Sometimes, there’s always a few who try and spoil a fun thing for the rest. That much has become evident over on the Big Finish website as they’ve had a bit of trouble from some forum members.
Some bigotry, prejudice and even bullying have been appearing in some of the forums run by the audio production company, to such an extent that they have shut that section of the website down indefinitely whilst they decide its future.
This can sometimes be the way that forums go, certainly in the Doctor Who world. Whilst everyone’s opinion is indeed valid and open for discussion, there is always a line that you must remember to draw when getting into a debate with someone.
Kasterborous’ forum has (luckily) never had to endure this problem as it’s filled with good natured and sensible people but as you can see at Big Finish, it only takes one person to bring a whole world crashing down!
Whilst this must be terribly inconvenient for the production team at Big Finish, they still want to hear your opinion on their products and they still want your questions for their weekly podcast, Vortex. You can direct questions to the team via emailing either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Big Finish’s Facebook page will also remain open for you to leave posts on.
Hopefully, things will be back to normal sooner rather than later and everyone will be able to put this behind them. Just remember, good people, we’re all here for the same reason – to celebrate a fantastic effort made on a fantastic show.
Let’s focus on that rather than bickering amongst ourselves.
