Title: What is the point of this board anymore?
Post by: blasmere on January 17, 2021, 04:22:03 PM
The quality of discussion probably dipped here 5+ years ago, if not longer, never mind now.

What turns you off?

I don't like to pick on certain posters but the 2 mentioned mustn't have much of a life to spend an insatiable amount of their time on here. I personally have nothing against Sid but I do recognise that his opinions can be divisive to others.

I could take it or leave it, mostly I leave it.  More action on the fields would cut out a lot of the 'off-season' crap.  Can't believe how much soccer on a GAA Discussion Board - boring.  Really you have some posters more interested in their ego that any constructive debate or discussion, some being deliberately divisive or insulting. 

When the fun is over time to stop?!

The question isn't whether my opinions are "divisive"

The question is whether they are correct

Pure sh*te at this point.
Back in the day, I would come on here for GAA match reports and previews before I would even look at the Irish newspapers. Some of the bloggers were first class, and were very knowledgeable and honest in their posting. there are like Hen's teeth now.

As for the general discussion, when you see idiots like the previous poster, posting four or five consecutive blogs on the same topic, well need I say anymore.

I have gone from coming on daily to maybe once a week or even less.

This was a forum where a majority discussion was inter-county football.

Bar talking about Dublin's wealth and advantages, there's nothing to discuss anymore on that topic.

Little did we know when the game was at it's height in the '00's that this would soon be coming to an end.

Now we have pages and pages about US Politics, Covid and the Premier league.

I donít think the moderation of  this site is very good. Sid is divisive at times and should have been suspended for a while for some personal stuff but that aside I find some of his stuff interesting.

That other balloon on the other hand. Could everyone not ignore? Itís not that the opinions are divisive they are just utter nonsense then people get all the insults of the day for having a very reasonable opinion. I just donít know or see how there is a functional adult behind that keyboard.

Interestingly enough in the early stages of the pandemic Angelo was one of the most pro-lockdown people

But I guess QEwanon MacKenna then changed his opinions so Angelo had no choice but to do so as well

The last quoted post here is rather ironic


This is a life and death matter and we are all responsible for how we can limit the casualties.

Unless your journey is essential, you should not be on the road and if you are then you should meet the full penalties of the law for being so self-centred, reckless and arrogant in these times.


This is quite simply a life and death matter that we can have a positive impact on by adhering to the guidelines.

Civil liberties should be way down the list of what is important at the minute.

You seem to feel quite entitled.


Everyone is the same boat but there's always some asshole who thinks they are special and deserve to do what they and everyone else has been told they can't.

That is very true.

One thing I would say though is there used to be some interesting/ insightful posts on the corona virus thread and that has pretty much been killed off single handedly. The rest of the threads I wouldnít be so worried about.

Given my personal situation you'll forgive me if I take some things quite seriously

I couldn't care less what nonsense that poster posts on a thread about Celtic, or on GAA matters, as both are ultimately irrelevant

But we have an active disinformation peddler of the worst kind on this forum and the sort of disinformation he pushes has become widespread online and is costing lives

It is the public health equivalent of the big lies fed to the Trump supporting nutcases at the Capitol last week

It is draining and thoroughly depressing for anybody to try and combat this disinformation which comes 24/7 from somebody who has seemingly no other purpose in life except to push this disinformation, and is totally impervious to reason - which is why I have largely given up trying to do so

Seaney was the same before he was seemingly banned recently

Some people decide to reject reality, and they are always the most performatively confident and aggressive

Little wonder the Covid threads have turned into a total car crash

Believe me, he isn't a wind up

I have long experience of his postings (since about 2011) on a different forum on which I used to post - he still posts copious amounts of similar rŠimťis there, he's on there as much, probably even more than he is here

He used to be mildly entertaining in a stupid sort of way but has gone off the reservation completely in the last year or two, especially as regards Covid

Angeloís MO is to pick a subject and then pick the most controversial side, and then argue it. Be that Covid, CoC, the vaccine, RoI. Whichever topic people are emotive about. I donít believe even he believes the sh!te he spouts  But it doesnít matter, itís the actual arguing that gives him a kick. Smacks of small man syndrome if you ask me. I just donít believe anyone could consistently pick the most controversial stance on so many topics unintentionally.
Even on topics where he would have consensus, heíll target people to get a rise out of them. Iíll decide on the Celtic thread for example. He goads away until he gets his reaction. Ifs a pity as heís making threads unreadable.

