Complaint message -- what does this mean?

I complained to VM as setup was very problematic and in short I had no service for the first month, despite being charged.   My complaint was along the lines of "why should I pay for a service I wasn't receiving".  I recently received this email in reply.  Can anyone decipher what it means?

Here’s a quick recap

Here’s what we offer as resolution:
Customer Experience > Agent or Technician Professionalism - Internal feedback provided

We hope this works for you.

We’ll keep your complaint open for 28 days from now just in case you still want to talk through your options. Please ring us on 0345 454 1111* if you’re not completely happy with the resolution.

Re: Complaint message -- what does this mean?

It's patronising gibberish isn't it? How long do you think it took the team to process that one? 30 seconds max? It suggests that someone got a feedback email internally.

If you aren't happy with with this reject it as a resolution and state in terms what you consider to be an appropriate one.

There is a clear escalation route that we can help you with as you go along.

Re: Complaint message -- what does this mean?

Hello spoovy,

This is not good enough at all and I am very sorry you have had to bring this to our attention. 

I can take a second look at this for you.

I will need to raise another complaint and pass security with you.

I just need to ask a few questions.

If you can check the purple envelope top right of your screen that would be great.

Re: Complaint message -- what does this mean?

What does it mean? I'll tell you exactly what it means. 

It means that Virginmedia cares exactly **** all about their customers, and just wants them to shut up and go away with their complaints of poor service.
