Unproductive and tiresome

Two words that describe which community forum?

Re: Unproductive and tiresome

Err..

 

Vision?

 

Like just now. A fellow user specifically asked me for a reply and BLAM! There was another, butting in 'Well if you ask me...'

 

Arrgh! Nooooo! The user wasn't asking you. He was asking me!

 

It's getting ridiculous now.

 

And it's getting in the way of positive community communication.

Re: Unproductive and tiresome

Yea i see what you mean, people jumping on the bandwagon when something bad is mentioned about a B.T product and the someone trying to give back some constructive feedback can sometimes be rendered useless.

It's a horrendous forum. I never visit it now, full of bashers.

To be fair though, it is only a minority of users.

 

Do you (meaning anyone) want to either criticise or support a particular subject or situation? Fine.  And thats one of the purposes of a forum.

 

Indeed, the above is one of the foundation stones a forum is based upon.

 

But there are ways and means of doing it.

 

Agreement or disagreement, in a discussion/debate, problem and help solving and learning new information that helps both the thread OP and other users that read said thread. Thats what this forum is all about. And...

 

All forums should also be about respect.

O of course, i absolutely agree, a forum is about voicing your opinion about something but some people forget to do it in a  constructive manner. The regular posters of the forum handles these very well when people start bashing a thread if they have the same problem.

 

Sometimes, the OP's problem could get undermined if people are persistent in complaining rather than seeking help.

Re: Unproductive and tiresome

The forum ethos is: "This is where customers help other customers get the most out of their BT products and services."

 

The continued and repeated epic whining by the same few users about the same topics often using the same words helps no one and just clutters up what used to be a genuinely productive environment with so much drivel. I've started just not bothering to read posts by certain users as you can pretty much guarantee they're just the same old line of cack.

 

To the whingers I'd just like to say this. There are few on these forums who are hard of learning, so once you've said your piece how's about you do us all a favour and drop it and move on. Continued repetition is neither necessary nor helpful.
