The Blue Room hasn't really got into I'd Do Anything in anything like the same way we discussed every nuance of SCD and DOI, so I have been visiting the IDA forum on DS *blushes with shame*. There are some weird and downright nasty people there who are, inexplicably, not pulled up or banned by the mods, but, to be fair, there are some reasonable and well-balanced people too (probably BR members on a day-trip Wave).

The key thing is not to get angry with the idiots but just ignore them. Starved of the oxygen of a reaction, they get bored and drift away. Oo-er, just like dealing with bullies in the playground, really!

Yes...me too, though I've only posted a tiny bit, I read more than I post over there! It's very busy, it suprised me, I don't remember it being as active when Joseph was on but I could be wrong.

I am pleased to see this thread here.
 
I have been involved with a thread about playlisting on BBC Local Radio on Digital spy, which I thought was a respectable forum.
 
I now have my doubts, the moderators have suspended me and others for very moderate comments and yet they allow very abusive posters to continue with insulting remarks when they are not capable of argument..and then they allow these abusive posters to report those that they cannot argue against.
 
 
Digital spy is losing all credibility..its moderators are to blame, they are incompetant  idiots and that is the positive reaction to them!!
 
Will expain more later.

Hello Tiger, link us to the forum so we can have a look for ourselves.

Moderating is a tough job but the DS mods are a law unto themselves, not very consistant

If you have ever wondered about the BBC Local Radio playlist and why it all seemed so ... well... BBC Local Radio... well I did too so ...

And I know moderation is not easy..but surely it needs to be even handed. Otherwise you have to suspect collusion?

I honestly can't understand DS. They allow out and out bullying in, where several folk gang up on one poster to the extent that the whole thing becomes rather dark and horrid and the mods do nothing.   Then they ban others out of the blue
I was directed here by Bren and it is a lovely room. We can all argue, disagree etc but our opinions, no matter how diverse, are respected.

Oh that's not the worst about DS - have you ever vebtured into their fanfic threads?  Don't - you will be offended.  They go into overdrive with SCD - writing utter crap about various sexual connections between pro dancers and celebs.  I am surprised that it isn't viewed as libel or slander


Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

Yes, I have to agree that there is bullying on Digital Spy. It is something that is very unpleasant and has been tolerated by the moderators. Certain posters with a common interest(in my experience it was playlisting on commercial radio and BBC Local radio) gather together and try to force dissenting voices off the forum and bleat for bans when they have been sussed. I believe in free speech and would never report any poster..until I saw what was happening. There is certainly a problem with moderation on DS.
 
 
It is good to see that forums such as this one exists.

All Fanfic on the SCD forum got banned a couple of years ago.  It was quite disgusting!  I don;t know if there's another section for fanfic, but it's certainly not on the Strictly forum any more.  I believe the main perpetrators started up a new website especially for such fanfic - don't know if it's still running or not.

Fanfic is a dodgy conception at the best of times: although I was amused at a spoof fanfic posted on there (& rapidly taken off Whistle) about Anton du Beke (aka Tony Berk) his Brazilian houseboy Felipe and the day Brucie got a bad case of flu... I still have it actually...

In fairness (booo!) to DS, moderating is a tough job even on a small forum, every day there's something to do, spam or people trying to be clever and seeding links by pretending they're interested in a topic on here.

DS are slack in some areas and way too trigger happy in others
