Done. that will do. cheers

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.

A concept straight out of Pyongyang with a much needed bit of self censorship, brilliant.

Think I’ll try a bit of the same tomorrow.

I'm gonna ring up my newsagent and ask him to cut out all the bits from my Daily paper that I disagree with and that are not funny. Trouble is I’ll be left with just the TV listings.

Autocracy as defined in the English Oxford Collins Dictionary is....Dictatorship, one person controlling a group of people. Governed by a single individual having unlimited power.
Tyranny, Despotism, Absolutism.

The righteous rise
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right
Confident their ways are best.........

and those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves.........

Quick to judge
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand...    :048:

Someone keeps deleting my calm and inoffensive posts.  I wonder if the enforcer who is indeed superior and aware of the rules i am breaking, please explain why.  I'd hate to do it again.

Funny comments from the terraces, amusing chants and outbursts from suporters have been part and parcel of the football experience since the game began.

Humour is an essential part of football.

Well said sir.
Absolutley, and following Fulham without a joke, small doses of sarcasm and the  odd digression would become a terrible bore.

Quite rightly said. Some of the shenanigans we have seen from the various boards and owners over the decades might even intimate the joke is on us to keep supporting! Though, such miscreants are likely well aware, we support our club through thick and thin, and they are mere caretakers of the club and it's name, not the be-all and end-all.
Logical is just in the name - don't expect it has anything to do with my thought process, because I AM the man who sold the world.

I think everyone who sympathizes with the OP has a particular "burr in the saddle" in mind. Each of us has the ability to block any posters comments. I've used this to keep my blood pressure low. The site's doo-dahs also allow me to override my own ban if there exists a chance that a particular comment might actually be of interest to me.

For the folk on my "ignore" list, I'd say that for every 75 or so posts that are permanently ignored, there's one or two that I look at in hopes that it might contain something intelligent, insightful, and contributory. I DO find them and am the better for it when I do.

So, you don't need the MODs to ban folks; you can do it yourself.

The issue isn't people having a laugh on here and making attempts at humour. Let's face it, if you can't laugh as a Fulham Fan then there's not much hope for any of us.

But there's a time and a place for the silly stuff, the sarcastic stuff, the banter. Sometimes the art of someone who is funny is that they have the talent for assessing the appropriate moment to act the clown or pull out the one liner. Unfortunately sometimes this isn't the case and debates are drowned out by irrelevant desperate behaviour to get a few laughs.

Fulham is a fun place, a wonderful place to spend my weekends. But not all debates and conversations need to be taken over by nonsense at 100mph.

It's about balance at the end of the day. Unfortunately certain people have been asked several times to tone it down but if it hasn't improved then the only way to stop it is to ban them. Then you get criticism for dictating blah blah blah. The wide range of characters and people that visit this site make it impossible to create a balance that pleases everyone. So you can't win but the majority are fantastic and make FOF a great place to discuss Fulham. The ones that disagree and think elsewhere is better are entitled to their opinion but it's a wonder why they are still posting here instead.  :023:

Keep up the good work 99% of you. Or I'll bar ya...... :dead horse: 051

You're a moderator.  Perhaps you can tell me why someone deleted my calm, mature and inoffensive posts?  I merely said the equivalent of 'that piece of halibut was good enough for jehovah' and both got deleted.

Awaiting a good stoning.

Go into McDonald's and try selling KFC to the queue of customers. See if they let you. Basically what one of your posts did to us. It's a free world, free speech but our interests are to keep FOF strong so there's a line.

I've only just got on here properly today so it wasn't me before you start returning those stones lol.  And I'm not aware of multiple posts, just the one.

If you're confused then please pm me. It's not a popular method going public.
