Surely varied posts make this site what it is. One person's boring is another's interesting read. If it's boring to someone, just read past it or ignore the thread? I can't see the harm or the need to delete, because one individual decides no-one else will find it interesting.

I may have been guilty in the past of over-posting on a thread or two (and am unable to post on one particular thread for a reason that doesn't break the GPG CoC). I'm sure someone will tell me if I overstep the mark or become a bore though.

I see lots of posts that bore me, others that annoy me and some very repetitive ones. However, others' interpretation of those very same post will be totally different.

Who’s more boring,the hoi poli the sycophants or the condescenders.I’m confused.
If you’re going to attempt to use Greek on the GPG whilst complaining about the consescenders at least get it right please. It’s ‘hoi polloi’. And strictly speaking you don’t need to use ‘the’ in front of the phrase ‘hoi’ as it means ‘the’ in the original.

Banana wouldn’t have made this schoolboy error.

Happy to help on both the condescending and sycophant fronts 🤓

I thought this thread was going to be rubbish, but it's actually great isn't it? Real potential. Anyway that's my three. Back tomorrow. Might save one for the matchday thread. :sorted:

And I suppose we wouldn't be able to join in if the conversation were kept private.

But as someone who frequently falls foul of the moderator I wouldn't even dream of contributing to a thread such as this.

Doh!!
You can’t go wrong on a thread like this. If your post is deemed to be boring, then it complies with the thread title. If you’re commenting on boring posts but regaling us all at the same time, I’d have thought that’s fine too.
As for your Christmas cracker joke quiz thread, ………the less said the better.
By the way, I had an egg for breakfast this morning. What did you have?

The reason the posts were removed was given as “boring” They were not off topic.
Typical it’s “my ball” comment too.
I get posts deleted on here all the time but I don’t piss and moan about it. Have some more Turkey sandwiches!

Re sycophancy, may I be the first to say that yours is a simply marvellous post.

The thread last night about Team selection vs Man City. Mods decided my debate with Hadleigh Bee was boring and so a handful of posts deleted. I care that much but this site is a sad imitation of what it used to be.
Who are the mods to decide it’s boring? Offensive I get, trolling I get but two blokes with opposite views on a chat site discussing team selection without swearing or offending each other ?

On the topic of boring, please have a look at a list of posters who are well known to be protected by the owner and they are what I would call boring, victims who invite criticism with sweeping statements bordering on bullying themselves and then claim to be the persecuted, that is boring !!

Have a great New Year
Wow….even I guessed at Flybee by that description 👍😂😂😂

Plural of condescender. Just repeating what he said. He probably meant ‘patronisers’ (said in a most patronising manner). 😐
You're clearly a smart chap, Mr Hat.
I therefore felt obliged to google ‘Consescenders’.
I conclude that you're not as smart as I thought you were.
Worse still, neither am I. 🤭

Thank you for you sycophancy. And you are right :( Can I pretend it was a test of the GPG’s reading and spelling skills please?

How do we question a deletion as I don't think there's a way of hoi polloi knowing which moderator deleted a post?
You just accept that it’s a great forum and if you upset them and get any sort of ban you swallow it and take your medicine or leave.
It’s the owners ball and if you want to join in you do what you’re told and just bite your tongue or post and take the consequences.

If you don’t want a ban, like his posts, thank him a lot, post about wildlife you’ve seen, films, Covid etc.
Please try and avoid having an opinion about the performances, players, transfer targets or trouble at games, it doesn’t land well with a football fans forum 😀

Ahem, and I quote from the GPG CoC...

14. Posting about football violence (including in an historical context) is not permitted. (!)

But what if it's an "interesting" post? Wouldn't that be deemed off-topic?
