How many of the readers of these pages, have been onto the UKCS camping and caravanning forum?
Have you noticed how many of the 'regular posters are 'missing' nowadays? The moderaters are banning people from the website for even mentioning Valbarleys name / blog site / or even painting bell tents ? And why? because she [posted some pictures of her week-end away and the mods 'locked the thread until she put a favourable review on about the campsite she had visited ! As she had had a - wet, awkward pitch and the site owners were not the most helpful people. She naturally did not give them a glowing report ! That was not allowed, because the site advertises on the ukcs webpages and -pays! So rather than risk upsetting one of their sponsers ? they have put a ban on this poor poster !

If anyone uses the campsite search facility on this site ! please be aware that there will be NO negative reports, about any of the sites or services listed in the pages !
How's that for Honesty ????

oh by the way i am also banned from there as well.

Its funny you should mention this, i notice how a certain campsite in the Lakes gets so many good reviews , as its site is certainly overcrowded, with drink fuelled campers, toilets that are not cleaned, and the rest.

i don't really go on ukcs anymore, i use an activity based forum where members post campsites related to their activity, i tend to keep away from the busy ripping off sites.

This has to be ukcampsite dot co dot UK you're posting about.

I'm another one who has been excluded without being told why. this is my first season camping but I've tried my best not to ask too many daft questions and to pass on good deals I think others will find helpful.

I think I was banned for good after mentioning having a meet up that we'd not want a face painter we'd want a tent painter.
I didn't even mention VAL Barley and her fabulous bell tents. Google VAL barley and Mister men if you've never seen this work it's fab but we warned you'll be hunting preloved for a bell tent of your own)

search for ailurotoo posts on ukcs forum if you think I'm prone to incendiary trolling. it's sad the mass editing and banning isn't known about. decent people are posting on an unfair forum and it bugs me some folks are making money without being upfront about it.

I posted an unfavourable review of a campsite between Balloch and Crianlarich in Scotland where the onsite pub did not close until 2am and patrons continued partying/drinking outside (inspite of midgies!), also there was a football match going on at 3am. There was no one onsite to speak to and at 4am we had had enough, packed up and went home. Never, never again will I go to Beinglas Campsite. Anyway, I digress - I posted my review of this campsite on UKCS and guess what - nothing - a big fat zero. Am I surprised, yeh well a little I suppose.

Thanks, had a look and some of the reviewers had the same experience as me. Glad to see some websites show good and bad.

it's a shame there are a lot of folks on the yellow site who are very helpful and genuine. They have no inkling how biased it really is.

Shame because campers do seem to be a great bunch of folk ( apart from the ones whose nicknames end in Z... lol)