I take it you are referring to Angelo.
If you are, you are wasting your time trying to talk sense to him or indeed to lose any sleep over anything he says.  He shouldn't be taken seriously.
I read a couple of his posts and left it at that. A complete nutter or a windup merchant, you take your pick. As for me, I'm hedging my bets. I'll settle for 50/50 as the safest option.

 (https://ibb.co/VqDqB9d)

The board has been on the slide for more than a decade. 2009 was the pinnacle. Mucksavages, etc.

Year on year since there have been fewer new threads, fewer posts, and fewer sign-ups. The slide is probably terminal, and the board might have gone already if it wasn't for the fact that so many boys have been here 15+ years and almost have a sense of duty to keep the flag flying.

The decline is mostly due to the rise of social media. There now exists bigger, shinier platforms on which you can offer your two cents to the world. Twitter, in particular, killed the Latest Score thread, which was a healthy contributor to post counts and a big reason to log on in the early days. Other discussion boards like boards.ie and politics.ie have suffered in similar ways.

Another reasons for the decline is administrative neglect. There has been no effort to modernise this place from something that looks like a relic of the dial-up days, and there has been a noticeable drop off in active moderation over the last few years.

This is all a pity. You'd like to think that there is still a place for discussion boards in the internet ecosystem of today - places that allow for more detailed, nuanced chat than you get on Twitter/ FB/ etc. And despite the boredom of the Dub dominance era, there's still plenty worthy of proper discussion in the GAA world.

But you really need to work on keeping the house tidy for it to remain healthy and attractive, and it seems that the boy with the keys to the forum has more important real life stuff to be getting on with these days. Which is fair enough. But it's still a shame that a few more active moderators couldn't have been recruited over the years.

More active moderation retains the insightful and entertaining posters that have drifted away in recent years, no doubt tired of what the place has become.

More active moderation cuts off the reemergence of creepy f**kers like Seaney, stalking the board in pursuit of weird feuds no one else cares about.

More active moderation cleans up duplicate threads - like the three separate COVID threads in the general section all chatting about the same thing, or the 5+ 'Dublin's money is ruining the GAA' threads in the GAA section.

More active moderation gives the couple of lads name checked by the OP a time-out every once in a while, both for their own mental health, and also to stop the repeated filibustering of threads into oblivion.

But it's probably already too late. Without some very timely intervention this'll just be a place where an increasingly small handful of boys shout the same stuff at each other day after day after day until there's no one else left. Or until the board admin pulls the plug. Might not be far away from that the way it's going.

The problem inherent is that the ability to submit an extended narrative makes it an attractive mechanism for people who like to write too much, too often (and I very much include me in that type of person).

Those who prefer shorter, snappier interchanges are lost among the mess. Twitter would obviously suit their needs better. And as they depart, the threads only get longer and messier.

óó

Anonymity is of course an issue too. Weíve a certain poster on the Down section who is exceptionally careful not to leave a paper trail about himself. Nor would you leave one either, if your sole purpose for posting was to attack individuals and clubs. Itís vindictive. Itís disgusting.

Can come in handy sometimes. If you're late landing on a thread and two people are having a ding-dong you can read the whole exchange in one post. It is duplicative though, a tree structure of replies would be better.

New mod here.  Honestly have no idea how many other active mods are on this board.

Posts with personal insults will be deleted by me, as will any post that quotes the insult.  Can't be much fairer than that.  I won't comment on any post, but if you find a post of yours gone, that's why.

Tedious, boring entries will be left alone for now...I won't merge threads, but I would appeal that the appropriate thread be used and not create another thread because you can.

I hope to log on every day, but usually in the evening so I mightn't be on top of things immediately.

Absence of mods was a failure recently.  I spent a bit of time deleting posts on the Death Notices thread and  I expect future responses in this thread to be a one or two sentence comment on the person.  Anything deeper than that will be deleted, so if you want to discuss that person's political or social impact I'd ask you to create a new thread. 

Hardly worth going back on old threads at this stage, so everyone is on a clean slate with me unless you've received a note from me in the last week.  Posters will be asked only once to quit the personal abuse, second yellow card means ban.

I don't know if mods post under another user name or not, I suppose I'll find out soon enough.

I appreciate everyone's efforts (or the vast majority of posters anyway) and I promise to do what I can to help.  All posts reported will be reviewed, but as of now, only posts with personal insults or posts gone off topic on the Death Notices thread will be deleted.

If you think that is censorship...start a thread on it and see what the board thinks.  Or comment on it in this thread.

I expect some support on keeping things clean and decent. 

Over to you all.

