Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The blueyonder helpdesk operator who was sacked for posting "inappropriate comments" on a newsgroup has asked for his job back.

In a contrite email to El Reg Shaun Pears wrote: "At the present moment I am at a loss of what to do, in terms of what action I can take.

"All I want is a second chance (my job back).

"I know what I did was totally stupid, as you are well aware text has no tone.

"I really didn't mean to cause offence, as I have already said it was only meant as banter, a wind up if you like.

"Ok it was done in company time, although I wasn't just sitting there and not doing my job this was happening in between calls," he said sheepishly.

Telewest has yet to confirm that Pears was dismissed but admitted it was conducting an internal investigation. Here's hoping some good comes out of this. ®
