HPC's Forbidden Topics

..

From post #17, below:
QUOTE (DrBubb @ Oct 31 2010, 07:22 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Here are threads to use to discuss the "Forbidden Topics" on HPC:

If you want to discuss "DrBubb" on HPC I suggest using a codename: "Docbee", or "Deeby"
-or a less obvious one:
"BrotherDoug", "Bro.Doug", or just "my friend Doug"



GONE: Not only, my own posts and threads, but also many posts where my name or ideas were mentioned.
What this betrays is a lack of respect for history, the truth, and serious postings.

I said HERE on GEI, that I might do that.
I never made such a request on HPC, so someone must have come over here and read this comment.
(It was the actual and only comment that I ever made about it- despite whatever lies you may find on HPC):

UNQUOTE = = = = =

But what I am talking about is Mods at HPC seeing a new mention of "DrBubb", or "Crash Cruise Speed", etc.
by someone else, maybe like this:

// MrX: I enjoyed DrBubb's posts, and think he was right about Crash Cruise Speed. //

Such a posting would get deleted or modifies, unless it was posted in only one section (About HPC) there.
Which seems to be the only place that "forbidden topics" can be discussed.

I was surprised that they did not think twice about the possible value of those threads.

But it gives me a great reason not to waste any more time on such a website.

Nazis burned books - HPC moderators delete threads.

They both think they can make history disappear, but I wonder if they may just be speeding up their own disappearance.

I haven't even looked at HPC for maybe three years. The level of debate when I gave it up was dire. Although a few posters were worth reading, the points they made were often accessible elsewhere. Why bother with HPC at all?

Disgraceful treatment of Bubb though.

I saw that, which was one of the reasons I spoke of Nazis here.
Someone here sent me a PM about it & we had this conversation:

DB:
It is funny. But they have got the wrong Hitler.

Why should I be unhappy about where things stand? I like saving time.
And it is very good for me to know now that I was wasting it there- so I won't bother in future.

It's a pity I didn't realise it sooner, but I learned a few interesting things along the way, so perhaps it was worth it after all.

They called GEI a tumbleweed site for months, and now it is gaining traffic and may soon move past Singing Pig. Maybe the same thing will eventually happen with GPC, and maybe not. The things I post there may be interesting to many GEI posters either way. And it does give folks an alternative to HPC's Nazi paradise.


=== sidebar: Traffic: GEI vs. SP ===

=== === ===

AN other:
Trying to figure out if it is Quorky, but not sure. Yes, it was funny.

For HPC the worst possible thing has just happened . . . house prices crashed!

There's another one about UF and GEI joining forces, which will probably only make sense if you'd spent any time in the Off-topic forum at HPC.

As for HPC, you just need to know how to handle people, don't get defensive, turn it round on them using humility they wouldn't otherwise expect. It works and is a valuable tool for using in real life.


DB:
I'm plenty humble on GEI - havent you noticed?
The jerks on HPC create their own demons & trolls thru their "antibody" technique (of ganging up on people)
which I try to short-circuit when possible on GEI. I put up with it for years - clearly a mistake !

The HPC Mods are making their own future, and it doesnt look very attractive




AN other:
You're a different guy on here and I can understand HPC posters winding you up.
What happens to HPC.co.uk after a house price crash? I mean, what's it for?


DB:
HPC's moderation is very heavy on anyone they disagrees with, or who objects to their moderation policies. But while they so so very, very protective of their own Mods, they do nothing whatsoever to protect quality content from wind-ups, lies, half-truth and abuse. What tabloids are to the newspaper world, HPC is to the world of property chatboards.

They will have to figure that out for themselves.

By chasing away many serious posters, and making the place safe & comfortable for windup artists,
they are turning the site into a great place for dog-fights and circuses.

Remember the movie, Beyond Thunderdome? *

From:

Perhaps HPC will wind up like that. Fine if you want to witness a little mindless violence, but not healthy to
hang out there everyday. Life's too short to live in a village like that.

*actually, I think I spotted several of HPC's regular posters in the audience for that battle.

But, hey, nevermind.

Hi Bubb,

I've been a daily visitor on HPC for 6 years now (even on xmas day from the delivery suite of the materitiy ward!!!). Your posts were one of the main selling points of the site and were what raised the bar in terms of other sites. I'm amazed that they would remove such intellectual property rights and devalue their offering. The posts are a testament to how the site was ahead of the intellectual curve. It was probably a mod from the last few years who does not realise their sigifigace,

Hi Bubb

Its obvious that the HPC ban has wound you up, but the cynic in me says that you are now seen as a threat to HPC and that is the real reason behind your banning.

For years, HPC and GEI were forward looking sites (much of that down to your contributions) and sat together without too many problems. But GEI is becoming too big and is threatening HPC's dominance. On top of that GEI is still forward looking but HPC is now the subject of an historical event. Unless HPC changes its focus, it will wither on the vine.

BTW, love the "Antitbody" analogy! biggrin.gif

I think the technical term for it is "Mobbing!"

Harvipark,
I suspect that you are right about that.

In fact, I have been very fair to HPC, and whenever I was excerpting material from HPC, I always provided a link back.

They have now banned my material there. I expect that in a few weeks or months, it will be possible to mention DrBubb,
and "Crash Cruise Speed" or "Dead Cat Bounce" there. But the insecure Mods, may not be mature enough to allow links
back to original GEI material, in which case HPC readers may soon realise that they need to come directly to the source.

Those old HPC posters who want to "see a ghost" (& the ghost's forecasts) will have to come here.

They have now also deleted several threads with "Bubb" in the title. Perhaps the HPC mods felt threaten again.

(Laughs)

But they missed something.

There remains a thread there started 8 Aug. 2010 entitled: "Who Is The Best Hpc Poster?"

If you scroll down, you will find these comments:

TOP HPC POSTERS:
===============
8 Aug.2010 / C: "Dr Bubb for his expert analysis and **** on a block predictions."

8 Aug.2010 / L : "Edit, Damn... forgot Bubb and cgnao hotairmail. They have to be my top three GEI instead"

8 Aug.2010 / C: "Although there are some very good and knowledgeable posters at present on the Forum the really great ones were during the period from mid 2004 through 2006. Sadly they drifted away when the unbearable white noise started and the Forum was subjected to very annoying trolling."

8 Aug.2010 / X: "When I joined in 2005, I really felt I had found something special- the quality of posting was pertinent, and the sheer expertise of the posters was quite impressive- a little daunting in fact. personally I feel the whole atmosphere has changed greatly, we all pretty much come here out of habit now- little is going to change- 180 billion saw to that.

8 Aug.2010 / F: "A better thread would be the top three with whom you don't agree. I most like the posters with similar views to mine."

(The last one really "says it all", about what HPC has become:
A group of loud and half-drunken louts, standing on the pavement outside a busy pub, spoiling for a fight.)

http://www.housepric...howtopic=116640

and

When Do You Reckon Will Be A Good Time To Buy
http://www.housepric...d...78792&st=15

If you want to discuss "DrBubb" on HPC I suggest using a codename: "Docbee", or "Deeby"

-or a less obvious one:
"BrotherDoug", "Bro.Doug", or just "my friend Doug"

-or-
"IEG" for this website, as in: "my friend Doug, from IEG"

-or-
"Crash Momentum", or "H&N-index"

or show this chart


For instance, you might say:

"My friend 'Doug' watches the price of Barratt, and based on that, he thinks Crash momentum will be picking up in the months to come."
The market is "bipolar", swinging back and forth from a focus on Inflation to Deflation. Bet on swings; and stay flexible. What are bipolar markets? See: http://tinyurl.com/GEI-Manix

Had to search in my history of posts to find this thread, couldnt find it any other way.

Gold is money so to have a website called housePRICEcrash.co.uk that only alows gold to be disussed in a subforum as investments is missing the point. IMO, of course. There used to be a gold thread in the main section that floated freely and it was moved, so what you are asking for existed previously and the decision was taken not to permit discussion of real money in the main discussion, only houses priced in the local currency. Ironicly houses have crashed massively since 2005* from 700 ounces to 200 ounces for the average house, so because they refused to listen to any talk of gold, they missed out on the HPC and only got a currency crash that equaled the decline in house prices! Serves them right really.....

=== UNQUOTE ===

*interestingly, a number of quality posters such as JD financial planner & DrBubb appeared to be too early in their prediction of a crash in prices, but with hindsight they were spot on if viewed in gold ounces.

I've heard of various trolls getting banned in the past, but this is too far. Bubbs' posts were intelligent & reasoned with some evidence to back it up, rather than the all too common one liner. Sure he played devils advocate from time to time, that's all part of healthy debate! Did the mods get forum envy or something? It may be a small action however in protest I've removed the whitelist...

Oh dear, what are the mods doing? Why did they have to ban anyone? I know the DrBubb had reduced his postings here after a previous tiff. Is it me or are the mods slowly destroying this site?

He got banned by a moderator, until october next year.....crazy, as DrBubb was one, if not the best contributer here. They did the same to those who were pro gold about two years ago. http://www.greenener...showtopic=11154
