    BBC have different rules to everyone else

    "To achieve this means using your licence fee proportionately, so we won’t investigate minor, misconceived, hypothetical, repetitious or otherwise vexatious complaints which do not suggest a breach of standards. Nor do we investigate gratuitously abusive complaints."

    Tell me - if I described your complaint as "minor", and thus automatically "vexatious" which has a very specific meaning in UK law then would you feel this was an appropriate conflation of "it's not a very important matter" and "you are a shit stirring bastard!".

    The BBC seems to feel that where it is concerned there is no significant difference. Why did they put the word "otherwise" in there?

    Probably just a vexatious point. But someone should stir the shit...
