Angelo would would make you miss Fearon

I think time will show Angelo to be a legend of this board. The man is running multiple arguments on multiple threads, I've no idea how he does it  ;D

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'd be cool if you could read this in the crayon font it was meant to be read in

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.

Not a chance, just a very determined man....

I vote Angelo to stay, personally I think he's a brilliant WUM. He's got a feud going with about 10 people at one go  ;D

FFS the man craves attention. Good or bad. Heís the Boardís Joe Brolly. This whole saga is just another way to try and get more attention. I honestly think itís not a healthy sign. Do you believe the mods emailed him and said ďhere just want to give you the heads up, thereís an agenda to get you banned. If they get 40 names Iím going to have to ban you.Ē

Private message actually.

I've offered the 40 names as a compromise, if I can shame the people trying to clandestinely orchestrate banning a poster than has made them look silly in debates then it's a price I'm willing to pay for walking away. I want these posters to come forward and show their face and what they are asking for rather than sniping from the sidelines.

In order for posters to get their wish they will to have lose something themselves.

Spending the guts of a working day on here everyday can't be good for anyone's wellbeing. That's some emotional attachment... Something has to give, no?

FFS you could never walk away. You crave the attention hence this Joe Brollyisque story. Youíd only land back under another name as you did before.
