@feebsquared [Writes down date of birth for future identity theft attempts.] Hey Fee, what was your maiden name again?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feebsquared

There isn’t ANYTHING on the internet that you can access without “special” software. Every application has its client software. Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @BBCNews, I think “dark net” just means “something I either hadn’t heard of before or simply don’t understand”.

via Janetter for Mac

No, @BBCNews, “the dark net” is a meaningless term used by clueless hacks, people we laugh it.

via Janetter for Mac

“The dark net is the term used to refer to parts of the internet that are hidden and can be hard to access without special software,”

@Telstra Thanks, yes, that’s lovely. Though this isn’t urgent. I was just venting. I know you can’t kill actually whoever made the mistake.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

@Telstra That’s exactly what’s happening, Patrice, but I don’t see what we can do, apart from just keep telling them it’s wrong. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

And if I hear any more “Storify is a new kind of storytelling” muppetry I will come around and personally piss in your Kool-Aid bottles.

via Janetter for Mac

When you report on something that happened on TV, you don’t draw a series of little pictures of television screens.

via Janetter for Mac

Anyone who uses Storify is part of the problem. Stop with the teenage bedroom wall pinup bullshit and be a fucking journalist.

via Janetter for Mac

@rycrozier @yinettesys Yes. And if their actual network doesn’t live up to how their advertising describes it then they should be crucified.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rycrozier

@yinettesys @rycrozier I see no reason why such things shouldn’t be online. An organisation should be proud to show they fix faults quickly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@walkleys @CatrionaPollard If you suspect you are a “thought leader” it’s better just to kill yourself to save the species.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to walkleys

Oh yes, @rycrozier, “glitch” is glorious bullshit. Let’s spin this major upfuckage so it sounds like it was nothing. Arseholes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rycrozier

Meanwhile, I await the day that @Telstra BigPond Escalation listens to me tell them they’ve got the wrong number and stops phoning me.

via Janetter for Mac

If only there were some way for a major telco to contact its customers, @Optus.

via Janetter for Mac

If organisations pro-actively contacted people to say that there’s something going wrong, they wouldn’t have to keep answering the question.

via Janetter for Mac

Christ, I’m sick of the mealy-mouthed “issue”. Call it a fault, an outage, an intermittent interruption, and be fucking honest with people.

via Janetter for Mac

Gawd, @Optus, you didn’t even say what kind of service was even affected. Don’t hold back now.

via Janetter for Mac

Lulwut, @Optus? An “issue”? Something is wrong somewhere, somehow. Well here’s a big, rousing cheer for concrete nouns and information!

via Janetter for Mac

Optus We are aware of an issue affecting some Optus customers at the moment. We’re currently investigating the problem and will keep you updated.

@johnb78 Yes, phrases like “there can be no suggestion that” are what’s called “begging the question”, I think. An assertion.
