You will have noticed a thread containing unnecessary comments has been removed by the moderators. Please can we be civil and respect other users, some of the comments were disgusting and totally uncalled for.

The moderators chose to remove it. I don't know if you can delete individual posts.

The thread had already been removed before I had a chance to see any unacceptable posts, surely this thread can be reinstated by the moderators with these unacceptable posts removed, it was a very interesting debate going on before it was taken off.

I have to agree with Richie. There were some interesting points made but also some totally unacceptable. The moderators should warn the persons responsible, I feel. I've always felt that everybody should be very careful before putting any message on a public forum.

 

As far as deleting is concerned I thought it was possible to delete the contents of individual posts by blanking them out in white.

Have the posters of the unacceptable comments been given a warning by the moderators?

 

I was wondering if any of mine had been classed as unsavoury?

I haven't had a warning, however there was no abusive foul language etc... In my posts. I've seen much worse on these forums go unpunished.

I haven't had a warning, however there was no abusive foul language etc... In my posts. I've seen much worse on these forums go unpunished.

 

For some reason I couldn't post last night (or all last week for that matter) but I did leave a voicemail message for Soss asking him to air my comments - I;m guessing Mike never picked this up.

 

Anyway, the entire thread was deleted because we wanted to get the offending comments off asap.  The site owner has been informed and almost certainly if they can't give us the names of the people involved then our next port of call will be the police and the club solicitor.  The three people who posted the defamatory and truly offensive stuff WILL be banned from CP for life if we can get their names.

 

I too think it was a shame to delete other stuff and DWB will try to get them back on,

 

As a director I have to say that the BoD have no problem with people airing their opinions and criticising us - it goes with the territory.  I can say with regard to the finance director that he did NOT ask to continue and there are very good and valid reasons which have prevented us making a statement to date (agreed between KH and the BoD).

 

Whatever anybody thinks we do not hold information back without a good reason - anybody who has sat in the boardroom with me (and a few on here have)  knows I would be vehemently opposed to any such goings on.

 

On a personal view I just wish some of you out there would grow some b~~~~~ and post under your own name (or make it well known who you are).  The vast majority do this and as I say feel free to criticise but to those who hide behind a pseudenym I say have a good look at yourself.  The law does allow for you to be controlled and in the case of the three offenders in this case it is highly likely that this course of action will be pursued.

 

Anyway, see you all at the presentation evening later today.  If you have any concerns just ask a member of the BoD.

Keith, sorry I get that many calls a day I never check my voice mail. I try not to criticise the BoD but sometimes a simple statement prevents all this conjecture I'm sure a simple "Keith Holt standsdown" statement would have been sufficient. We do trust the BoD and I know you all personally and like to think I would say exactly the same to your face as I would here. (you know what I'm like...lol) 

 

I'm not sure the route you are taking with these guys is the correct one, however that is your decision as a board, a ban from here in my mind would be more appropriate as no names were mentioned an apology would be hard given. I'm sure that if the posters had thought about what they were saying and the upset caused they would not have typed it.

 

Good luck tonight and I hope it goes well but unfortunately I will not be there due to other commitments.

 

PS...think you all know me...Mike "gobby" Sunderland... :mail:
