Petition against TV licence threads on the Digital Spy forum sign now

We the undersigned petition to have all licence fee threads to be removed from the DigitalSpy broadcasting forums and instead putting them into a seperate television funding forum. This is because (Currently) a great majority of pro/anti television licence threads are either;

1.) Filled with Trolls that do not enhance or contribute to the argument in any positive way- simply arguing that they shouldnt have to pay for the television licence because they subscribe to Sky. Many arguments lack articulation do not provide statistics on each persons argument and use sweeping statments such as 'The BBC produce nothing but crap like Strictly come dancing'.

2.) A Vast majority of arguments go over the same old ground over and over and over and over again.

3.) It polarises the DigitalSpy forum community into a pro/anti TVL crowd.

4.) They often incite illegal behaviour ( Such as how to avoid paying the TVL. Whilst owning a television and watching broadcast signals).


Furthermore we the undersigned believe that threads which deal with legitimate criticism of the BBC's services should not descend into a debate on the funding structure of the BBC unless the provision of those services are directly related to the way the BBC is funded.

We also believe that threads on Doctor Who/Eastenders/Strictly Come Dancing/planet earth etc etc should not be willingly hijacked by certain FM's to turn these threads onto a debate about BBC funding Comments such as 'That program is worth the licence fee alone' or 'I am disgusted that the licence fee is being spent on programmes like this' are acceptable however no further comments should be made on the BBCs funding structure in threads not directly related to the funding of the BBC.