The quality of discussion probably dipped here 5+ years ago, if not longer, never mind now.

What turns you off?

I don't like to pick on certain posters but the 2 mentioned mustn't have much of a life to spend an insatiable amount of their time on here. I personally have nothing against Sid but I do recognise that his opinions can be divisive to others.

We have 20 threads on Dublin threads and every other thread non related turns into a Dublin discussion. Can we have one thread for this and let posters like Bunker, Mup, Angelo,Rossfan and Seafoid  use this instead of polluting all the threads??

If it gets personal, get out!! or step back, none of this is actually real tbf, a load of nameless faceless people having a barney online..

There are some decent souls on here, though they do, well all I suppose, don't mind a good wind up if the opportunity strikes, some take it thick others not.

The Gaa for me is the only reason I'm on here, in the past its been a great insight into all things local and 'abroad' . As for the non GAA stuff, you can get embroiled into a farce of which in reality you have no real expertise or knowledge other than what you read or hear about.

As GOTB said, it gets you through the day, I can't for the life of me though know how so many posters are on different boards or Twitter or whatever else is available and comment on them!!

That other balloon on the other hand. Could everyone not ignore? Itís not that the opinions are divisive they are just utter nonsense then people get all the insults of the day for having a very reasonable opinion. I just donít know or see how there is a functional adult behind that keyboard.
Interestingly enough in the early stages of the pandemic Angelo was one of the most pro-lockdown people

But I guess QEwanon MacKenna then changed his opinions so Angelo had no choice but to do so as well

The last quoted post here is rather ironic


This is a life and death matter and we are all responsible for how we can limit the casualties.

Unless your journey is essential, you should not be on the road and if you are then you should meet the full penalties of the law for being so self-centred, reckless and arrogant in these times.


This is quite simply a life and death matter that we can have a positive impact on by adhering to the guidelines.

Civil liberties should be way down the list of what is important at the minute.

You seem to feel quite entitled.


Everyone is the same boat but there's always some asshole who thinks they are special and deserve to do what they and everyone else has been told they can't.

The lockdown didn't work.

I'm one of the brighter people on the board so I don't believe in continuing with failed strategies and expecting different results.

Also it should be noted that Sid is the person who deals in misinformation.

When I called him out on the misinformation he was spreading on the vaccine yesterday with facts, he started rabbiting on about Putin, "I'm alright Jack" and conspiracy theories.

That's the type of nutjob you are dealing with, he is man with an ocean full of contradictions. It's always exciting to see which one he will row over on next.

Finally the problem here with a good few posters and one I have experienced myself from them is that they are extremely dogmatic and prejudiced in their views and opinions and dare you actually out debate them with facts and logic. I've exposed a lot of hypocrites on here and that's usually the point where I get insulted, people tend to snap when their exalted moral superiority is shown to be very hollow.

Yeah, my oul' fella is dying from it because he got it in hospital just after Christmas when community spread was rampant

But these anti-lockdown loonies still talk about intelligence-insulting inanities like "focussed protection" and "shielding" while letting the virus run rampant, jesus f**king christ

When community spread is rampant, the reality is there's no way to keep it out of hospitals

I was in the hospital a few hours ago and am going back this evening - I've seen the huge efforts they're making in there - I don't blame them - but the reality is my father would have been out and at home if not for catching Covid in there

He caught it because the hospital staff could not avoid catching it, why, because they live in the community

And the decision to go with what the herd immunity nutcases wanted, for just one month, not even a month, means my father will die over the next couple of days

So I find it very hard not to be angry with the anti-science disinformation peddlers, or worse, those who actually advocate what is a effectively a holocaust of the elderly and the vulnerable, as well as younger people who have died

All so they can have their pints, and a "meaningful Christmas"

A "meaningful Christmas" for Angelo and others like him now means bye bye Daddy for me

