Banned From AVForums.
« on: 01 September 2015, 09:14:16 AM »

This situation is ridiculous  in the extreme.

I posted a thread on AVF regarding the new Sony review and how it looks to have trumped the latest range of OLED's without mentioning HDTVtest and received a ban and this message "Diagonal reference to HDTVTest - that was your last chance and you blew it "
As you all know I am entirely independent and have mentioned reviews from sites all over the WWW not just here " although I did not mention by name this site " but it seems this childish attitude is carrying on over there.

I did not want to come on here to complain but felt this situation needs addressing as I am stuck in the middle here.

PS
Another member not me posted a link to the HDTVtest review and no action was taken.

Hey, Bazza, how are you doing? :) Apart from this ridiculous ban, well, I hope? :P

Wow, I find those guys over there really hard to take seriously. What a bunch of childish plebs. Are the forum mods, going around banning like this, the same guys who are doing the reviews..? I posted over in the VT60 owner's thread a few days ago, but only because there doesn't seem to be much of a response to be had here :P I don't mind the nice guys over there, but I'm not a fan of the rest.

Thing is, HDTVtest is such a niche market.................I can not understand why AVF consider it such a massive threat to their reviews.

I also had not posted here for many months and yet still (by them) considered one of the team...........nothing could be further from the truth and the ban was a shock to me, but never mind life goes on and thank fuck my motivation is not money and greed, simply an interest in all things AV and the ability to share any information that might be of interest.
