a casual apology for INCONVENIENCE doesn't really cut it betfair. it is quite a bit more than an INCONVENIENCE to watch a guaranteed decent trading win wiped out without the ability to TRADE it. is this not a TRADING SITE???

Today I went into the bank. It was very busy. It was Saturday. Suddenly, they said all their systems were down. The customers were nonplussed. It happens a lot. The staff told them that they may have lost their money. But they apologised. So everyone went home happy.

Didnt they?

I dont think its a security or reliability issue.
Has it not been much more frequent since the reports in the news that Betfair profits had dropped and someone up the top said they had diversified too much and were going to concentrate on fixed markets. Heck of a coincidence.

Rather pointless though. Reputation is for the exchange feature. If its moving to fixed odds it becomes no different than any other site or a bookies ... well no different aside from having a s**t reliability record of course ;)

Why do we use betfair? Because its really the only place there is.

We continue to use betfair, because we have confidence in the stability and security of the platform.

This in turn helps betfair as they take a % of our profits.

What they fail to realise, is that "confidence in the stability and security of the platform." is absolutely massive in retaining our custom, if this carries on, people will just simply walk away.
