@cmccowie Please have a read of the following mega thread about the captch cluster foo bar that optus rolled into prod and then took a long time to fix:
You are not the only one who has had problems in the last two weeks and you got the standard optus QOS script.
Good luck in getting any traction.
There still seems to be a problem with the captcha, but not potentially affecting as many people as before there have been a few posts reporting issues since the last Optus mod post on this thread.
Webmail seems to be working as of this afternoon WITHOUT Captcha.
No advice from any moderators or Optus - but that is normal poor (almost non existent) customer service - from a customers point not from any internal Optus KPIs (performance measurements)
@jawsjaws100% agree and it gets worse if you dig into how the senior mods give qudos and give answers to responses that are essentially go ask on myapp or facebook or...., hwich are NOT answers.
BUT it does keep the KPI's for the team and their training of staff they look at a good rating when the managers look at the reports for how yescrowd is working. It also shows that the system is broken on Optus are not trying to help end users.
@uyfaThe vast majority of responses are from a databse and/or set of scripts as if they cannot be resolved it is either a) escalated into the either or b) Try another area.
Have a look at the contract you got when you signed up to confirm what if any penalties there are. If you do not like it then make a formal complaint about the service via the following optus page and indicate you want out of the contract without any penalties, but be aware it will take in all probability the full 2 + 10 days for someone to physically call you.
