Re: My insight...continued

by cellphonesaretools    Oct 20, 2011, 11:36 PM're kind of blowing this out of proportion.

1) I merely stated that it was unexpected on my part that Sprint charges strictly by the time the call was begun, while the other carriers change their charging rates as the clock ticks over into Unlimited minutes time. I also admitted that it was my own fault for not having known that, but I'd bet I'm not the only one who took it for granted that the Unlimited minutes began at 7PM, regardless of whether a person was in-process on a call or not.

2) It is perfectly valid for me to have the opinion that Sprint's method of charging is less fair. The key word here is "opinion".

3) I also stated that IMO overall Sprint still has the best deal when comparing Sprint's 7PM Unlimited Minutes to Verizon's 9PM unlimited minutes.

I actually have not contradicted myself at all, I believe you are perhaps just reading too fast and not taking time to comprehend, or you inherently have taken a dislike to my posts, so you read into them all the negativity you possibly can and thus misinterpret things.

My personal take on forum postings is that you can bag on someone who makes incomplete or incorrect statements, trying to pass off them off as factual, or someone who states what is really an opinion but they try to make it sound authoritative and final and thus factual. But you can't logically bag on a person who has clearly just stated their OPINION or their own EXPERIENCES and not claimed them to be facts. You might disagree wtith their opinions or interpretations, but if they are clearly stated as being opinions or recounting of their experiences, it is illogical and pointless to bag on them and get nasty or personal about it.
