    This isn't the place for me to be airing my views on C_C - not that they were straightforward in any case. He was a very, very complex fellow.

    In Scaly's case I don't think the trait of not caring about what people thought about him is very good thing. Basically he's miserable, offensive and bigoted and IMO has no redeeming features bar being able to sort letters out into words.....

    But like sledger said, he is funny once you realise what he really is. BTW sorry for saying that mods, but I really do think it.

    It's not complicated:
    majority of opinion: The consensus of the group was that they should meet twice a month.
    general agreement or concord; harmony

    He doesn't know the meaning of a lot of words, and TBH looking at this thread irony is definitely the main one he doesn't get.

    This thread has become really quite unpleasant about Scaly, really should be locked IMHO.

    He doesn't attack a poster, does he? I think we are becoming intolerant if we can't tolerate stuff like 'Arsenal is ****' (which they really are, sorry Brumby).

    I haven't checked out the details why he was banned, so I could be wrong though.

    Actually I do, a great many.

    Nah, I get it full well - it just doesn't apply as some would like it to.

    @Richard :- So where is the proof that is what the Majority of opinion. FTR, here itself you are in minority (on C_C).

    Well IMO he just brings down the whole atmosphere of the threads he posts in by just being negative about everything and targeting groups of people and then just abusing them, like he did in the case of the Scottish people. Just seems to me that he doesn't exactly give much respect to many people...

    I completely agree with this. Lock the thread.

    I'm well aware I am - most people thought C_C was either a decent sort or an idiotic sort; people like me who thought a bit of both aren't very common.

    There can be no proof of the majority of opinion, nor do I have any real need to prove it - I'm merely well aware of it.

    If there is no proof then do not make such claims. Just speak for yourself and not the forum majority. You do NOT represent the forum majority.

    Sanz was a very nasty poster back in the day to us Tendulkar fans like Jono, me and Sudeep but he didn't break any forum rules. So we tolerated his opinion. An unpleasant poster is okay as long as he is not breaking forum rules.

    Nor did I claim to do such. I merely informed about what that majority was. People can either accept or refuse to accept that information - that's their choice.

    My opinion of C_C, I repeat, is different from majority opinion.
