I’ve just been sent this little piece of communication from the “Shoitbox”. I’m guessing here, but I’d say it was all posted at around quarter to four.
<brendan> Such a shame, I’d posted a beautifully vitriolic post that eviscerated Jamo, as well
< Dunk> Ryan and AA both banned. There is an acceptable use policy on the site and has been since day 1. If anyone else wishes to leave, this can be arranged.
<onceared> What was unnacceptable dunk? i dont understand this one sorry!
< CheshireDave> How long they been banned for?
<onceared> I must have missed something in the thread before it was deleted?
< discobiscuit> i don;t even know what as in teh thread
<onceared> Some posters were laughing because traore hasgone, andsome were sticking up for him. i didnt see the controversy bit though?
<kingFowl> CD : wats the time over there
< CheshireDave> Thats all I saw andy, although I looked at it about 15 mins ago, must have been posted since then.
<CheshireDave > 15:45
<Xability> thats amazing, it is also 15.45 here too
< kingFowl> thanks pal
<onceared> The last post i saw was AA saying i only read the first post!
< onceared> NO WAY!!! Its 15.45 here too!!! *LOOKSSHOCKED*
<Xability> I think it is more to do with the slagging off of the site in the shoutbox » brendan concurs
< CheshireDave> I bet the shoutbox gets disabled soon.
<onceared> Maybe so Xab, but then why was the thread deleted??
< Dunk> nobody likes moderating the forums but there is an Acceptable Use Policy for the benefit of everyone who don’t want to endure peopel wittering on like girls all day
I’ve been told that the thread included some questions about Koptalk or Dunk, and nothing unreasonable. I’ve not seen the thread (or shoutbox entries if that’s what it was) so I can only go off what I’ve been told.
The last three major “incidents” involving Koptalk have all been from his own members. One member sent an email to Ian Cotton at LFC. Another member put some ideas forward relating to trying to get Koptalk back to a site he’d like to continue visiting. The third one was one of his “free” visitors asking questions.
We’ve hardly got time to visit Koptalk ourselves these days. Does the level of concern from so many of his members not raise any concerns for him, or for his other long-term members?
