    So how much of a kickback did hoof get?

    Pretty sure I’ll get perma banned now that corporate Canada owns hofo. But whatever I’ve only been a member since 2005 like my nick implies. Who am I to have an opinion.

    This used to be a prominent place for cell enthusiasts to get together talk about new tech, service quality, troubleshoot, and yes use loopholes so the savvy can avoid obvious gouging.

    I can only surmise hofo must have gotten one hell of a kickback. As to actually ban people for discussion that has taken place here for over a decade.

    Really disappointed. I call on all the users of this forum to frequent it as little as your addiction will allow. Perhaps once they notice significant decrease in site hits. They will begin to remember their roots. And that attacking their user base makes them no better than Electronic Arts lol.

    I just want to thank the people that shared their insight and hard work. Saved my friends and family tons over the years.

    Hofo you’ll be missed. Please come back to us.


    Edit: dang autocorrect changed hofo in topic to hoof lol

    Don't be ridiculous. How many more topics do we need on this? Personally I am tired of answering the same questions over and over. People are too f... lazy to search and read the information or they are too scared and need their hands held through the process. Not to mention people going off topic and people with reading comprehension issues.

    People aren't lazy to search...they simply dont read....if one actually read the first post, one would not have to ask any questions but most of the people "can never just be sure if the info complied from years of "research" is correct" lol

    There's a saying "third time's a charm" but for people even 4 threads weren't enough as they still asked the same question.

    One of the reasons why I stopped participating in the Koodo plans forum

    HoFo is very much still the place for people to discuss, but one topic and same questions, how many hundreds of time need to be asked?

    While reddit grows more and more vibrant.

    Small wonder when free discussion and helpfulness seem to be discouraged.

    Freudian slip?

    1 : to walk especially with haste
    2 : kick, trample

    You make some valid points. However when all future discussion is banned when some amazing loophole might occur in the future... just seams anti consumer. Pro corporate greed.

    I'm closing this thread as it has nothing to do with HOFO.
    I'll make it clear that we did not receive a kickback from the big three. This was closed solely based on the moderator's decision given the comments and posts that were made in numerous threads towards forum members. If you wish to discuss please inbox myself and i will be more than happy to deal with you.
