    Exclamation Thank You for your continued support

    I have just read something from Debbie Flint on her Back to You Facebook Group (which I am now banned from) that has made me want to write this quick message.

    This site started as a fan site back in 2001, how ironic that this site started because of Debbie Flint, I started the site as I was annoyed that presenters just vanished from channels without any warning or goodbye, so I started the site just after Debbie Flint vanished from Ideal World.



    To read that I only have members who are banned from elsewhere is just wrong, maybe we have some members who are Banned from the "Back to You" group, lets face it if you don't think QVC is perfect then your out!



    She say's "Anything Really Contentious is being reported to the correct authorities", well the correct thing to do would be to report the post to me, let me take a look at it and remove it within a reasonable amount of time, that is what is expected of forums and we are no different.

    To get emails in the early hours of the morning from Debbie, saying she has been told this and that and I should remove, I assume someone from the "Back to You" group sends things to her while she is at work. I ask her to let me know the link and she has no idea. I can only act if I know what I have done wrong.

    Got an email from Debbie earlier this year:

    "There's a big libel drive at the moment with lots of 'ambulance chasers' after making money sueing the trolls who libel people online. I thought of you when i heard this, since as you know i've always had your back as much as i can."

    Advising her group members to take screen grabs sounds like a stab in the back rather thank having my back.

    Thank You to everyone who has supported this site since 2001, we celebrate our 15th Birthday next March and it is because of your support.

    Finally thank you to Sazza who I believe is the best moderator in the business.

    I am all for freedom of speech, whether I necessarily agree with what I read or not, I will always respect the person's right to say it. And let's just remember this is just shopping for goodness sake! The main objections I have about the Back to You site are that members are threatened with being banned if they post anything deemed (by Debbie or Sharon) as being negative ANYWHERE else, so that would include on here, on Twitter, the main QVC Facebook page etc. To me that is censorship gone crazy, (remember these are people only chatting about shopping! ). Debbie also asks BTY members to post en masse to say they like something such as WEN on the main QVC page. I prefer to post what I want, when I want, with nobody else telling me what to say or do. Somehow I think Debbie picked up too many bad habbits when out in China...

    Take no notice Graham jealousy is a terrible thing, she can't help herself because your site is fun, informative and honest were as the BTY is....erm....is....the BTY group. For the record though I, along with most other members, haven't been banned from anywhere, after all why pick cotton when you've got silk right here. Thanks for a great site Graham, keep up the great work.

    Same here,I choose to post here because it feels fun and a safe place to spend time .I have never been banned from anywhere and have no interest in joining any groups that are heavily censored and full of yes people. Sounds like the fact this site can't be controlled is getting to some one !

    I'm with you. I've never been banned from any site, I've never posted 'vitriol' and I love this site. It gives honest feedback and reviews, but best of all gives me advanced notice of TSVs. I have found out about TSVs I would otherwise have missed, it lets me think about it and buy to keep, rather than impulse buy and return. I've just, for example, seen the post for a Lulu Guinness TSV in December. It's a pricey month, but now I have seen it in advance I can keep some money aside this month as well as next so I can get it. The preview from this site had guaranteed them another sale. Surely that's a win/win!

    Apart from FB,this is the only forum I belong to.Although I don't post much,I've been here since 2004.
    And I've never been banned from anywhere.It seems to me that DF is only happy when she is totally in control,so totally jealous of this site.
    Carry on Graham,you must be doing something right to put her back up so much x

    Perhaps if she spent her time and influence addressing the issues we all have with Q and their current practices rather than issuing rants we just might have a modicum of respect for them.

    Surely any genuine disputes with this forum should come from the management not from one jumped up presenter?

    At the risk of being sued for libel, it is my opinion that Del Boy is a diva and surrounds herself with sycophants. She is demonising anyone who doesn't conform. I really enjoy this forum as we can express our opinions freely. What an obnoxious woman she is ��
