.....amazing how quickly the pillocks have materialised since chrisblanc made the forum open to all.

Please not that I have altered this slightly.

If you have not registered then you can only read the post.

To reply then you have to register.....

.....sorry to all who don't agree with this!

Beat me to it <img src="/images/graemlins/achso.gif" alt="" />

Its a shame that the odd fool ruins it for the other posters from elsewhere who have a genuine point to make.

Unless posts have been zapped off here, none of the posts I have read have been offensive..
Emotional yes... inaccurate at times yes.. controversial yes...
and to be fair, at least some have been interesting and thought provoking , which is the first time you can say that about this board for long while.

Why are we so scared of open debate ?

If people want to post criticism about the on or off field activities ( hopefully in a registered name but failing that ,under the cover of secrecy ) so be it. (But how secret can it be when the moderators can obtain no end of information from the ISP address !!)

We have got to be big enough to handle it, and if there are enough people who think the club is going the right way , then that is the voice that will be heard.

Many on this board are parnoid of criticism and toys are thrown out of prams too many times.

I can understand why people are upset with some of the goings on ( or goings out to be precise ) at the moment but I do believe and have faith in the Management of Andy and Brian, and could see a quite a few positives from Thursdays game, and remain upbeat for the season. ( But we do need a striker )

Up the Fleet - But I can't be arsed with this board any more..


PS. Why did we paint the outside of the social club in Darts colours ( Thats no dig at those that gave up the time to paint it, but surely red and white would have been better than black and white )

Things were starting to get a wee bit out of hand so maybe, in this instance, it was a fair move. Let's be positive, keep the faith and cheer on the Fleet. And the reason the walls were painted black & white was so we can wee up them without retaliation!!!! (Jess, joke..promise!!!)

Read the 6th post down as an example of why anonymous posters are not wished for by many.....

Nothing wrong with open debate.
I'll even admit that the example above was Shrews Loyal alledgedly, but if we (the moderators) went through the posts made during a completely open board then there are loads of other idiots out there who have been offensive whilst hiding under a cloak of secrecy as to their identity.....

But if these people have something to say then WHY DON'T THEY REGISTER?
After all, if they feel so strongly about what they say then they would back their beliefs?
Or do they have some reason to need to hide?

OK no problem.

It would appear that we get the 'anonymous idiot problem' everytime the board is opened to all.

The crazy thing is that they don't have to login with their real name.
Even their e-mail can be kept hidden from all but the admin team.

Can I get a free pint John?

A fair part of this is my fault I guess. A lot of people were asking for the forum to become non registered, so I put the call out to the other moderators to see if anyone minded, it's here I screwed the pooch, so to speak.

You would think that having 4 moderators makes things easy to organise, but it doesn't. We all have to be around at the same time, agreeing together and generally all in the same mindset to get things done. This doesn't always happen, so people do things on their own. That's what I did.

I had asked everyone what they thought. The replies came back fairly even, so I made the decision to make things unmoderated, no one else, me. There's no one else to be pissed at, just me. Things had been fine, and I thought that changing the forum wouldn't affect anything. Pehaps I was wrong.

Today, I have got into a row with an anonymous user (although, not that anonymous), I've been angrier than I've ever been on this forum, but that's how it is.

In the last few days, we've seen more posts from new people than in months. Do we agree with what they have to say? God I hope not. Would we have more time for them if they would sign their name? definately. But difference of opinion is what the forums are all about, and opening the forums brings in more users, so it's something that perhaps we should grin and bear.

Lets get on to the things that matter, after all the doom and gloom (from others, no me lol) we have a team that might, JUST MIGHT make it past tomorrow (again, a pop at the naysayers, if you didn't get it).
But please, let's get back to the things that matter, and above all, let's support our club, players and manager, and trust that they want the same things that we do.

Finally, things were said earlier about my abuse of position with me changing an anonymous users post so as to suggest that he was calling himself a dip$hit. I shouldn't have done it. It was petty and childish. Sometimes I find myself far funnier than than I actually am.

There were unfounded accusations of this kinda thing before I came here, and that's why the decision was made to have more than one moderator. My changing a post lessened the job that others do here. So I am sorry, and it won't happen again (although I will still correct people's spelling where I feel fit to do so)

Sorry for the long post, but things needed clearing up, and whatever I said earlier on, I still think I'm damn funny, and that "Mr Anonymous" (you know who you are), is a dip$hit who don't know what he's talking about.


UP THE FLEET!!!!!
