    I dunno, probably disagreed with him about something and didn't back down about it haha. I think the genesis of it happened before I was a prominent member of the forum. I barely posted for my first 6-12 months. Funny thing about it all was that we mostly gave each other **** rather than anyone else.

    Watching the City game unsurprisingly, will catch the Pedro goal later on.

    There was always a clique..well various cliques really and yes they will attack and bully you if you challenge them and this is not a criticism of CW but just general human nature. We feel more secure in a group and we generally gravitate towards conformism to remain part of the group and then when one guy doesn't fit in, we attack and bully that person. But I guess the difference was the number of active members and the level of interaction overall. They were just so many active members that you still had enough members not part of a clique to have a decent and interesting discourse.

    Now with Forum activity overall on a decline, and so many of the old posters no longer participating, the groupism and 'let's attack the lone dissenter' tends to dominate the small number of good discussions we still have here.

    Nah.. not in CC. As I said, the interminable posting wars between TEC-Richard or TEC-CC and then CC-Sanz or any of these countless back and forths were actually easy to ignore as there was quality cricket discussion going on around it all. And inspite of those boring as **** circling arguments, there was at least the very very slim silver lining that there was actual discussion on cricket at a forum named "Cricket Chat". That has genuinely gone away these days.

Really feeling sorry for the long term members there, having too put up with that, a real sad sight.

    Cricket Web
    Is the ideal model of a cricket forum. The discussion of changing too Xen Foro was the theory of democracy in action and was one impressive sight to see.
    You know cricketweb staff member I was once infracted or warned for using the term "gay". Sometimes I think mods don't referee the rules here just their personal prejudices.
