthless "Day 151 and no Hallmark" posts?
I understand that a little more is expected out of the U-Talk Veterans so UT does not turn into a "Veteran's only" clique BUT I do think that the troublemakers exploit that a bit.

Because haters are gonna hate. That's what they do.

This is a reply to a ranter / whiner on another forum (wireless related):
The real question, sir, is do you regret coming into this forum, not reading the FAQ, and then thinking you can just go off on a freakin' rant about a perfectly decent service?
If you want to drool over an overpriced smartphone on an overpriced smartphone package on an overpriced plan with limited data, go ahead, be my guest. But don't make us suffer with your pain and agony, because we have to put up with the exact same crap as you.
In fact SJ may visit that forum too because one of the "ranks" (or maybe it is a self assigned / pick your own rank) is "haters gonna hate."

Well, they will definitely not get an invitation to the Christmas Party.
I got my invitations in the mail, also got my first set of steak knives, must mean I'm going to move up to czar soon. My first set were butter knives, got those when I reached junior czar.

I'll bet the unnamed sub you all are talking about has letters of the alphabet in their screen name, right?
