The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending in Barbados today.
Readers were happy to hear to that LIME had resolved the Internet issues experienced over the last couple days, but many were still disgruntled about the service delivered by the telecoms company.
Attempts to hack LIME’s Internet system were to blame for the poor Internet service experienced by many of their customers over the past few days, says Alex McDonald, LIME’s managing director. He assured that the problem was not widespread and that LIME’s servers had not been compromised.  
“The attack, though confined to a small portion of LIME’s Internet customer base, inconvenienced the affected customers and gave the appearance of a widescale service-impacting problem on the company’s network,” noted a statement from the company.
This is what readers said:
Princess Neferua:  “Blame the poor hacker for all that long time [of] bad service. …”
Mirna Vegas de Hughes:  “Yeah right..  And I will get back every cent you owe me for the five days without Internet.”
Trudy Alleyne: “How do you  hack a lime.”
 Fontanet Haynes: “Always good to have another person to blame.”