And that's the reality, and believe me, it's f**king brutal

I am truly sorry to hear about your father and I hope he can pull out of danger. It may not look likely right now  but letís hope your dad will prove to be an exception to the general run.
I genuinely understand why the amount of pseudo experts who peddle false Covid-related information upsets you. They carry a frightful responsibility as they dole out crap that could cause a loss of innocent lives if anyone should believe what they are saying.
I too am enraged by the sort of fake news you refer to.
 I contracted the virus and spent a number of days in Beaumont Hospital. In all honesty, I cannot decide which was worse, the virus or the stay in the hospital ward. I wouldnít wish either on my worst enemy- assuming I have one of those.
My main memory is of the frontline staff literally running as they tried to do their work. The sweat was pumping out of them as they all were wearing around a stone of PPE gear. The fear of contracting the virus terrifies each and every one of them as they see the effects of the virus on all sides.
I cannot understand the mentality of those who seek to downplay the effects of Covid-19 or who brag about their refusal to take the vaccine if it was made available to them.
I stay away from Covid-related discussions on this board because I am upset by the amount of nonsense I see posted and I donít want to go into them in detail.
Although I have noticed that a few posters that Iíd normally rate as sensible, are inclined to downplay the effects of the virus or claim they wonít avail of the vaccine.
The most charitable thing I can say to them is that, if they were to spend 30 5 minutes in a Covid ward, they would change their views fast.
Keep the faith sid and I hope you can bear with whatever lies in store. I hope the news will be good.

Where else could I hear that Casement Park in Belfast was an answer on University Challenge?

What was the question?

The question was to name sports grounds in Ireland named after certain people. Then without naming their names, Paxton described Archbishop Thomas Croke, Roger Casement and William Petty-FitzMaurice, 1st Marquess of Lansdowne.

Jim Allister et al will be ragin.

About 4 threads at least currently being ruined.
I see you and a lot of others are falling into a trap.
First rule in the Internet  browsers handbook is, "Don't feed the trolls."

I fell into that trap but when he says U40s are at risk and your friend almost died due to covid itís hard not to react
Yeah, my oul' fella is dying from it because he got it in hospital just after Christmas when community spread was rampant

But these anti-lockdown loonies still talk about intelligence-insulting inanities like "focussed protection" and "shielding" while letting the virus run rampant, jesus f**king christ

When community spread is rampant, the reality is there's no way to keep it out of hospitals

I was in the hospital a few hours ago and am going back this evening - I've seen the huge efforts they're making in there - I don't blame them - but the reality is my father would have been out and at home if not for catching Covid in there

He caught it because the hospital staff could not avoid catching it, why, because they live in the community

And the decision to go with what the herd immunity nutcases wanted, for just one month, not even a month, means my father will die over the next couple of days

So I find it very hard not to be angry with the anti-science disinformation peddlers, or worse, those who actually advocate what is a effectively a holocaust of the elderly and the vulnerable, as well as younger people who have died

All so they can have their pints, and a "meaningful Christmas"

A "meaningful Christmas" for Angelo and others like him now means bye bye Daddy for me

And that's the reality, and believe me, it's f**king brutal
I am truly sorry to hear about your father and I hope he can pull out of danger. It may not look likely right now  but letís hope your dad will prove to be an exception to the general run.

New mod here.  Honestly have no idea how many other active mods are on this board.

Posts with personal insults will be deleted by me, as will any post that quotes the insult.  Can't be much fairer than that.  I won't comment on any post, but if you find a post of yours gone, that's why.

Tedious, boring entries will be left alone for now...I won't merge threads, but I would appeal that the appropriate thread be used and not create another thread because you can.

I hope to log on every day, but usually in the evening so I mightn't be on top of things immediately.

Absence of mods was a failure recently.  I spent a bit of time deleting posts on the Death Notices thread and  I expect future responses in this thread to be a one or two sentence comment on the person.  Anything deeper than that will be deleted, so if you want to discuss that person's political or social impact I'd ask you to create a new thread. 

Hardly worth going back on old threads at this stage, so everyone is on a clean slate with me unless you've received a note from me in the last week.  Posters will be asked only once to quit the personal abuse, second yellow card means ban.

I don't know if mods post under another user name or not, I suppose I'll find out soon enough.

I appreciate everyone's efforts (or the vast majority of posters anyway) and I promise to do what I can to help.  All posts reported will be reviewed, but as of now, only posts with personal insults or posts gone off topic on the Death Notices thread will be deleted.

If you think that is censorship...start a thread on it and see what the board thinks.  Or comment on it in this thread.

I expect some support on keeping things clean and decent. 

Over to you all.

Oh I'll be reporting posts left right and centre! i was an informer for years but it didn't always do much good with the moderators seemingly AWOL. Nice to see someone bringing order to the board. Best of luck to the new regime!

Sorry about your dad, Sid. Hope he pulls through.

I have elderly parents too, I'm very lucky to have had them around for so long. Living in the country it's relatively easy for them to stay isolated. I hope they can hold out long enough to get the vaccine, but I'm afraid that the Covid-deniers are going to get them killed too by spreading their rubbish on social media. It's a white-knuckle ride.

Theres one poster whos one of those kids you went to school with,  who always believed he was right, these kids were generally spoilt rotten, maybe first born or only child.

