    Happy to repeat anything I've ever written face to face, hardly vile abuse.

    By their own admission the vast majority on here are getting on in years a bit.
    Bit ironic that some take offense very quickly yet would condemn the younger generation for being over sensitive.

    Why not just let things run. what's the worst outcome?
    Someone flounces off or gets the sulks, not exactly the end of the world.
    After all you can just choose to not look at a particular section or thread

    No point making anyone feel uncomfortable, know some of my views are not over popular
    Saw a small group with the forum name badges on (three men and a woman) but thought better of it.

      Proved what?
      I didn't feel the need to make anyone feel uncomfortable if someone was there who had disagreed with me on a forum.
      Did you go?

        I often disagree with people both in fora and in person, and visa versa. At no time would this ever stop me from enjoying their company over a coffee or a pint. Had the disagreement been aggressive, confrontational or obnoxious then I may feel differently but probably still say Hello.

        No I didn't go to the exhibition so you were spared that torment

          Exactly my point, how do you know they enjoyed your company though?
          Maybe if you're lucky you can enjoy my company one day

            What's not to like about being in the company of an old, paid in all my life, flag waver and gammon such as myself ? Besides, I'd no doubt end up buying the drinks.

              If only there was a way to put a tone of voice intonation into typed comments on the internet then all the hassle would be avoided and moderation would be easy and stress free.

                Re: Recent Thread Closure

                As I have suggested previously, I am increasingly coming to the view that we need an image of Zuiko showing a red or yellow card to offenders on the forum. That way everything would be open and transparent, and there would be fair warning of impending thread closures and sendings off. Anyone whining to the Referee trying to get others sent off should be sent for an early bath themselves.

                In the meantime honourable members need to learn to play the ball, not each other. That way politics and other sensitive subjects can be discussed without them getting personal. As above, anyone who cannot abide by this rule should either receive a few hours in the 'sin bin' or treated to an early bath.

                As in society, it is offenders who should be made to face justice. Taking away the freedoms of one and all is never a satisfactory solution and will always cause bad feeling.

                  The problem is when Admin do visit, for whatever reason they don't always see or recognise offensive posts. In that case, whining to the referee is the only alternative other than taking things into your own hands. Experience proves this only ends up in a slanging match between the complainant, offending member concerned and their Fan Boys.

                  Just for the record, at least I whined to the referee in the open playing field for all to see as opposed to sneaking behind members backs and using PM's. Am I still relegated to an early bath in your opinion

                  Your final comment is one I have made myself in here with not a hope in hell of ever seeing it put into practice. Closing a thread is obviously far easier and less stressful and confrontational than having to deal with the offending member concerned who simply waits a while for things to cool down and the saga begins again.

                  As always just my personal opinion which as a member ( for now anyway ) I believe i'm entitled to express.

                    No; because you complained to the Referee during play, in full public view and not in the changing rooms.

                      I think we need a league table of naughtiness and our position on it.

                        Hmmm seems a bit harsh ! I'm always very careful in those changing rooms. I buy Soap On A Rope and hang it round my neck. Dropping soap in the shower is anything but advisable.
