DCUK AKA The Forum of Flog owner says "you need to listen to others"

When you have hung around the diabetes forum, also known as the forum of flog, you get to see it all over the years. Every form of human life has passed through its doors. From highly educated and knowledgeable diabetics (most have left) to a qualified medical Doctor moderator (long gone). We have seen obvious wind up artistes protected by moronic mods and we have seen Stalinist mods banned for banning Doctors. In short, its best described as a sort of Monty Python's Flying Circus of the diabetes world. Highly amusing at times but not to be taken too seriously. The place claims to have over 160,000 members, but long time observers know only a tiny fraction of that number have stayed, or post on a regular basis.

One thing the flog could never ever be accused of is listening to it’s members. For years the slightest criticism of the management, moderators or members known as “the protected ones” has almost universally lead to banning, thread locking and post deletion. That being said, I was aghast, nay, poleaxed, to read today this statement from the forum owner. “It’s key to remember you need to listen to others” I believe I can truly say I have seen it all regarding the flog, but I have thought that before. Clearly at the “gullible diabetes community” there is no limit to the lunacy and Chutzpah. I find myself asking, has Mr. Panesar ever taken the time to have a look at his forum and if so, is he ever going to start listening to his forum members.

Listening is the active process of receiving and responding to spoken and sometimes unspoken messages. Maybe someone should try and explain this to Mr Panesar.

Maybe Mr Panesar doesn't even bother to have a look at the Forum. His bank balance maybe but not the forum.
