The death of a forum

Post by ifm » Sat Apr 28, 2018 12:33 am

OK, we have all watched this place descend from a balanced, interesting, topical forum which actually included as posters many of the best darters in the world to a bdo hatchet job, that's fine btw, if that is what is required to keep this place afloat then ok i will live with that (providing i can offer some recourse which is getting harder as the mods become more anti bdo).
But, lets look at the way it has actually gone, the anti BDO brigade have totally taken over, this place is actually now known throughout darts as a place you are more than welcome as long as you abuse the bdo, note i don't say favour the pdc as that is rarely the case.
The only posts on here since 3.43 this afternoon have been to troll the bdo.
Right now we have three active mods, Nik who is so traumatised by a pensioner asking him why he allows abuse towards his wife he has completely distanced himself (run away and hid under a table) from trying to be balanced (he was once honest).
One who is so convinced he actually now has power he does nothing but copy n paste graphs literally nobody is interested in and deletes any kind of reasonable comment on any pdc thread while letting anything go on bdo ones.
One who just sit's on Whinges lap jumping to any command by the master.

The point is, this place has been slowly dying, the players have all left and the genuine intelligent discourse has gone too, this entire forum is now purely a hate platform for those who loath the BDO, no need to take my word for it just look at any thread, they all descend (or begin as) into BDO hatred.
It's sad, RIP.

Nikkiboy let it happen

We all know the BDO is in dire straits so why the constant need to highlight that , no constructive debate on how they can improve , used to enjoy the debates on here ....but that is a rarity nowadays as debates rarely occur .

That's an interesting position to take considering you spent yesterday begging Egerton to ban Devo and Sparky for having the temerity to disagree with you

Not highlighting it was what allowed the Williams' to get away with it for years. They relied on the apathy and the head-burying to allow their incompetence to go unquestioned.

Let's go back to those good old days, eh ?

I wish people would stop going on about how bad Pol Pot was, yes we know he killed millions of his own citizens but do we really need to bring it up again?
