it's times like these you appreciate DiS
this is the only message board i use.
it's an irish message board for everything and anything
moderators are real reactionaries
The other forum I use regularly would give you a black mark for insulting another member and a temporary ban after you got three black marks. I think a second ban is permanent.
It's a fairly sensible system if you've got a big forum with a wide spread of people from different backgrounds. On a youthful, fairly similar forum like this responding to people with 'you're a moron' is generally taken in everyone's stride; when you've got people like your mum on there too they'd probably rather people were generally a little more polite...
has everyone got a secondary board other than me, c_c_b and gowman?
I'm tasking you two with finding a secondary board for us. Go!
it was just handy for certain stuff that you wouldn't really post on here
Because I used to be big into DVD 5 years back. And it was invaluable for finding out about the films coming out and stuff.
These days I mainly use the General discussion forum and the Computing or Mobile phone forum, but I also like to read the film forum to see what people think of the latest films.
You've got 40,000 members or something, lots of them mature home owners, so if you have a query about something domestic or generally about mobile phone contracts, etc. you'll get a lot of different and comprehensive responses.
the thing that pissed me off was that it's ok to make fun of tragedies and dead people and make child abuse jokes, but as soon as you call someone a moron you're gone..and he was acting the moron,it's not like i was being harsh
i feel betrayed. which ones?
You knobcheese dining, cuntfaced MORON.
(Safety winks all round.)
My arm's giving me jip.
If DiS finished I don't think I'd go looking for another message board, do people really need it that much?
As it is this place isn't particularly comprehensive.
it must make reviewers try to write better if they know us lot are going to be jumping on the slightest mistake they make and ripping the piss out of them.
Not meant as a dig because it's probably a struggle to keep the site going at all given the collapse of the BSkyB deal and the general economic/music climate, but the editorial content has gone way downhill in the last year or so. I came for the Mike Diver reviews/features, I stayed for the board.
You can say 'cunt' and everything.
a Manic Street Preachers messageboard
he loves it when i bring this up
