yet again a thread is gone

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you.

Pain in the bottom, having your thread pulled, as far as I know this is not a communist state, or did I miss something?

This isn't a communist state, but it's a privately owned site. ;-)

You have a thread. There's no need to be rude in it though. If you wish you can do that in the chat room where it's not immortalised forever, but people have actually complained about certain posts in those threads.

I'll agree with that but pulling the last thread was uncalled for, as far as I could see nothing got out of hand.

You will speak only in your allocated location.

Should you speak outwith your allocated location your tongue shall be extracted, boiled in a pan, and put on ASDA smart price bread.
It will then be fed to 100 free range pigs.

Fair enough, but we do live in the UK and it's just not the done thing to stop the conversation without a good reason.

ah the killjoys have been out in force again , firstly slowing the server down , now naughty chat or something of that nature( which as a responsible adult I would not even consider in this open forum), or is the fact that some dont have a sense of humour and the fact a few who tended not to get into the inane, worry of rep/no rep/ I want sympathy thread would much prefer the lighter side of life and a way to get to know folk.

Cummon mate, theres more to life, its not like any of us will really meet is it?

And, i recall my nutter thread getting brought down by the killjoys and know it alls - when infact, all the people who slated and tried to correct me where they thought I was wrong, really didnt have the grounds to do so, as theyll have done something wrong on the road at some point - i didnt run off crying to a mod, but i stood my ground.

Theres always going to be moaners in life, so what if people have complained, can the people in the removed threads say they adhered to the T+C's of HUKD?

Can you all just take a minute to think of the mods/admin?
Theres what, probably a total of 10 of them maximum, to deal with how many members? which are all just normal people with busy live's of there own.
Do you really think they want to be logging onto pm's/emails about adult content in a family site?
They probably dont get paid enough to deal with it, and how often do we hear them moan?

All ducky has asked is for the members to keep it clean, and if they cant head over to the independant chatroom.

Alot of people on here clash due to different personalitys, and people being far too opinionated - this week ive logged on quite alot to what i feel is "backing myself up" should i really have to do this?
This week ive been called and idiot, and also been told i dont know what im doing, sorry, none of you actually know me.
And i feel as if i may have come across a little rude this week, which infact im not a rude person, but i dont appreciate logging onto defend myself and my actions, im human, i make mistakes but do i deserve to be called an idiot by people who dont know me?

Think we all need to step back, and remember HUKD is a deals site, and while theres MISC section, theres the chatroom and msn/emails for starters.

Could be someone with a split personality :? :giggle:

So, I assume some adult chat has been going on? I think we should have a scrolling news headline banner which tells us whats happening in the forums that day! Would be interesting!:thinking:

Nope, we don't.

But if we don't then there will be no HotUKDeals at all...

I'm not havin a go at what you do, just pointing it out.

THAts true they don't but the people who post adult don't 'have' to do that and the people who complain don't 'have' to do that either.

However it all happens and some form of moderation is needed. They do their jobs I guess cos the like what they do. I'm also guessing on a saturday night they hae better things to do than pick up toys that arious fractions hae thrown out of prams for vairying reasons. I'm not getting at anyone just trying to see it from all POV.

I think a step back and reality check may work on all sides. Its the internet people... Its not really going to effect your day to day life is it now?

Peace and harmony all round

There are only six Moderators :- Emma, Cat, Ray, Mike, Edi and Ducky.
I've not read the 'spam' posts, so I don't really know what's been happening, but I didn't know they would need 'Policing'. If they did/do then I'm shocked.
IMO the Mods do have a lot to do, even the FS/FT board is getting busy.
I've seen loads of 'complaints' on the Hot Deal forum about duplicate posts, checking and removing takes time.
Give the Mods a break, they don't have to 'Moderate' the boards, but they have been doing it and doing it well long before a lot of us joined HUKD.

Soz, just my two penny worth.

I was going to say 6 mods, but thought that was too low, and id get corrected, so went for 10 to be on the safe side :p
I agree with your points, and ask for the mods to be given a break and a pat on the back.

Hmmm... who would what?

You'll find we have a pretty unique team of people here. You'll notice that Emma, for one, can be online for over 10 hours a day. I've been here 6 hours straight tonight.

We aren't primarily "moderators" to police these threads... I for one am supposed to be the mobile know-how, which probably explains my slow handling of this. I've not looked in the Hot Deals forum once tonight or even started to look for any new phone deals because of all of this.

Don't forget fordy. You don't see him much because he's usually trying to establish bridges between HUKD and your favourite retailers to get us special discounds. e.g. SVP discount and Jessops code!!
