|Due to the receipt of a
serious email from a site member regarding the actions and posts of
another member on www.bulldogschat.com we have had to close this website
pending a review on whether we can continue in the future.
The site originally had inbuilt filters that many posters disagreed
with until we eased restrictions. However it has shown on reflection
that automatic moderation was necessary no matter how much members
disagreed with it. Moderators could not monitor the website 24/7 and
we tried to iterate the risks on a number of occasions without success.
The review requires an in-depth look at changing the website to be
premoderated and the page to no longer have real time posting functionality.
Owing to the cost and time involved, it may take several months to
complete as the site was built, paid for and maintained by a group
of volunteers who's only interest was to keep the original BDP community
Due to recent circumstances this has been severely affected and may
mean the site remains closed.
We will review the page after the Christmas and New Year period.
The BDP is still active for those seeking a page to carry on posting.