But as kids get older they catch on,  heís just a twat were his Ďfriendsí out grow him and tolerate him the odd time.

The silent treatment works best, eventually when no one else talks to him, they eventually get the hint, again, then either move on or change identity, but the masks slips very quickly..

Why take away any existing threads? How about the mods maybe reign in the nastiness a bit? We're all adults here (I think) and should, in the most part be able to post without the nastiness. Take the teachers on here, should they have to read that venom last night? In civilised forum, no way

I don't like to pick on certain posters but the 2 mentioned mustn't have much of a life to spend an insatiable amount of their time on here. I personally have nothing against Sid but I do recognise that his opinions can be divisive to others.

My main memory is of the frontline staff literally running as they tried to do their work. The sweat was pumping out of them as they all were wearing around a stone of PPE gear. The fear of contracting the virus terrifies each and every one of them as they see the effects of the virus on all sides.

Thanks for your good wishes Lar and to the other posters who expressed sympathies over my Dad's condition, that's a very well written post and I'm so glad for you that you have overcome Covid. I myself was sweating in the PPE - gown, gloves, mask, visor, and I was only a visitor so wasn't running around like the staff. My Dad was actually lucky in some ways in that he ended up in a single room, and we were able to visit him since Sunday as he no longer classed as infectious, but sadly he died yesterday morning with me and my Mam cradling him in our arms. The culprit was 100% Covid, it ravaged his system to the point where antibiotics would no longer work, dexamethasone wouldn't work, nothing else would work in terms of saving him, and the sound of him struggling to breathe at some points over his last couple of of days will haunt me forever, it sounded like he was drowning. He opened his eyes with about 12 hours left to try and communicate with me, as if he was asking me to save him, I know he knew I was there, but I was helpless except to try and comfort him with words, and he was helpless and so were the staff to do anything except try and make him as comfortable as possible. It's a f**king horrible way to die and I wouldn't wish his last week on anybody, nor my last week.

I am truly sorry to hear about your father and I hope he can pull out of danger. It may not look likely right now  but letís hope your dad will prove to be an exception to the general run.
I genuinely understand why the amount of pseudo experts who peddle false Covid-related information upsets you. They carry a frightful responsibility as they dole out crap that could cause a loss of innocent lives if anyone should believe what they are saying.
I too am enraged by the sort of fake news you refer to.
 I contracted the virus and spent a number of days in Beaumont Hospital. In all honesty, I cannot decide which was worse, the virus or the stay in the hospital ward. I wouldnít wish either on my worst enemy- assuming I have one of those.
My main memory is of the frontline staff literally running as they tried to do their work. The sweat was pumping out of them as they all were wearing around a stone of PPE gear. The fear of contracting the virus terrifies each and every one of them as they see the effects of the virus on all sides.
I cannot understand the mentality of those who seek to downplay the effects of Covid-19 or who brag about their refusal to take the vaccine if it was made available to them.
I stay away from Covid-related discussions on this board because I am upset by the amount of nonsense I see posted and I donít want to go into them in detail.
Although I have noticed that a few posters that Iíd normally rate as sensible, are inclined to downplay the effects of the virus or claim they wonít avail of the vaccine.
The most charitable thing I can say to them is that, if they were to spend 30 5 minutes in a Covid ward, they would change their views fast.

And that is the most sincere, from the heart post I have ever read.
As an old saying goes, it would melt the heart of a stone. Any unbalanced individual who delights in peddling false and misleading information on this board or anywhere else has gone beyond redemption if he should read your account of your dad's passing and fail to cop himself on.

So sorry for your loss Sid. I can only bear thinking about how hard it was to watch him go like that.

People need to wise the f**k up and realise this for what it is. Thereís 400-500 people a week or more dying from it on the island. Thereís 100,000 or so have died from it in the UK in less than a year. Over 2m worldwide. To put that in context around half a million die from the flu worldwide each year.  This is deadly, this is among us and people need to behave correctly. If there had been no lockdowns this would have been rampant among us and the deaths would have been multiples of what they are.

The quality of discussion probably dipped here 5+ years ago, if not longer, never mind now.

What turns you off?

I don't like to pick on certain posters but the 2 mentioned mustn't have much of a life to spend an insatiable amount of their time on here. I personally have nothing against Sid but I do recognise that his opinions can be divisive to others.
Just to let you know that you were correct in your questioning and tbh there isn't really any point to the vast majority of the threads on this board.

