So in this instance the poster is fairly unfortunate that one of the mods is a QoTS fan? 

I have no idea. I was only suggesting that there is probably no point in asking.

We should have a mix of full and part time players .
Raith do that it seems to be working for them.
The full time players they have train Monday and Friday through the day then a Tuesday and Thursday night with the part time players they have .
This we must be 100 % full time I just don't get especially now most players at our level are looking to go part time we could offer players both .
On the manager thing can we get any better than AJ who would want to manage a struggling Queens 
 
 

I think we’re down to just one part time player now, so arguably it’s a big hinderance that we’re training evenings because of him.

No. 

If he was posting the same drivel on other teams forums then another mod would have kicked him out.

People are getting too wound up about this "Messi"  poster.  He's had more bites on here than someone that's been attacked by a swarm of midges. Put him on ignore or simply don't give him the pleasure of winding you up. The bar must be set quite low if he's been banned for taking the piss  out of Queens and their fans. Tbqh,  a few Queens fans are actually posting much the same as he is about the calibre of our signings,  our poor/non-existent win record,  etc,  it's just that he allegedly supports Raith Rovers not QoS.

If M got the bullet then GRANT228 could be next in the firing line. I have never got the "Being obsessed with another Clubs threads" but as long as it is reasonably inoffensive guess it does little harm.

I don't see how that would be justified either.

Messi is clearly  at it a bit, enjoying some sport at our expense, but that's one of the chief purposes of this place.

 

I've no idea how that lands anyone a ban.  I'd have thought that required personal abuse, threatening behaviour or something like racism.  

It seems a bit ridiculous if it can happen for slagging off a football team.  I'm not sure how many posters will be left if that's going to earn a ban for everyone who does it.

It's the type of poster that puts others off visiting the site, I can well see why mods would choose to get rid.

It is, but if him being banned means 2 others stick around, then it's worthwhile. The forum is a business, at the end of the day.

That's the thin end of something.

If you tolerate this etc.

 

It doesn't sit right with me, but I'm probably in a minority.

Meh, he was an obvious troll. It wasn't like he was adding valuable content elsewhere on the forum.

Was there not a poster called Truthy several years ago who was banned for the same thing?

Who said he was banned? Maybe he just saw the error of his ways, PMd me to apologies for being a tedious troll and promised never to post again

He's a tedious troll with one line of material. If he was funny or clever with it I'd say it was a harsh ban. As it was he just spammed the place. I'm sure the Raith posters are just as happy to see him in time-out. Hopefully his reincarnation can be more imaginative but given his new name I'm doubtful.

Nah I don't really see the justification for it really, virginton has been on the windup for years and AFAIK he's never been booted. 

 

I'm not even sure MessiScott was that big a troll, he made some comments about Queens poor summer recruitment, are you going to ban the poster who keeps posting about the QoTS defence being terrified of crosses, or when posters want AJ fired?

I'm not obsessed with any clubs threads, I'd put the Dunfermline thread in with that aswell, I just go on PnB, have a look at some threads, and then post. If I wanted to be on a forum where all I read was Dunfermline related posts I'd go on a Dunfermline forum. 

I have never got the "So and so is obsessed with *insert team here* because he posts on our thread" If you don't like fans from other teams posting in other teams threads then PnB isn't for you. 

The best bit about PnB is having fans of other teams viewpoints.

I'd say given your reaction he's been incredibly smart with it, never has anyone so effortlessly wound up a support as much as this. Fair enough you might find him annoying, but ultimately Calling Queens poor atm is hardly pointing anything new out.

That's a fair point. The only thing that was annoying was how repetitive it was. But I agree being annoying and not actually abusing or threatening anyone doesn't warrant a ban. It is easy to ignore but not so much after you've read the same noncense 10 times.

If it was "some" posts I think folk wouldn't care. He's a "new" poster who spent the majority of his posts commenting on another sides signings. Bizarre behaviour at the very least. VT at least has a discussion even when he's on the wind-up.

Discussing the number of crosses we concede or whether or not AJ should be sacked are exactly the kind of things you'd expect to see being discussed in our club's thread given it's the major issues concerning us right now. Merely saying "the team isn't good enough" every single post is tedious nonsense that adds nothing to the thread. We had an apparent QoS poster banned a while back for posting similar shite all the time.

You've mixed up smart with boring. The aforementioned VT has been smart with his windups, this guy just spouted the same nonsense all the time with nothing new or original. He effortlessly spammed the thread. I don't think any QoS fan had anything close to a Heads Gone with him tbh.

Aye, I can't remember anyone having a heads gone with him, but then similarly I don't think he was saying anything massively contentious, AFAIK (and I definitely won't have as good a handle as regular visitors to this thread) during pre season he posted allot about how you're signings were bad, but that was during a time where there had been no football, and little new football discussions for almost 7 months, people all over went a bit overboard on transfer talk. Has it been as bad since the season resumed?
