Don't criticise tuesday treats or the man will delete you!
The stuff you’re giving away for free isn’t up to the standards I demand! I want something better
Nope…. Can’t see why they’ve an issue
Did you used to have the same problem with birthday presents from your parents if they weren’t deemed acceptable?Posted 4 years agoflangeSubscriber
Rmember these two facts: The customer is always right; and it takes a long time to build a reputation, but only a short time to lose it.
Bollocks! I actually admire them more for saying a big F-off and giving him his money back. If he’s going to be a ****t about things then I think they’re taking the right stance.Posted 4 years agoWooksterSubscriber
I wouldn’t slate the prize to be fair, if you don’t rate it don’t enter, but why slag it off on the fourm?
Im not sure that banning people and chucking their money back at them is a good way to deal with it either though??
I judge their comments posted on our site to be rude and unfair. The response we received above just convinced me that it’s for the best if both parties go their own ways.
Actually fair enough.Posted 4 years agowwaswasSubscriber
I’ve always tended to take the view that comments in the ‘editorial’ side of the site need to be self moderated much more than those in the forum.
To use a pub analogy, you *might* get away with slagging off the landlord’s wife sat at your table but it’s probably best to avoid doing it at the bar where the landlord can hear you.Posted 4 years ago
This thread will likely get closed at some point as it’s pretty negative all round. But I didn’t want anyone thinking we’d got anything to hide here. I stand by the decision. Knowing how much work goes in to these competition stories, both on our side at Singletrack and on the part of the LBS involved each week I reserve the right to choose who we do custom with where I judge their comments posted on our site to be rude and unfair.

if a pub offers free beer, and someone, who’s mate bought him a drink, starts shouting round and outside the pub how ‘lame’ the free beer is, how long will the landlord/owner/resident grumpy put up with it?Posted 4 years agomaxtorqueMember
If the OP had just emailed STW with the opinion that the “prizes” were, he thought, “getting a bit lame” then fair enough. But to leave a completely negative personal opinion on the front page comments of the article was a bit silly, IMO 😉
Have a quiet word/discussion by all means, but moan in the comments, nah, i don’t think so. I’m with STW on this one……..Posted 4 years ago
