My messages kept disappearing and I thought it was me doing it on phone. I went to desk top to send Bannana a message about someone deleting my threads and found I was barred whilst actually doing this message. No reason given just two messages saying a 1 point infraction then a minute later a message saying 100 point infraction. These arrived as I was typing my pm to banana which then wouldnt send cos I was barred. If people dont like me they should say so but they are lying on the GPG cos they know I cant get back at them. After 53 years of following Brentford,after all the work my parents did for nothing,the support of both my grandads and on great grandad I feel like walking away. These people have no balls".
    But there were actually posts on here from those who run the site telling him to calm it numerous times. They weren't private. They're here in the public domain for all to see, telling him he's posting at a ridiculous level about the same topic with the same view.

    Oh my God. People get into such a tizz. I will get in touch with moribee in due course, he can also get in touch with me via the "Contact Us" facility.

    I've never publically discussed the reasons for people having to take a holiday. I've don't believe that that is the right way to go about things. I'd rather keep it a personal dialogue. I've seen other boards have announcements about who has been banned and giving chapter and verse on the reasons why. I doubt any of those posters would want to come back under those circumstances.

    To answer a few more points. Annoying Banana is not a reason for getting banned. Taking-over the messageboard with a single-agenda item is a reason for getting banned (see Forum Rules under spamming). In short if you are posting more than one in every (say) 10-20 messages on a thread then perhaps one should use the self-moderation feature. I do try and gently point-out to individuals when this happens, some get the joke and others blindly carry on.

    Its a real shame anyone has to be banned but I cant deny that certain repeated posting has been more than irritating recently. For some reason, quite possibly due to the postponed games, there has been a lot of posts that felt very personal towards certain individuals and far more concerningly towards the club. I hope whomever has been banned did get a PM and a chance to calm down but rules are rules and are generally necessary.

    sorry but i do notice a lot of your posts contain jibes like this, and i do think it's done to get a reaction.

    How would i know who is banned? I just said if they were being banned for being negative that it would be wrong.

    For what it's worth I think RoB is a know-it-all bore on the GPG and also when I'm sitting in his vicinity at GP. However, I didn't think he did anything that warranted a ban.

    I think it's quite sad that people aren't bothering to post on here any more because every time they dare question the status quo they are shot down in flames with the intention of being made to feel inferior.

    I started allowing the GPG to wind me up, got into a war of words with someone which wasn't doing anyone any favours, got a few laughable threatening pms and decided that the www is a strange place.

    No more gaskets blown over team choices in the "team for Saturday" that include Woodman after yet another fine Bidwell performance, no more shock at 5 more posts in the Grella thread after Clayton has put in a good display etc etc.

    I lost a lot of my Brentford mojo with Scott and haven't got it back yet, I know a fair few feel the same, no thought of going to Colchester etc, booking a holiday in Feb without caring who we were playing, I'm sure it will return one day. I feel that following BFC at the moment is a bit of a going through the motions hobby, it should be more than that.

    Much love.
    Your just going through the menopause. Don't worry you'll come through it and be back to your old self in no time.......... I went through it in the late 80's and even left the country for nearly a decade. I'm now back to my old 'It's Brentford innit' self now. Have faith.......

    If they ban many more they might as well shut it down, doesn't look like many post these days in any case.

    There have been 4 recently who have been put on 'gardening leave'. Others that don't post anymore do so out of choice but I bet they read it still.

    One of the great untruths is that we (the moderators) are constantly banning people. It doesn't matter how many times we say it doesn't happen, the myth remains. I suppose it supports people like Sweepy's view that it's the case but I'm afraid it's not. I challenged Sweepy a few weeks ago to share with everyone how many times I'd banned him / anyone else because he suggested that I might ban him again because of a particular post.

    He didn't respond of course (the facts would have been getting in the way of a bad argument) but I would like to point out apart from obvious spammers I can't recall banning anyone in the last couple of years, particularly Sweepy whose posts can usually be comfortably ignored.
    I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

    I think you'll find you could count the number of users who've been banned over the past couple of years on the fingers of one hand.

    im not surprised Mori was banned, his posts were tedious and constantly referring to wars, how animals are better than humans and Terry should be able to say what he liked.I found ROB posts quite interesting although a bit long

    Agreed. The thing with ROB is a lot of what happens here happens in dialogue, not just one person ranting to an unresponsive audience. So ROB had long become tiresome, but if kept going because those he digs at kept responding to it. I've started to learn to ignore stuff, especially when those posts are by people I've tangled with previously. It's too easy to keep grudges going indefinitely.

    Exactly. I don't understand what is meant by 'trolling' or 'spamming' but ROB responded to people responding and rarely with the same comment. Same point maybe but not the same comment. This is sometimes required on here as some are so quick to jump on the defensive that they don't actually read what has been written. It has actually happened in this thread already. I've seen few (if any) posts from ROB where he's just had post after post of ranting. He normally responds with quotes of those responding to him. He may not 'get it' but I wouldn't consider that any more controversial or breach of c of c than people constantly banging on about ... bringing Ryan Dickson back (for example).

    Its not a FORUM if you cant give your opinion or let others have theirs. Not everyone will agree with everything.
    Learn to listen to others and let everyone speak. Just my opinion.

    No issue with terms and conditions or how they are enforced. If people are to stupid to calm down after a gentle reminder then frankly they deserved to get banned.

    Would it help to overcome this suspicion if there was a running total of 'currently suspended' next to the number of members on the front page? No names required.

    We've discussed this before and decided against it. The numbers would be distorted by the users who just join to spam the site.

    PS : I realise that I banned an away fan recently so my "no ban" post was incorrect. Gloating away fans annoy the **** out of me.

    There are guidelines to abide by. Keep within those and you or anyone can have their say. It's not too hard to understand.
