    I agree, but if everyone just ignores them, then most of that problem goes away, which is what I and Brumbers are advocating

    Been on it for a while tbh. Got a bit sick of the bull**** about the city I've lived in all my life, then being told I know nothing about it, though have relented occasionally to see whats going on, because there usually were one or two decent posts in there before.

    I do sort of agree, actually. It's not the ideal solution, but with certain posters you know you aren't going to be able to get a reasonable debate out of them and more or less what they're going to say anyway, so it's no real loss.

    Feel sorry for noobs at the moment because we have quite a few members who're essentially just long-term trolls.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Having just seen the thread in question, I do have some sympathy towards sledger's point of view.

    I would like to add though, that the animosity shown between sledger and Pratters of late is pretty ****ty too though, and completely unnecessary from both sides. Unless I've somehow missed the 'comedy stylings' of this somewhere along the line? That's not as bad as the "Football Thread", but it has derailed the "Movie Thread" for a short time.

    Fair enough, can take that on board, would like to add though, that I only give as good as I get, and desist when warned.

    Yeah, wasn't meant to be targetting you unfairly as its clearly a case of give & take, but I guess its a similar (if less pronounced) example of the same thing.

    Seriously though it's the most bizarre thing I've seen on this forum in all my time here, and it's happened at least twice in the last week.

    Not sure of the precise incidents, but CC has been awful over the last few months. I know its copped **** over the years but I think that's from people who don't like debating cricket.

    But recently, it's sending even the debaters nuts.
