Pokerstars-Tickets Not Showing Related Tournaments

Sent the following to Pokerstars:

I have about 30 something pokerstars giveaway tickets that have cost me a fortune to collect yet i cannot find a single game to register any of them too. Why?
These tickets have been expiring for weeks, I had more.
This is a blatant rip off. It’s bad enough you are happy to take southern hemisphere coin yet refuse to schedule any games in time slots that suit us, now this!
Totally rude! Why is this happening? 
This is the reply:
Thank you for your email.
We appreciate you taking the time to submit this Bug Report.

We value your feedback and would like to assure you that it is currently under investigation of our Programming Team.

We know how important it is for you and all other players, to get this issue fixed as soon as possible.

In the meantime, you can still register into desired tournaments using the preferred ticket by locating the eligible tournaments directly from the tournaments lobby.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Thank you for your patience and for playing on PokerStars.

 Now that's all very well and they have a bug. Well bloody well fix it! It's impossible to find these games in the tourney lobby, no one even knows what they are called and besides which given they are only played between 5 and 7am NZ time it's not like many of us will see them pop up.

And I notice my comment re their schedule slide straight through to the keeper as well. Not that I expected anything else.

Ill Immigrants Want to Burden Kiwi's Pt.2

And today the HOS continues with it's assault on the kiwi taxpayers wallet with demands from the moronic do good pantie waists at the Human Rights Commission that immigration should be more compassionate?
Mojo Mathers comment "If today's criteria had been applied to me when my family applied to migrate here back in 1981, it is likely I (or my mother who is a survivor of a major motorcycle accident) would have been rejected as well," is laughable.
Lets be honest, if that criteria had been applied NZ would be better off and we would be one less troughing watermelon fruitcake, I fail too see how that's a bad thing!

Ian Lees-Galloway has learned a new word and throws it out throws it out there but isn't saying what we should give up to keep foreign cripples and autistic kids in life long care.

Autism NZ CEO now wants wants lawyers involves as he thinks our rights to determine who can and can't come and live in our country breach some treaty of the commies at the UN the fucking idiot.

All he's going to do is piss away his associations money on suits that will eventually come back and tell him what a half wit could fathom for himself; that we bloody well do have the right to say who does and doesn't live here and we can and should apply any bloody criteria we like.

Nobody is suggesting that NZ's autistic kids should be packed up and sent away. I'm sick and tired of these grandstanding cunts that will say and do anything to get their names in the paper.

Ill Immigrants Want to Burden Kiwi's

The Herald is once more advocating that immigrants to this country get special treatment and that the Immigration ministry is remiss in not listening to the Heralds simpering and hand wringing as our bureaucrats finally do what we pay them to do which is look after our best interests not the interests of a small minority of unfortunately afflicted which have the nous to run to the press.

Statements like this need to be challenged "The Brazilian-born woman, who is in a wheelchair, has been rejected residency because of fears she may be a burden on the health system. Her doctors say that is unlikely."

Of course her doctor is going to say that, why wouldn't he/she? It's an open ended statement and "unlikely" doesn't mean a thing.
Quite frankly its just as "unlikely" that she won't be a burden on our already over strained health system in much the same way as an Autistic kid will be both a burden on our health and education systems.

I'm sorry but this just isn't NZ's problem to bear, we have our own burdens on society. 

It's high time our immigration officials took a harder stance on the quality of immigrant to this land. One only has to sit in a public hospital emergency room to see the multitude of entitled, pushy, arrogant, non English speaking patients that should really have gone to a GP but refuse to as it will cost them. 

I've just gone through this experience after being referred to North Shore Hospital by my GP. The attitude of some of these people is mind boggling and one even demanded an interpreter which a nurse whispered to me would be paid for by the hospital...which means me! Last time I looked the bloody hospitals weren't paying their way. The taxpayer was.

So stuff the Herald and its cry baby soapbox for those that are a bit hard done by and good on immigration for making the tough calls and putting NZ first for a change.

It's about bloody time!