I recently offered Sid sympathy on his fathers illness and assured him I'd say a few prayers for him, which I did immediately. I also offered my sympathies on his father's passing.

Last night, in the first interaction I've had with him since, Sid accused me of 'being into dead children'.

Posting to this thread as it's one the Mods seemed to be keeping an eye on. I posted a comment on it a few weeks ago saying some people take gaaboard a little too seriously. Fairly innocuous, but that post was deleted. So what exactly does Sid have to say to earn himself a permanent ban?

So I've been made aware from the mod that there are a cabal of posters going through backchannels and putting pressure on them to ban me off the forum

I'm sorry to break it to you guys, but it's not the schoolyard any more.

I do have to say I find it utterly pathetic that RossFan goes around telling everyone how he has me on ignore, telling everyone they should do the same and then a few posts later will be contributing snide digs at a poster he claims to have on ignore and wants everyone else to ignore.

I like most have to suffer RossFan's posts but I'm not the sort of petulant or entitled chap who then tries to get the moderator to ban him off the forum, I would back myself to handle the situation and show him up for what he is and I'd take satisfaction in doing so. Rossfan likes to run behind people's back and try and get them ran off the forum when they show him up.

There's a thing call tolerance. We are all posters here, we all have opinions, we all offer views, it's a discussion forum but quite a large cohort of posters only want their views heard. I will challenge anyone's views and they can feel free to do the same with mine, I won't complain.

Then there's the posters who can challenge other posters views but throw the toys out of the pan and I don't think it's right that these posters are now trying to call the shots on which posters can and cannot contribute their side of the argument.

There's only a few threads I post on here anyway, people can take it or leave it, but some people simply cannot practice tolerance and want control the output.

So I'll leave it at this. I have no real interest in posting on a forum where I'm on a leash and at the mercy of mob rule. I will let you decide, if Rossfan can drum up 40 posters to join his campaign of controlling output on here then I have no problem leaving, I'd be glad to.

There's a thing call tolerance. We are all posters here, we all have opinions, we all offer views, it's a discussion forum but quite a large cohort of posters only want their views heard. I will challenge anyone's views and they can feel free to do the same with mine, I won't complain.

Then there's the posters who can challenge other posters views but throw the toys out of the pan and I don't think it's right that these posters are now trying to call the shots on which posters can and cannot contribute their side of the argument.

There's only a few threads I post on here anyway, people can take it or leave it, but some people simply cannot practice tolerance and want control the output.

So I'll leave it at this. I have no real interest in posting on a forum where I'm on a leash and at the mercy of mob rule. I will let you decide, if Rossfan can drum up 40 posters to join his campaign of controlling output on here then I have no problem leaving, I'd be glad to.

No they didn't.

Itís like a Joe Brolly story.  ;D

I'm sorry to break it to you guys, but it's not the schoolyard any more.

I do have to say I find it utterly pathetic that RossFan goes around telling everyone how he has me on ignore, telling everyone they should do the same and then a few posts later will be contributing snide digs at a poster he claims to have on ignore and wants everyone else to ignore.

I can assure you it's no lie.

Certain posters on here are running behind my back trying to get me banned off the forum. Simply because they cannot tolerate another poster having views and opinions different to them on a discussion forum.

They should at least have the decency to do it in public. If you are one of them, get in touch with Rossfan, he only needs 40 names to put to it and you won't have to deal with me anymore.

This is one of the most egotistical posts Iíve read on this board. Youíd give Trump a run for his money. As if people actually give a sh!te about your posts. You sound like someone who is dying to go out in a blaze of glory when in reality no one cares enough about your posting. Sure youíd just come back again under another name as you did before.  ;D

i am happy to join any list real or imaginary as i believe you are a WUM/Troll as i cannot believe anyone could hold views like yours and misrepresnet other views and repeat them all daily muliple times over muliple threads.

there are others who hold contdractiory views to mine on numerous subjects and ive no issues with that but i think trolling should lead to a permanent ban.

I don't misrepresent views, quite the opposite in fact. It's my views which are consistently twisted by other posters.

Your real issue is that you do not like having your views challenged and your double standards laid bare. Hiding behind a veil of not wanting trolling/wumming is pathetic.

I was made aware that posters have been driving this via backchannels to have me banned/removed off the forum. That's the truth of the matter, it worries me that mob rule is being listened to on here by posters who are not brave enough to handle themselves on here. Some of them should maybe run along to mumsnet.

The only thing I'm doing on another thread is challenging your double standards and exposing them, of course you don't like that.

