Isn't that exactly what happened to your buddy who resorted to calling someone a w@nker because he couldn't accept the right of others to hold an opinion that differed to his own.


It became a little personal but I understand Stirling's frustration when dealing with people who are so completely disingenuous. He believes in straight talking and honesty.
My personal view is that if you dish it out on here then you have to take it with good grace. There are various forms of attack that can be employed, but the mods enforce rules to maintain civility when it gets too hostile. I'll not complain about that. This place is many levels above that disgusting cesspit that is the BBS and the moderating here is largely responsible for that. Yours was fine, until you started calling people racists. That was just idiotic.

I have been carded here a few times, most of which were fair, a few that was not. Do I lose sleep over that?
Shockingly for you perhaps, I have far more important things to worry about.
If you are going to moderate then you have to keep personal prejudices out of it. Some have failed to do that in the past.

Back on topic. People leave these boards for their own reasons. No one makes them leave. If they go because they don't like particular opinions or particularly opinionated posters then they should join a site that echoes their own views. They clearly can't handle opposition.
From what I see, there is a wide rage of views on here and that is fine with me. Echo chambers are for wimps and cowards.

To be honest, I have often considered disappearing into the long grass, not because I am an over-sensitive soul (Far from it!), but for the fact that my 'Raison D'Etre' for joining HOL was to engage in mature and sensible debate about our club and football matters in general with fellow supporters.

Alas I have found myself getting involved in contretemps to answer lacerating charges from those who use me as the 'Human dartboard', needling and gnawing away at me akin to a jabbering woodpecker.

If I decide to bring the curtain down on HOL, I will depart without any fanfares or announcement and some might ponder as to why it has gone rather silent on the Willo front !!

Oh, Willo, please don't go. I've been keeping an eye on this site for ages, but only created a profile to participate less than a year ago.

I wanted to join in the fun and your 'legendary' status and humorous comments were one of the reasons I did so.

There is a small minority on here who revel in the modern need for creating mischief, but they are of no significance. Best ignored. I have noted some recent barbs aimed in your direction. A few have come my way. But, best ignored. Sticks and stones an' all that.

However, it's no surprise that some folk may choose to no longer contribute if they feel their input is just ridiculed or abused. Shame though it is.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

This is most kind of you and I thank you for your kind sentiments, however I have never considered myself to have "Legendary Status" on HOL nor will I ever attain such a place on the pantheon.

I am mere nimble lightweight dullard and bow down to all those luminaries,polymaths and savants who truly add value to this cherished site.

OK, merely a perception of mine.

But your response to my response serves to confirm that your input makes me chuckle.
