The content of this group has deteriorated into the toilet. Are there any
other groups with quality Sprint PCS information without the bickering and
personal attacks? This group was once a quality source of good information
but is now nothing more than the same old tired argument between the same
few individuals. Can anyone suggest some other places where there is a
better exchange of information? Thanks. Thadius.

I couldn't agree more. I'm about ready to split for good. This group
has turned into nothing but pathetic garbage. Try howardforums.com or
sprintusers.com. for much better SPCS discussion.

This newsgroup has taken a dive, all because of one troll. In saying that
though, it still offers some good information. You can check phonescoop.com
or sprintpcsinfo.com.

The troll is just the instigator. If the rest of you would
just ignore the idiot instead of reflexively responding his voice would
die in the wilderness.

I have the troll killfiled. I never see any of his tripe.
But the group is still clogged to the closing point with endless
arguments with him.

Killfile him and ignore him. The group will get back to
reality soon enough.

A group without you would suffice. Nothing else is asked. Nothing
more.

I'll make a deal with you. I'll leave for good if you do? That way
everyone else can have a much better group again. What do you think?

Don't leave quite yet.

If Robert is as smart as he claims to be, he'll back off and
try to be a productive contributor.

I am the most productive contributor here. I just don't take

I'll agree, HoFo's has always been good (even though I haven't been
there in a while) and SprintUsers has gotten much better.

Thadius:
Just to make your point, I note that this thread also has been hijacked into
yet another pissing contest. As a Sprint customer for ca. 7 years, I used to
depend on the willingness of a number of well-informed people on this
newsgroup to share their knowledge. I finally got fed up with all the time I
had to waste wading through bickering and name-calling to get an answer. It
is very easy to deal with trolls, just ignore them. But many people here
feel the need to feed the troll and for that reason, they are as much to
blame. I now depend primarily on www.howardforums.com. There are individual
forums for different carriers as well as for phone manufacturers. Other
relevant websites are www.sprintusers.com and www.phonescoop.com. I check
back here occasionally, but usually I only end up reading headers for
specific topics. Someone else has probably mentioned these sites already,
but I did not want to read all the other nonsense. Good luck, larry

I used to be a regular here several years ago. Now I just pop in from time
to time when I need to get info or ask a question. I've noticed that the NG
has sunk to dramatic trolls. I think this Philippe guy should be ignored as
others have suggested.

It's funny that Philipe (or whatever name he is using today) immediately
knew he was the troll.

Whenever I peek in here, it seems like most of the trash talking is between
Philippe-Bob Smith or Philippe-OSiris. If you two would just ignore him at
all costs (regardless of how hard it is) the NG will once again be the
terrific place I remember it being.
