Sympathy for the victim. It makes me angry when people acquire stuff dishonestly. Was it the front or back door?

BT have to pay out huge fees when their network goes down and their customers Sky, , Talktalk get cut off.. we've talking thousands per hour.. So in some respects you are better off as a customer of a customer of BT than you are going to BT.
