I genuinely think Albus/Stormzy just gets bored and decides to go absolutely nuclear and get banned. I actually found a PM he'd sent me ages ago after a few bevvies admitting he was Stormzy. He's actually alright IMO, just goes off on too many absolute troll-a-thons.

He's an infinitely better poster than our resident jake who is a never-ending source of spiteful cliches, general self loathing and complete and utter hatred of the fact that he's scottish. Totally weird.

Those are serious allegations. I would like to think you are none of those or else you would be banned from the forum. 

TBF he's had wee "holidays" before. One, hilariously, was for abusing the Report function. He's probably had one for the Big Jock Knew stuff, although it's hard to keep track as most of the currants on here seem to have a weird obsession with that.

What I don’t understand is if quoted individual has posted racist posts he/she/etc should be banned for life according to the rules of the forum.

Racism
We are active supporters of the "Show Racism the Red Card" and will not tolerate racism of any kind on the board. Anyone posting what we deem to be racial abuse will be banned for life.

They are actually trying to claim 'Tartan Gonk' is a racial slur 🙄

Did anyone ever actually refer to Ryan Kent as "Big Jock" in the end? Oh, the banter!

Anyway, I quite liked Stormzy as he started by admitting he was only going to post to troll the libs/nats/jocks/whoever. Never had to read another one of his posts. Why can't they all be so decent?

Give us a heads up when you open your new account m9. Thanks.

In the list of things I've been called over the years @Florentine_Pogen saying I'm a homophobe is a new one.   Hopefully he'll realise he's made an arse of himself.

But you are right.  Homophobic, racist and bigoted comments should be dealt with by the mods.  And it is usually done so in a fair manner.

There is, though, a small group of posters who who feel to scream all sorts of abuse at others and accuse them of whatever they like.  Hopefully this attitude will be weeded out over time.

Something I don’t understand.

Why do you continue to post on here when you get a load of abuse for it?

Personally I wouldn’t be interacting with a random bunch of strangers on an Internet forum that gave me that much grief.  I’d logoff and do something else with my time.  
 

Of course, It’s your choice.  I’d choose differently so have a genuine question about your motivaton.

I post mostly about football.  Well, Rangers.  And I've done so for a long time and see no reason to stop.  It's a multi-club forum so input from fans across the spectrum is what makes the board work.

I sometimes post about politics.  That my mainstream view on a border-free Britain and border-free Europe gets a few daft wee diddies on here in a froth is hardly my problem.

Almost overwhelmingly the blokes who post on here are great and I have a good relationship with posters from many different clubs.  Why should I stop posting because of about a dozen NatWit boors?

If we are all having a moan about moderating inconsistency it was weird that a warning post went up on a sub-forum about name calling where I assume 90% of folk are, if not fully on the wind up, knowing exaggerations of themselves. Everyone in that sub-forum has bought into the game.

At the same time minimising or condoning of rape seemed to be legitimate and accepatble points of view in the marketplace of ideas at the time as is transphobia currently.

Could be wrong, but I got the impression that just went up because the mods got sick of people whining to them. A better sticky would've been, "abandon hope all ye who enter, for thou shalt receive thy just rewards".

Funny, you'd think the NSFW subforum would be where the controversial action would be at.

Aye he was ok if you just kept the discussion on track. 

It was hilariously obvious it was stormzy but calling it out sent him into troll mode so there wasn’t much point.

To be fair, it's not something you see a lot of on here from the regulars. Any BJK stuff is emptied out pretty quickly for what I've seen.

Wider social media is a different story. The 'outrage' at Celtic's past child abuse scandals in itself is one thing.

However, the fact that a great many of them can both be 'outraged' by it yet simultaneously openly revel in the fact it happened - an excuse to use fucking historical sexual abuse of children to point score - is truly one of the most bizarre and disturbing traits of Rangers as a fanbase.

That and all the creepy flag shagging, though both sides are very guilty of that.

Hmmm.

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not seeing the equivalence here that you're suggesting.

I don't know the context the remark arose in, but on the face of it, "tartan gonks" strikes me as an  effective use of imagery.

Albus was alright, he obviously just got a bit bored and started trying to rifle into folk.

Some CV update he's got now though "Banned from illustrious online football forum for relentless trolling of hay fever sufferers".

Long may your candle burn, brother.

Pinning down the meaning of transphobia and then taking 'consistent' moderating action would work out even more badly than letting NilByMouth arbitrarily choose what is and isn't sectarian language (tit for tat Old Firm fans - nominate anything you don't like to hear and it goes in!). 

That doesn't mean that some objective transphobia does not exist, but you'd be opening up an enormous can of worms by demanding consistency based on the current state of that debate.

Probably and that's fair.

They should just ban vexatious litigants.

Why not ask the mods? Perhaps he was on a last warning for being a bigoted p***k? 

Stranger things have happened with watery runs. 

This post is very funny to me.

People love to cry about sectarianism and then use rhyming slang for a bigoted slur. It’s great when you see it in the same post.

Its even funnier that the mods allow it.

Except said terms has never been bigoted or sectarian, despite your shrieking insistence that it is

Maybe. I think I just found it incongruous that name calling seemed to be the line in the sand.
