    WW - are you really located in Brazil? Or are you caught in the bureaucratic dystopia of Terry Gilliam?

    I want to address this point and I will start a thread to make my point.

    I'm not going to pass comment on WW's tantrum, but this I think is now a point that gets repeated a great deal and needs attention. If people don't know what happens to their reports, then they feel moved to take the law into their own hands and are more likely to retaliate rather than follow procedure.

    Hurricane has spotted another unusual posting pattern and has to investigate.

    He's CricketWeb's answer to Roger Cook. Can't wait for the latest expose, Hurricane!

    Ponty had enough attention on this site, quite frankly, and his flounce got nowhere near as much attention as Martin Crowe's A Grade performance and that's not really fair on the Legend that is Pont.

    Starting to spot a pattern with you tbh.
    But I think I'll start with an expose on how Parrots are unhygienic and how parrot lovers are often passed over for promotion.

    Now i'm fully aware when i'm in the wrong and i've taken my punishments before, but is that really a banning offence? really? in that post i haven't insulted anyone i've just basically put down the facts, but evidently that was enough to get me a one week ban without a warning or explanation,

    If the rules were the same for everyone i'd have no issues, but just a few days earlier a poster said this to me...



    It's pretty clear what said poster was implying but there was no action taken even after i made the mods aware of it.. ,

    I'm probably the only WI fan who actually spends a decent amount of time on these forums, most of the others that were here when i first signed up have either been driven away or banned for good, i'm not asking for special treatment, but when the double standards are as blatant as the example i provided above then it leaves me wondering whether WI fans really have a place around here at all,

    In closing what this post does for my future here is anyones guess, but i'm not a fan of walking on egg shells and that's exactly what i'd have to do if i didn't speak up.

    cheers

    Sounds good. You've already clearly got more of an idea about what's going on than I do.

    That's not really my point though, the question is which post was worse? clearly it wasn't mine, therefore why was i banned and the other individual wasn't? that's the question i'm asking .

    Well you "thought" wrong, which clearly isn't the first time you've done that.

    Excuse me i wasn't being a "sore loser", all i was doing was pointing out an obvious FACT that we were missing half our best players, even your own skipper admitted it.. ,
