    Learn to live with it - there will always be people on SERO plans. Censor the word? Seriously?

    You can no longer buy a new DeSoto, either. But the word DeSoto is part of history. Maybe we should just censor all words that anyone finds offensive? That sure would make communication difficult.

    Agreed. We should also censor stupid 'well what do you think blah blah blah' threads about things that no one can possibly know.

    I will never give up my SERO plan! SERO rocks! The Pre sucks because it tdoesn't allow SERO. Sprint sucks too for trying to eliminate SERO. I should be able to keep paying $20 for my SERO and get a Pre and free everything under SERO, and get to be a SERO premier sprint SERO user on SERO. So SERO SERO under SERO SERO SERO forever SERO SERO. SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO SERO. And finally SERO.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that this is another thread about SERO plans?

    At this point can we create a separate sub-forum for issues relating to plans. I understand that plans are a major issue for various people, but since the release yesterday it has been all plans all the time, leading to more speculation, recrimination, and general loathing between the two sides. I think Middle East peace will be achieved before there is SERO/non-SERO detente.
    I don't think censoring is the right approach, but perhaps relocating would be satisfactory to the greatest number. Keep this forum focused on the hardware and software and leave the plans to another sub-forum.

    Not true, not true at all. I have a SERO plan for one simple reason - it meets my needs for the phone that I use. When that is no longer the case, then I'll move on. But I can't see why people object to someone trying to keep what they have for as long as they have. Why should I give up a plan that meets my needs just to move to a new phone? Why should I not ask questions (in an open forum) about keeping that plan, and exploring my options with others of the same mind set.



    Censorship? It something that you exercise yourself - just don't read the postings. But the minute you want to start limiting what you want to read because it offends you or bores you, then the problem isn't with the postings, the problem is elsewhere.

    Strange, I thought TreoCentral was as well.

    Got a URL for any DeSoto threads? I'd like to see if I can get one under my SERO plan.


    (Obviously a little levity here, okay).

    Here is the Thread I started sometime back:

    I could go on...

    I think once the Pre is in full circulation the discussion will cool off.

    I agree 150% - unless no one gets a Pre on their SERO plan. THEN watch the fun start.

    I think it's pretty obvious, no matter how the Poll goes, We won't be censoring the word 'SERO'.

    I would guess the OP doesn't expect that.
    I think he's just expressing a frustration.

    Talking about SERO is relevant because tons and tons of people have it. So anyone that votes yes on this poll should also vote yes on only allowing talking about things everyone can have currently, which is silly.

    I would say though, that I think some of the frustration from the OP and clearly from some of the replies (31/16 in favor as of this writing) lies in the forum becoming all plans all the time versus all Pre all the time.
    Censoring is definitely not the option. I think removing threads and banning over the issue is clearly overly harsh and an over-reaction. People do care about plans, to suggest otherwise would be an error of elephantine proportions.
    It seems like it might make sense though, solely for the sake of readability and focus, to maybe shift the discussion to another sub-forum. There are definitely people who want to read and discuss plans as indicated by the sheer number of threads relating to the issue. Unfortunately, this fact has significantly changed the dynamic, one third of the current posts (as of this writing) on the first forum page (excluding stickies) relate explicitly to plans, this doesn't even factor in the threads that devolve to plan discussions.
    I think it would make some sense to re-tighten the focus of the main forum and then create a seperate forum, perhaps even attached directly to the current one, for the plans. No censoring but simply redirecting discussions to more tightly focused rooms for dicsussion.

    Yeah, maybe we need a Pre/Plan sub-forum or sticky then.
