#46910 Dtv Thread

Posted by PZ. on 08 August 2017 - 11:57 AM

Well I'll just offer a friendly suggestion for anyone reading this... as it appears all content will be migrated to another website it might be prudent to delete any private / sensitive content from your PM system just in case it gets exposed by some unforeseen error. I'm only saying this because according to Whirlpool someone accidentally got someone else's login after they changed servers. How that's possible I don't know hence the warning.


Just a thought.


And here's another one and it's just my view.


The admin said "I trust that you will understand that this decision is for the best long term interests of DTV and StereoNET."


Well not really. I understood the original point of the takeover was to save DTV, not rape it and strip away its identity.


The best long term interest of DTV is to hand it over to someone who actually gives enough of a stuff about its historical content to keep it online as DTV Forum, just like it was for ten years or more. You can just about guarantee that all the bits that gave the site its character including the OT section will eventually disappear with the end result being a larger membership for StereoNet and no trace of DTV whatsoever.


Still, that's council planing and amalgamation for you...

#41071 A New Labor Government

Posted by green guy on 02 December 2014 - 09:22 AM

Congratulations to our new Labor leader Daniel Andrews and thank you Dennis Napthine for your service.

I think the Napthine Government had much merit. Personally I dont have great problems with the East West link but as I always say the public have spoken.

I must say I was surprised how big the swing was.

Brumby was a hard act to follow leaving the state with a triple A rating and to his credit Napthine after the lack luster performance of Ted B showed promise.

There were teething stages with myki and I never understood why they did not choose a model that had been working. Singapore however had much much bigger problems until they finally got it right as did the UK. Bth UK and Singapore ended up with a good system. Having lived in both countries they do have their problems too.

I believe Napthine got the Myki  running well. Well done.

I actually voted Liberals this time but I m impressed with the ideas of the new Government.

The real legacy of Brumby is the desalination plant which will prove a great asset if it is up and running. I believe the latest evidence on climate change ad future droughts is alarming. Dont fall for the lies. The Desal plant if well managed will be a great asset.

I do wish both parties would get together and improve the senate. We are so over these ridiculous parties like the shooters party having power.

Personally I am quite happy to have the Liberals, Nationals Labor and of course my own party The Greens.

WE did very well this round.

I know a couple of the Liberal candidates and they are great friends of mine. They too are thanked for their contribution.

Hi Mello Y.
I guess 8 out of 10 for trying!
I guess I shall just keep trying!




It's hardly worth the effort Peter, basically it was an exercise in cyber trolling - some malicious posters raised personal attacking to an artform - the bulk of forum users let it go unchallenged - moderators stepped in and stopped it by throwing out the baby with the bathwater.


It rates no further investigation.

Hmmmmm, Aloy. . .
How was it possible for a thread DTV cause the moderator any angst?
Surely TV is a non angst subject.

May I plug Melbourne, forget Hk.
No high humidity day and night.
No heat except for a few days in Summer.
Hardly ever rains, bit windy sometimes, mainly by the coast.

#40256 Dtv Thread

Posted by Aloysius on 13 August 2014 - 08:21 AM

Hi Peter,


You want life - that's really great!

 The opportunity to leave behind a dying DTV forum is lovely.


Malcontents are internal parasites, unless treated they lead to disease and death.


I saw some last night on Insight, wisdom and considered opinion being beliittled and sneered at by clever but bigoted extreme people.

Clearly, as some of those present said, it's not an issue of religion that they face, it's an issue of naked power seeking by groups quite happy to use the guise of religion. 


This of course is not new!!!



Oooops got serious there, but you probably understand what I mean.


A minority on the DTV forums behaved badly enough to cause the Moderators to take unnecessarily vigorous action - penalising all to control the few.


Hence the forum refugees that may bring more life to another forum.
