Default Tiscali UK not for sale!

After the weekend when The Independent claimed that Tiscali UK was up for
sale, it seems according to at least one other site that Tiscali is denying
this (see NewMediaAge.co.uk).

Details of the price tag that does not exist can be found on The Independent
website. It was only in August 2006 that Tiscali UK acquired HomeChoice and
its 50,000 subscribers bringing video on demand experience to party.

Amateur website v respected daily broadsheet.

thinkbroadband.com (formerly known as ADSLguide.org.uk) is the UK's largest
independent broadband news and information site. We provide independent
advice and details on the services offered by Broadband Service Providers so
you can make an informed decision as to who to use as your supplier.

Ask anyone on here, they would recomend ADSLguide...

I'm entertained to learn how a quote from a company on their own
altruism would be useful.

You clearly haven't seen a copy of the Independent in a long while. Or
measured it.

WTF buys newspapers?


In that case, you made the above statement without knowing anything
about a 'respected broadsheet' - as a number of us suspected.

For what? The forum? It's got the ****tiest software I've ever seen on
a bulletin board


What's ****ty about it ?

It displays a thread which is more than most and it's not cluttered up with
idiotic graphics and avatars.

Yawn. More fool you for buying it.


I read your posts with increasing incredulity - it isn't necessary to
buy the paper to know these things. Now where's that killfile - ah
found it!
