Thing with the football thread is that it openly appeared that a/some people/person was getting free reign with his ignorance/stupidity/downright denial that he could actually be wrong whilst the people that felt they were talking to an aggressive wall eventually snapped and made it personal due to a lack of other options in the face of such blatant denial of his/her's general poor and invalid points and then it was these people that were told to cool it and not make the situation worse.
Just seems that there's a mental flag that gets thrown up when there's a personal insult and the general context gets ignored. It's by no means solely this moderator group as it's definitely happened in the past too. Generally 95% of the time i have no quibbles to made regarding this, but there needs to be more...i guess open-ness regarding posters that are 'problems' as it's generally a last resort like today when us rank and file know for sure that stuff is going on behind the scenes.
This isn't really me having a go, but just calling for a better understanding so the majority know something is going on regarding the tiny minority.
