    Exactly the reason that I rarely post these days...
    We used to have a lot of not footy posts that were just a good laugh, but even these have dried up now!!

    Its like that old lady who swallowed a fly, then a host of other insects and animals trying to get shut of it. Absolutely crackers

    I thought it was a type of nerve pain.

    This message board is still great !!!
    I think a problem we have is that some people on here are not used to discussion and argument.
    They don’t live in a culture where this is a regular occurrence.
    So when they see anything that is contrary to the general consensus they are not capable of providing a reply and fall in to just calling people names such as troll.

    Imo it’s been the same site as when I first started reading it some 11/12 years ago .
    The abuse was there then as it is now .
    I’ve never stopped posting because of abuse I either give it back or ignore , it’s that easy really.
    Some posters post utterly ridiculous posts then cry wolf when they get it back , or because their views are controversial are surprised when they get loads of response and call that abuse or a crusade against them.
    I post my views and try to argue them if challenged , I’m not always right by any stretch but neither am I always wrong .
    Maybe for some people it’s not the board that’s wrong maybe just maybe it’s you

    Maybe its time for a cull as its getting on my tits as well? Some peoples reason to be on the site has little to do with football whatsoever.
    Please do use the report button if you see someone being abusive or constantly trolling and at least we can try and do something about it.

    I don't really care about the abuse as I just skim right past it, once I see an insult I just block it out really, like when you read a name you can't pronounce in a book so you just call them something else instead in your mind all the way through. What is putting me off the board is that I feel like I'm being surrounded by negativity and I don't like that. Coming on here is supposed to be a pleasurable experience, otherwise why bother? I find I'm opening and closing 5/6 threads in a row that I don't want to engage in as it's just negative comments that are pretty much the polar opposite of my views. I don't want to stop people from having an opinion, and if that is really their thoughts then of course they can have them and post them all they want, I just don't want to read them. I feel like I don't have much in common with people's views on here anymore and if this was a pub or elsewhere in real life I'd probably stop going. It's not that I want to be in an echo chamber and I'm quite partial to a debate Hi, @Tekkytyke ;) but reading how rubbish everyone and everything is on a loop is just boring and repetitive.

    This board compared to Tykesmad is a piece of cake.Every poster on Tykesmad is so negative its painful at times to read.I know forums are about opinions but when every opinion is so bleak there views become invalid to me.

    Fair enough but tbh most people wouldn’t air their views in the way that they do face to face imo as they would on an anonymous media site.
    So most of it’s hot air but o get what your saying.
    I have had many an hour in pubs debating one thing or another but I’ve always known the people I’m debating with and any detection of aggression used to end the discussion and move on and probably forgotten about soon after,
    I like you have opened many threads then closed them because it’s not my scene for whatever reason but there’s still loads of good discussion or jovial threads , memory threads or good humoured banter so it doesn’t put me off but everybody’s different .
    I get that there’s some on here constantly starting or interrupting for the sole purpose you state but it doesn’t bother me I either ignore or engage whichever mood I’m in or what ever the topic is.

    Tbh people post owt cos it's pre-season.. and a quiet one at that.. apart from redkestal, he's just an idiot.
    There's always been a wide range of views and topics on here and more power too it.. I post my veiw and normally leave it at that, don't try to change others minds.. cos you definitely won't change mine... I've had spats with one or two on here and will again..but 99% on here are fine, it's only an opinion nowt to start ww3 over..

    For the first time in my BBS history I have used the report button a couple of times over the last week or so; I wasn't sure if the issues had reached you or not so it is reassuring to know that they do, provided they are noted. As I said, I don't make a habit of using the function (twice in ten years) but as others have said it has gone beyond the pale on here recently.

    I would suggest starting with RedKestral, Young Nudger, TekkyTyke, that idiot holding a gun at the camera as his profile picture and OnGoingCloud (HT) (although I suspect he has gone now that he decided he was Swedish, despite posting to the contrary earlier and accidentally forgetting to switch accounts before defending himself)

    I do try & lighten the mood every now and then.
    I do get into the political stuff at times too. If a thread pisses me off I tend to move on.
    Usually a thread with over 500 posts is utter toss I find.

    Not sure, but he posted this:

    (click the little arrow in the quote title to go to the post)

    Which I'm 99% sure was supposed to be from a different account.

    Haha I missed that, that's brilliant. So that would indicate he has another active account. I suspected Tyrone who also seems to have gone quiet so possibly him.
