Exactly. I didn't post here for a while after the zinglebarb incident.

Now we have another moderator abusing their position of power.

Who the hell moderates the mod's?

Is this the way Frank Whitestone wanted it to be?

Nor do I. I think Alex does though.

Quote:
I do care about someone effectively spying on myself and others in my family.
A point I didn't raise in my post, so not really relevant in your reply to me.

Quote:
I take exception that someone in your shoes can say what you have just said without recourse. I hope you get the recognition that you are so blatantly after.
All of the team on this site are free to comment in any thread. And we don't do it for recognition, most of us have been here far too long to give a fig what people think of us. Me included.

Quote:
In fact I will nominate your post for an Oscar, because to be quite honest, it's the biggest and most over critical response I have ever seen any moderator on here perform.
No, it's not overcritical, it's simply a response that runs contrary to the pack mentality in evidence throughout this thread. Freedom of speech, within the forum rules, means you take criticism as well as dishing it out. Something a lot of posters in here need to bear in mind.

Quote:
And to think we get told off for baiting people.
Yes, baiters get told off. And the moderators are moderators because they have proved that they can tell what's baiting and what's reasonable expression of an unpopular opinion.

Quote:
The Policeman could have at least attempted to verify who Alex was, it's not as if Alex didn't include his phone number with the report, and afterall, the Police have CLI
Actually the issue of 'who Alex was' didn't really come in to that conversation until after Alex's rather patronizing insistence that the copper doesn't understand RIPA. Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't, but if you want to form a productive relationship with someone, you don't go about it by implying they don't know their job. Nor do you do it by threatening to go running off to the Press. That is the precise moment when the DS got hostile, and frankly with good reason. Prior to that, I reject Alex's analysis that the DS was 'hostile'. He wasn't. He was circumspect, professional and guarded, given that he had no idea who he was talking to, and no way of performing adequate background checks during the course of the conversation. There's more to it than simply knowing someone's phone number.

Quote:
All that Policeman achieved was make the CoL look stupid, and incompetent - He obviously hadn't read the report whatsoever.
In your opinion.

Quote:
That's of course if I am allowed to have an opinion,
Yes, you are.

Quote:
and not be classed (in your eyes) as an Alex's backside licker.
Your words, not mine.

You appear to have formed the impression that there's a rule on this forum that you don't reply to someone if they're not online to reply to you.

You need to know that you are wrong about that.

Re: Virgin Media Phorm Webwise Adverts [Updated: See Post No. 1, 77, 102 & 797]

I have reported that post - it is an offensive and personal attack on a forum member and his suggestion that I and other members would be impressed by bad behaviour is disgusting.

Coming from a moderator it is totally unforgivable and I hope that other echo my sentiments.

I call for him to be removed from the forum immediately and permanantly.

You weren't talking to him and you sure as hell weren't listening to him, you were thinking only of how great it would make you sound.

The whole thing reeks of a late night, local radio telephone prank call. Except without being funny.

Bad show.
I find your comments simply outrageous and feel that you should be removed as a moderator by your fellow SENIOR mods for that blatant attack on Alex.

Moderator or not you are completely out of order and are in breach of forum rules.

Get off the forum and don't come back.

Our staff are allowed their opinions, just like everyone else, it was not posted in a moderator capacity, so the fact he may be one is completely irrelevant.

Sure, just after hell freezes over. Get over yourself, no rules were broken. I suggest you stick to the topic, not worry about our moderators.

Peter N. I tried that last time with zinglebarb. It's a waste of time. Ranks close in so to speak.

Clearly Chris T has had a BAD DAY and wants to pick a fight.

Go have a whisky man and stop being so spiteful.

Bad show.
I'm comparing this post to the forum rules, and struggling to get my head round how to reconcile the post, and the rules. I hope we can continue to discuss Phorm, Webwise and Adverts without baiting or hostility or personal comments as we have been so recently advised by a moderator.

I shan't be joining in for a while as the standard has just seriously deteriorated. I'm not reporting this post, as I don't currently feel that would achieve much except probably to my disadvantage. Perhaps those reading can make their own judgements. Good night all and I hope things return to sanity very very soon.

Given his signature, I regard CT's post as just as offensive to contributors to this thread as the previous 'mod's post which referred to us as 'fools'.

... as Paul M has just demonstrated.

There will be one other mod along in a minute to flex muscles. Then mod xxx will restore balance with the thread being locked for 'cooling off'.

If you have followed this thread from the start you will know thy mod allies and thy mod enemies.

Any more off topic posts about moderators will be deleted. This thread is about phorm, not our moderators.

In addition to Paul M's post above...

If you do not agree with our moderating policies, you are not being forced to post here, clear off. Before that decision is made for you.
