#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The best long term interest of DTV is to hand it over to someone who actually gives enough of a stuff about its historical content to keep it online as DTV Forum, just like it was for ten years or more.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...

That was a monumental game - no shame on either side IMO - petty criticisms of the man in the middle covered in dirt and racked with fatigue and pain by armchair critics is wearying.


A noble contest should not be reduced to a soap opera by little people.


I was particularly irritated by Andrew Johns (a little man) spray at the NSW team.


hello? they gave it their best shot, they won the first game comprehensively but they were playing against an opposition equally committed to success and equally disappointed with the alternative.


For me Andrew Johns is an excellent example of poor leadership - instead of encouraging, he damns.


I can't imagine how that will encourage those players to lift the huge step they need to be even competitive in the final game.



They deserve better.


This culture of criticism was to be seen after the first game when demands were made to sack the Maroons coach - it's a universal culture. 


Maybe those kinds of critcs should be forced to read their malodorous remarks for the next seven days in the light of the Maroons win under that same coach?

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.

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.
