    First They Came For The Flippant...

    Re: First They Came For The Flippant...

    Nicely done!

    Is it me or is 'infraction' an odd choice of word?

    Too near infarction for my liking....

    Incorrectly using a colon instead of a semi colon is enough to get an infraction round here these days. Our message posting future is at the whim of just one man.

    I'm glad that the flippancy are being recognised only they've had an hell of a time.
    Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

    To be fair it's about time this was stamped on on here. You and your clique have been dragging this board down with your flippancy & questionable humour for far too long. I hope this warning and the inevitable ban will give you time to reflect on your actions and how thy affect others.

    Serious head on for a moment. I think Mike enjoys a laugh but perhaps he's trying to cut down flippancy in football threads?

    The colonel has contributed to the board for years, I totally understand that he can be an acquired taste - most of the time I find him to be really funny, but I understand that others don't, you can block him and/or ignore him if you want, but I think "ruining the message board" is a bit harsh.

    The problem is most people would take it up with Mike if they had an issue but not the Colonel he's got to make a big song and dance about it he'll be banging on about this for weeks when no one gives a ****

    Contributed what? He doesn't watch games, rarely talks about football and with his "I keep the board ticking over" has an elevated impression of his own usefulness.

    Quite a few people are put off from posting on here purely because nothing is taken even semi-seriously.

    Glad to see the Colonel finally getting pulled up on his odd behaviour.

    Yeesh, this is heavy stuff. Maybe I should become one of these posters that change their username every time they make a dick of themselves.

    I'm not going to be an apologist for the colonel, but it seems like half the people on this board don't go to games for one reason or another and many of the threads on here aren't football related.
    I totally understand how people don't want to read about crisps, merging in turn or whatever bollocks we talk about, I really do. As I said before, I also totally understand how some people don't find him funny. I do, you don't and that's perfectly fine.

    I take the view that real life is serious enough, we all have demanding jobs and personal issues to deal with, so I like that this MB is a "breather" away from the seriousness of life, but again, that's just me. I like to have a laugh, but I also like to talk about football, not that I will ever be as knowledgeable as people like TOBW.

    Most people take the infractions for what they are. Some people can't.

    Then the Colonel should stay off football threads as he contributes nothing.

    If people stayed off football threads due to having nothing to contribute,there would be 5 threads and 3 posters based upon that logic.

    Viewing the "contribution" of posters is of course utterly subjective rather than objective so complaining using that as a rationale is a bit silly.

    How do you work that out exactly? Plenty of posters contribute their football opinions on football threads, we dont all agree, but at least try and and give an opinion. Colonel doesnt do that, he doesnt mix up the funnys (or unfunnys in his case) and football opinions, hes just constantly looking for attention. He should join mums.net.

    Re: First They Came For The Flippant...

    Who else would post 10 year old gifs if the colonel wasn't here though?

    In fairness I think he's a good poster but he does seem to be everywhere but that's as much down to lack of activity on here as it is him posting.

    That's fair enough, but since your return you've contributed two "grow ups" and a laughing smiley.

    Why only today I started an interesting thread about how fancy the Man City dressing room was that seems to have attracted a number of comments and I didn't even become a big nancy boy about the flippant comments either.

    So now it's "attention seeking" then?

    That narrows it down to a total of 2 threads and 1 poster then...

    Mumsnet? Seriously? Have you ever visited there... *shudder*. If there was a dadsnet that acted the same way, feminists would be up in arms.

    But back to the attention seeking point. It's a message board. If people didn't want attention to their posts then they'd not be signed up, not be posting.

    Colonel has every right, as everyone does, to post what he wants to. Don't value his posts? Just ignore them then. Nothing forces people to go on Holy Grail-esque epic quests to get the infidel banned.

    He clearly doesnt have every right to post what he wants, hence the topic of this thread.

    Not trying to get him banned at all, just agreeing with TH63 theory that Mike doesnt want the pissing around, and derailing, on the football threads.

    If that's the conclusion you've come to, why are you posting shit you think is funny (but isn't, you're about as funny as AIDS) in a football thread I started today? - http://www.ccmb.co.uk/showthread.php...-dressing-room

    What a little tit you are.

    To be fair you're both painfully unfunny at times.
