    Boards Discussion

    Thread starting post, to avoid showing the thread as being started by Doc, when his post was a follow-up to posts in a different thread that has been split.

    You're wrong. I think you're referring to the blue board, where there's practically no moderation whatsoever & they allow the bingo hall gossip queens to practically run that board, allow them to spread all kinds of rumours & gossip about whomever their targets are, welcome with open arms every single poster who's either been suspended or banned here & absolutely loves it when the regulars get involved in seemingly non-stop flame wars & name-calling. Which is why i've made up my mind (and i'm not alone) to leave that board for good. Au contraire, i'd say that THIS board is more like People magazine.

    I truly hope that you're doing well Lilly & didn't let this nonsense affect you too much.

    I agree with you, but we weren't talking about THIS board. I think the mods here are doing a pretty good job. Well, at least there IS moderating going on here.

    I totally agree with you Doc. I've come to the same decision myself and my only posts in blue will be to defend myself, this board and it's present and former members if the situation demands it. I wouldn't even do that, but some situations just have to be responded to at times. For the foreseeable future, color me green.

    I'd also like to add my best wishes to Lily and am glad to hear that all is well.

    I really can't argue with you, Techman about the moderation on the Blue board. Unfortunately, information (or misinformation) will flow freely regardless. I've recently become aware of a campaign of slander being waged against a young friend of mine by a purported former hobbyist. His tools, neither the blue nor the green board, are the telephone and Hotmail. A stealth campaign is much more difficult to defend oneself against.

    Whether or not this is true, this matter shouldn't be brought onto the boards since it's not the place for it. What happens in people's personal lives is none of our business. This is why many of us have left the blue board: we are just sick and tired of reading about people whining about things that happen outside the boards. If someone is concerned about a personal matter, deal with it on a one-on-one basis with the persons concerned & leave us alone. Whether Joe Blow blew a million bucks on escorts & whether so & so got ripped off is none of our business. Heck, i got stood up the other day for a dinner date. A few days earlier, my mechanic stiffed me on a routine repair. What am i supposed to do about it? Go on the blue board & whine about it? Get a life, people!

    Although in the past I disapproved of the practice of bashing one Board on the other (especially since this was done repeatedly by banned posters), I have to agree with everything you have said on this Doc. From what I have heard 5 prominent members including yourself have recently abandoned the blue board due to what you have stated above. I personally have no intention of going back there so long as it remains an unmoderated cesspool of garbage, misinformation, gossip, lies, bullshit, personal info and also inaccurate personal info. I have not been on either Board much lately for other reasons, but it should also be noted that there has been some big time BS posted here recently as well. But at least this Board is moderated.

    The owners of any Internet board have a right to run it as they see fit but all business decisions have consequences. If you allow a board to be dominated by a small group of individuals who post drivel on a consistent basis and all the posters who posted solid info, tips, and reviews, suddenly leave, how long is it going to be before your advertisers start to pull the plug? I think what advertisers look for is a board with a lot of reviews, not necessarily a lot of traffic. And I am not counting reviews in the street thread because last time I checked there were not any SWs paying for advertising on either Board.

    Talking Immunity

    First and foremost, I am not a member of the other board: the mere fact that I've been posting in it doesn't count as evidence to the contrary. After all, am I not banned forever from there?

    p.s. 7,000 views per fart might explain a few things, just a thought.

    Like that tall and gangly dude stepping out from the stinky elevator said: "It was me!" Sorry about ME being the umpire calling the strikes on you but having dealt recently with car dealers, I've become particularly suspicious over people offering 100% guarantees.

    Conclusion (mine)

    Two boards, similar looks, similar mission statements yet producing very different results: while I reproach this board of emotional cleansing and safeguarding the industry, I nonetheless enjoy the membership and the possibility of sensitive and intelligent exchanges. Moderation's not as erratic here as it is on the other board (where Mod4 hands out infraction points like candies whereas Mod1 lets just about anything fly).

    The other board, well, there was a time I appreciated the fact it had less participants, making it sort of more intimate. While it was less animated than this one, there was, generally speaking, more emotion. These days, unfortunately, the other board is dominated by uninteresting posters.

    I admit, this board is a better source of info than the blue board (which I never considered to be a reference) but when I see comments like this on here :

    I know I cannot believe all I read here. In what way does a comment of that kind about someone makes a board's information serious? Is the person who posted that comment involved in that woman's life to be able to state something like that? (no pun intended to Jipprock) This is the last comment of the kind I picked up when I was reading the board a few days ago (and I know that girl personally) but there is also this whole thread of speculations about my health which makes it scarier, and many other comments that have been made in the pasts about many other girls from many different agencies.

    This board is suppose to serve the purpose of informing the Hobbyists about the services they are looking for, not to find out what goes on in the SP's personal lives. And worse is there are some people who actually do believe that kind of things. A realiable source of information should be fair, unbiased and based on facts, not on rumors.

    The board can be a good source of information to those who are able to sort the good from the bad by themselves. But if used in the wrong way, it can destroy people's work.

    I am doing all right. It is mostly my feelings that are hurt by the assumptions of the people based on speculations instead of being based on facts. I am sure no one here would like if someone started a thread speculating on their lifes, health or anything else. If I see it in a positive way, I guess I should say that it is part of what comes with fame.
