Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Blimey. We've been emailed from the creators of a new site, imaginatively called BTHateWorld in response to the telco giant's Internet service BTOpenWorld. Now, we at The Reg are the first to point out BT's abject failure to do anything that doesn't make it instant money while also not allowing anyone else to compete effectively.

However, these are angry people at BTHateWorld. The only problem is that the justifiable anger at BT's crap service spills into crazed, ravings about the company and its directors (fortunately it avoids the slippery slope of insulting a particular individual).

The fury is also directed at Oftel - "an inept quango which wastes tax payers money and certainly does not appear to act as a regulator". The funny thing is, we have a hard time disagreeing with the non-bilious comment (although these are in the minority).

However, it's all in the presentation. We calmly suggest to BTHateWorld that it take a deep breath, count to 10 and then find some facts and figures to crucify BT with. We don't mind a bit of competition :-). ®
