“The best for what it does”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by RiderRider (1 review written)

All these negative reviews are from people who simply could or would not follow the rules they agreed to when they signed up. It's normal for door-slammers to get themselves banned and give a biased side of the story about why it happened whilst the rest of us enjoy using the site. It's pretty easy, if you can't stick by the rules, find another site. If you argue with the mods in public (which you know is against their T&Cs) don't complain if you get banned. A great site for information and… Read Full Review

“A nasty, arrogant and hostile place.”

Written on: 25/05/2014 by TeaganSkinner414 (1 review written)

I was only a lurker on cableforum as it would be impossible to have an adult convo there, but cant even stomach that anymore. The owners (there looks to be more than one) talk to people like something under their shoes (they have amended the rules so that the owners are exempt from the foruml rules) The mods are vindictive, rude and unprofessional, one has ADHD which obviously clouds his reasoning as he is always stirring and baiting (but he's not the only mod to do this as one has had some of… Read Full Review

“Hostile”

Written on: 01/07/2013

Hostile place, keep away! Many members have been on the forum for years and now act as if the board is there just for them and their close knit group. Moderators allow these members to attack others over a simple difference in view… Read Full Review

“Bad moderating but ok for resolving virgin broadband...”

Written on: 07/06/2013 by PickledMickle (1 review written)

This site will get you faster answers to your questions than the official virgin forum. The technical posters will give you good information compared to the lip service offered by the official channels. However, beyond this the forum is stuck in the dark ages. Unless you are willing to give your blood and swear allegiance to virgin media and never speak of another isp, give this cult-like forum a miss. The moderating is extremely bad on this forum and lo and behold anyone who dares to… Read Full Review

“Very poor moderation”

Written on: 09/04/2012 by Mactire41 (1 review written)

Undoubtedly a great forum for technical assistance. But forget voicing your opinions on the forum if they go against what the Moderators believe. Made up of a team of ridiculously pedantic and condescending egotists. I'll leave them to themselves. View the forums by all means for techy assistance.. but speak out loud and thou shalt be stoned until dead. Pathetic… Read Full Review

Mandymoo2's Response to Mactire41's Review

Written on: 16/02/2013

My experience with the forum was similar.

There are techy people there who can answer questions which have a factual answer but anything else is going to have a virgin bias to it. Mention something bad about virgin and straight away they attack virgin and the poster.

Do not go to the site if you want a truthful unbiased opinion.

Written on: 31/10/2010

I think it's a fantastic site, don't know what the other 2 reviewers are on about, I can only assume they simply couldn't or wouldn't stick by the rules. I've been using the site for 4 years and none of the mods are over 50. A great help site, they sorted my BB problem out when VM didn't give a toss. Plenty of people with different skills and abilities… Read Full Review

Terrible mods. The majority are 50+ power happy toss pots. Editing and erasing willy nilly. The sooner they realise they have been given a Mod title to get them to do something for free the better for all… Read Full Review

“I was suspended from posting after a dispute over a...”

Written on: 14/03/2007 by chrishoggy (2 reviews written)

I was suspended from posting after a dispute over a link I posted. The link was to a directory of internet TV channels wwitv.com . This web TV directory has been established for over 10 years, and is a fully legal site that has the full cooperation of the channels it links to. I was eventually banned from the site after re-registering in order to try and defend myself/question their decision. It seems the moderation team will not listen to reason, and delete all content that questions their… Read Full Review

Mintz's Response to chrishoggy's Review

Written on: 09/04/2007

I have read your review chrishoggy and you were rightfully banned for publicly bringing the forums into disrepute. It is not right for members of a forum to argue and question the people who run it, use of any forum is a privilege and not a right, some people seem to forget this. I have been to the website in question and having read their terms and conditions, they do have an appeal process, you appear not to of appealed through the proper channels and I do not blame any moderator banning someone for arguing with them publicly like that. You should of discussed the matter in private with them.
<br/>
<br/>But thanks for providing the link to this forum, It looks like a good forum, think I might register.

Mintz's Response to chrishoggy's Review

Written on: 13/04/2007

I am sorry but nothing you have said makes me think otherwise. You were rightfully banned. You did not go through the proper appeal process, you started to publicly argue with them, regardless if you feel you are right or wrong, no moderator or forum owner is going to allow for someone to start arguing with the moderators like that publicly and if you are a moderator yourself, you will know that you are not there to justify your decisions to anybody. You also seem to forget that a moderator has every right to move or delete anything with or without an explanation their terms and conditions also points this out.
<br/>
<br/>I&#039;ve been registered on this forum a few days now and I think its a great forum and I have no issues with any of the moderators but then again, I haven&#039;t started to argue with them over any decisions they had made. This is where you got off on the wrong footing.

Chrishoggy's Response to chrishoggy's Review

Written on: 11/04/2007

Although I agree with your comment about "use of any forum is a privilege and not a right" , these are "public" discussion boards. I do fully understand how these things work as I moderate on several forums, as well as running my own sites and forums. Your comment that I was banned for "publicly bringing the forums into disrepute" is a little bizarre, and untrue. There was no "public" argument, no flaming, or posting of any banned content. Written proof (from the owner of wwitv.com) that the link I posted was legal and complied with all known laws, was not enough for them. Like I said in my review, the moderation team are either misinformed on the legalities of web TV broadcasts, or they are instructed to remove links to them (something not mentioned in their terms). Yes the terms state there is a right of appeal , but in reality this right does not exist (as I found out). Moderators should not act on personal opinions on matters relating to legality of posts, they should act on the T&C of the site and facts. If they are unable to to this, then they are not acting in the best interests of the board they are moderating.
<br/>I and many 1000&#039;s of others find this site very useful and informative. But in my opinion, the site is lacking in it&#039;s appeals, knowledge base (used for moderating) and moderating system as a whole.
