Some posters can "hold their hand up" when proved to be wrong , and I received retractions/apologies from a few ( including TJ ) however there have been a couple of exceptions . I'm not surprised that he claims that he was banned "for nothing really" , his opinion that he offered "alternative views and perspectives" is perhaps not surprising , as is his opinion that " MF is poorer" for him not posting . At the end of the day the mods are in charge and he can always set up his own site to air his views , frankly I wouldn't be breaking my neck to join it and I don't have a problem with Gladys's decision . Just saying I agree with that and to be honest I found the way he used to follow posters around just digging and jibing at them for no reason until they got wound up and bit back at him extremely childish. Also when posters did bite back it seemed to trigger extreme bouts of name calling and further taunting of those who challenged anything he said. Once you had crossed him, and it only had to be once on a minor issue, he launched into a full scale attack of absolutely every post you made in every thread whether warranted or not. It was quite sad and stopped me posting for a while. I think the problem gets to when people believe they own these boards and can basically say what they like and provoke whoever they like and it becomes a campaign of sorts to get their own way. Notty did it consistently, Quilp did it every now and again, and Woolley did it for a period too on the Brexit stuff; and so have a few others. It just gets boring to be honest like Groundhog Day. I’m not surprised either that he believes he’s been banned for “nothing really” (if that is true) when he appeared to me to be the one of the main instigators of a lot of the hassle on here. It certainly is quiet in comparison. Edited December 21, 2017 by thesultanofsheight Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