The fact that you are trying to play the victim because you were exposed as a hypocrite is quite pathetic in my view.

You're actually the one who engaged me on that thread, not the other way around and I showed you up for a hypocrite - now you're sore.

That's the truth of the matter, it worries me that mob rule is being listened to on here by posters who are not brave enough to handle themselves on here. Some of them should maybe run along to mumsnet.

Put up or shut up, very simple.

i believe you were banned for 2 days previously and it was the best two days of discussion on here in a long time.

i am happy to join any list real or imaginary as i believe you are a WUM/Troll as i cannot believe anyone could hold views like yours and misrepresnet other views and repeat them all daily muliple times over muliple threads.

there are others who hold contdractiory views to mine on numerous subjects and ive no issues with that but i think trolling should lead to a permanent ban.

I don't misrepresent views, quite the opposite in fact. It's my views which are consistently twisted by other posters.

Your real issue is that you do not like having your views challenged and your double standards laid bare. Hiding behind a veil of not wanting trolling/wumming is pathetic.

you are currently misreprenting mine on another thread. you have invented my opinions on road deaths smoking etc. the fact that you continue to repsond in the that manner i think shows clearly you are trolling and as a result should be banned.

The only thing I'm doing on another thread is challenging your double standards and exposing them, of course you don't like that.

The fact that you are trying to play the victim because you were exposed as a hypocrite is quite pathetic in my view.

You're actually the one who engaged me on that thread, not the other way around and I showed you up for a hypocrite - now you're sore.

and i regret enaging with you...this is my last reponse to you but this is typical troll behaviour. i have not shared any opinions on all those topics so how can you expose my double standards etc. when you dont know my opinions....

I know you regret engaging with me, no poster enjoys being exposed as a hypocrite like I did with you but you could have helped yourself out there and not have shown such blatant double standards.

It's a bit like how the free state media never want to be drawn into parallels of the old IRA and the IRA post civil war. It's an argument they can't win as they will try everything else rather than address the huge contradictions present.

So I've been made aware from the mod that there are a cabal of posters going through backchannels and putting pressure on them to ban me off the forum

I'm sorry to break it to you guys, but it's not the schoolyard any more.

I do have to say I find it utterly pathetic that RossFan goes around telling everyone how he has me on ignore, telling everyone they should do the same and then a few posts later will be contributing snide digs at a poster he claims to have on ignore and wants everyone else to ignore.

I like most have to suffer RossFan's posts but I'm not the sort of petulant or entitled chap who then tries to get the moderator to ban him off the forum, I would back myself to handle the situation and show him up for what he is and I'd take satisfaction in doing so. Rossfan likes to run behind people's back and try and get them ran off the forum when they show him up.

There's a thing call tolerance. We are all posters here, we all have opinions, we all offer views, it's a discussion forum but quite a large cohort of posters only want their views heard. I will challenge anyone's views and they can feel free to do the same with mine, I won't complain.

Then there's the posters who can challenge other posters views but throw the toys out of the pan and I don't think it's right that these posters are now trying to call the shots on which posters can and cannot contribute their side of the argument.

There's only a few threads I post on here anyway, people can take it or leave it, but some people simply cannot practice tolerance and want control the output.

So I'll leave it at this. I have no real interest in posting on a forum where I'm on a leash and at the mercy of mob rule. I will let you decide, if Rossfan can drum up 40 posters to join his campaign of controlling output on here then I have no problem leaving, I'd be glad to.

If this is true thatís poor form. I do enjoy our jousting even if it can be a complete head melt at times and can see how you can wind up people but thatís still poor form

Sports, culture, history, travelling, socialising, reading, music and food.

Sadly the world does not allow us engage in many of those anymore because people are resorted to fearmongering over a virus that is not a threat to the vast amount of the population.

I'm very principled, I'll have no issue turning my back here. That is where I would differentiate myself from the orchestrators, I don't have to sneak around trying to hide some dirty work - if I had issues with a poster I'm confident enough to address it with them.

I'm also taking some notes. I think by the contributions so far I've got about 6 names, I don't think you're one of them tbf.

I have a fair idea on others but I would hold off on going any further at the minute. Really you'd expect them to come forward and show some guts but not in their nature I assume.

The ironic thing is of all posters to try and control someone's output why on earth would it be Rossfan? Has he ever gone back over his own posts and spotted one that actually contributed something interesting or inisightful to the board? We really need to examine the posters who are trying to set the agenda on the forum at present. Do we really want a forum of nodding donkeys who all agree with each other?

It would be good if the sneaks could reveal themselves.

