“Once a great forum but the admin killed it ”

Written on: 01/05/2020 by McFarlandju353 (1 review written)

Unless you have the same views as the admin ( as far left as it's possible to be) then don't bother joining. It's full of so-called woke people shutting others down. I have always considered myself a leftie, live and let live and I might not agree with what you say but I will fight for your right to say it, kind of leftie But I'm considered rightwing on digitalspy these days, how crazy is that. those in favour are allowed to even make death threats to politicians, women and anyone else… Read Full Review

“The forums are quickly turning into a 'woke' hell-hole.”

Written on: 08/03/2020 by GlibletOSullivan (1 review written)

I was a regular contributor to the Digital Spy forums for five reasonably happy years until this week. Politics Forum aside (it's always been a cesspit whatever your persuasion), the DS forums were once a nice enough place with friendly posters. I had made many virtual friends there over the years. Now, all that has changed. While it was always a tricky place to navigate 'socio-politically', a draconian veil of censorship has been slowly descending on the forums over the last six months or so… Read Full Review

“Cesspool of extremists”

Written on: 17/07/2019

Ok I joined DS just over ten years this year, when I first joined it was a great fun place and discussions were very pro active. And all replies were positive and pleasant But over the last few years the tone and attitudes have become very aggressive. There is a clique of online trolls and abusive posters who see out every day to stamp on any question or statement they don't agree with. The moderators are also amongst this lot, After I received a warning for giving my view about a tv… Read Full Review

“Gotten so much worse.”

Written on: 12/06/2019 by 90Jamison (1 review written)

Posted at this forum for over ten years. Had it's ups and down but the past few years have seen it become a clique ridden vipers nest. Certain political/ideological topics are policed by SJW's waiting to bait, troll and report. Bannings are partisan and arbitrary.Go there if you like arguing with strident obnoxious loud mouths and virtue signallers, look elsewhere for actual intelligent discussion… Read Full Review

“Site could be great but it is let down by terrible modding”

Written on: 29/05/2019 by Pip21 (2 reviews written)

This could be a great site - with penty of opportunity to discuss non entertainment topics including a useful advice section. But it is spoiled by 'un-evenhanded' and inconsistent modding. It seem that people left of centre can post pages of bile, insulting anyone of a particular view, but dare to challenge the insults and you'll get a ban! Don't even dare to argue pro Brexit, you'll get called all sorts but nothing will happen to the posters. On the contrary, it's you who will get a rap over… Read Full Review

“Banned after 17 years.”

Written on: 13/08/2018 by Caylee133 (1 review written)

So my life on Digital Spy came to a close this past weekend, banned without warning. Only ever had a couple of really minor one day bans and they were years ago. Been on the forums of Digital Spy since November 2001 and had 43,554 posts. I got locked out of my account for good and not even told why, until I asked. Shouldn't they have told me first? I was told I could no longer refer to others in the politics area as 'remoaners' and that I'd used the term excessively and for nothing more than… Read Full Review

Monkeybiscuits's Comment

Written on: 02/11/2018

Being a "remoaner" myself, I don't see that even remotely as a bannable offence. I have too recently been banned after 12 years on. Simply for disagreeing with some of the more extreme politically correct opinions. There is no doubt I had people after me for disagreeing with them, but the mods were quick to drop the hammer.

“Extremely poor moderation and some truly awful posters”

Written on: 13/08/2018 by ahmedfoley (1 review written)

The digitalspy forums have always been a strange place where normal people have to carefully navigate the trolls, weirdos, bedroom dwellers, gay mafia and other miscreants who infest the place. The moderators were always quick to dole out bans and suspensions, often for little more than a jokey comment or a bit of banter, all under the banner of "disrespect". More recently, there seemed to be a change of policy, for the worse. Now, the moderators wade in and ban posters based on their own… Read Full Review

“Extremely heavy handed and biased moderation”

Written on: 11/08/2018 by KevinSpivey (1 review written)

I was recently permabanned from DS for simply giving an opinion on racism which was not in accord with the moderation team's personal view of racism. Their rules state you can express disagreement, but this is manifestly not the case. In fact the community guidelines don't reflect the actuality of moderation. So if you adhere to them, you can still be permabanned, seemingly dependent on the personal political viewpoint of the mod concerned. So many old established members with many thousands… Read Full Review

“rubbish and banned for nothing”

Written on: 25/06/2018 by IvanOlson405 (1 review written)

I wouldn't recommend the site its infested with trolls and they seem to get away with murder. I do often think the mods have their own profiles on there posting, also seems there is a lot of 'cliques' that are favourites. I was banned the other day for supposedly being racist for asking if Alan Sugar Tweet was intended as racist or just a silly joke that backfired. Of course the mods branded me as playing down racism and condoning it when actually all I did was question a tweet! they deleted a… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2017 by ChampionDan (1 review written)

