Sorry Pete. You are right. If you could please delete my last two posts I’d be most grateful. Thank you.

Solari, you probably should've private messaged Rob instead of complaining about your ban in this thread, but what's done is done I guess.

I’m finding the forum to be so negative at the moment – it seems absolutely everything can be spun into something to be miserable about. It’s not just ‘I don’t like this’, it’s the extremity of it all. From Red Nose Day to the Channel 4 News Leeds set to the (intentionally staggered) rollout of the BBC logo – it’s just out and out whining. It’s quite a drag reading it.

I dread to ask but how many of those are from Brekkie and JK1985?

I don't really understand why JK1985 watches Saturday Night Takeaway, he clearly doesn't enjoy it.

Nice for the news of BBC Four's possible axing to give us a return of the 'fantasy BBC management' thread that we all know and love. Honestly amazes me the number of members with seemingly no understanding whatsoever of how broadcasting or the BBC actually works and an inability to see beyond 'they should get rid of the services I don't use'.

The thread got bumped from January with no news and has turned into an echo chamber

Can’t say I’m massively interested in it but it’s a valid discussion surely given budget issues facing the BBC? Agree it’s repetitive but, I dunno, just avoid it?
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.

I have to say it becoming rather disconcerting in that "BBC 4 could axe" thread about the continual back tracking to CBBC and Cbbiees merger. Either certain members are so idiotic that there blinded by simple facts or there just so Snotty.

Why need them if you have internet.... WHAT ABOUT THOSE THAT DON'T?

Child poverty is sky rocketing, young families can even heat homes yet there going to have money spare for internet? Or if they do, I doubt they will have enough data to get episode of Hey duggie, before wiping out their months uses.

I did raise this same point, with the closure of BBC3.

People really need to get there heads out of there backsides. liner channels have an extremely important part to play for the BBC for many many years to come. Sky don't care about cutting back on channels because if people can afford SKY tv they will be able to afford via another means ie web or beaned right in to there heads.

This doesn't feel like an argument for Metropol, but for those in receipt of Universal Credit BT offer a package with 35Mbps broadband for £15/month including 600 mins worth of calls. That's £1.75/month more than the license fee.

Surely, if cost cutting is your aim, losing access to linear TV and the BBC is lower hanging fruit than losing your ability to communicate with the outside world without leaving your home.
