Wow!

Don't usually drop down as low on the ISF page as this thread ....... looks like I've missed something interesting!

I too have been trying to log onto the Blue Forum (I'm not a regular contributor as it's more geared towards LW Collectors and the Green caters better for HWs. Each to their own).

But ... to find that the entire Forum is closed down ... is this not OTT?!

It looks like the closure of the blue forum was a storm in a teacup as it appears to be up and running again. If so, it appears you were left out of the loop here cockney?

I’ve just checked the blue forum ‘registration agreement terms’, which reads:
“You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed).”

I have re-read my post, which resulted me in being banned and would judge as follows:

Abusive – nope
Obscene – nope
Vulgar – nope
Slanderous – nope
Hateful – nope
Threatening – nope (just referred to UK law)
Sexually-oriented – nope (unless someone has a fetish for chicken… 8-[ )

I have also re-read the moderators subsequent posts criticising my contribution and would judge as follows:

Abusive – Yep
Obscene – Yep
Vulgar – yep
Slanderous – yep
Hateful – yep
Threatening – a bit (especially for a timid fellow)
Sexually-oriented – nope (again, unless someone has a fetish for chicken…)

So, if the Al Murray principle of ‘rules is rules’ applies, the moderator needs to ban himself! :O
Alternatively if the principle of ‘all animals are equal but some are more equal than others’ applies, then Napoleon (oops I mean the moderator) should be OK. ;-)


I now need to check the message the blue forum has sent to my Internet service provider, to see how my reputation as an upstanding pillow of the community has been tarnished! :(

tbh i've been out of town for a day and havent checked either forum yesterday, or even my emails, even as i type this
i do have a life away from Subbuteo you know and a daughter to run around :roll:

also, i think i let you off pretty light, and now you appear to be having a dig?
if you'd like a row we can have a row Steve, thats far easier for me than to try to diffuse your left wing bullshit

if it is open again fair play to Trev for doing what he thinks is right
say hi to your social worker amigo for me :roll:

I am beginning to get the hang of these forums, and the rules around them.

I think Cockney is right that everyone has been very restrained, but actually to be anything else would actually risk being banned from the forum.

Cockney speaks confidently of Fingers politics: of which he is ignorant, and my profession which again is wide of the mark.

So lets stick to facts... no one can be banned for those.

Chris runs this forum NOT you, and certainly not me
the likelyhood of Chris (a good mate) banning me from here is about as likely as you forwarding a coherant sentence in plain English
also tbh if you could get banned for being smug you'd be long gone....

Dont care what Fingers politics are, he can go save a tree for all i care.
As for my politics....well you aint getting a 'bite' there little man
suppose you'll be trying to close this forum down next eh :lol!:

case load slow today? :roll:

2 posts from "Enlightened."

Result:

I'm still very much in the dark.

Would you mind transferring your professed "light" elsewhere?

Bon voyage .... :wave:
