Self moderating here, but is there a reason for the, what appears to be slightly over-zealous moderation this afternoon? There are a few posts I’ve seen in the passing that are no longer there. From a quick glance they appeared to be praising the behaviour of the fans at ibrox. As the yoof are so fond of saying; “hashtag” :irony:

Thanks for the reply, it is genuinely appreciated. As is the thankless task of moderation that you (and others) perform, without which I have no doubt that the blog would have foundered long before now.

I had caught sight of the dreaded, highly contentious ‘S’ word but didn’t mention it for fear of becoming part of a discussion that we weren’t meant to be having.

As I said I had only skimmed over so wasn’t properly aware of content or context and that was the reason for posing the question. It is frustrating trying to read the blog when outside influences (namely work, so shouldn’t really complain too much! ?) prove a constant hinderance.

I hope you don’t think I was questioning the motivation of your moderation or suggesting any ulterior motive as nothing could be further from my mind. I should probably refrain from looking at the blog until I am settled and able to give it my full attention and that way I won’t be quite so confused – heaven-knows I’m bad enough at times! 😳 😆

Keep up the good work! ?

Has the PM facility been removed?? All I get is the message ‘Page not found’ ?!

Hmmm, where to start?!

Jack, you know that you are swimming against the tide here. I can feel empathy towards the position you find yourself in. I have disagreed with a lot of what you have said over the period of time I have ‘known you’ through this blog. But, as I stated in a very early spat we had, I will defend and back your right to an alternative view to the hilt (which, even to me seems a bit perverse considering I may not agree with said view!)

Having read what you sent to me I must confess to finding it a lot less contentious than I thought it was going to be. I thought it would be earth-shatteringly explosive. Not in my eyes.

By the same token do not take that as a ringing endorsement of your ‘key-rattling’! By naming individuals you almost asked the mods to censure you, akin to a child being told not to take a biscuit but taking one anyway whilst smirking at the parent!

I agree that at times the level of moderation is puzzling. And it certainly does come across as exhibiting favouritism at times. In my own mind I put that down to different mods being on shift at different times, thereby demonstrating what people often fail to take into account when discussing/criticising a lot of our subject matter – an individuals’ perception. I myself have been censured for trying to raise a point I felt worthy of discussion only to see the same point being posted on by others with no apparent similar restrictions enforced. Different mods, different views, different perceptions? So yes, it can be frustrating when it seems that ‘he can talk about it so why can’t I’.

I’m no big hitter on here. I most certainly know my place in the cheap seats, hanging on to the coat-tails of the great and the good whilst sticking my neb in now and again. But for what it’s worth, I really don’t think there was any need for TSFM to take your post above piece by piece writing what (s)he did. It comes across as a bit puerile and, personally, I find it unbecoming.

I think it would be good to realise though Jack, that although there is a large contingent of Celtic supporters on here there are surprises in amongst the regulars. I thought I had most sussed out in my early days of visiting the site but, even still I find the odd surprise when an allegiance is declared. It’s worth remembering that not everyone who abhors what has happened and indeed continues to happen within Scottish football, it’s governance, and it’s coverage in the media does so due to a hatred of all things “Rangers”. Unfortunately for supporters like yourself, it just so happens that a large majority of the bad things have involved your team, hence drawing the ire of a cross section of fans.

And finally, I saw your post talking of ‘…exposing it for what it is’, or words to that effect. I was a bit bemused and amused in equal measure at that one. I put that down to the blogging equivalent of flicking the bird at TSFM in a touch of pique?! Happens to us all!

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One

Do you not think that he might hold out for a better offer…?!

Aw the very best folks, may aw yer lums reek lang!

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One

Watburton sacked by Forest.

Who Is Conning Whom?
I was more taken by the utter astonishment that this had come to pass. After saying for the last couple of days that McInnes would be shown in a bad light for saying that he was committed to AFC and then obeying destiny. Now, when it has been laid to rest and he has turned them down, reaffirming what he stated last week, there is sheer bemusement at this turn of events. Blow-torches come to mind – would go well with all the red faces ?

Who Is Conning Whom?
FOF, I was of the understanding that the monies due from the SPL, as was, were distributed amongst the remaining 11 clubs for the simple reason that the club originally due the money no longer existed. I may have conflated several threads of the tapestry in coming to this belief so if anyone else can confirm…

Who Is Conning Whom?
Jimbo, I believe the only ‘talks’ McInnes held were with his chairman, Stewart Milne, and his family. Permission was never granted for the ibrox club to speak to him.
