So, after the Phorm evilhood, and the weird brokenness detailed here, and the 30-odd hour no-notice outage they dropped on me just after I started working from home, literally driving me to drink (the nearest operational open WLAN I found was in a pub), now Virgin Media comes up with this. It's not just the delight with which they want to deliberately spoil everyone else's day to extract cash from non-customers, it's the contempt, to say nothing of the ideological horror within revealed by someone who thinks bus lanes exist to make buses go slower. Well, I've got all the contempt anyone can handle, so I've just churned to Bogons.net. I'll be cancelling on Virgin just as soon as they hook up my new ADSL link.
