    I think I might have to call it a day.

    99% of threads are trolling, political or just negativity beyond the realms of sanity.

    It's unreal. What happened?

    99% of threads these days seem to be about miseries moaning about the posts on here. Despite being able to moan for free.

    it's all real and nothing's happened.

    May I suggest that Neymar like you'll be OK in no time?

    An amazing amount of people on social media believe they can abuse others and think they can say exactly what they like irrespective of who and how it offends others. It's an incredibly sad thing that decency, caring, manners, politeness, empathy has gone and cowards hiding behind a computer spout pure nastiness.

    It's like any other " meeting place", be it the pub, work or at the match. People hold diverse views
    and like the social animals that we are, like to garner other people's opinions. As the new season gets underway,
    we will find that the exchange of views will become more focussed on the Barnsley Football team and how well or otherwise it and Herr Stendel are doing. Can't argue with a 2-0 and a 7-1 thus far. COYR.

    I'm all for having a good debate about things but this board even in the short time i've been on here has recently become full of trolls trying to get a rise from people. It's pathetic. It's not a difference of opinion it's taking pleasure from pissing people off.

    Never used to be like this, mate.

    A couple of years ago it was fantastic on here.

    There are far more posters on here that I like than dislike which is why Im still here. Ignoring people is an option but it screws threads up a bit. Just can't be doing with all the attention seeking political posts and the blatant trolls.

    Just came on here after getting back and wish I hadn’t. Off to watch love island where people are far less fake than on here.

    For quite a while this board was the swiftest place to hear BFC developments. These days you only need to bookmark or 'follow' the club's Twitter page.

    TBH it's appeal diminishes when you read stuff from far right lunatics or rabid brexiteers.

    I have a poster on ignore and I've not noticed any problem. I'm going to guess it's him you're referring to. Just use the ignore button - it's a great feature!

    I’m feeling the same way. I’m not sure why I bother opening up the board anymore.

    Noooooo!! We might disagree on politics but at least you post without abusing and insulting people who disagree with your PoV and certainly do NOT troll or post click bait

    You're going nowhere. I like reading your posts too much. Think of it as doing a public service for us poor simple beings

    I like reading them too, even though I hardly post any more because of the senseless abuse, endless political arguments and constant repetition of the same points over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over five goal keepers and over and over again.
