    Can people please look at threads they are starting.

    Here's a tip:

    If you want to start a thread on Clarke being shit /a shit captain or
    A thread on what the test XI should be and how shit the selectors are

    There's a thread somewhere in the last 2 weeks that you can post in.

    Just seen this post today and couldn't agree more, it's **** ing annoying.

    And what is the go with aliases? 'bushranger' has obviously returned under a new name and posts more complete drivel around here almost exclusively on the same topic.

    I understand this is probably the one of the toughest boards to moderate on BFooty but the Victorian inferiority complex is getting very, very tiring..

    NSW V Vic thing has again reached Everest-like proportions. There's a few posters specifically who continue to bang on about this looking for a bite.

    Just a suggestion re the Vic v NSW obsession, why not just have 1 mega thread where Eddie et al. can have their debate and let off a bit of steam? Then you can immediately card people who carry on with the crap in all the other threads.

    Great suggestion because "If a Victorian was playing they'd do better," or "See why so many New South Welshman are selected, they are just simply better than dud Victorians" is just so tedious. Every thread and often by the same people.

    New Nevill thread is a good example of how a particular poster can't help but throw the NSW conspiracy theory in there.

    It was always going to happen, and without adequate mod patrolling (CJ does his best but where are the rest :confused:) and guidelines like atm it will continue to happen because people know others react. Some people don't know they're doing it as we are mostly slaves to conformity and just say what others do, but this needs to be noted and they need to just get a 'g'day how you going, now can you please be aware of this, ect' and the ringleaders such as Eddie need to be stopped.

    Of course its all the Victorians that are at fault, nothing wrong with those other posters who will always bag a Victorian player...

    As of now, any of this NSW (or similar, but its usually NSW) crap gets a yellow card.

    Calling an umpire making a bad decision 'cheating Indians' comes under this. I'm not going to go back and card everyone who has done it today, but expect a day off if you do it from now on.

    I think it's pretty clear that it's mostly one way traffic and we all know which way that traffic is going. You'll get people trolling all players, but there's one state that cops it the most and one state that seems to dish it out the most.

    The two posts Kram quoted are perfect examples of state bias being brought into the discussion for no reason other than to provoke/whinge. The mods are stamping it out, and it's about time.

    It does go both ways though, you do get posters from certain states who will always say x player is shit because they come from y state

    There is also plenty of baiting going on from people north and they know some people will always take the bait and its those who take the bait who get punished

    But looking at the test side now, it may become a bit of a light hearted joke in the near future, lets be honest there is right now only 1 player holding up peoples arguments and he is there because of his state, maybe not so much they wont drop someone from there but more same state as the skipper. If he went then most of it would die down pretty quickly

    Rule added about posting/requesting illegal streams. There is a site-wide policy that this is not allowed, if you break it you will get carded.

    so as far as i can tell, we've got two problems with this board as it stands: Ian Dargie ruining every second thread, and violating like half the stuff in the "Don’t be annoying." section of weevil's OP, to the point that it's pointless engaging in any thread they have a presence in, and the long running problem of posters feeling the need to talk about how hot some woman shown on TV is, which is pretty obviously unacceptable. I've been reporting this stuff lately but I should bother doing that? Ian Dargie is still running amok, and as far as I can tell, people haven't been told to stop being creeps in the match day thread

    Is Brad Haddin a protected player on this board?

    Amazing some people can post nothing but negative shit about every player, but 1 negative comment about Haddin is disallowed? Or maybe some posters are just protected trollers...

    I would ask the mod in question, but it appears the mods on this board are now secretive and you don't know who it is...
