Brilliant stuff. I notice you didn't return to the schools thread when I challenged you. You challenged people, I took up the challenge but it seems you feigned injury and retired hurt.. No doubt the pace of the bowling was too quick for you. Stick to minor counties stuff, if you don't mind me suggesting that. More your level.

I don't think we need any sort of self-regulation or censorship. People just need to agree with me on every topic and the board will be fine. The only people who won't agree are probably too stupid to 'get it' anyway.
Was just thinking the same but 5 minutes before you...

I agree with that. But I don't understand why two of your aliases are bright, four are stupid and the other three don't seem to know that any of the others exist.

I'd suggest the exact opposite. The left dominate this side of the board and don't like their opinions to be challenged. I'd suggest there's a good few posters who don't/won't visit this side of the board because of it. Whether you like it or not there's a big clique over here. Said it yesterday, people on here only see what they want to see.
This side of the board is nowhere near a true reflection of the country outside of this tiny bubble....

I don't think this thread is supposed to be about me. 😎

I'm not pretending I'm perfect, I know quite well that I have enemies on here. I would also say that I don't respond the the vast majority of the abuse that I get. As I think you well know, as you are one of the very few who have ever defended me. 😀
Enemies! Seriously? I've offered my opinion on how I see a lot of your posts but does anyone really see you as an enemy?. I don't consider you to be an enemy at all and I doubt anyone else does. I wish you no harm just the same as I don't to everyone else on here. You used to post some very good stuff on here.

I still do. 🤣

The "enemies" word was chosen advisedly. And you were nowhere near my thoughts at the time. You exasperate and worry me greatly these days, but I have far more respect for you than that.

My post was a general point and had nothing to do with me being in your thoughts. I'd have to say imo your choice of word was ill advised. People not liking you or not having respect for you does not make you an enemy and just to be clear again that is a general point.
Anyway, I'm glad I exasperate you but as I told you before please don't worry about me I really am fine. Back to topic please.

I won't then (worry, I mean). 😀

I only posted as I did because you mentioned yourself straight away. Not a problem. As for the rest of it, I'm not sure how you can tell me what I should think, but again, never mind. This is a "no insults" thread....

I didn't tell you what you should think though did I? I simply offered my opinion on what I think. Go on have a look, you'll see I'm right. Again. 😉 Sigh of exasperation. 😁

I don't think you understand the point I was making.

Somehow I doubt you ever will, so I will bow out with a smile.

I think if ever we need a reminder about treating each other with respect it's the Mental Health thread on the main board.
This should have been the last post win here, scoring "points" off each other isn't worth the grief it can bring. Ditch the "man up, its only a message board, oooh its only banter".

This site (under one form or another) has attracted more Blackpool Fans and been more succesful than any other site. In the almost two decades that the site has been going, it has seen off numerous attempts at breakaway forums and remained the most popular site by an absolute country mile.

That success has been down to the widespread content, the range of opinions, the individual posters who contribute and the overall quality of the discussion and debate.

It's inevitable on such a busy site that there will be a few spats and personality clashes now and again.... Those posters who choose not to come on here for whatever reason are missing out on a fantastic site..... Though there will never be a shortage of new and interested members as there never has been.

Not sure I agree with the last comment about new members, majority are ones who’ve been around for years and let’s face it don’t like change so will always come here hence why it’s so popular. Don’t get me wrong it is a good read at times but I think your papering over cracks a little bit.

Overall quality is another highly debatable comment, most threads end up with two posters arguing who always clash and doesn’t take long until its personal/gets off topic and OTT.

The success of the site its longevity is proof of its success. The membership has changed and developed over time and continues to do so.

There is a regular flow of new members, literally signing up every day.

I’m not really sure what you mean by “papering over the cracks”. I’m simply stating the facts about an online forum for football fans... There are no cracks to paper over, the site gets tens of thousands of hits, the post count is massive and replies are continuous.... The fact that you “know a few people who think it’s crap” isn’t a barometer for success or failure lol

Your final paragraph is just exaggerated nonsense and doesn’t reflect the true nature of the site at all... (although the whole purpose of this side of the board is to discuss and debate, so it’s kind of inevitable that people will disagree).

Most threads don’t end up like that at all. It’s a daft message board ffs....why you piping up so much about it?......it’s absolutely fine as it is.

I think the problem comes now the swear filter is off. Calling someone a fucking wanker is offensive but calling them a phucking vvanker is just funny.

Piping up so much about it? I’ve posted once and then in reply to BFC x3 which I’ve now left alone as we have clearly different views of which I respect and it doesn’t need taking any further.

Why are you trying to take it further and “piping up”

More defensive about your precious AVFTT then a Nasser Hussain innings you.

They don’t remove the most personal attack posts from the rabid left leaning brigade though!

Some of the most recent personal attacks from the same crowd is just allowed to be left posted. You haven’t removed the posts, why the bias?
You do know that's nonsense, right?

Not at all.

If the rules were applied more fairly. I believe the personal attacks and unnecessary comments would lessen.

I do think there is a frustration that the rules aren’t applied evenly. Many abusive comments and personal attacks do not get deleted, or removed. Strange?

I do believe this is fair comment, and doesn’t warrant removal.

But that doesn’t count as abuse does it?

I haven’t been barred since Basil Robbie took offence to my anti O posts.

From (Hazi) memory, I don't think it was so much your opinons. More the way you chose to express them.

But that was a very long time ago, and you seem to have improved under my tutelage. 😀
