Promotion requires permission - No Affliation with CBNSat

There is a certain controvesy going on in this blog regarding the credibility of this blog. I stress once again that we are not affliated and not operated by any Cable TV operator. What some of you are doing is the same the CID is doing to CBNSat. CBNSat is being linked to LTTE and some of you are linking us with CBNSat. We should all focus our attention on the present crisis.

Some of you are disappointed that we deleted some posts. We had to remove the post since if you want to promote any other forum which focuses on the same issue. Please send an email and get permission. We will check whether the link is genuine and then you can promote.

Please understand that we have to careful to see what type of sites are linked to this blog.

Originally this blog required registration for commenting. This requirement was removed to make it easy for our readers to comment. So I leave upto all of you please tell us whether you want us to reintroduce registration or continue this blog in the present way.

Please email tvradiosrilanka@yahoo.com for permission for promoting similar forums and also email us and tell us what you want us to do with the status of this blog with regard to registration.

IF YOU DO NOT REQUIRE THE SERVICES OF THIS BLOG PLEASE TELL US AND WE WILL CONSIDER STOPPING THIS EFFORT.

ONCE AGAIN WE STRESS THAT WE ARE NOT OPERATED BY ANY CABLE TV OPERATOR.

This site is quite helpful to understand what is happening in the country. Especially to such cases where coverage by other media is less or lopsided. Trust is very essential and the onus of ensuring that this blog is neutral is in the hands of the sponsor/blog owner. Good work keep it up.

Blog Admin,

I’s 100% sure this is another lame attempt of the people who are plotting against the CB customers.
They are just trying to break you and stop this blog.
This blog has been on the only true source of information to actual CBN customers during this issue.

Keep this running and true CBN customer will always be with you.

The admins of this blog shouldn't even bother about these allegations. While I firmly believe that there are loads of posts by CBN Staff I don't think the blog admins are CBN people. perhaps more moderation is required tho

Blog Admin

We urge you to maintain this blog as this is the only consolation we have who lost CBNSat. Until I came across this blog, I was desperate to gather news/updates etc with regard to CBN case.Apart from this we have gathered lots of information as well as very good comments by various people. Therefore kindly maintain this even after CBN resumes operations to suggest further enhancements etc.

This is what has transpired today within this forum (specifically in "CBNSat 9th hearing today 5th July 2006" blog) regarding the deletion of some users posts and then subsequent and arrogant deletions of bloggins of me and Joly Lucifer. Subsquent to this "TV & Radio Sri Lanka" Admin anounces the blog "Promotion requires permission - No Affliation with CBNSat". Please read carefully.

"Now this list too is moderated !

Just few minutes back there was a suggestion to form a moderated forum (away from this forum) to discuss refunds and avoid unwanted marketing and harrasment by assholes.

CBNSat guys are playing a major role and apparently the moderator of the forum is also from CBNSat.

Well done CBNSat !"

Now it is apparent who is running this blog and what is expressed here is for CNBSat but not for CBNSat customers.

CBNSat is suppressing their own customers !

A couple of my previous comments here were deleted due to a discourtesy on my part and not through any fault of the administrators of this blog. We have discussed this matter and it is now resolved.

I believe this blog to un-affiliated with CBNsat or any other agency, government or otherwise, and is run purely in the interests of cable/broadband customers affected by the current crisis.

Anyone suggesting otherwise is unaware of the hard work that has gone into this site. At times like these we have to stick together without turning on each other.

Well "Vanatha Fella" looks like we upset you somehow. The reason we removed the post by "JL" was because they were promoting a different forum. If you wanna start a forum and promote it here then you have to email and obtain permission. JL has emailed me and I have had a communication with them so if you think we are from CBNSat well then you are entitled to your opinion.

But then look at the posts even the posts made by several Comet Cable guys are still here. So if we were really promoting CBNSat then those should be gone too.

Please do not make baseless allegations. Let's concentrate on getting this problem solved.

Jolly Lucifer and TV & Radio Sri Lanka, Thank you for coming out with your stance and your policy on the blog. I believe you should have stated your policy the first time when you noticed Lucifer's and my messages, rather than keep on deleting.

Upto today I never challenged your integrity and this blog has been a quick source of information on our plight (sometime it had been a pain in the ass due to SHITNet and Comet Cable MFs).

But very clearly I notce a clan beyond being CBNSat customers in this blog.

I will be a careful observer here onwards in this blog.

Vanatha Fella my apologies for what happened. It was a misunderstanding that I got into with JL that caused this. Well I am sorry that the trust that you had in this blog is damaged. But be rest assured that this blog will be neutral and what do you think about the idea of moderating the comments by requiring the people who want to comment by registrating. Even the others please comment on this suggestion of registration. We are in no way attached to CBNSat or any cable tv operator. We want to push for quality entertainment and introduce new technology to the entertainment industry. At the moment the CBNSat/LBN blog is focussing on getting CBNSat/LBN on line.

I extented my support conditionally.

--start-quote7--
Admin, I could not agree more with that idea. If you implement that definitely we will have some discipline withing the bounds of our plight (easy to chase away SHITNet SOB's and Comet Cable MFs).

I paid my hard earned money, which I would not like to waste. CBNSat was providing a wonderful service, I do not disagree at all. I want the serivice back and I do my best to support the effort like anyother. In the same time I do honor the opinions and freedoms of other individuals. If someone says something geniunely, we should not curtail them.

I am with you always when you play the game fair.

I hope, the Admins if they are neutral (so they claim), they will not be offended by the word "REFUND" and the like again.

I believe registration is an excellent idea. Anonimity is fine but quite easy to abuse in discussions found here.

According to todays neth fm news they have said that charges will made against the owners of CBNSat according to TRC act.

And further amendments will be brought to the Rupavahini Corporation act as it does not contain neccesary regulations to cover satellite tv broadcasts.

THESE AMENDMENTS SHOULD COME THROUGH THE PARLIAMENT AND IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 3 MONTHS !!!!!!!!!

So nothing will happen till end of September for sure.

I totally agree with the government bringing in whatever regulation to this industry. But it's unfair from the customers point of view to discontinue a service we have enjoyed for years by not having regulations.

Can't the court order CBNSat to restart operations and not to issue any new connections till the new regulations pass. By this way the consumers rights will be protected.
