Moderation certainly got poorer once Hearst took over the site. There was or still is some form of trolling, however even when they did the debit card checks, there were still multiple accounts from the same people.

Forums attract trolls like moths to a light. No matter what you do to try and lock them down, a troll will come. It may take weeks or months before they kick off so you most definitely won't spot them from the off. Sadly it's what happens when you have forums that are open to anybody to register on - and the troll is the one person who has to spoil it for everybody else.

There's a post on DS (not sure if it can be believed), but it's claimed Hurst tried to sell the AVForums advertising space to direct DS users to migrate to AV, AV said no thanks.

This was apparently confirmed by a long standing member of DS who has contact with a MOD.

It's a bit smoke and mirrors.

The forums will close on 1st Jan if true.

Mods deny it.

But they would be the last to know.

We don't have long to wait to see if this DS poster is talking rubbish.

The closure announcement will be made on Monday at 6PM! (if true)

Like 95% of posts on Digital Spy, I'd take it with a pinch of salt.


Looks as if the poster was talking rubbish, why do people create these lies.

DS posters are infamous for spreading rumours with no basis. One of the reasons why the forums have lost credibility.
