i thought the whole idea of this place was that it could be democratic? was i deluding myself?
it appears that one person - who no matter how funny his posts are - they can still be as utter shite (in an amusing way) just like the nubes can post utter shite - and it's okay - but a few nubes (who we all have the right to ignore) do it to up their count and wham!!!
so Fatty says "let's get rid of post count" (which i agree with) and "get rid of the html" (which i don't agree with) - and hey-presto it happens - this is undemocratic and unfair - surely it can be possible to ban users who abuse the html rather than blanket ban its use?
i'll tell you something for nothing - i quite liked using colour - and it did no harm
1. it brightened the place up
2. it was easier to find my own last reply to a thread - which in here is sometimes very useful
but here goes my twopenneth worth....i've tried to be a good Zoner - even going so far as to distribute quite a few BoRhap Story DVDs worldwide before Christmas (at my own cost)...but if this is the way things are to be in here from now on then i'll think twice before spending my own money to ensure people who can't get BBCTV get a copy of a DVD....oh and by the way - if you really don't like democracy around here go ahead ban me. I've broken no rules in here...i don't offend anyone - and i am happy to bow to greater knowledge on any issue...but this one stinks
whatever next? give us all numbers and ban the use of names? after that where does it end? people from europe can post on Mondays weds and Fris the rest of the world get tues, thurs and Saturdays - this all is some sad sick joke
Colour does not hurt - it's what makes the world a beautiful place...if you can't find a way to allow it's use and just ban the abusers then there is something sadly wrong....and this place clearly is not the free-thinking-liberated-open-minded forum (oh yes Forum - you know what forums are for - self expression)- that it claims to be!!!
still it's okay if you're Fatty - click your fingers and make three wishes mate (no offence)
i fully expect my use of free speech (or disagreeing with a deity - or whatever the FatOne is) will get me a ban - so to all those who agreed but were too frightened to speak out against the tide of Godness (Deities) - I tried fellas, don't expect i'll see you around as my login will be banned after this

I'll give this some thought. But - people have to stop using those scrolling text things!!!! They totally suck.
Yeah those scrolling text things are bloody annoying. At least we now have colour. Thanks Richard. Also taking away the post counts has actually stopped people sending annoying rubbish all the time. Thanks again Richard.
