Deleted thread?

Why was the whole thread deleted, instead of just the post(s) containing "personal attacks."

Most of it was fair and balanced I thought, with people making their point without insulting anyone.

Surely reasonable debate is a good thing? People can have different opinions on players, some don't rate Charlie, others do, but to not allow discussion just creates bad feeling imo.

Good evening Kentstripe.

A descision was taken earlier this evening to move the thread to the Moderation Sin Bin. We generally do not delete threads but keep them so all Mods can review.

Moderators will review the thread tomorrow (Thursday).

It was 'personnel attacks'. Kinda reminds me of landmines. Anyhow, you know how it works on here.

What about free speech on here ?. Seems to be one rule for some and another rule for others.

No, but removed threads aren't generally advertised. They tend to just disappear.

Clearly it's not coming back, they never do. "Sin bin" is just an excuse to not give a valid reason for removing it in the first place.

It's patently obvious to the many as to the reason t/d!

No, because we are still discussing it.

We are (fairly) normal fans and we don’t do 24/7 shifts here. Please bear with us, apologies for the length of time it has taken.

Is it? Surely a football forum is about discussing the team which inevitably means discussing players. Go on ANY other football forum and you'll see the same. Maybe I missed something where someone said something personal about cc but I don't think anything said was out of line from what you'd expect when talking about any football club.

Reverse psychology obviously works in some cases :lol:

Free speech is one thing.
Hurting the feelings and wrecking the confidence of one of our players is another.

Dear oh dear :roll:
What shall we talk about on a football forum if we can't talk about what we think we can do to improve, which inevitably is going to come down to our weaknesses which is in turn is going to come down to who we think is good enough or not.
Let's start a new thread just for nfr, we could title it 'isn't everything in the whole world simply wonderful'

It was said with tongue-in-cheek, I have had three posts on here recently deleted by the powers that be, containing no swearing, no rudeness, no naming of people, no slights, only comments with humour, but deemed not suitable to be included in this Forum, hence my opinion above that even you take exception to.Free speech ?.

GETCARTER, your posts moved to the SinBin say otherwise. If you disagree, please PM Referee. If you'd like to try Free Speech, there's place near Marble Arch.

In the meantime, when you are on this forum, please follow the Forum Rules, or face a ban.
