Sorry but I've seen a lot worse in there than what I got banned for.

Tongue in cheek isn't allowed anymore?
No, tongue in cheek isn't allowed in that specific thread. If there's things in there that are worse, it's because I didn't see it. But the people that have been threadbanned from that thread had been given warning first.

I'm not going to play blame game.

I considered it to be positive in my eyes, you've seen differently. I think given how I could've been tonight, what I posted wasn't bad but I do appreciate the clarification.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your night :)

No tongue in cheek?

Didn't realise we had a bunch of snowflakes for mods.

Probably best you delete this.

A post about looking forward to the end of the season posted a week ago isn't very positive yet still remains.

How is that different to looking forward to Christmas?

Welcome to the Fremantle board, and please enjoy your stay!

Some things we want you to be aware of:

1. Trolling Fremantle - We welcome other teams' supporters to post on the Fremantle board, they can offer different perspectives on issues and we like a bit of friendly banter. Please remember though, if you're here to troll and be disrespectful to our posters/team, your presence will not be tolerated for long.

2. Civility - Differing opinions can lead to heated exchanges, whilst we encourage very robust and passionate discussions on this board, we also want posters to treat others with respect and play the ball and not the man.

3. Content - Obviously do not post pornographic images, nudes, faeces, over the top toilet humour, animals copulating or other lewd acts. Less obviously, do not post pictures of scantily clad women. Avoid celebrating or wishing injury on players. In short, keep your posting tasteful.

4. On Topic - Conversation evolves as it is created, so we do not expect thread topics to be strictly adhered to. While this is all well and good, people generally read threads for information and opinions, not off topic chit chat. Please keep on topic, and if a thread has diverged, please take ownership and respectfully steer it back on course. Non-football related threads should be posted on the Purple Hoarde sub forum.

5. Racism, Sexism and Homophobia - If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, then don't say it here. We are open and inclusive and will not tolerate negative generalisations based on race, culture, gender or sexual preference.

6. Moderators - We will do our best to moderate this board fairly and in keeping with the above rules. We will not tolerate abuse from posters, nor will we tolerate posters who waste our time with long running PM exchanges or spurious post reports. If you feel as though a moderator has not performed their duty correctly, please contact bigfooty admin using the link at the bottom of the page.

Disclaimer - Whilst enforcing the rules we will take into account the different histories of each poster and the context of discussions. This can lead to irregularities with moderating at different times and different moderators.
I am bumping this post because I feel this board has become a bit unpleasant. I think point 2 about civility is really important. We should all treat each other with respect.

I think it helps make for good relations if opinions are expressed as just that - opinions. Say "IMHO" or "I think" rather than expressing an opinion as fact.

Also assigning negative character traits to other posters just because they have an opinion about something is really not nice behaviour.

I am sure I sound like a goody two shoes, but I have always enjoyed my time on this board and have very much enjoyed meeting other posters in the flesh. I want to continue to enjoy spending time on this board, and instead I find myself bristling too often about aggressive and disrespectful posts.

One of my posts got lost in the thread about the Collyer

I made reference to him being a filthy drug cheat and now the whole post is gone.

Do we have a board rule about making reference to documented facts?

That seems fair enough

Not only facts but when it's an Essendon player it's allowed but not if it's Freo

I wouldn't have deleted it if I was a mod but people need to get over the Essendon thing.

JMT weren't you a mod? Retired quickly :)

Hey Mods,

i have noted over the weekend that there seems to be a fault with some posts double and triple posting the same comment simultaneously. Don't know if anyone else has flagged this. it still appears to be happening today.

You can say that again! It's a known issue. The hamsters are being repaired today hopefully

Are permanent thread bans a thing? Surely that would be a solution to the snarky comments and abusive diatribes, rather than locking the best thread on BigFooty?

They certainly are. If you think this is something that's needed, throw me or one of the other mods a pm
