    DCUK The forum of flog, business as usual.

    Post by Eddie on Mon Oct 12 2015, 12:15

    Just when I was keeping well away from diabetes.co.uk aka The forum of flog aka Panesar's world of fantasy, a member sends me this.


    Let's see how long this post or thread lasts, not very long I'll wager. BTW no reply ever received from the Man with the  Shiny White Teeth re. my second letter  floggingdeadhorse

    I expect he spends more time at the dentist than reading or working on his forum. facepalm

    Link to the flog here  http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/who-is-deleting-editing-posts.85738/

    Yep it'a joy to behold for sure. I reckon Schizophrenia should receive more attention than it does on the list of diabetes complications. If I ever published some of the emails some flog members had sent me there would be a riot. What amazes me, is the fact people know now the flog is beyond reform or redemption, but still keep adding grist to The Shiny White Teeth's coffers.

    Wonder if we will ever see the Mod's name on the post edits, don't think the cherub would be happy with that, though that said if there are no staff showing online when a post is edited or deleted the odds are on it being her  Wink she's is the only hidden lurker among the present mods

    Well that thread lasted longer than I thought. "Forwards is the way" Code for let's get this thread off the front page and into oblivion as fast as possible. Is there a more paranoid and duplicitous forum anywhere on the internet?

    Personally I think there was more potential progress made in that thread than there has been for a long time.  This may or may not be related to Giverny being away on holiday at the moment.

    But the proof of the pudding will have to wait.

    Good idea Rod, maybe while Giv's away someone who can read and write has been on the helm. Rod, we have seen the last load of BS so many times over the years and it comes to zilch. The place is corrupt from the top down FACT.

    Administrator was certainly saying the right things to be fair but the fact Nobhead and CC didn't comment spoke volumes in my opinion. Azure was the only one who seemed to embrace the idea.

    I thought that too Mo...Maybe too arrogant or ashamed to leave a simple,short sentence on the thread...A simple "yes/no I agree/disagree with the members opinions/proposed changes"

    The flog has had some great Mods. Honest, knowledgeable and friendly with a great sense of humour. All realised what went on behind the scenes and walked. The new Mod seems straight to me, but so many have been idiots and out and out liars. Nobhead and the Cherub are just what the owner wants. When someone cannot answer a straight question you always know where you stand. As I have said, the rot flows down from the top!

    Agreed Rod there has been progress made but given past history will it be a case of one step forward and two steps back, Dan the Admin is one of the few at DCUK who has integrity and treats the members fairly unlike some of the admin and mod team that rule the roost

    I take your point about Giverny no doubt she will have her say and things could go back to the status quo but only time will tell.

    Looks like this is one of the changes the extremely obnoxious, spiteful and venomous mod still remains anonymous though

    Yep,those tactics along with the policy which allows the anonymity enjoyed by the mods there only aids and abets any trigger happy mods to show bias and pick on any member they feel fit simply down to diet preferences or connections to people who aren't in their little clique! Why certain members over there can't see the potential for that scenario is a mystery to me.