I wanted to see which debate I humiliated them in that forced them to go underground.

I know for Dublin7 it was when I made a fool of him over the alcohol related deaths, that was shortly after I embarrassed him on the Pfizer CEO.

You have to be a wum surely?

No, no, no.

Dublin7 couldn't answer a question I asked him and the inability to do so completely undermined his erroneous point, he put me on ignore when I pointed out that he didn't answer it.

Some people get very sore about a beating and I have dished out a lot on here.

The Mod(s) need to just enforce the rules

8. Joining up to cause trouble, or to annoy people.
   Occasionally, some people join the board simply to post something abusive, or to 'flame' the board. These people are generally easy to spot (see the F365 invasion last
   year) and have no real interest in the GAA Board. Also some people, who have been banned permanently, rejoin under different usernames and continue with the
   behaviour that led to the ban. By tracking IPs, behaviour and other items, we can sometimes tell this fairly easily, and these users will be banned again.
   
   Penalty - Immediate Permanent Ban

It could be a Gang of Four

Or maybe the Famous Five

Or the Secret Seven

Enid Blyton didn't much like the blacks, which I'm sure the narcissist would appreciate, given his politics seem to be moving ever further in that direction

I think you can also draw the conclusion that "polite English society" in general didn't much like the blacks

Thankfully, I no longer engage with him but see his posts for the comical effect I believe he strives for - comical in that they are a source of entertainment for himself.

I donít think he intelligent at all unless you consider using Google as a type of intelligence. He just ignores replies and questions, demands answers over and over again, changes argument by using incomparable events and presents his own opinions as fact.

His only achievement is getting people to engage and I fell for that too as I believe that when people present lies as facts they should be challenged. He a troll and WUM, so pointless going down any of his rabbit holes.

You have actually been fairly desperate for engagement with me over the past few days but as you have nothing to interesting to say or nothing worthwhile to bring up I've not bothered to respond to the countless posts you've referenced me or replied to me in.

Any poster who does a quick search of your posts will see that is the case and your words read like those of a jilted lover trying to put on a brave face.

Definitely giving the forum a much wider berth these days. I've helped and got help from posters down the years, which is great & shows the worth of the board. There's always someone with experience or skilled in pretty much every field.

Something that I've wondered, do the 2 mega posters have jobs? The time spent in here is incredible.

Leave poor Angelo alone lads, his mum has him locked in his room to do homeschooling but he's skiving off to gaaboard to keep us all in craic. I dread the day of the schools starting back, it'll go all quiet on here.

Just looking for clarification here.

Is it now ok to use a mental illness as a vehicle to slag people off on this board.

Hound thinks it's funny anyway.

The same chap who likes to tell people he has me on ignore and encourage others to do so but then likes to enter into a thread and use a mental illness as a vehicle to insult me when he wasn't involved anywhere.

There's a lot of posters who get up on their soap box here but are you going to accept that kind of stuff? I'll ask you where all of your indignance is now?

I would suggest that both the posters named in the poll above, are given a ban of 30 days or so.

They combine to destroy every active thread on the board. Itís time to find out whether theyíre stealing the boardís oxygen, or are all thatís left of the boardís oxygen.

False equivalence

The irony is that given the sort of personal abuse you throw out at me on a regular basis you could have no complaints about being given the road either

You provide little as a poster and share many of the same characteristics of Qangelo - intolerance of the views of others, a penchant for ad hominems and inability to debate

You also don't understand the line between legitimate opinion and trolling

Generally you get it the wrong way around, confusing one for the other - and I think that's deliberate

Anyhow, I no longer wish to contribute to any thread when you get involved in it. This is entirely down to the fact that within a matter of days, you will try to polarise the thread. Whether itís out of boredom, spite, or some OCD trait, Iím not really sure. But you seem unwilling to stop it, and itís actually getting worse. I canít get keep going through this cycle with you, as youíre clearly losing whatever cop on you may once have had.

And this is me who enjoys an argument. I can only imagine that less abrasive sorts (which is pretty much everyone), just stays away.

This will be my last ever reply to you. If you do get to stay on the board, please enjoy talking to Angelo. It will be just the two of you left before long.

Everything.

Stick some needles in me.

I'm a voodoo doll.

We seem to have a lot of children on here who are unable to turn the other cheek if something is to their liking and then the even bigger children who go running around telling the whole messageboard who they are ignoring and how wonderful it is (while consistently referencing the posters on ignore).

I don't have anyone here on ignore, if I want to ignore them I don't need a messageboard function to do it.
