Face it, Scrat ...we will never be among the 'sainted/anointed' ones that get away with so much vitriol and vicious attacks ---even when the number of FEEL GOOD THREADS get submitted ...they just become fodder for the hate mongers and nothings ever done about them Rolling Eyes

SYL'S actually quite jealous of so many others around here...

No matter how hard she tries, she just can't lift herself up from being so low class in everything she does --  generally achieving only 3rd, 4th or 5th class, or even lower, results from her endeavours on this forum..

And she really does want to impress Major, Ragg's and Deano with everything she writes against their erstwhile opponents on here  !

Syl may well find Stormee odious and obnoxious --  there would be something wrong if she didn't...

But, that doesn't stop her from still being one of  Major's main supporters and apologists against his opponents on here (along with Magica and Ragg's -- those three are the 'Majorettes'..).

I reckon Horatio is/has been a more frequent and strident critic of Major's..

Otherwise, I leave both Syl and HT (and Major and Tommy too..) on my 'Foes list' most of the time.

Read your posts back over the last week or so you stupid woman! You've gotten away with breaking the rules for ages!!

Now this is your very last attack. Next time if you attack for no fucking reason you're banned.
Every admin is backing this 4ever - so be warned.

That's fine we know now so you don't need to arrive on every thread and announce it do you?

Here's an idea: you and 4ever open a thread and simply post about the thread topic yes???

Never thought i'v find so many geranium on one Forum, but i'v certainly found 'em on here. Wolfie, 4ever, veya, handy, ziz, sassy. all spouting left wing shit, not one of them been out in the real world. They should get together and start a new Forum, call it "Shit for brains" then they could spend all day congratulating each other on how clever they are and give each other greens for every post.

Not been out in the real world?   You're having a giraffe.   I fended for myself, seen the world properly working in it and not from behind a gun and wasn't told what to do and where to go and I didn't let anyone tell me it was ok to go into someone else's country and wreck havoc.

One only has to consider the SOURCE for all of that   to know that he's goading and just trying to suck up to the MODS! 
The only time he's ever written more than one single line of vile attack {granted it's still a vile filled attack} but he did manage an entire paragraph!

Nothing to add to the thread and only minutes after being warned....

You are banned for three days for continually breaking this rule:

You are expected to participate in a manner that promotes debate, not fighting. That doesn't mean that we expect there to be no fighting. But members who routinely turn a majority of the threads in which they're participating into slinging matches will be considered a nuisance and subjected to temporary bans, over and over again if necessary, until they figure out how to stop doing that, or a permanent ban.

If you return and you continue this behaviour your ban will be longer.

I don't think that is a fair and justified post.
Keep personal shit off the thread nicko.

Action will be taken now against any poster who shows up simply to be vile about someone else.

I apologise for that Eddie, my excuse is that so many of the "lefty" posters continually insult and deride the r/w whatever they post.

I may be wrong but that's how I see it.

In future i'll just ignore them.

The fact the far right are the far right is offensive in itself, especially when they parade racism as patriotism or they use their Christianity as a weapon, or abuse others because they can get away with it.

They wouldn't dare act like this in real life, but their agenda is sponsored and defended online.

Who gives a shit if you're offended. You're offended by default. You want to be offended. You need to be offended. It behooves you to be offended.

That post is clearly a "subtle" attack on some posters - not subtle enough though.

May I comment on that.

This is true of Syl, also other forum ladies including Ragamuffin and Magica have ruffled my feathers many a time, the difference is they are genuine respectable truthful people, not liars, have clean mouths and minds whom I respect and would never do unto them any different.
Some men on here also fall into my preferred category.
Simple really.

I cannot stand any one with a vile mouth or who is a rotten liar.
Simple really.


self hate is a terrible thing to have to bear Major......

lol!
Exactly, I get outright abuse from several far right fuckwits like yourself, difference is, I don't fucking whine about it, I give it back because that's all you're worthy of, and then you and the herd run to mods, cwying and snivelling and crawling on all fours to the mods whinging about it.

If you don't like to be offended, I would suggest you don't attempt to offend me.

You get abuse in RETALIATION.

Tell you what, lets try something and put this to the test shall we?
Don't be rude and see if anyone is rude to you.

Okay so you don't want to take the test.
Just say so, no need for excuses.


But I've put it out there now. Wink

As with everything it's a matter of common sense. Yes it's ludicrous for people to run around taking offence at everything.  But freedom of speech can be used by bullies as an excuse for outright bullying. Suicides have resulted, in extreme cases.

If we ever have a child or grandchild with cerebral palsy, severe autism or some severe genetic disease of course we would love them unconditionally. How would we feel if complete strangers in the street used their fabled 'freedom of speech' to refer to them in crude unPC terms?

Common sense is the solution to everything.

I don't think shutting people up actually stops other people getting hurt.
Otherwise you'd have to ban all words and all actions and there's no stopping....it just keeps going on and on until we cannot speak or act for fear of upsetting someone.

Most people don't really act that way. They don't see a child in the street and abuse it with words for being disabled.

It used to work better before the www.
Stand up comics like Bernard Manning and Chubby Brown, programmes like Love thy neighbour and Till death us do part, they were pulled off TV, so if anyone wanted to see comedians telling jokes about blacks, women, disabled, etc, they had to actually go out and pay to see them in clubs.

Now everything, no matter how offensive to some, is all over the internet.

When it comes to free speech or lack of forums, they are for everyone, and everyone will find something offensive. If you pussyfooted round everyone it would turn into a knitting forum.

I am offended by the clicking of knitting needles and mumblings of "knit one, pearl one..."

No idea why you have cited such an extreme scenario. Surely you don't think anyone would suggest this?

Of course I didn't mean that people would suddenly start abusing a child in the street. I meant people using very hurtful words to describe the child within earshot of his /her and the parents, and not even realising it's wrong to do so.