I sighed when I saw an actual named user of the Digital Spy Forums on a previous post here from CaleGrace. That feminazi leaves a great deal to be desired. She's constantly getting guys, never women, kicked off the forums either temporary or permanent. Even saw her brag about some of them. I know of at least three permanent bans at her hands. Some good ones have been lost down to her crazy antics. I question her own authenticity. Digital Spy has an increasing number of idiots trolling their… Read Full Review

“Decent enough site but trolls ruin it”

Written on: 03/12/2016 by Fowlerpj424 (1 review written)

I'd agree with the reviewer CaleGrace. I've seen first hand how this particular user operates, and manipulates opinion along with a host of other obnoxious characters obviously connected to the user in order to further their own narcissistic self-promotion and sense of moral superiority. Frequent baiting occurs to targeted users, with a direct intention to get the person who rises to the bait banned or to wear them down. If challenged on their behaviour, I've witnessed on the forum (at it's… Read Full Review

“Tedious Trolls”

Written on: 26/11/2016 by CaleGrace (1 review written)

Digital Spy is a great site for music and politics lovers especially. Most are friendly and very knowledgeable. The old TOTP music discussions are a joy to indulge. However there is a serious troll issue. Even on a great thread they exist. People get targeted by sad individuals for zero reason. A user named LittleGirlOf7 proves to be a serious pain in the backside to many on DS who she targets. The baiting just has to be read to be believed at times. The restraint some of those forum members… Read Full Review

“Abusive”

Written on: 08/10/2016 by TipTop3 (1 review written)

Digital spy appears to have administrators who join in discussions, and then abuse, rile, goad, insult and even stalk and troll people's reasonable views that they don't agree with. They are like fascists, heavy handed thugs. Steer clear of that site if you want a reasonable discussion on the I net. Reasonable views, and reasonable people get bullied off threads by the so called administrators, whose behaviour borders on criminal. If a poster responds to the threats and stands up for… Read Full Review

“Abuse and trolling”

Written on: 21/02/2016 by Cruz324 (1 review written)

So called moderators allow posters to be abused and trolled, and when a poster responds, the poster is banned. Moderators appear to regularly bait, rile and goad any user whose views they don't agree with. The site appears to be run by heavy handed fascists. Avoid at all costs… Read Full Review

“Moderation Madness”

Written on: 01/11/2015 by Heimiswil (1 review written)

If i could have given Digital Spy zero rating i would. As it is you have to give one star but that = "Terrible" which is an understatement. The moderation is unbelievably heavy handed with fm's being banned for the most pathetic reasons. Once you hit a 2 week ban, the next is a 'perma ban'. Very easy as DS is full of SJW's and keyboard warriors only to ready to single out any poster daring to express a differing opinion and they will bait like fury in an attempt to get you banned.

“The nadir of internet forums”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by flibble69 (1 review written)

This forum is full of inveterate little snivellers who go blubbing to the moderators at every opportunity, and the moderators, being the Stasi wannabees that they are, are only to happy to indulge them. I got banned for pointing out to one of the more notorious peons that they were being inconsistent. The fact that I provided two quotes from said peon that proved they were being inconsistent and didn't say anything even remotely insulting to them was neither here nor there. As said peon posts… Read Full Review

“Signup via Facebook”

Written on: 02/02/2015 by McLain30 (1 review written)

Not sure how long it's been going for, but you can sign up to DS forum with a Facebook account as well as through their own site. I did it, got banned, and tried again but to avail. I changed IP address but still quite puzzled as to how they've latched on to things. The change in IP address is not from a proxy server; it's from the actual broadband supplier. I know DS has the tools to see if a new sign up's using a proxy but can't see why they won't let someone sign up using a non-proxy… Read Full Review

Yeah, you can bypass it by using a proper form that isn't moderated by the Stazi.

“Utter cesspool”

Written on: 12/01/2015 by 22Howe (1 review written)

What kind of dweeb sits watching TV with their tablet next to them so they can post their thoughts (if you can call them that) online the very instant they have them? The kind of dweeb that belongs to Digital Spy, that's what. For those of us who prefer to concentrate on what we're watching and then talk about it afterwards, this forum is a complete waste of time. Threads are full of meaningless drivel like "I can't believe she said that" or "What did he do that for?" - if you're not actually… Read Full Review

If you've still got your account then feel free to let me know the details... I can then start posting again - or if DS are still what they are like when I made my review, they'll ban me again.
