As I recall you asked whether I was "that fucking thick and gullible" .........Perhaps we could all try exchanging robust opinions without the need for aggression and abuse.
I’m not usually one to get involved in Board internecine warfare, but I don’t think B@stard was referring to the odd robust “fuck off” one on one. He is obviously big enough to speak for himself, but I think he was calling out pack bullying.
It’s not just the 70 or so lurkers who don’t post. And let’s face it, 60 of those are probably aliases of Rhys. For mine, it’s more about good ballers who’ve been driven away over the years by Walt, Oaf and their acolytes.
There’s been plenty of examples - the latest seems to be Tycipa. He didn’t always see eye to eye with me - and nothing wrong with that if you believe in free speech and tolerance. But he’s a decent baller - almost 6000 posts over 8 years - insights on a number of topics not least Leeds.
Now, driven away by bullying. Walt even made a snide reference to his cancer diagnosis and tried to use that to belittle him:

Finally, your diagnosis does not give you the right to repeatedly be a snide cunt at me without eventual reply.
So much for our resident cancer champion (if you’re gullible enough to believe such an obvious flexing bullshitter). And not the first time he’s done it either - even bringing family and kids into his warped and odious hatred:

Sweat dreams!.....Given the 15 year delay in peak cancer incidence after Chernobyl, I'd expect your kids to be among the adolescent cohort leading the charge to the top of the cancer medals table, wouldn't you Vamps?
So, BC, great you call for less abuse. But funny how (and not just you) such appeals always seem to be made following a post by someone standing up to the bullies - yet never in response to posts by the bullies themselves. Double standards? Or you afraid of them too?
If the latter - no need - if you stand up to them they run a mile like the cowards they are, and hide behind the cowardly “on ignore” function.
