Sorry if my attitudes annoy you. But (in my professional life) , I was BOTH a Chemistry teacher and a Registered Pharmacist. And in those two professions there is NO room for error. When I purchase a product or a service, I expect that purchase to fulfill my expectations. And those expectations are to be as precise, and if I may say, (as perfect) as is possible. That holds true for everything, and every service that I purchase from the biggest to the smallest of expenditures. The things that I have complained about on this forum are things that EVERBODY is probably dissatisfied with. The only difference between they and I, is that I give voice to my complaints through this forum (you call it whining) and am not reluctant to place blame or responsibility when and where I think it should be placed.
I make no attempt to be politically correct, and consequently, if that bothers some posters, so be it. Despite my criticisms of him, Vegggas seems to be hale, hearty and continuing to post.
And I am going to continue to be critical (and whine) when things don't satisfy me. And if you're reluctant to post "tidbits of information" because of my presence, I must be much more powerful a person than I ever thought I was. Think, if you will of how you are depriving the hungry users of Cox and the cable citizens of Las Vegas of your "inside information". How much better off they would be if they had some of those pearls of wisdom. Even if they DID NOT turn out to be accurate and timely. I suggest that anybody annoyed by my posts, scroll past them, without bothering to read them, thus sparing the reader any "upset" or uncomfortable feelings. And even if they read them, no-one need respond to them if they would prefer not to.
I am forced to continue to reside in this city because of my medical conditions. And not being loaded with money, I cannot relocate to another warm climate. But I would, if I could.
But things such as NOT keeping the programmers and the cable providers "feet to the fire" has resulted in Las Vegas being in reality a second rate city, with second rate citizenry. IMO, the citizenry should DEMAND that everything be as close to perfect as possible, ALL THE TIME. And when it's not, they SHOULD "whine" loud and long about it, until things are set right.
