    Over the last few months a continuous un-professional and unjustified tirade of abuse and ridicule has been seen REGRETABLY to be the norm on the majority of Threads & Posts on the Directory Category Section right here on DP

    These abuses have resulted in the loss of some major DP Members who no longer are prepared to participate in DP

    Here is a list of some of many members who visit but no longer post :eek:

    Please note there are many, many more members who have done the same, simply kept away

    Hope to see you ALL back here when the category gets back to being a beneficial resource for all folks interested in the Directory Section here at DP Forum 

    To put pressure which is justified on the TROLLS who frequent this category

    There is an attached Poll :cool:

    If I am not mistaken dvduval made his exit sometime back. The other two got had up by Google for selling PR, have been very busy cleaning out their directories and trying to cushion the fall. Peter I dont know.

    I wouldn't be surprised, there's been lots of 'un-inviting' threads here at DP over the past few months, and I wouldn't be surprised if this kept happening.

    I certainly think it's about time we think how we can make this place more inviting, how to make it user-friendly. DP may be one of the largest boards online, but it may not be the best place to take serious discussions any more. Furthermore, I used to enjoy reading some of the threads that you could find in here, but it all seems to decrease to a 'lower-level'.

    I may be wrong, but I am not looking for a flame-war, just expressing myself. I hope I did not offend anyone - it's not why I am here posting.

    Regards,
    Meti

    I agree as well pete,

    You know what would not be a bad idea, To make one of you guys a mod for this forum , since you guys know it better then anyone....

    Don't you think that is a good idea?

    Pete, I also think that you would be trusted enough by Shawn,

    Maybe we should start a thread in the suggestions forum,

    Well said Pete.

    I should add some others

    Lance - He doenst like it here any more and is an intelligent guy who contributed well.

    others like an0n, dubz, guardian, choice, coolweb arnt interested in this place any more.


    Gone are they days of quality discussion, now its usually a noob asks a question, someone replies, someone doesnt agree with the reply so it turns into a slanging argument which usually ends with another argument about bid directories/link farms/which directory software is best.

    No matter where you go there's always one pain in the butt (or more!). You summed it up well Pete. Those trolls can attack my directory as much as they like. In the end. My directory will be there for the long haul. Just like Pete's and Jeff's and all the other cool directory owners. Thumbs down to the trolls :(

    I don't know what's going on.. and why is it happening, But the truth is the directory section is just turned to a battle place.

    For me.. My personal life is on different mode these days, I am almost exhausted with my daily routine, life is on level extreme for me. I am come online to relax and have some good meaningful discussions and some healthy conversation and chat with friends.

    But seeing the junk and nonsense happening around, it surely gets me pissed off and I wanna stay away and not participate.

    I guess same should be happening with others.

    This is a message for all those members who can't get along with others, I don't have problem with them expressing their opinions. The problem is that take their position to an extreme and keep repeating the same comments in every thread.

    I bet is not going take long to make this thread another example.

    Interesting overall post, i know i have been tied up in a few of those, but don't carry baggage forward hold no issues with those or any people and is old news and like most prefer a good chat based on the subject, and as mentioned with many forums its when the subject turns personal problems arise.

    But up front if in some way my being here is not wanted just give the nod and i'm happy to move on and will opologise for any posts up front before doing so.

    I voted for good constructive posts, but i am unsure if people understand the poll correctly or do not realise its a public poll as we have 6 people who have suggested that trolls should take over, not sure if they undertand the question or if it is what they want ?

    Yes, sad but true. Many people don't visit and many are still here but do not post anymore.
    Few of us are still trying to make things better, but things are going downhill with no chance to prevent that nice way.

    I really tried to explain some essenciall things to these trolls, but looks like there is no help for them. Maybe it is not their fault-maybe they had a unhappy childhood, but the truth is they made this place completely useless.

    I think they broke many forum rules like constant treads hijacking, flaming and abuse. That should be more than enough to get them banned on any forum.

    I would like to thank Creed and others who are still starting some healthy and constructive discussions. Also thanks for starting this tread Pete-this is what all of us think.

    Seems people didnt read the poll question properly

    balkanboy, humm, jg123, scoobby, sundaybrew, Valhalla

    you all voted that you prefer the direcory section to be taken over by trolls

    would you like to change your minds or do you prefer it at the moment with the useless threads?

    The fact is both options are true, but I saw the question after I voted.
    Yes I would choose option 1 for sure if saw the question on time.
