That's just the way it is.

    I'm more suspicious when I see nothing but praise and people saying RocksTV can do no wrong because quite clearly it's not a balanced picture. There will ALWAYS be happy and unhappy customers. That's life. If people only want to see the good side of things then how will they know if the piece they're buying is good value or whether there have been problems with it during manufacture etc etc?

    ps. Gemdreamer - I know that there are a couple of names on RocksTV that are nothing to do with posters on here. There's a person on RocksTV called Calico but it's not the Calico on here and there are others so it can be a bit confusing.
    you are exactly right Meeshoo i am less of a newby now but since joining i have taken the time to read former threads no company can expect 100% positive feedbacks that would be stupid but i do think that it is the personal attacks that have got peope riled, our like or dislikesfor a particular presenter is not what we are on here for , to disguss problems and help others with those problems to show what we have bought but too attack someone cause you dont like their nails or their hair or laugh is not on they have feelings as well and although they are in the lime light noone should have to put up with that.Noone has the right to do that to a fellow human being .there are people on tv i cannot stand so i turn off or over when they come on

    Blinglover I agree. My only hesitation is that presenters do put themselves in the spotlight. It's us the general public who have to look at them and they're on air to sell to us so feedback would inevitably also come from us. So if their personal appearance leaves a bit to be desired or they try to "blag" by using dreadful sales techniques then I do feel that criticism is called for.

    HOWEVER, I would prefer to see constructive criticism. A good example of this is Lucy on GemsTV. Each time there's a post about her, virtually everybody says that her shouting and yelling isn't pleasant and most people turn over or watch with the sound down. Now that can't make for good sales and if I were GemsTV I think (if enough people were saying the same), I'd be inclined to speak to the presenter and ask them to tone it down a bit.

    I have to say that the amount of "presenter bashing" has been unwarranted just recently and took over the forum for a while. It didn't make pleasant reading on occasion. Happily it seems to have calmed down a bit - fingers crossed!

    I wasn't suggesting that every thread here is negative or based on untruths, but sadly the majority recently have been. I am not referring to those posted by those who have had a genuine customer issue with Rocks, eg stones falling out or problems with delivery, these of course need to be aired and viewed so that it is transparent for all to see what problems occur and how they are dealt with, whether that customer experience is positive or negative.





    Some of the people on the chat have had experiences on ST that have left a bad taste in their mouth and they have vocalised that. They have not necessarily been members here, but threads here have affected them none the less. To suggest that they shouldn't when a number of old threads here have been about individuals bidding and purchasing habits, and what people choose to speak about in chat is a little unfair on them. Freedom of speech goes both ways.

    Nothing as far as I can see has happened on shoppingtelly.com that would leave a bad taste in anyone who uses Rocks Chat, unless they just believe one side of the story.

    Graham, I refer to the thread that discussed the chat room on Rocks. I know from emails my wife has shown me that that thread in particular did, in fact, upset a number of people who are not ST members as they felt singled out by it. These people read the thread for themselves so couldn't have been swayed by a single persons opinion or description.

    Sheffield Owl I hope you don't mind me also pointing out that some vile and horrible things have been said about ST/ST members on Chat? Only tonight, for the brief 5 minutes I went and had a look, there was somebody saying that ST was a waste of space etc etc etc. It works both ways.

    I am on Rocks tonight for the first time in an age and in the rocks chat, we have all been hacked off about being bounced when the nice stuff came up - I think that nobody is afraid to say what they like, and that's a good thing!

    Graham, you would need to speak with my wife directly regarding that. The thread to which I am referring was the one that led to the return of the Chit room at rocks. This is the thread she received emails from none members over, and it was closed a long while ago.

    exactly meeshoo.

    also, to sheffieldowl, i know the thread you are refering to, and i can guess which non st members you mean and i can honestly say that i don't recall anything nasty being said about them. If my memory serves me correctly, it was simply stated that an open chat room like rocks chat was perhaps not the place for personal chat about health and other deeply personal topics.
    No one was being cruel, its just that this was when there was only one rocks chat room which could be viewed by everyone who watched rocks online.
