    Dissembling - "we aim".

    I remember TalkTalk promising responses in I think "36 working hours." I asked them what their working hours were, they couldn't tell me.

    They were, without a doubt, the worst so-called provider ever.

    It's okay, Dido Harding fancies running the NHS now.

    We had absolutely no problem with them for years, but the last move was a nightmare. The fault was with Openreach who refused to lift a finger but TT kept promising responses and progress and nothing happened, they never responded, they never called back, and no escalation was available.

    Unconscious bias.
    Having just seen a new person posting and the icon, my brain wondered if it was a gender symbol or an ankh instead? Led me to check my facts and I soon realised that when the gender symbols are shown online, they are shown as female then male, but described beneath as male/female symbols! As if we don't know the pointy thing is um..... a far reaching male!

    Now I think our newcomer is an ankh with a listening head. Ha!

    Just my moan for the day...

    PS I note that if you don't have a picture (icon) or state your gender, you are a Query!

    Or you could have a photo avatar like mine and confuse somebody.

    Aw!
    If they are changing our avatar regime, I wish we could have new descriptions too!
    Well known member is so boring!

    Don't tempt them - some have descriptions from a previous capricious admin...

    I used to have a description on the old settings. Something to do with Nigella I believe.

    I don't think you can update your avatar until you reach a posting threshold.

    I joined a recently resurrected camera repair forum - I couldn't reclaim my old identity, as I'd lost my old login. My current status? Tinkerer...
