I wonder if they're the same person as human nature on Digitalspy and AV Forums... nearly every time someone critisises the BBC, they almost immediately appear to defend them, even if it's a thread that's been running for months, or sometimes years, that they'd never posted in before. It's bizarre, as if they're monitoring everything posted on both forums all day every day ready to spring into action as soon as anything remotely critical of the BBC appears.

I just received a warning for trying to 'bypass the character limit' in the Eurovision thread. I said all i needed to say in that short sentence so why is the board throwing a strop because i typed '30 character limit' so i could post what i wanted?

Your message didn't really add much tho did it? It's meant to be a discussion board.

It was a comment adding to the reaction of zero points from the public vote. Is that not what they were discussing?

Are you thinking of Carl Waring? I don't think it's him. Cando I think is in the industry.

It does seem a bit uncanny, doesn't it? Like there's this guardian angel for the BBC lurking in the forums, ready to swoop in whenever it's under fire. Whether it's the same person or just a bunch of super fans, they sure know how to defend their turf! XD

I posted in the BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire news thread with a link about one of the weather presenters quitting Look North. They deleted it and gave me a warning, and then someone else posted the same news with no source or comment. Needless to say, I reported the new post too - if I deserved a warning, they definitely did. At least I posted a source. You'd think I'd posted a spam link, but it was definitely on topic.

That post has now been deleted as well.
