    OMG, that programme was SO weird. I think that's the only programme I've watched from end to end for about 3 months. Technically they call themselves 'Living Dolls' and unsurprisingly they're all men, women don't seen to feel the need to dress up in rubber masks as often as men do. And every time they met somebody, the first thing that person did was check to see how real the boobs were!

    It really remided me of the internet; lot's of people without friends sitting in their rooms making out they're somebody else.

    Yes, that dado rail is horrible. And who has nets without curtains*.

    Mods mod because the hot chicks dig internet mods.

    Still, threatening places like BB on the basis that OT discussions don't contribute is like banning people from pubs for similar banter on the basis that the pub makes no money out of them.

  • Hi all, I'm jumping in here to clarify some things.

    Firstly - yes the BB and CS were set up to cater for more off-topic discussions and the rules around these areas were slightly relaxed to compensate for this. However, it does not mean that they are not governed by Future's T&Cs and when posts/threads break these rules and receive complaints it's the job of the mods to act on them.

    In terms of what helps to develop a community, we've had a number of comments from female members about the intimidating nature of the BB and CS, these areas are open to all and should not be off putting for any of our users. To try and make the environment more welcoming the moderators do have to sometimes intervene with posts that go astray. The BB has a strong group of regulars who post entertaining and witty threads and are generally very good at self-regulating, causing the moderating team little work. However, some times conversations go to far or too astray and need to be reigned in. It's not a case of BB being under threat as it is off topic, we just have to make sure that the off-topic nature of discussions is not excessively alienating/discouraging to other members.

    Over the past 18months we have expanded our moderating team (who are all volunteers) to relieve the workload on long standing mods, so there is noticeably more activity. It is arguably, at present, a frustrating experience visiting the site on an Ipad - but we should hopefully be resolving this problem within the next few weeks...

    Absolutely, we'll make sure Sean doesn't step out of line again and we'll work on his attempts at humour as I know he lets the side down in this respect.
