…I have submitted a complaint about my complaint, lol

@ghost_bird I keep screaming but God doesn't hear me

@cantinto Sometimes a bit of screaming is cathartic. And even an ignored complaint creates records that might help future complaints

@ghost_bird got a feeling God's HR department will lose the record

@ghost_bird This happens every time, I swear the person who runs the BBC Complaints line is the same person who writes the responses on the UK Govt petitions website.

@n Or at least, a harried junior admin using basically the same templates. I remember when I worked for an ISP back in the late 90s the complaints department was basically a bunch of perl scripts running regexes against the inbox

@ghost_bird Mmm, I noticed that gem the other day. Absolutely amazing, but, BBC News is thoroughly captured at this point. *sigh*

(And if people didn't think the BBC was under enough Tory control, wait 'til they get a load of the White Paper proposing a requirement for programming to reflect "Britishness")

@porsupah I actually think the transphobia is a longer-standing problem if the wrong kind of feminists are editorial levels rather than Tory control, but of course their inability to talk back to power is big problem too

@ghost_bird That could be, certainly. I'm /inclined/ to feel it's not a rerun of the Guardian, though I don't know what movement there's been at the upper levels of News. It *feels* to be more a result of the Tory takeover of the corporation, going by the timing, likely also emboldening the bigot-inclined too.

Moot point, I suppose - the outcome is the same: unapologetic, smug bigotry.

If I only had any hope in the Labour party.. but Starmer's busy stacking the decks to mute Conference opposition, on top of the general purge of the left.
