1. No thread should result in personal insults, either regarding presenters or fellow posters.

2. Continual spamming of opinions, especially opinions moaning about a particular presenter or show, will not be tolerated. This thread is not aimed at descending into the public denigration of respected broadcasters.

3. An intelligent, well thought out discussion is always welcome on this section of the board, so any discussion regarding the bad points of a show/presenter will be appreciated.

4. Any threads/posts removed from this section will only be done so with the utmost consideration, it is not our aim to overly moderate this board, but for the sake of other members we cannot let this board descend into chaos like the BBC boards had a way of doing.

5. Continual breaking of these rules WILL end up in a short term ban.

I think admin's Gripe Rules are fair and for the benefit of this forum.

Admin and I had a short discussion earlier today but the rules were written and posted by Admin without further consultation from me. I accept the rules and, if the majority of the forum also accept them, I will use them as a guide to the Moderation level applied to this forum.

THIS FORUM

The way I see it, there are several other forums, not specific to Radio 2, where spam and abuse about Radio 2 presenters is not modded, that's up to them. THIS FORUM, however, is specific to Radio 2 and includes in its membership some of the station's most ardent fans who have listened for 4 to 40 years, have posted on the official forum for 3 and more years, and have respect for all presenters at the station whether they listen to them or not.

Our friend Admin has offered this site to the R2ok group as a useful place to chat, more user-friendly than the yahoo message board linked with the R2ok website. The R2ok website is developing as a tribute to presenters past and present and if THIS forum is to continue with a strong link to R2ok then respect to presenters is rule number 1.

Radio 2 fan, whatever is on

Who's the man in drag? Confused Oh, Brand Rolling Eyes

I'm still an R2 fan whatever is on. When Evans is bleating I know something better will follow, so I'm still an R2 fan even when he's on Smile

John,

How on Earth can you stomach the puerile nonsense from Evans and Brand? Are you highly intoxicated at the time? That can be the only plausible explanation for you to enjoy their juvenile rubbish.

Come on Scott, John didn't say he enjoyed the ginger whinger, just that he was still a fan of R2, when CE was on, as he knew something better would follow; and lets face it what could be any worse?

Actually, I'd quite like to hear ol' Dezzie-boy doing Drivetime. It would be nice and relaxed, we'd have a much more eclectic music mix - and it would be a lovely antidote to the ginger-nutted, loud-mouthed rentagob who currently occupies the chair. I might even get into the habit of listening again! Cool
