Don't install Outlook if you don't want it

@Da Weezil - If you don't want or need Outlook, you only have yourself to blame for it being installed or being left installed on your system.

@ @ most posts on here

Although derveid's phrasing is a bit much the basic concept is what's recommended by the DVLA/Driving Standards.

Ofcom flashes cash guarantees at BT for fibre investment

I believe what AC was meaning was that if VM are allowed to maintain a monopoly on the network that they laid why couldn't BT be allowed to maintain the same level of freedom on any new network that they lay at their own expense.

To repeat myself a bit here....

If BT were to spend £15B laying a new network independent of the current copper then that would not have been inherited and should be able to remain completely under their control.

If however they'd be replacing the current network then fine, all they should be guaranteed is the ability to, at the very least, break even before control is wrested away from them.

Not a Space Dock

That's not a space dock! It's the shipyards in San Fransico.

Unless they're re-writing the whole lot - plus Kirk takes command of the ship some 20 years after it's maiden voyage.

The stupid should just stop using computers

Is there still those out there that fall for this age old 'trick'?

I hate to say it but those that are too stupid to learn from the many past, well publicised similar tricks should just be left to fall foul.

On the other hand, those new to game should be warned - but it seems to be the same people every time that are caught by these.
