To the og poster's missive you have added around six of your own, mainly about yourself. Tiresome attention seeker.

I refute this risible accusation.
If you truly knew me you would certainly NOT draw such a conclusion.

Some of my contributions have been in response to others who drew me into the debate, some just general comments with 'Yours Truly' not the focus of attention.

I am not going to respond to any more barbs as I really do not wish this to disintegrate into contretemps which divert the discussion away from the subject matter.

You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

I have been a member of this site for what is probably 20 years. I have watched and supported Palace for 60 years. Regrettably I am going to be leaving this site in a few days time. (Yes I know I won't be missed).

Living out of London for the last 50 years I have always enjoyed finding any Palace chat I can with fellow supporters. This site has been wonderful for that. Regrettably, the last few years I believe this site has changed, that as we have had season after season in the top division significant numbers of people here seem to have lost all sense of reason and all connection with reality.

In my view this site should be about pleasure and enjoyment, sharing the ups and downs of supporting Palace with all the other lunatics like me. Instead it has become a whingefest, especially at transfer window time. "Why doesn't Parrish open his wallet?". "why don't we buy a,b,c,.......................z?", "why have we not unloaded s*** player a,b,c....?", and on and on.

There is no pleasure here on this site for me now. I will wish you all well.

Up The Palace!!!

Jesus, I read this post with absolute delight. I don't think I've ever seen anything on HOL that's left me feeling so instantly happier. And then I looked at the top and realised that Willo WASN'T the author.

Well, this was your first response:

As with all such sites one witnesses a smorgasbord of opinions, vacuous platitudes and rhetorical panache.On occasions high-grade waffle is interspersed with execrable bile,declamatory posts and members lacerated, facing shot and shell.

However one is also subjected to great bouts of insight and knowledge, humour and positivity and contributions which essay great wells of oratory.

I made the decision twice to take a sabbatical from HOL concluding that I had become a varmint and not adding any value to this cherished site, however I was honoured and humbled to receive enquiries as to my well-being and messages of support much to my surprise.
Should I be of this mindset again, I will take the same course of action as I have no desire to outstay my welcome.

There's not a single direct reference to the person who made the thread. But you referred to yourself 8 times.

Please don't turn this into another Willo thread as it's why I have been on a sabbatical before.

And back on subject...farewell midlands for now!

Well, it's funny because I recall a time when the likes of Steve Parish and (allegedly) Neil Danns frequented this site, but also found the audience to be largely bellends. DRT was one of the aforementioned bellends, with some ill-advised requests to retrieve some coins he'd lost, if I recall correctly. So he was banned rather than flounced.

Do bellends realised they're bellends? Am I a bellend?

Hands up if you're a bellend.

not sure, but ive seen your ' full kit w***er' photo.
A tad fat to be wearing that.

With the greatest of respect, I was merely giving an account of the reasons for my absence from HOL in response to the message from 'Midlands' who asserted he had decided to leave this cherished site.

I am sure that there are those who will conclude I am self-deprecation rather than self-promotion.
I have responded to the risible 'Charges', accordingly I have no further comment to make.

When I concluded that it was best that I cease from posting, I made no announcement whatsoever. I was then humbled and indeed very surprised to receive messages enquiring as to my well-being and messages of support.
If at some stage I am of the same mindset, I shall just disappear quietly into the long grass and HOL will be a 'Willo Free' zone.

Oh my goodness Willo, will you give it a rest.

Me, me, meÖ.

This is not about you and your self promotion. A thread started by midlandspalace does not need to be hijacked by you in this seemingly never ending need to be the centre of attention.

I refer you to my ripostes to the risible accusations which are far removed from the actualite.
Rest assured this is my last post on this thread.
