International Cat Speculators Since 2006

Cheers Fair Go


Recently I’ve gone off Fair Go. They seemed for some inexplicable reason to have reached the end of their store of people with legitimate grievances, and started on those who just want a free ride.

Actually, they did have one of those last night- a guy who got his phone line piggybacked off his resthome PABX but still wanted a free listing in the white pages even though he didn’t pay Telecom any line rental. That’s called having your cake and eating it too.

However, they did impress me mightily with their anti counterfeiting investigation. They turned up several weaknesses, including an American ISP who was illegally (and it seems, knowingly) turning a blind eye to counterfeit websites on their service.

They also managed to track down and find the names of some of the distributors, and various other elements of the trade.

Several legislative deficiencies were highlighted, let’s hope they’re fixed soon.

Great stuff, keep up the good work guys.

  1. I had a similar response to both articles. If the guy was paying less than a standard rental then telecom should’ve offered a price increase with a free listing (not that I have a lot of sympathy with telecom).

    It seemed like the Utah ISP was not at all concerned about the criminal actions of its clients. Not that ISPs should necessarily police everyone, rather the ISP seemed disinterested in knowing about it.
