I'm asking the question (repeatedly) as you earlier claimed only the post with the photo should be looked at, and that the whole board didn't need looking through. Then you're arguing a completely different point and decided only accusing people of illegal acts needs looking at. Then once again change to all potential libellous accusations.

So which is it? And if not the entire board, then what, bearing in mind the principle is the important factor?

And where you're right that it's not my place to decide what is and isn't a true fact, it's very much my place to make a judgement on behalf of the board admin over what is acceptable content, and that includes making judgements on how likely something is to have its basis in truth or in unfounded accusation. Consistently. Across the whole board.

You agree that you aren't in a position to decide what is or isn't true, but then contradict yourself in the same sentence by claiming that you are in a position to make a decision on whether something is based in truth or not. In other words, if you think its true then you allow it! The only acceptable way to operate is to not allow these type of personal accusations to be made at all, criminal or libellous or both. It's not difficult, doesn't take time, and its fair.

I would politely request you discuss this issue with the other moderators as I do not agree with your judgement.
You're very good at telling me what you think I meant instead of reading what I actually said. There's no contradiction, I accept I can't say what is 100% true as I haven't personally seen evidence that confirms or refutes the facts, but I can make a judgement on what is most likely true based on the reliability of the source.

Also there's been one other mod in here backing me up and I've openly stated that the site admins can ultimately override me and I will accept their decision. I'm not sure what more you want other than for me to delete a one off post that has a small chance of being untrue, while ignoring every other post on the board that includes a personal accusation that I also haven't been privy to any evidence of.

Sorry but it's got to be fair and consistent treatment for all posts.

If somebody complains about another potentially libellous post then you can look into it, if not, then you shouldn't have any worries. As it is, I am requesting you remove one potentionally libellous post. If you insist that you can't do that because it means you'd have to remove all potentially libellous posts then so be it. I am sure the admins will decide if that is a valid reason for doing nothing. If so, then I will accept their judgement and that's the end of it.
It's nothing to do with having to review any other posts, but as you've continuously ignored the actual point I've made it doesn't surprise me that you may think that. That reason was only posted in response to your calls for completely inconsistent treatment and I haven't claimed that's the reason I've chosen to leave the post here.

I've clearly stated that, in my opinion, the opening post is most likely truthful and I don't feel it puts the board at any kind of risk of legal action. Furthermore, I think it's actually of benefit to the club to "name and shame" people known to cause trouble. So I'm personally choosing to not delete it, but the site admins may want to be a little more cautious and that will always override my opinion - however, the next time something similar crops up, I will again use my judgement and act accordingly until such a time that Scott or Mike may want to act differently.

It's amazing to think that just a few weeks ago we were being accused of over the top censorship and deletion of posts!

Surely the only person who can say its libellous is the subject, the fact that we know it isnt kinda just shows you as being an argumentative tit.

But on the plus side, thanks to mobi the lad in the photo is no longer the biggest clown in the thread.

Seriously, I have never seen anyone put so much effort and ignore so much reason just to be contrary.

Right - lovely and well done mobi and everyone else.

We have got a game of football on tonight haven't we?

Shall we focus on that instead?

Strictly speaking shouldn't debates in this thread be moved to the off topic area?

Come on Darlo!

So it is against the forum rules to post a picture of one of the most well known memes in the history of the internet? Do you live in some bizarre, insular, cotton wool world? Is that against the forum rules? Please tell me how it is??

Thanks for the abuse though, just what a responsible mod should do.

No, its not trolling, if I believe something I'll stick with it. I like to argue my point. If it was trolling I'd be on here a lot more often causing trouble for the sake of it, but I hardly ever post. I only post if I genuinely believe in the point I am making.

If you read the thread you'll see that others agreed with me as well, but people ignored their posts, trying to make out it was simply me against the world. It wasn't.

The hypocrisy over that meme was pathetic.

This again? And on a match day too when you know nobody is around to keep an eye on it.

Seriously, you asked for the mods to look at it and would accept their decision, then you're on bitching and moaning about it again. Get a fucking life...
